Overall a good place to work, but bad personal experience
Keyholder (Former Employee), CanadaAugust 12, 2015
Pros: Good pay, fun work environment
Cons: Bad management, company does not show much care for employees, unfair treatment
I moved up fast here. Started as a sales associate and quickly became keyholder. My first few months working here were amazing. My co-workers were great. The job in general is fun and productive yet challenging. You will be pushed to make sales and there is competition between co-workers to make the most sales. The pay was good. I got paid a very decent wage plus you can make commission based on your sales.

One of the negatives though is hours are not guaranteed. Even as keyholder I was still part time. They will cut your hours based on how busy the store is and how much is selling. Be prepared – more... to get sent home early from a shift because sales are not high that day. Half way through my work experience here we got a new store manager and she was absolutely terrible. She hired friends of hers and would play favourites with them. Giving them more hours, higher pay, better job duties etc. She threatened to demote me without a legitimate reason. I suspected it was so she could promote one of her "favourites". Which is exactly what happened as soon as I quit. Within a few months of having the new manager everyone I worked with originally had quit. The district manager was useless. She let all of this slip past her. She didn't have a clue what was going on internally in her stores, and let the managers get away with whatever they wanted. They could treat you unfairly and get away with it.

The company overall is decent but does not show much appreciation or care for their employees. – less

Working within a faced paced environment with effective customer service skills
Part Time Key Holder (Current Employee), Markham, ONJuly 26, 2015
A typical day at work would consist of being able to completing tasks while providing excellent customer service. I have learned to work within a fast paced environment, complete multiple tasks within a short period of time, complete visuals around the store, complete opening and closing procedures and working within an effective team.

Bitter sweet
Sales Associate/ Cashier (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 8, 2015
It was an overall nice place to work. I get let go due to the store being overstaffed. Which, I suppose is understandable but the managment was very cold about the firing process. Didn't give much info when I asked questions.

Manager (Former Employee), Victoria, BCMay 20, 2015
Pros: discount
Cons: no stock room
A day a La vie en Rose would be enjoyable and busy , Ive learned
that each day will hold somthing different.Staff were young ladies that enjoyed thier work. The company does push hard for sales and managers need to make goals . There can be a lot of pressue from a RSM.

Terrible company
Keyholder (Former Employee), QuébecMay 10, 2015
Pros: Being friends with collegues
Cons: Horrible management
Only reason I kept this job for so long is because it was fun because we were all friends and we never really worked because we had a terrible manager and supervisor. They were friends and would go shopping during their shifts. Manager would take 10 cigarette breaks a day. You're paid minimum wage except if you get a higher position. Company tries to rip you off any way they can (ex: not giving you the bonuses they promised). Terrible company overall.

Alright job, bad management
Sales Associate/ Temporary Key Holder (Former Employee), Prince George, BCMay 4, 2015
I learned how to make women feel good about themselves and learned how to properly fit women for bras. I like learning about the different styles and alternative options. My co-workers were amazing however my manager and regional manager were sub-par. I was overworked, and only received a 20 cent raise after working there for a year. the most enjoyable part of the job was great coworkers and helping customers feel beautiful and important.

Ok place to work
Key Holder/Cashier (Former Employee), Oshawa, ONApril 6, 2015
Pros: Great environment to work in
Cons: Not a good fit for the job
Providing excellent customer service skills, putting merchandise onto floor, creating displays, house keeping, answering phone calls. I learned about the different styles of bras and panties, how to measure for a perfect bra fit. Management was friendly and easy to get along with as well as the rest of the girls. All were friendly and outgoing, The hardest part of the job was selling, I realized pretty fast that I am not a seller, some people are and some are not, I am not. The most enjoyable part of the jobs was making the customers happy and feel satisfied with their purchases and customer service experience.

Customer Service oriented
Customer Service/Head Cashier/Merchandiser (Former Employee), Vaughn, ONMarch 12, 2015
Pros: growth within the company
Cons: no benefits
La Vie En Rose cultivated my customer service skills, since the merchandise is a personal item for our clientele. Communicating and listening to the customers needs is the most important part of this job. Product knowledge is what set this brand apart, the training was detailed and ongoing for all staff. Being part of the training process for new employees was enjoyable, due to the success of the brand and sales team. Merchandising the product gave me great pride in the work space because i had creative control of the layout of the product and upkeep of the store.

Sales associate (Former Employee), Grande Prairie, ABFebruary 18, 2015
Pros: fun job
Cons: bad management, not a good salary, lots of drama
Manager was too immature, the salary wasn't too great, although most co-workers were friendly. I didn't see myself going anywhere in the company, there were no advancements whatsoever.

Productive and interesting workplace with clothing
Part Time Sales (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: meeting new people everyday
La Vie en Rose is a very fast paced environment surrounded by amazing costumers and an amazing staff whom concentrated solely on the interest of costumers along with their needs.

A typical day at work consists of cleaning and maintaining the store to look its absolute best and professional.

Since my job title as a key holder consists of doing returns, exchanged (being in charge of the income coming in and out of the store). I am also responsible for countless amount of paperwork.

The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to have costumers walk into my store with a complication, and myself being able to allow them to walk out with a smile on their face and maintain satisfaction in relation to their body image.

Pushed to work to the bone with no incentives
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 11, 2014
Management does not know how to keep employees happy at La Vie en Rose. Employees, almost always kept on a part time basis are given sporadic shifts, pushed to sell as much as humanly possible. The commission cap is set at $120 per hour, making it nearly impossible to make anything above minimum wage. I worked there for nearly two years, consistently sold well, and was being trained to be a Key Holder. Even after working there for two years as a sales associate, they offered me a 25 cent raise for the promotion.

Key Holder (Former Employee), Toronto, ONOctober 15, 2014
Pros: good experience
Cons: not enough hours
Daily face to face customer service. This position teaches you how to multitask as well as how to work under pressure. Hardest part of the job is trying ti satisfy every customer, especially dissatisfied customers. Most enjoyable part is working with a diverse team and meeting new people every day.
