The product manager position is amongst the most interesting jobs you can have in a store. I get the chance to use my experience and creativity to solve problems and make the store an attractive and enjoyable environment. Plus the 8 to 5, Monday to Friday schedule is a bliss to keep a social life, and I even have time to take University classes! The manager is also a big plus for this job, she is dedicated and gives a great example to the other employees. On the other hand, the salary is quite miserable comparing to similar positions in other retail stores, and the job can be stressful since you are constantly juged according to company standards.
Good work schedules, awesome manager, stimulates creativity
Brand Stylist, Part time Key Holder (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 6 May 2017
Very positive and an encouraging environment, able to learn how to properly follow through transactions, leaned about newest fashion trends. An amazing management with flexible schedules and great company to grow. Able to personally enjoy latest fashion trends first hand.
It was a nice place to work and it was a great way to learn about customer service for beginners!
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 April 2017
I liked the welcoming environment of the store, and enjoyed my time of being there. For someone with no previous job experience, it was easy to learn about the retail industry and would recommend working there for anyone who wants to gain experience!

I have learned how work efficiently, and under pressure. I have learned how to work independently, as well as take leadership in tasks. I have learned to do online orders. Send professional emails. I have learned how to receive and ship stock.
I enjoy that the environment is safe, the people are nice within this company and my management is very understanding. They work well as a team, and assist me when it is needed. I enjoy the culture of the company and all it offers.
Key Holder, Shoe Specialist, (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 February 2017
- hard work and no positive feed back - nothing, because management is not qualified to train and does not train - Management was nice in the beginning but turned blind eyes to harassment - they are rude, Clique - Not positive feedback, no pay off, worked like slaves and so much turn over just about there bottom line and no concern for well being of workers in any regard.
Brand Stylist (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 31 January 2017
When I worked there, it had awful management. They were consistently down our necks. Even as a top seller, they treated their employees awfully. Everyone I worked with quit because of how bad it got. Had an awful commission as well.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Pacific Centre, Vancouver – 11 July 2016
greeting customers, helping them select items they are interested in, answering questions about the garments, collections, fabrics, etc. That men & women shop for different reasons, (typically) men when they need something, women for all sorts of reasons> co-workers were kind, however, due to it being a commission-based sales environment, it got a bit competitive.. I t was difficult to predict how many people would come through the door that were going to buy something, and if they would keep it or not> it was enjoyable when a new collection would come in, when we had sales, so more customers would come in
Brand Specialist (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 15 June 2016
Honestly, stay away. The management is horrible at this business. Hated every minute of working there. Other employees there steal your commission sales every chance they get. The discount is okay because you get fifty percent off the clothing, but some of the clothing is awful; falls apart after one wash cycle.
Sales Associate/ Shoe Specialist (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 May 2016
Working at Le Chateau helped my customer service skills a lot. I started as a cashier/ sales associate and worked my way up to a shoe specialist. I really enjoyed being in charge of my own area, making sure all the right merchandise is displayed and customers are more then satisfied with their purchase.
