Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 3 October 2017
Management team is exceptional and extremely hardworking. The work is quite demanding but stimulating and exciting. The company is not very generous in compensation. There is definitely the opportunity for advancement as I, myself, have been promoted to Assistant Manager within 15 months of being with the company.
Merchandising Coordinator (Current Employee) – BC – 13 September 2017
initially you might enjoy your work but after a few months it becomes very redundant and monotonous. the management is always keeping an eye on you. doing something right is not appreciated but when you make a mistake its never forgotten. HIghly stressful environment.
managmanet of midle age to older women in womens clothing
Customer Service Manager (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 16 July 2017
It was a pleasure to manage and work with older women to whom I could call my grandma.
They where all lovely hard working women that had been working at Laura's for many years some over 10 years.
The pay was just average for the sales staff, they are very thrifty with pay and raises. Women working there for over 10 years only got like 10 cent raises and would complain to me all the time about other women stealing sales, all their woes and problems but they where generally nice older women.
There was never any room to really grow even though as appart of management you where always being trained to do managers job and did it on a regular basis.
Not my cup of tea for a forever job, but if you are just a happy go lucky gal that likes to get out interact with the public and loves fashion this is a good part time job for you.
note: there is alot of heavy lifting and cleaning especially during busy seasons and holidays.

Journalière (Former Employee) – Laval, QC – 7 February 2017
-J'ai reçu une augmentation pendant toutes les années que j'ai travaillé avec eux. Une compagnie qui a vécu des difficultés financières Suite a mon congé de maternité, ils ont mis fin a mon emploi suite aux difficultés financières. -Une journée de travail était de scanner les vêtements et les mettre dans les boites de magasins pour livraison ensuite. -J'ai appris a me servir d'un scan -L'aspect le plus difficile est qu'on était toujours penché -Le plus agréable est qu'on pouvait aussi travailler en équipe et s'entraider pour que le travail avance plus vite
pauses plus courtes- vendredis finir 1 heure plus tot
Manager Trainee (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 February 2017
I loved working at Laura, I started processing shipments in the back room and worked my way up to Manager Trainee. The benefits were okay. I loved working with all of the staff and helping customers find what they were looking for. Great place to work.
Loved the challenges and reaching goals.
Sometimes the hours were long if nobody showed up for their shift.
E-Commerce (Former Employee) – Laval, QC – 19 September 2016
A typical day very quite, too many thing I learned like increase my knowledge in electronic business, picking data entry and help my co-workers, I never had the difficult day. The most enjoyable part of the job is the collaboration of the co-workers, and an amazing manager at that time, Francis Hannus.
Wonderful learning experience with the ability to learn and grow as a result of good management team and fellow employees.
Style Coordinator/ Cashier (Current Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 26 July 2016
My typical day at work would be going in and working at cash throughout the day while managing to keep up with finding and shipping customer orders to other store locations or customers homes. At times, 5 or more orders come in at around the same time and they must be answered within the first hour otherwise, they are timed out, therefore resulting in a loss for our store. That does put pressure on me, however, it benefits me because it allows me to understand how to manage my time in order to find the items, answer the order, create a shipment through Purolator, and finally, package them. I also work on opening new stock that arrives, whether it be accessories or clothing. I have to remove them from their original packaging, price-check them, hang them on specific hangers, steam them and, in some cases, put them on the floor. All the while I have to manage to work on cash alone. I also regularly check emails and clean up the accessories area to keep it looking perfect. This typical job day for me has taught me to be very patient, kind, and understanding in order for customers to leave the store with a flawless impression of the Laura Canada store brand.
