Sales Lead (Current Employee) – Cambridge, ON, Guelph, ON, Brantford, ON. – 14 November 2016
A typical day consists of helping customers, putting away stock, and cleaning the store. This job taught me the people skills I need to carry myself confidently in the work place, and in social situations. Management can vary frequently, and each location operates differently. Like management, employees in many retail jobs tend to turn over frequently. The hardest part of the job can sometimes be fitting in all of the things that need to get done behind the scenes during busy times. The most enjoyable part for me, aside from meeting new people every shift, has been the visual and creative aspect of the job.
Room for creativity and growths within the company.
Low pay, and not a lot of hours during slow times.
interesting and new experiences i'll never forget.

i loved working at Aldo. it taught me how to be fast paced and how to put cute outfits together. i enjoyed working at Aldo because of all the different personalities that were put in one room and all of the cool styles everyone had. we could all be wearing the same shoe but it would look totally different because of how everyone put it together. not being able to personally dress the customers would of probably been the hardest part of working there.

Working for aldo is a great job to start your skills and knowledge. Majority of the girls I worked with were younger, the hardest part of my job was being to balance the required late hours and my family life. I learned how to be adaptable and a lot about inventory and shipping products to and from stores.

they people i worked with there was really funny and nice, but has to be worked under pressure, cuz its a fast paced environment. but it would've been great if they cut me some slack on the work hours as a part-time worker. but anything else than that, working at Aldo was fun! :)
only gave me 15 mins to eat my lunch & only 2 breaks allowed

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 27 July 2016
Working at ALDO helped me gain a lot of customer service experience. I would be seeing and helping customers on a day to day basis and loved sending customers home with a smile on their face. I got along with all co workers and loved working as a part of a team there but also enjoyed how I had the option to work independently and get tasks done on my own.
A fun environment, but workers are underpaid and undervalued
Technical Support and Customer Service Consultant (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 19 June 2016
Like many companies, money is the bottom line. The priority was always to cut costs. Unfortunately, the first place upper management looked to accomplish this was with its employees. In my 17 months there, I witnessed countless layoffs and position cuts. I saw fellow workers get demoted and take pay cuts, and 3 months after my (voluntary) departure, over 75% of my department's middle management was laid off. Fun group of people to work with though and the offices are nice and include good amenities.
