Retail Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 January 2018
Every day that I go to work I am able to meet and help new, interesting people. Whether they are in a hurry or browsing for a new retail item, every individual showcases how diverse and exciting the society we live in can be.
Part-time Associate (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 9 November 2017
Excellent co-workers and customers. Product is high-end and semi-affordable, which makes it easy to sell to customers. Hardest part: Difficult customers, product inventory, and merchandising Best Part: Customers are excellent. Co-workers are excellent, hours are great (mall hours 9-9).
Thoroughly enjoyed working with my team and putting a smile on customers faces while selling excellent products.
Employee (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 13 June 2017
I was lucky to get two shifts a week and they would never be longer than 3 hours each; thats what happens when you have as many managers as part time workers. Not only that but the store manager was quite rude.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 13 May 2017
I felt like part of the team from the first day. The managers really invested time into each sales associate to make sure we were comfortable with the job. Whenever we had a floor move to do each season we would make a party out of it.
Co Manager (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 10 April 2017
A typical day at work would start off with me checking emails, looking at the sales of the day before, looking at each guides performance and making out the schedule and each persons goals and responsibilities.
Uphold our standards, restock the sales floor, replenish, receive stock. Most importantly, serve customers.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 5 April 2017
Lots of resources to learn various departments and areas of the store. Great culture and atmosphere. Quality product that makes sales easy. Lots of pressure from upper management, however lots of resources to help if you get stuck. Also benefits are great. However, company does need to make sure that if you are promoted you get placed with a new sales team and needs to ensure that training schedules for new positions are followed through.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 4 April 2017
Strengthing customer service skills by talking to customers, getting to know the customer than selling to their needs. In-store visual merchandising, dressing mannequins, laying out table displays and building window displays. The best part of working at Eddie Bauer is talking to interesting people that are living their adventure going traveling or on an exciting trip somewhere, and outfitting them with the gear the need to have the best experiance.
Pattern Specialist (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – 1 February 2017
This company has been through too many CEO changes. Most CEO's in the apparel industry take jobs in companies, make changes and then take a job somewhere else leaving the employees to clean up the mess. EB is no exception.
Manager (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 19 January 2017
I really enjoyed working for Eddie Bauer. I was able to work with a great team and great atmosphere. Every day was different, it involved selling, training, merchandising. The most enjoyable part of working at EB was the values that the company withheld and the great team i got to work with. I was challenged and fulfilled throughout my employment at EB. I left EB to attend school as a Medical Office Assistant.
Customer service (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 January 2017
Get in to work put on my badge approach the manager who would assign me a the part of the store where I should be working. I learned to interact with the public and not to be afraid to approach people. Management was really good and helpful. My co-workers were fun to work with and had lots of knowledge about products that we were selling. The hardest part of the job, was turning away a customer, because you didn't have what they wanted. Learning about how different clothing kept you warm.
SEASONAL SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 11 January 2017
If you need a job then sure work here. Management was sub par and overstaffed like crazy to "keep up" with the non existent christmas rush. Myself as well as 4 other employees went a week without work on multiple occasions
