Team Leader (Current Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 10 August 2017
A typical day at work is hectic, challenging and involves an ability to multitask and meet demands as they present themselves. Management is very supportive and willing to help, though the expectation from upper management borders on being unrealistic at times. Working with the public is always challenging but the environment between coworkers is friendly and encouraging for the most part, which helps to off set the unpleasant interactions faced in retail.
Great discount, friendly staff.
Long hours, lack of benefits for part time/temp positions.

Fashion Associate/ Keyholder (Current Employee) – Pitt Meadows, BC – 9 May 2017
Reitmans has a great team of ladies working together. I learned how to manage the position as a keyholder and handle responsibilities. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that a customer left happy and satisfied with their shopping experience.
Fashion associate (Former Employee) – Bolton, ON – 8 May 2017
the environment was very good. I didn't feel left out or bored! I didn't know a lot bout fashion so it was kinda hard for me to accomplish certain tasks! hours along with shifts got cut a lot since the store was hardly ever busy

You need to learn to be adaptable, be a team player, have good conflict resolution and be a self motivator. You will work alone for short periods of time but mostly work in a team setting. Manager can be abrassive.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 27 March 2017
Training wasn't well planned out. District manager was self centred and unappreciative unless she needed something from you. They expect full time availability from part time employees basically. Don't give out enough hours to regular employees. Everyone's really snobby. Clothes aren't made the best and aren't really in style, nor do they fit well. The NEW stuff since summer 2016 is terrible. Clothing is made too big so I can't even get my size without ordering online therefore not getting my employee discount. Just not the best company. But it could be
