A productive workplace with high salary and genuine employee team.
Sales Associate and Customer Service (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 24 May 2017
The team is amazing and will teach you a lot, great friendships and bonds will be made. Some of the managers are extremely intelligent and efficient in handling situations, others not so much. Overall you defiantly make a lot of money if you are good with people and can sell a lot.
Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) – Greater Toronto Area, ON – 16 August 2017
as a customer the store is amazing which i why i wanted to work there. After 2 years of working there I realized how all the rules that are put into place to insure you do not receive any incentives or bonuses. As long as the manager Soo is there, you should NOT apply. Management never stays so once there is new management, hopefully the store is better. The team is also very close knit which is great if you are apart of the family but otherwise it has led a lot of people to quit.
dont follow laws ex. no 15 minute breaks for employees
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 June 2017
a typical day at work was to sell the products hit a target amount. i learned how to sell more to a customer how to make them want to purchase more. the hardest part about the job is the customers who came in with there mind set just on one item and a low priced budget so trying to get them to get more was a lot more difficult.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 1 June 2017
Management had manny issues, over all I appreciated working with clients and grateful for the skills learned. It expanded my skills in working under pressure and working with different personality types.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 14 May 2017
A typical day at work consisted of assisting customers and providing your opinion on jewelry. I learned how to manage under pressure during Christmas sales and deal with debit, credit and cash transactions. Overall, I enjoyed my time working as a sales associate with friendly staff and clean working conditions. The hardest part of the job was adjusting to the busy schedule during holidays. The most enjoyable part of the job would be being exposed to beautiful jewelry on which you get some employee discount.
Fun part-time job but rare opportunity for growth.
Sales Associate/Cashier (Current Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 7 May 2017
Just like any other retail job, it has its pros and cons. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with others and meeting new people on a daily basis. The hardest part of the job is accepting the fact that is no rarely any opportunity for growth and advancement. Also, the leadership of the management team isn't always the most supportive/ professionalism. Could significantly improve.
Interacting with new individuals
Long hours and not enough respect for employees from management
Seasonal Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 4 May 2017
The management always supports their staff and handles any issues perfectly. The work is fun because of the people working with you. They scheduled you based on your availability and never make you work long consecutive shifts.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 April 2017
At work, we basically introduce our products to customers in the store. We provide excellent customer services and always find a solution when we have problems. I would say the customer service in my store is the best comparing to other locations in Edmonton. Because we have nice, friendly and kind workers here; that's why we are always happy to help customers due to good mood.
Terrible place to work upper management is incompetent
Manager (Former Employee) – Ontario Bay, MB – 19 March 2017
Nice place to work, upper management/corporate, terrible. Wonderful co workers. Canadian Pandora corp is terrible district manager is incompetent. Expected us at store level to make up for their errors.
Key Holder (Current Employee) – Thornhill, ON – 14 March 2017
I work here as a key holder, and have one of the best staff I've ever experienced. My store manager is also one of the best. We have our regular customers that we love seeing on a daily basis. Our owner is the only part of the job that I do not like.
Great product and customers but poor scheduling and opportunity
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 March 2017
The product and job are great especially if you are passionate about the jewelry however scheduling and opportunity are poor. There is an expectation that you're available a certain amount of hours but never promised that you will recieve any of them. Requires a lot of product knowledge and memorization.
discount, first to know about new product and deals
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 8 March 2017
Very friendly staff when working there, would work days, evening, and weekends depending on scheduled shifts. I had the opportunity to learn a lot about jewelry and placing orders for the company for products needed. Management was never consistent, and the owner was never around to help with situations when they should have. Was hard to determine what to do depending on who you were working with as again all management expected totally different things and such to be done in different ways. I enjoy seeing how happy people are leaving the store, and hearing new stories as to why they wanted certain things. This was a very fun environment to work in, just needed a better management expectations. I had the opportunity to learn how to place orders and keep stock up to date to do so.
Learned many new sales and business skills, great people
Management was very much so on different books of expectations
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 28 February 2017
A typical day at work consists of, getting checked in upon clocking in, this allows us to know our goals for the day and what we need to make as a store and our over all stats, as well as were we are personally sitting at as an individual.
Once we have been informed of our goals, we are then sent to the floor and greet customers upon entering. We ask them all non business questions, and then lead in with "what i can help with" or who they are shopping for.
If it is a quieter day, we go through the charm trays and make sure that they are presentable for when clients come in to look at the product. This would consist of lint rolling pillows, making sure everything is in the proper place. Ensuring that work station is organized and it is free of clutter.
Once all tasks have been completed, we would fill any other stock which includes charm and bracelet boxes and bags.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 February 2017
Pandora is a fun place to work especially since my coworkers became friends. However, hours are very limited and scheduling is ridiculous. Not only that, you always have to double check your pay stubs because sometimes you're not getting paid enough or your commission isn't right. You learnt how to up sell items. The hardest part of the job is memorizing all the names for the charms and the prices.
