High sales expectations that do not meet the traffic of the store. Also poor management. They also events too much. that train the customers to only seek things during gift card events. SO much of the sales are done during that time period.
The store overall isn's that busy during the week. The management is just on your head all the time and would require you to fix clothes hung on racks all the time.They cant stand you being idle even for a second. Too much unnecceasry work to do for an outlet store. Would not reccomend anyone ever. Not even a good place to shop.

It is unbelievable how a large corporation can be managed so poorly. Store managers are very into micro-management, eg. high performing associates are watched by asset protection constantly, and poorly performed associates are nailed heavily by selling managers. Over the course of this year HBC was going through restructuring, where they let go of some really nice managers and kept the sit-all-day ones.
Great commission if you have the clientele.
Store traffic is slow on most day, unless you have the clientele, it's going to be bad commission income. You work 8.5 hr and gets paid for 7.5 hr.

As a manager your typical day starts with quick meeting with morning staff, then follow up emails, floor presence, afternoon huddle and more floor presence helping your team and clients giving them service as we mean it. The hardest part is when you have not enough time in one work day to do all you have to; the most enjoyable part of this job is to see how creative the stylists are and the happiness of the clients leaving the store with this black shopping bag with the beautiful bow on it.
Fantastic group of people in a fast paced work environment
Customer Service Ambassador (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 December 2016
A truly excellent place to work in customer service. My role was to engage customers, let them know about the store's current promotions and events, sign them up for accounts, as well as guide customers to the places they wished to go. Very simple, easy, and fulfilling.
The management, although large, is thoroughly invested in you and wants you to succeed. I've never met a group of managers more willing to help you out with an issue.
