Clothing Sales Associate (Current Employee) – St. John's, NL – 19 June 2017
When I first started working at Cleo it was an adventure, new things to learn, new people to help, most of all new surroundings, but now after working there almost a year I find it is hard to receive hours, and learn new things. The world of fashion is always changing but at Cleo no one is teaching the "New". A typical day at work for me is probably a slow/busy day. I help customers make there decisions, check them out and do a scattered return. There isn't really a hard part to my job. The most enjoyable part of my job is having a satisfied customer.
Started as a shift manager, the boss was to busy doing her job! And had no time to train , over all it's not a great place to work the other staff members where not very friendly and didn't even talk to me.
No pros, didn't even have a place to sit for lunch

Worst company i have ever worked for i was a store manager their for seven months when i started i was only given two days of training and thrown of the floor most of those months i had no ASM because know one wants to work for Cleo i put up job posting on ever page but no one wants to apply the DM was nasty and rude. Most days i had to work a 12hr or more and didn't get paid because i was salary. the company does not care about their employees Do not work for Cleo!!!!!
Clothes are garbage nothing good about the company

This might have just been my location, but the management was absolutely terrible. We have one employee notorious for stealing customers and forcing new employees to stock in the back or do other work for her while taking all the sales (then management would reprimand us for not meeting our sales goals); and management refused to fire this employee despite most others complaining about her AND the fact that she is now 70 years old. Likewise if they have a problem with you, they don't talk to you about it, they just cut your hours. Some girls will go 4-5 weeks without a shift just because they were late or did something wrong. Management is rude and unapproachable, employee turnover rate is disgustingly high, and management gives part timers very few hours (as little as 3 a week!).
Unapprochable management, bad pay, terrible coworkers, don't listen when you complain, forced to work off the clock, ZERO training.

Everyone I worked with was wonderful, very lovely people. The environment was a bit too competitive for me to be working without commission. Personal sales record determined how many shifts you would get. I was not a fan of that. Overall it was an okay experience, but more experience for me, nonetheless. Great clothes and great sales, though. Also, employee discount is awesome.
Shift Manager (Former Employee) – London, ON – 20 March 2016
The staff and managers at this job were all very friendly and approachable, but always put their personal needs first. This job has high sales targets and a competitive sales environment, yet does not offer any sort of commission/bonus, and does not offer a reasonable wage to make up for lack thereof. It is physically demanding with no downtime.
Generous staff discounts
High pressure to make large sales target with no bonus or compensation
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 3 February 2016
Usually stock comes once a week, Helping customers put outfits together. Fun with my co-workers, Fun to be with! My manager is amazing and totally love her! She is so fun! Hardest part of the job I believe is slow months. Not many hours, and very slow in the store.
