Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 February 2019
A day at Ardene would consist of helping costumers and fellow employees. I learned to express myself and be more open to talking with others. The management was very helpful in making my job experience fun and engaging.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Salmon Arm, BC – 14 February 2019
I worked at Ardene for 7 months before management decided to lay everybody off a week before Christmas. Management in general is terrible — the assistant manager and manager are best buddies in and outside of work and would always team up to belittle me. Never felt like the work I did was enough even when I went above and beyond. District manager was equally as awful — gave me vague, insincere answers whenever I had inquiries. This company truly does not care about the livelihood of their employees.
Discounts, that’s it.
Inconsistent management, rude management, environment similar to that of a high school hallway.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Salmon Arm, BC – 4 February 2019
I enjoy working here. Friendly staff, good work environment but management isn't the greatest and overall they seem super unorganized. a few staff members had no shifts for a couple weeks causing them to quit.
Assistante-gérante (Current Employee) – Beloeil, QC – 3 February 2019
L'entreprise est là pour ses employés. Nous sommes bien rémunérés. Par contre, nos horaires changent souvent car nous devons souvent couper les heures en fonctions du budget d'heures par rapport aux chiffres que nous avons fait.
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – St. Albert, AB – 2 February 2019
Although a very popular store and always busy, it was very poorly managed. I noticed some employees being favored over others and also witnessed the mistreatment of some employees. Customers also noticed mistreatment and verbal abuse and commented on what a terrible place it must be to work. Staff were walking out on a weekly basis, they have difficulty keeping staff and even though I was a key holder, I also chose to leave.
Associée aux ventes (Former Employee) – Mascouche, QC – 29 January 2019
Ardene Co. demande de constants changements marketings et visuels, souvent excessivement compliqués et donne très peu de temps pour accomplir ces changements. J'ai vécu une mauvaise expérience de gestion qui a résulté en ma démission de la compagnie. Ce qui me manque le plus est mon équipe de travail, qui sont devenues des amies plutôt que des collègues.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 18 January 2019
I love working because of my co-workers. They make the terribly rude middle aged soccer moms tolerable. The discount genuinely sucks and is never worth it. I think some of the dress code policies are ridiculous and I generally hate the store aesthetic.
