Seasonal Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 12 May 2017
I was hired for the Christmas season, I was a cashier and also a support for the other sales executives. It was my first job in sales so I learned a lot about how to build a relationship with the clients in a respectful way and also learned about how a retail store works in an operative way.
The manager was really friendly and always willing to help me to become a better sales person, The workplace culture was fun, I became friends with my coworkers and had fun with them while developing my tasks.
I think the hardest part od my job was when the floor was extremely busy. On Black Friday the store was full so I learned how to handle stress while being a helpful hand for my coworkers.
The most enjoyable part of this job was being able to create a good relationship with my coworkers, once you have that, all tasks go smoothly.
Administrator (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 27 June 2016
This place is run by very bad management with a highly oppressive and dictatorial work culture. Absolutely no regard for employee satisfaction. The atmosphere was stifling having to deal with emotionally immature managers who don't appreciate good work. The small work environment exacerbates the gossip culture. The job in itself was fine, but too many negatives to warrant staying around.

Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 11 April 2015
Everyday at work is a fun day. From previous work experiences I have been working mostly as a team where I have to rely on my co-workers to get work done together. At Swarovski I was able to develop my leadership and interpersonal and communication skills.
I learned a lot. Many fun outings were planned.
The break room was crowded and small; there was no break room.

Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 2 May 2014
A typical day can be very quiet depending on the location. I have learned many aspects of the jewellery business. The management is very bad as far as staff and delegating duties. some of the co - workers are very disrespectful and it can be challenging with sales. The hardest part of the job is moving forward within the company. The most enjoyable part is when you have a customer that is happy and finds that special piece of jewellery to add to their accessories. when you know your really good at sales.
Lack of support in moving forward within the company
Full Time Keyholder/Senior Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Erin Mills Town Centre, Ontario – 9 March 2013
A typical day at work would be taking on extra responsibilities like finishing my manager's work so she can leave on time, fix broken poster frames so the store can properly display the new arrivals (took too long for the manager to get a replacement) and replacing burnt out display lights and ceiling lights because as per head office instructions we're to reduce costs (no one else in the store wanted to do it so i did).
got a good taste of the bad side of being a sales associate early
sales associate (Former Employee) – Burnaby – 1 December 2012
I worked in Swarovski Burnaby. Never had a manager being so irresponsible in my working life so far. The company allows her to hire her own daughter to work in the store. The scheduling has been favored to this new employee ever since. There are no employee benefits for part-timers. Manager disapprove employees to speak any languages other than English, but she is constantly on the phone speaking foreign languages. Callers usually refuse to leave messages, assuming those are all private calls. 19 people has left the store since it opens 2 years ago. More will be hired and more will be leaving. Even if you really like swarovski, please don't work at the one in Burnaby.
Brand Ambassador/ Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 11 June 2012
A typical work day includes making sure all products are in order everything is clean and tidy and all paper work is filled out. What I learned gradually after the years being there is about the product, I know most of all the names of the pieces and about each of them. The co-workers are great which makes the workplace fun and enjoyable. The hardest part about the job is I'm not there everyday so being updated is sometimes miscommunicated. The best part is the co-workers and the regular customers.
