Terrible experience
Store Manager (Employé actuel) –  Toronto, ON30 septembre 2019
If you don't drink the kool-aid or suck up to the RM you're in trouble. No team work between store. Very drama filled and catty environment. Regionals are useless and not supportive.

Quality of product has gotten very bad

Way more physical than you would expect. You're moving heavy furniture on a regular basis. Hang wall art and lighting regularly. You're up ladders as high as 10ft on a regular basis. No training on how to do any of it properly or safely. Still not sure how to climb a 10ft ladder to attach a light to an electrical grid safetly.

Overall great working environment
Sales Consultant (Employé actuel) –  Richmond Hill, ON24 septembre 2019
Great atmosphere and people to work with.
Easy to build clientele if you have a passion or flair for home decor and design.
Weeknight retail hours and open sundays is the only negative thing I could add.

Not a good place to work
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Vancouver, BC22 septembre 2019
Just a heads up the RM for BC is not a good fit if you want support and encouragement. This person is very cliquey and throws you under the bus. It’s really to bad cause Urban Barn sells nice stuff. It’s to bad the RM isn’t.

a great place to be
Custom Order Coordinator (Employé actuel) –  Burnaby, BC19 septembre 2019
The best part of working at Home Office is the people I spend my days with! We're working on some great initiatives to ensure our team members know they are appreciated and that we care about them.

Horrible Regional Management
Associate (Ancien employé) –  Barrie, ON17 septembre 2019
This company expects miracles from their employees even with the economical state that we are currently in. They set you up for failure on a weekly basis with metric goals that are so far fetched. The lie to the customers as much as they can whenever there is a product issue. Regional Manager in Ontario is clueless and unaware of the business. If you want to get verbally abused at a workplace, please apply.

Not a good company
Logistics Administrator (Ancien employé) –  Mississauga, ON7 septembre 2019
Since management has changed this place went downhill. New management does not care about your needs or concerns, you are just brushed off to the side like trash. This is a gossip and drama environment that is very toxic to your mental health. There is a mean girl group that are on a witch hunt. Work is not evenly distributed at all, however everyone gets paid the same.. which does not make any sense. Some employees are sleeping/lounging/on their phones or watching shows; while others are working non-stop to complete tasks. Employees who really care about the company and put the most effort are walked on /used like a tissue. Pay raise is minimal and doesn’t depend on how hard you work – everyone is given the same %. They make you do the work load of 3 people, but the pay does not match up. You are never praised for your hard work and dedication. New management does not care about your opinion; they only think they are right. I highly suggest that anyone even thinking about applying here does themselves a favour, and look elsewhere. Don’t even get me started about head office, they themselves are a joke, thank you next. There are many companies out there that care about their employees and appreciate them. STAY AWAY YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

It was a great experience!
Shift Lead (Ancien employé) –  Winnipeg, MB28 août 2019
It was fun at the first few months because I love sales and talking to people. But the management is so poor. My previous manager was okay but when they changed it, there's so many miscommunication happened. The pay was decent but you have to work hard to reach your target sales which is hard if you are in a not so good location.

It was a very personal adventure
STORE MANAGER (Ancien employé) –  Kingston, ON15 août 2019
Making sure all client orders were completed and input properly into SAP program. Store maintained, with policies and standards at their best.
Training and coaching ongoing for all associates.
It was a small company so you were about to connect to departments very easily and get your questions answered quickly.
Managers helped each other become better managers.

Worst Place To Work, No Future, Worst Wage Increase
Warehouse Associate (Ancien employé) –  Delta, BC24 juillet 2019
This company is the worst to work for! They hire incompetent people for higher positions. Rather than promote someone within the company they rather bring in someone new who doesnt know anything. They expect the people that where running things before to train that person who is suppose to be incharge of them. The wage increase is horrible .30 cents for a year of hard work every day no thank you. If I knew I was only gonna get .30 cent I would have ran away the first day. No future here no one notices if you work hard everyday or slack off all day you still get the same as everyone else. The only reason this place even runs is because of a couple people that actually work to get the job done. Why even bother to work if you get no incentive to move up this place is a joke..... good for a part time job or student

NO FUTURE HERE
Points positifs
regular workers are cool makes work bearable
Points négatifs
No Future, Low Wage Increase, Incompetent people incharge

Could be fun but instead hard work is criticized instead of rewarded because youre not focused on selling
Sales associate (Employé actuel) –  Ontario21 juin 2019
When you work hard to do extra work, you aren't rewarded. Anything else you do is criticized by unqualified leaders. Company raises prices and tries to convince the public and employees that they are justified by tariffs. Was so much easier to work here with the old management.
Points positifs
Occasional free coffees and sofas to sit on
Points négatifs
Pretty much everything else

Horrible place to work
Sales Associate (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB4 juin 2019
You only get paid minimum wage as a part time associate and if you are a shift lead you only get 75 cents more than minimum wage. They dont offer raises ever.
They expect you to work very hard for little money and try to sell people furniture and meet goals even when they know it's pretty much impossible.
They don't care about their employees and when you leave they could care less because they have such high turnover that it doesn't matter to them.
Points positifs
Nothing
Points négatifs
Literally everything

Drank the koolaid for a long time but there’s daily bullying and RM doesn’t support mgt managers must have more then thick skin
Store Manager (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB24 mai 2019
Rm sells you the dream then forgets you after her back is covered mgrs in two stores in city commit time fraud on a daily basis.
But if your the RM”s favourite your good crazy workload.
Expected to paint and patch holes in store almost daily , hanging art on high walls including heavy mirrors dangerous move furniture 4times a year .
Extensive lifting and bending inventories 2 times a year after over a couple years I was done the bullying that the RM and HR let continue daily makes this an extremely toxic environment.
They will not hire anyone who does dress and look the part only materialistic fashionista candidates need apply .
The RM made some mgrs go for a make up course hair cut and bought a blazer because this lady didn’t fit their image.
Points positifs
40% off original price and benefits
Points négatifs
Regional Manager, HR, turn over if 100 people last two years

Good company
Manager (Employé actuel) –  ON13 janvier 2019
The company is good to work for. Sometimes a little backwards or slow on techology - seems to be hesitant in adapting. Product selection and employee discount is good.

Urban Barn doesn't care about employees
Sales Consultant (Employé actuel) –  West Vancouver, BC25 octobre 2018
If you are good and want to stay they would be happy, but they won't do anything to keep you happy, they believe it is their job to provide an environment for their employee to experience retail and then go work for other companies.
