Shipper and Receiver (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 5 June 2013
The Aritzia brand is one of perfection and cultural beauty. They are keen on providing quality products and services to propel their brand. While doing this they have become a cultural landmark and a beacon of Canadian fashion and lifestyle. Typical days at work include understanding their vision and working hard to ensure the condition of the company is not only healthy but polished.
Stock Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 6 September 2017
Excellent manager. Worked as a seasonal shift merchandise and learned how to managed stocks. Learned about tagged price tag, review stock items, arranged the stocks into an area. Divided few people into a group for each section. There was no hardest part of the job as if there is any questions, free to asked the manager in store. Most enjoying store i worked at.
Great place for Aritzia lifers. Merit-based but also favouritism exists. Leadership is inconsistent; some inspiring some intimidating.
Operations Analyst (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 6 September 2017
Great place to work if you grew up in Aritzia and are a "lifer". It is merit based, so it doesn't matter how old you are as long as you are driven and good at what you do. Although, there is definitely favouritism that exists.
There is an Aritzia way of doing things and if you come in externally, it can be hard to adapt and "fit in". Some leaders and management are amazing and inspiring, and some are intimidating and rude. There are inconsistencies in leadership.
It's a cult-like culture which is amazing for those who fit right into that culture however for those who don't fit into that type, it is not the best place.
Cool building, lunch vendors that come in every day, discount on clothes

Distrubution Centre Trainer (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 20 August 2017
Great place to work if you know someone there to help you get ahead. Or you can go what most girls do and sleep with a supervisor you'll def get ahead that way. But if you went to school for a related field and work hard be prepared to be overlooked for a pretty, young thing.
Good student work if you just want to clock in and out
Merchandise Manager and Floor Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 21 July 2017
Very poor work life balance along with fear based leadership made experience difficult. Work always had to come first, especially in management roles. Training was very good and very positive and taught me a lot of skills
For a first retail job... It was as fun as it could be!
Seasonal Employee (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 28 June 2017
Always a positive environment! Never had any issues with any of the other full time employees or management. Learned some great ways to fold clothes and how to keep the store neat! Loved the fact that no matter the sale, no matter how busy the store was it was never a mess!
Great employees, and management. Decent pay. Great experience for a first retail job.
Seasonal hours are not the greatest, but for a full time student they were kind of great.
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 14 June 2017
The work hours as a supervisor were inconsistent. If it's busy you are expected to stay which makes sense but when it is slow there is no reciprocation as well as the contracted 45 hour work week. Duties are highly distributed out with little cross department learning and brainstorming. They are very committed to promoting from within which is good to build team morale.
This is a company that I would go back to because of the amount of knowledge I acquired from working for the company. I was trained on the job and was always encouraged to ask questions and work with in a team setting.

Fun workplace and brings great personal development
Lead Shipper & Receiver (Former Employee) – Thornhill, ON – 19 May 2017
An environment that will grow you to become the person you are today. The personal development made here, being employed by this company is very difficult to describe with words, it's more of a do it yourself experience, and you will understand how from your first day working with the company, and how different you are after a couple years.
long hours and you rarely finish on the exact finish time that founded on your schedule
