Very tiring job with horrible management and discouraging scheduling style.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 13 May 2018
Absolutely horrible work/life balance - you'll get called on every day off and cut on every long shift. Hours are determined by sales but regular SA's dont make commission. Managers are gossipy and childish at every location I visited.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 8 May 2018
I have learned about how to use a scanner and a tagging gun, to change/fix prices and tags for sales. Management is stern but relaxed at the same time. Hardest part is the hours, or standing for a long period of time. The pros is the employee discount, the work culture, and the atmosphere.
Style Advisor (Former Employee) – Burlington – 21 April 2018
Toxic work environment. Staff are cruel to one another. Upper management has no respect for labour guidelines. Workplace bullying and harassment is very prevalent. Very little room for advancement. Upper management are all friends and are not responsive to any feedback. They cut hours drastically and benefits are poor.
Short unpaid breaks, bullying, superficiality, store manager is a bully, management pretty much does nothing all day but text when on the floor. Judgemental and mean girls.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, Alberta – 12 April 2018
Loved it, made friends for a lifetime. Pushed me to be the best person I could be and supported me through life and work. I will always go back if they asked me. Reason I left is because there isn't an Aritzia in England
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 April 2018
Working days went by fast due to the fact that it was a fast paced environment. Loud music and a high volume store made for a fun shift every time. The team tries to maintain communication throughout the day which is always beneficial to the entire staff and management. Each sales associate is required to assist each customer attentively.
Boutique Associate (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 22 February 2018
I had the pleasure of working a seasonal bout at Aritzia and it was one of the most enjoyable work experiences I have encountered yet. The management and coworkers had the sweetest personalities and I never left work without a smile on my face.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 7 February 2018
The people at Aritzia are amazing, the girls are supportive and helpful. When I worked there I was the youngest out of our team, but I never felt talked down to or not respected. Aritzia managers always ensure you are doing ok and never make you do anything you do not feel comfortable with.
Shipment Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 February 2018
I was led to believe I would be working as a part-time sales associate and was instead given a position as a shipment associate. I was lucky to get 8 hours of work a week and the shifts would be at awful times, like 6pm-1am or 5:30am-10am.

They want you to work "as a team", yet everyone is compared to one another. Shifts are given to best sellers. But even when you preform at the top and ask for something from them, they often decline. They do whats best for the company, not for the employees.
