Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 April 2016
Great culture, horrible management and advancement opportunities. Pay is dismal for a luxury brand. Benefits are nonexistent for full time employees that are not part of management.
Discount used to make sense, before the prices of all items jumped up about 20%

An overall enjoyable retail work experience
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  York, ON12 April 2016
The general atmosphere of the job is quite enjoyable. The customers, the products and the overall brand aesthetics are relatable and are fun to be around. The hardest part about the job is working with the management team. Though through no fault of the actual company, the management team is often difficult to communicate with, and as a result a lot of inconsistencies arise in pretty much all areas of the business. Generally, it doesn't really feel like a team and can often be a little frustrating.

products are very well presented
Sales associate and assistant visual director (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB4 April 2016
I quite enjoyed working for kate spade NY, but the stress of being the only boy, in a building of all girls can be hard if they don't treat you very well, it will get to you as it did me. I ending up having to of all of the stock and prep work and was on the sales floor very little, so I had a hard time make my sales.
Pros
lovely company
Cons
long weeks

Fast paced environment with a great team
Stock Associate (Current Employee) –  Halton Hills, ON30 September 2013
Working at Kate Spade is an amazing opportunity. I love the companies motto " live colorfully." Which to me embodies a classic fashion with a splash of colour. A typical day at work is unloading and processing shipment. While also doing a daily stock of the store. Being an employee at Kate Spade is amazing because not only do you have fun working but you work with an amazing team of people ranging from managers to associates.
Pros
Amazing team to work with
Cons
No full-time status for associates
