Great work environment
Key Holder (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONSeptember 7, 2014
Pros: communicating with the general public
Cons: short hours
The staff and management were a wonderful team. It was a great work environment making it possible to achieve store and personal goals. Considering the fact that it was such a large store the hardest part of the job would have to be not having enough staff due to the hours that were given weekly.

Productive and I loved my team we had
Assistant Manager/Visual/ Key Holder/Stock Manager (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONApril 2, 2014
Pros: meeting new people everyday
Cons: slow days
A typical day at Costa was always productive, whether we were on the floor to being on the computer there was always something to do. What I learned at Costa was becoming more organized and learning how multitask. My co-workers were amazing, we were all like family inside and outside of work. We knew when it was work and when it was fun. The hardest – more... part of the job would be the organization of the company. The most enjoyable was being with the staff and attending to the customers. – less

My first job was fun and interesting
Model sales associate (Former Employee), Brampton, ONMarch 29, 2014
Cons: never worked much and then the store closed.
A typical day requires a few tasks throughout the day. I learned a lot about working in retail. I had a great manager coaching me all the way through. I had friendly co- workers. Nothing particularly hard about this job. The enjoyable part was getting around getting use to approaching myself and helping customers.

I enjoy working well with others and getting to know their needs. I've been doing retail and building great customer service for over 5 years. My job right now is good but I will like to try something new. I enjoy making outfits for other people depending on the type of events they will be attending.

You put in more than you'll ever get!
Co manager/ assistant manager (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 26, 2013
Pros: 60% off original priced merchandise, frequent contests with give -aways
Cons: outfits have to be current and items are changed almost weekly, hr structure is poor, hardly time or good enough coverage to take a vacation
If you love fashion and dressing up from head to toe you'll fit right into the culture and environment of Costa Blanca, in store management usually consist of 3 people, and then there is the district manager. Customers are usually fun, trendy and very appreciative of your help, but there are a few snobbish ones. The environment can get very dramatic – more... but it's different for every location and can be really fun too. Upper management tends to be very biased and only takes note of and promote staff that they favour, sometimes for no apparent reason. The hardest thing is trying to make quota when there is absolutely no traffic, there are no excuses! I would recommend working here if you're just a part timer or after school worker, the job security is horrible and you're sometimes replaced by just being taken off the schedule with no sort of warning, letter, or professionalism. – less
