Easygoing workplace
Business Intelligence Analyst (Ancien employé) –  Barrie, ON12 septembre 2019
With the office located in Barrie, I found the office to be free of politics I was used to working at various companies in the GTA. Very relaxed, friendly atmosphere where people rarely work late.
Points positifs
Store discount

Relaxed, Great Pay
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Kemptville, ON11 septembre 2019
You get paid minimum wage in most cases plus generous commission, which ends up being more than enough to live off of. The environment is relaxed as long as you hit your targets, which are fairly easy once you know what you are doing. My favorite retail place to have ever worked!

Sales Associate (Employé actuel) –  Lindsay, ON4 septembre 2019
Amazing place to work in an excellent location. The store management, along with the entire district are incredibly motivating, and inspiring to even the seasonal employees. Definitely recommend working for this company.

Very poor place to work at
Customer Care / Help Desk (Ancien employé) –  Barrie, ON20 août 2019
Nobody knows what they are doing. There are a selective few that are fantastic but they are dwarfed by the amount of people who lack skill-sets.

The core values are thrown out the windows, managers do what they want and don't hold themselves accountable to scheduling, or adhere to attendance. They lack support and knowledge and many of the staff were the ones dictating the show.

promised wage increases and commissions that never happen
Points positifs
there are none
Points négatifs
everything

bad company doesnt care about employees
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Barrie, ON19 août 2019
do not recommend working for this nightmare of a company at all, worked here for 4 years and the lack of care for employees is ridiculous, barely any room for growth in the company, part time employees working full time hours without the benefits and don't get comfortable you could work almost full time hours for a year or more and then be cut back to 15/week cause you're a part time and they don't owe you anything, no financial security or peace of mind. I have also seen a few stores close and employees and management were let go with no notice what so ever not to mention management are not aloud to be references so good luck finding a new job even with 4 years of experience having no one to speak to that is garbage. And of course cant forget the constant pressure to sell bell and reach targets, nothing you do will ever be good enough you can hit your targets and they still want more, the sales tactics are so pushy and unrealistic, they expect you to sell multiple services to every customer and it makes a lot of customer interactions awkward no matter how good at sales you are, I've seen so many customers get uncomfortable and just try to leave with management shoving stuff down their throat. Maybe if your a uni student and looking for a seasonal gig go for it but if your looking for a career keep looking!!

Fun environment
SALES ASSOCIATE (Employé actuel) –  Dauphin, MB19 août 2019
Working here every day is pretty fun with co-workers and sales is also a very great part of it.

A typical day at work starts with learning about the promotions and sales going on and work on it.

Reasonable place to work
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Barrie, ON17 août 2019
The Source offers decent benefits, pay (minimum with the opportunity for raises & commission), and depending on which store you are in and your manager, flexible hours. Great job for post-secondary students.

High expectations to sell cellphones and residential services, commissions are nice and if that is a strength you can make decent money even as part-time.

Stores where associates are not fighting over commissions make this a really fun job, but the atmosphere can be toxic when people fight over customers.

Slow times of the year can be very stressful as there are punishments for not meeting sales targets, up to and including termination, so having a rough spring leading into the slower summers can be stressful.

I strongly recommend this company/job if you are a competitive but team-focused person. Lone wolves will struggle to make friends and can be excluded.

Very informative job, learned so much new stuff.
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Winnipeg, MB26 juillet 2019
The job was very interesting with a very diverse staff. The manager was understanding, responsible and cared about his job very much. He supervised everyone himself and made sure all staff are getting their jobs done.

Great Place to Manage - High Standards
Manager (Employé actuel) –  Alberta, Canada24 juillet 2019
The Source is a great place to work as a manager as long as you are comfortable with constantly being held accountable for and holding others accountable for high standards and constant results. Solid pay as long as you are skilled and work hard enough to earn bonusus in comparison to other retail management jobs. Great organisation, although they admittedly seldom terminate any employees without it being a termination "with cause", so it is not a job for those who are unsure about their abilities to be successful in sales-quota based retail management position. They also expect you to be extremely well-balanced and diverse, and require you to built a team of people who are also well-rounded (but particularily sales-oriented or money driven people). If you have a weak stomach for driving people to be successful and parting ways with them if they are unable to meet the company's standards, then this is also not the job for you. It is a great job for people who are driven and are willing to work hard to make money and be successful.
Points positifs
Pretty solid pay when bonuses factor in, solid benefits, large opportunity to move or grow your career in retail
Points négatifs
Extremely high standards, high (but decreasing) turnover rate

Decent but management is a joke
Sales Associate/Acting Manager (Ancien employé) –  Bathurst, NB15 juillet 2019
Where I worked we had no manager for 3/4 of my time there. Management issues fell on the shoulders of senior most associate with no pay raise or benefits to speak of. Our advancement or firing was judged on a scale of how you much you sold versus your target. They didn’t take into consideration if we had slow days only slow numbers. The only saving grace were my coworkers but they quit because of the downfalls. Nothing at this job was guaranteed and if you needed help better call someone and hope they answer.

Badly chosen management/ horrible quota
SALES ASSOCIATE (Employé actuel) –  Kingsville, ON8 juillet 2019
Overall i disliked my experience there, your schedule is over 3 weeks+ in advance and you have sales quotas that are very unreasonable to some extents, I found that they promoted salesmen over leaders, Just because you are good at selling doesn't mean you should run or manage a store.
Points positifs
Laidback environment on some occasions
Points négatifs
Unpredictable hours

Not exactly my dream place to work
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Toronto Zoo, ON27 juin 2019
I came in at a low rank so it was difficult to tell and i didnt get to probation. Too much focus on sell sell it was affecting my morale. Too much competition amongst staff it was becoming unhealthy! Colleagues practically fighting over customers for target and commison sake...

I couldn't thrive in such an almost toxic environment...
