Stock Manager (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 23 August 2017
i have worked in this area of work for the past 5 years and when I started @ Aldo Robson it was great and then after being let go for not fitting Aldo after 4 years (yeah that what I got told) and now coming back to Little Burgundy has been good but there are just some people who just don't get it or want to give a care in the world. so pretty much I'm saying i', at that point where I want to be paid a lot more than I'am now and don't want to deal with all these people anymore...

I love working at little burgundy, because i've always had a passion for retail. Everyone i work with is great, and they provide a safe and fun environment to be around and work in. I have learned a lot, and I very much enjoy my part in being a sales associate.
Sales Rep (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 25 January 2017
The best job I have worked at is Little Burgundy. It was mainly about customer service and making sales, which I liked. A day at work would go by very quickly because the time would pass so fast you are always busy doing something; selling, cleaning, organizing and handling shipments. I am a type of person who likes to be busy. This job experience taught me a lot of different ways to sell merchandise, and how to use a sale pitch. The management was amazing and always made sure me and the other co-workers worked as a team, we all had good respect for each other. There wasn't really a hard part of this job, everything was always under control and organized in a systematic way. The most fun part of this job was customers letting you give your opinions on what was most suitable and achieving customer satisfactory with your right judgement.
Un-pack shoes Learned to be organized Management is good hardworking and fun loving people Co-workers are great always a fun time The hardest part is putting away boots The most enjoyable part is the people I worked with and the %50 discount

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – vancouver – 22 May 2014
aldo is without a doubt the worst company i've ever worked for. i worked part time (close to full time hours) and worked hard for full productivity and got no incentives for it and only made minimum wage. the expectations they put on your are solely for appearance.. they dont care about their employees. they tell people to wear more make up on the floor and only hire people based on their style rather than their selling abilities or qualifications. the schedules were never organized, the management team was very unapproachable and the only good thing about this job was the discount.
Key Holder/Sales Leader (Former Employee) – Leader, SK – 8 January 2014
A typical day at Little Burgundy would consist of:
- Sales analyses for previous day - Communicating with Head Office about sales goals as well as any promotions - Coaching all staff on daily sales objectives and personal goals -Coaching staff on selling techniques and informing them on relevant information on new products - Dealing with customer service issues - Adjusting Visual Presentation - Managing 5-10 employees per day without sacrificing my sales associate position
Plenty of oppurtunity for growth within the company
Enjoyable work environment, poor management and staff
Stock Coordinator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 29 October 2013
I was tasked with keeping the backroom organized from shoe type(shoe, sandal, boot) down to shoe size, as well as shipping special orders and recalls, and receiving new product. I did not have to deal with customers, however the staff were very disrespectful or my efforts to keep the room organized and while the manager was extremely nice, she was ineffective in dealing with the staff. The hardest part of the job was cleaning up after the staff, however I was able to wear headphones and listen to music all day.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 5 February 2013
I have really enjoyed my time at Little Burgundy thus far but i believe it is time to explore other retailers to see what exactly I enjoy. I am an assistant Manager so I balanced employees, scheduling, objectives and store visual presentation.
