Bentely Leathers Inc.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), SaskatoonJune 10, 2015
A typical day at work is selling to customers and building relationships with them. From my time at Bentley I have learned how to train people, prepare budget sheets, scheduling, payroll, and a variety of different small tasks. Working at Bentley, I have grown my work relationships with my manager and co-worker, and they are now some very good friends. The hardest part of the job for me is not being able to help everyone out, regardless if it is an employee or a customer, I will do anything before I tell them that I cannot help them. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know new people from my co-workers to customers. I have gained a huge amount of new friendships.

Full Time Store Manager and Sales Associate (Former Employee), St. Albert, ABJune 9, 2015
This job did not require you to have a lot of formal training. It was really straight forward. Once you start selling, you get used to all the products.

Key Holder/Sales Associate (Current Employee), Brantford, ONMay 4, 2015
Pros: Absolutely stress free and fun
Cons: Being indoors
I work closely with the Manager and Assistant Manager as 3rd in command. I am in charge of completing the store visuals sent from Head Office, but mainly focusing on customer service and relationships making sure they leave the store with everything they came in for and leaving them satisfied and happy, willing to return. I enjoy going to work everyday to a stress free, encouraging environment that has taught me a lot to share.

Ok place to work part time, not full time
Manager (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBApril 4, 2014
Pros: merchandising, stock, customers
Cons: working every saturday, low pay, benefits were not great, working alone for 4-5 hours, lack of district manager, lack of store hours, lack of training
Typical day was spent mostly alone, at least 4 hours, in that time frame, the store would get busy around lunch, and with that came stock which had to be done and then put out..then the other person would come in and then I would go on break. When I would come back from break, the other associate would then go on break. When that associate came back it was usually time to go home. The co-workers were awesome to work with.

Store Manager - Haney Place Mall (Current Employee), Maple Ridge, B.C.October 11, 2013
Pros: room to advance if your willing to work hard
Cons: i like too much of their merchandise and wish i could buy more purses...lol
There is no "typical" day at Bentley. Each day brings it's own unique challenges-such as visual changes,new sales promos,deadlines and trying to help a customer track down the perfect suitcase-and having to search every store in B.C! I have learned how to think on my feet,assess a situation and make a decision with confidence.I have also learned the value of listening-to my staff as well as to customers. I feel I learn interesting things from many sources.My co-workers are a vital part of my daily schedule,I am fortunate in that I have a good support from all levels.The hardest part of my job would be finding new,interesting ways to keep the staff motivated during peak seasons. I find keeping focus,having an action plan as well as keeping your sense of humor are key.The most enjoyable part of my job is that even though the basics stay the same day-to-day, there is enough variety and challenge to stimulate and encourage me to go "above and beyond" my goals.

Fast workplace environment
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Windsor, ONJuly 9, 2013
Pros: long lunch breaks on anything over 5 & half hours
Cons: working by myself, short shifts, not enough shifts
A typical day at work would include, greeting customers, assisting in any way, helping make decisions for customers about products, recieving stock, putting away stock, markdowns, cashing out customers using POS system.
I've learned a lot about customer service through Bentley & what a difference it makes on people. Having re-peat customers come back just because they thoroughly enjoyed the shopping experience with me or another co-worker.
Management is good.
Co-Workers are great.
The hardest part of the job would be working by myself all the time, I dont feel that there are enough staff scheduled all the time.
The most enjoyable part about my job is my co-workers.

Bentley's is a great place for individuals looking for a first time job. The airport locations have impeccable ease and comfort in the workplace. You learn a lot of customer service skills and a lot of basic skills necessary for the working world.
