Cashier/Stock of Retail Store Location (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ON13 June 2018
Ardene is a great company to work for, the staff you work with is more like family. The management is always helpful and willing to help you advance in the company and shifts are flexible.

Fun place to work, flexible for students with busy schedules.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK10 June 2018
Overall I good job to have while you're still in school, as hours were very flexible. Good location, and environment to be in. Typical days at work consisted of assisting customers with fitting rooms, finding items, ringing them through at the till. It is a good workplace to extend your knowledge within retail.

Don’t work here
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Brandon, MB5 June 2018
Thinking about working here? Don’t, management is awful and you’ll be left looking for another job in no time. Management is manipulative and does not care about the employees.

Stressful workplace
Vendeuse (Former Employee) –  Place-Versailles, QC4 June 2018
It was really bad managed, the manager and assistant manager would often disagree and include employees in their arguments. Stressful environment of work, with a bad vibe.

Good job if you like people
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Sherwood Park, AB4 June 2018
A typical day would be unpacking new stock, refolding clothing, letting people into change rooms, helping people find things and cleaning the store.

However it seems that the more power a person has, the less work they actually do.

Decent part-time job. Depends on your location.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON23 May 2018
This isn't bad for a minimum-wage part-time job. Your experience will be heavily influenced by the job location and who you work with (esp your manager). This isn't commission-based, which I enjoyed because I wasn't pressured to make sales.

Worst place to work! Mangement is very bad!!
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Fredericton, NB6 May 2018
One of the most exhausting and stressful work places I ever worked at. Management targets employees and lots of people have left crying from this place. There's very little training but you will get in trouble if you don't know how to do something right. You're expected to clean, greet customers, work on cash and fitting rooms while management stands at cash and talks or goes for multiple breaks to go shopping in the mall. There are no benefits working at Ardene and for all the work expected from you, McDonald's is a better option.

nothing

Terrible Work Environment
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Halton Hills, ON2 May 2018
Working at Ardene was a terrible experience. Managers are rude and extremely inefficient in creating a positive work environment. There is a lot of gossip that takes place in the store and a lot of employee turnover. They do not give those who ask for more hours, more hours, they give it to those who ask for less. It is very unorganized and managers are very unappreciative of the work employees do. If they want workers to stick around and be more committed to the job they should treat their employees like proper human beings.
Pros
30% discount on cheap clothes
Cons

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB29 April 2018
workplace was clean, management was good, the pay was typical. The only thing is that it's easy to steal from, the customers aren't the easiest to deal with.

Get to see all the new fashion trends coming in. The customers are always fun to help. Management is great for backing their workers up. Would recommend for anyone just getting into fashion.
