Beauty Adviser/ Counter Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 November 2017
If you have seen the movie Mean Girls, then you know exactly what it would be like to work at this place. If you haven't seen the movie then go watch it please because it would truly save me from writing a lengthy review.
VM Coordinator (Former Employee) – Renfrew, ON – 27 September 2017
Holt Renfrew is a great company to work for, but was lacking in career opportunities for internal employees at the time. Overall work life balance could have been stronger and there was too much division within the head office in between various departments.
Buyer (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 September 2017
Overall poor corporate culture with no work life balance. High turnover in every dept. Majority of existing management share same dictatorship style of running teams. Salary and benefits are top heavy with executives/management reaping better rewards than average employees. Favouritism and unequal treatment are common practice with too much emphasis on physical appearances to fit in within the company culture.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Yorkdale, ON – 1 August 2017
Environment and management are probably worst aspects of this company. Employee turnover rate is 50% at all levels including sales to corporate. Really unpleasant overall but rewarding if you are independent and prefer retail

Designer Specialist (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 10 June 2017
I liked working there for the product and selling environment was very conducive to creating and working your own clientele. the perks of working there included, trips to Italy, discounts, special in-store events and the team itself, mostly great people doing amazing jobs.
meeting interesting people / great product / fun events
Management style was a little demeaning and condescending at times.
Personal Shopping Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 March 2017
With the nature of the business, everyday would be busy, making the day go by quickly. However, the company lack a strong, efficient management team. Employees did not feel supported by the leadership team, therefore people would feel either depreciated or misguided on how to perform well.
