Staff is really nice, most are knowledgeable and we all share a love for the outdoors.
My issues are with the outdatedness of the company. - terrible product search program - slow and frustrating - understaffed, especially during high season constant divide between cleaning and helping. there should be people that just clean. - outdated scheduling, schedules are ONLY posted in the backroom. they say this is for privacy... but it's just outdated there are many programs that highlight privacy and allow your schedule privately emailed to the individual. - You have to go online and print your own cheque which cannot for many e-deposits services be validated. Outdated - why not e-deposit... - during my time there, I had little to know pk training unless it was a company rep that came... but until that time I just kind of had to wing it..
steady schedule, nice staff, discount, employee snack area, laid back
At first working at SAIL was an enjoyable experience, my coworkers were amazing and the management was good at the start. After 3 months in my department manager became very rude, and would point me out and make fun of me to other coworkers, my manager would talk behind my back, and belittle me during my shift. They would make rude and unnecessary comments that were not related to work at all. When I first applied they told me any day I needed off that were not busy holiday days (i.e Black Friday, Christmas, etc) they would not hesitate and allow to have that personal day. But instead they would always deny my request, they did not hold to their word. The whole management would belittle and talk behind your back. The management was also very sexist and would allow one gender more leniency than the other. When it came to disciplinary actions, if they do not like you, you would be the example, whereas if you are liked everything would slip under the rug. Also, even some of the managers do not follow the code of conduct when it comes to other employees, and allow their feelings to get in the way of the work capabilities which is unprofessional. In all, my coworkers and the customers was the only good experience I had working there, but the managers made my experience terrible to a point where I would rethink working there everyday.
