Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 October 2017
While at Le chateau I was exposed to many facets of the company such as sales, cash and stock. It was a building place as in after a couple months there were opportunities to grow and get to a next level within the company
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 1 September 2017
and typical day at work: depending on the store location, the product the had, and the time of year it could be very busy to hit your head on the wall slow
what i learned: how to push clothing on people and how to make them buy it
management: i will say the manager that i had at my store was really cool and fun….. but when it came down to head management they could really work on them not being such a control freak and having power go to their heads
hardest part: trying to get sales on the extremely slow days when nobody whats to buy
most enjoyable part: the people i worked with. My boss was really cool and always bought us little treats and my co-workers were just really great
Retail Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 July 2017
my days at le chateau were awesome I learned to become more outgoing in customer service was very helpful in opinions on clothing and helping with sizes. Hardest part of the job would be unsatisfied customers but you have to take the good with the bad! I loved making people feel good about themselves :)
Team Lead Key Holder (Current Employee) – Oakville, ON – 29 June 2017
I maintain an exceedingly functional work environment while delivering exceptional customer service. I have great problem solving skills and work well independently and in teams with little oversight. I respond to the needs and requests of customers in a timely manner and I’m excellent at organizing and prioritizing multiple ongoing projects.
Key Holder (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 28 June 2017
Manager can get stressed out easily. If you like to work in a fast environment this place is for you. You have to move fast and has to be aggressive. To make commission you have to sell at least 2,000 a day.
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!
