Discouraging, overly-competitive environment with extremely poor management
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC1 March 2017
Aritzia is a workplace very centred around individual performance, with extremely high expectations. Unhappy clients complaining about rude, transactional customer service far outnumber those who are truly pleased with the store's atmosphere.
Pros
decent pay
Cons
not enough hours, zero encouragement for new hires, no cooperation between coworkers, horrible management, no regard for work-life balance

If you want to be in sales this is where you start
Part-time Stock Clerk (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC26 February 2017
Of all the summer jobs I'd say this is the worst because it is at night when the buses stop running and as a 16 year old having your parents come get you at 3 in the morning does not make for a good job. Plus they pay minimum wage and you don't get that many shifts but it's the only way to get a day time sales position there.

new employees training is very helpful
Style Advisor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 February 2017
Working at Aritzia let me had a big improvement in fashion retail filed. we had training 1 to 2 times per week, that managers will teach us how to sale professionally, and how to catch customers. The manager team always tell us should be knowledgable, and we had few test to do, in order to know well about our products. I think that is one of the skills that I need to get as a sales person.

Its a cool place to work--but demanding
Merchandiser Support (Current Employee) –  Richmond, BC13 December 2016
Running clothes from fitting rooms back on the floor, helping in the back stock fold merchandise. Co-workers are fun and great to get along with, management is alright, first starting out is a bit confusing. I had no training prior to my first shift. Hardest part was getting the hang of everything despite the fact I had no training whatsoever. Most enjoyable is the busy environment around clothes you love and funny coworkers.
Pros
Fun environment
Cons
No proper training.

Ask you to provide your work plan and then do it themselves
TBA (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC28 November 2016
Scam. You're asked to provide a work plan detailing how you would perform your job.. then they go do your recommendations themselves.

Seem too cheap to hire a consultant to help them figure out what they need to do.
Pros
Can't think of any
Cons
Cheap. Can't hire a consultant.

Cutthroat environment but great financial advances
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON19 October 2016
Environment set on company culture. Branding very key in attracting the best talent to the business. Management needs more emphasis on leading vs. Instilling empty values.

Interesting people
Stock Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON19 September 2016
This was a season job for boxing day. I don't know if I know enough about the company to say more. As expected of a season position it had long hours in the dead of the night but everyone who was there made it fairly enjoyable. I can't say this is the same of every location but it was a pleasure meeting everyone.the work was straight forward.
Pros
pizza breaks

Fun and fast paced environment that offers a lot of opportunities
Style Specialist (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC27 July 2016
At Aritzia, I learned to work in a very fast paced environment by juggling cleaning and assisting 3-5 customers at once. My coworkers were all very supportive and wanted me to succeed in the company. The hardest part of the job is that it can be very demanding when it comes to busy seasons. But it does pay well and offer their employees amazing benefits and opportunities for growth within the company.
