At first I really liked working at Roots until I learned more about how the company operated. Unfortunately, the company doesn't care about its employees and even less about the stores located in the west side of Canada. Basically if you're not a store in Toronto, you don't really matter. The head office was never available for help and often seemed very disorganized as they would send emails that didn't make sense or keep changing the sales promotions and dates last minute.
Most of my pay checks ended up going back to Roots since we were expected to wear the current trends. And trust me, I didn't make enough to afford to buy the expensive clothes even with the discount.
Head office management suck, low wages, bad sales
