Schedules are always late.
When you say you can't work on a specific day of the week, they still have the nerve to call you on that day to come in.

Some employees take time off without a valid excuse.

There are favourites (even if the another person worked harder).

Employees are non-sympathetic at whatever you are going through in life.

SOME of the management has a negative attitude towards some sales associates and should work on that (eye rolls, sighs, unpleased facial expression, lazy body posture), that really affects the workers' performance y'know? (you need to set a good example for others)

Some employees steal sales, so instead of putting your name for the transaction, they put theirs or sometimes whoever helped the customer the least (affects the accuracy of your sales and you sometimes get in trouble for it lol).

Workers slack off, some even go home due to being "sick" when it really just looks like they just don't want to work or some just chill out at the back office to pass time or some take longer breaks rather than 30 minutes.

If they were to ever call you in to cover someone's shift they would expect you to be there in like 5 minutes when you live 20 minutes away.

When somebody doesn't do their job at all, it is passed onto someone else when that person really could've done it themselves.

Management just doesn't appreciate their workers at all, no matter how hard you work.

The back room is total chaos, boxes all over, metal pieces sticking out everywhere (can cause injury), shoes boxes are left on the ground sometimes, there's no space for worker to

Management at the Crossiron location (Where I worked so I can't speak for all locations in Calgary) was totally incapable of anything but gossip and being lazy. They constantly wait for the main manager to go home for the day and then proceed to sit in the back storage area. If they weren't back there they would just talk and not work at the cash desk instead while the associates manned all the zones. On top of this, the amount of gossip that takes place at that store is astronomically bad, and you feel like a piece of garbage when you realize other people have been lying about you to get farther in the company. Other employees only sit on cash all day and steal sales to make themselves look better to the higher-ups so they don't get into trouble for constant low sales. Even though there is no commission you get tracked on sales and someone taking it can mean you being fired.

Other than the discount Roots gives there isn't much else positive about. I'm not saying everyone that works there is a terrible person, but management makes the experience an utter nightmare. Do not work at the Crossiron location if you want to keep your sanity.
Points positifs
discount, some staff are friendly
Points négatifs
pretty much everything else, MANAGEMENT

Points négatifs
few employees for the busy parts of the year

This is a great working environment for working students who are willing to work for Part Time. The customers most of the time have been roots customers for a long time and love the products. The leather goods are great and are worth the price.

Roots shows great care for employees through training, involvement and compensation. Room to move up in management. Upper management is very involved in running of stores and communicating with all employees.

It was not a fast passed atmosphere that I was used to from working in restaurant kitchens for almost 10 years which created a new challenge on how to keep myself and the staff busy.

First off, I'd like to say that I really enjoy working at Roots. Mainly because of the environment, and my coworkers. However, my attitude changes when it comes to the corporate side of things. It's a decent job for someone just starting out in the working world, but after working there for half a year, one might expect to get a raise. Not here. Perhaps it's a similar story for most retail stores, but you'd think that after hearing the Roots Radio commercials everyday that praise their hard-working, dedicated employees, they should care a bit more about the satisfaction of their employees. Now obviously everyone employee's Roots experience will differ, but I'd be willing to bet that if you asked 5 randomly-selected Roots employees across Canada if they were completely satisfied with their job, 4 would say no. It's a relaxed job, doesn't require a lot of skill or knowledge, and I actually wear their clothes (with our staff discount). But if I may suggest a small tweak: please pay your staff a bit better. I work hard, but I would work harder if I received a raise. Incentive goes a long way.
Points positifs
50% discount on clothing
Points négatifs
Poor wage

Roots is a store that is very passionate about giving quality service and hospitality. Their eco-friendly clothing and athletic merchandise makes it the store that everyone wants to drive by. A typical day at Roots would be making a sales goal for the company by selling to customers in a cooperative and friendly manner. The management is very nice but at times they want you to push the "Roots Spirit" so much that you feel that you are not being realistic with your customers. In other words it's just sell! sell! sell! Aside from that there are many benefits from working at Roots such as store discounts and Roots bonus benefits for making your sales goal. Overall working at Roots is a great place and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to work in retail in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
Points positifs
discounts off clothes, and many opportunities for bonus pay
Points négatifs
you have on-call shifts (in other words shifts that can be removed)
