Continuously adapting to the industry, but the job can be very repetitive.
Floor Manager (Current Employee) – Pickering, ON – 2 November 2017
Lot's repetitive tasks, no one day will be the same but if you do not enjoy that type of work it will get tedious very quickly. The company is quick to adjust to any mistakes it makes in previous years constantly adapting to current trends in the retail and fashion industry. Upper management is good, but moving up in the company is difficult. Good customers make the job fun and enjoyable, but bad customers will easily trump that feeling.
Good working environment. Great management and staff.
Customer Service Assistant/Cashier (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 2 November 2017
Tommy Hilfiger is a great corporation to work for. The management is very understandable and professional. I have learned many skills at this job, like how to handle customers, how to speak to them, how to be organized, how to be efficient and a lot more. The staff at Tommy Hilfiger is great.
Sale Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 26 October 2017
I have transferred between two Tommy's and they both keep you very busy. There is never not a job to do whether it is out on the floor or in the back. You are constantly keeping up, especially with tidying! Customers are the number one priority regardless, which is the best part because being able to help them is always amazing. You can also pick up some things among different languages the more you work, as this place is always full of diverse people walking through the door!
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 21 October 2017
Honestly, the best part about working here would be the co workers and the amazing friendship you develop with them. Obviously the generous discount is a plus but that novelty wears off since its not like you buy clothing every week from there. That's about all the good i have to say about this store. The management gives special treatment and promotes those whom they have a close relationship with even though they may not be the best employees rather than those who truly deserve it. They expect you to go above and beyond your job description and do work meant for those with higher job titles. I believe that if you are being given extra work you should be paid as such. There is so much disorder with the way this place is run, particularly with the departments and the stock room as it is constantly a mess but is rarely dealt with.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 20 October 2017
I did not feel respected by the other employees and I didn't get to have the same amount of break as the other employees it was very messy in the back and not very accommodating. I was told that I was hired part-time as a high school student for the year but they ended up using me to their advantage over the holiday and then fired me after New Year's. They didn't accommodate my needs what so ever.
Sales (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 20 October 2017
Terrible place to work. The best part of the job was the employee discount. Employees aren't valued and there are way too many expectations set out. There as a full time sales person and much time was spent visual merchandising so time was spent away from trying to get sales. Management would be upset if my sales numbers were down. Couldn't win either way.
Stock Associate/ shipper (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 10 October 2017
good people work at tommy hilfiger. You always have someone around to help you out. The hard part of the job was when it was super busy to much going on. most enjoyable part of the job was learning new things and working with your co workers. management was okay, they were all nice and hard workers.
Store had its moments but management become weak and didn’t get the associates respect
Stock Associate (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 10 October 2017
New management is required for the store especially the head management. I put a lot of effort into making that stock room the best to my abilities but management didn’t have power to help me or any of the stock associates to keep it at its best
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 October 2017
I have learned that you are not allowed to be yourself while working, and I understand being professional, but I feel like customer service goes beyond then just the knowledge of wherever you work. Hardest part of the job is putting up with the passive aggressive managers.
Associate (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 27 September 2017
Making sales and greeting customers is what Tommys all about. Making sure customers find what they're looking for in a clean and tidy store is mainly what I had to do. Stocking and other small chores were also apart of my job but it helped make time go by on a slow day.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Moncton, NB – 25 September 2017
didnt stay long but I did learn to organize clothes and display them properly. Fun to work with many people every shift. always new clothes to try hardest part would have been the proper way to fold without making a mess of the sales floor
Retail Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 22 September 2017
This store located in Heartland, Mississauga is a great place to work, especially for students in high school seeking their first part-time job. Although the hours are not the best, they are flexible with their schedule
Team Lead (Current Employee) – London, ON – 6 September 2017
fast pace environment, with decent people to work with, Helped build my character as well as teach me valuable skills for a workplace as well as the real world. management works well with employees and there is room for advancement and growth within the company
DIRECTOR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 23 August 2017
I had the chance to be part of the Executive Group at Tommy in the late 90's it was a wonderful experience as the Leadership of the Company exhibits vision and capabilities exceeding any company I had previously been employed by.
The Company as been sold three times since I was last with Tommy, I cannot qualify their current culture.
Lead Sales Associate and Receiver (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 16 August 2017
I became a lead hand employee quickly, that turned into a visual merchandising management position. I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent there, and was able to eventually travel to opening stores and oversee the execution of the companies brand standards and train new employees. I enjoyed having a certain degree of creativity with the store designs and enjoy working with customers
