Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Kanata, ON – 14 August 2016
Management at my particular location was little to none. People did as they pleased, with phones in the front, eating from the chocolate window, and even drinking coffee's or their tea's in front of customers. I worked there for a bit and quickly realized these flaws, and after being bullied into submission, I got fired. Godiva has great quality chocolate, wonderful flavors, and the managers when they're at their specific location are absolutely wonderful. The employees are not the same whatsoever.

A typical day would begin at 9 when I would count the tills and prepare the store for opening at 9:30. Normally it would be quiet in the morning so I would dip strawberries and bananas and display them nicely in the front window. I loved working there. On breaks I got to check out sales in other stores around the mall. I quit in the summer of 2013 solely because I moved to Italy for my LDS mission.
I Really enjoy working in the data Entry, office work as a receptionist or others, that's what I am looking for and will keep looking till I find the field I am interested in, My current work is challenge and fun and I have very good customer service and sales skills also have excellent relations with my manager and co-workers but still not what the kind of job I am looking for
Sales Assistant (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 25 February 2014
Godiva was a great place to learn about new products and a new company. Management was good and informative. The hardest part of the job was helping customers that were looking for products that had been discontinued or not available in this region.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – calgary – 1 August 2013
I love Godiva, the Brand and the experience. It is a very busy environment, therefore time goes by quickly. A typical day is to keep up with standards and deadlines. Coach and train staff to perform in a sales focused environment. Run the store and remain number 1 in the district!
I have hired the team I now have and have built rapport with them all. I think the hardest part of this job is keeping up with all the expectations that are required on a daily basis. Although a challenge is good I would like most to work a fairly normal work week. The most enjoyable is the product, and the people that we get to see each day, our customers.
I realize that a very important aspect is missing and that is Work/Life balance. I would like to refocus on that which has always been important to me.
