Retail Sales Associate Reviews

What is it like working as a Retail Sales Associate at Hudson's Bay Company?

Retail Sales Associate in Kelowna:
"Tough to obtain schedule."
Pros: Interacting with customers and associates. My boss is flexible and accommodating; a lot are not.
Cons: The hours are long and standing on your feet for the better part of the day is physically taxing. I also dislike not knowing my schedule from month to month. Only one weekend off a month!
