Retail Salesperson (Former Employee) – Premier Outlet Mall, Milton – 1 August 2018
was a productive place to work, however, not enough hours given. Supervisors not very creative with fairness when it came to scheduling - some were given too many hours where some were given like 6 hours a week.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 31 July 2018
Hated my experience with Calvin Klien. The worth management, felt like i was in high school. They have favoritism which doesn't correlate with your working habit. I found that if they dont like you personal they will mistreat you by giving you less hours and picking at you for every little thing you do. One word to explain is unjust. this is in Scarborough town center
Associée aux ventes (Former Employee) – mirabel – 26 July 2018
everyone is nice, good place to work, but unfortunally you don't have a comission for all the job you do, and the sells. at least we have discount, and the manager is adorable! always nice and friendly with everyone.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Fairview, ON – 25 July 2018
The management was friendly and competent. There is no commission so the work environment isn't tense, which is the most enjoyable part. The least enjoyable part is that most stores are over-stocked, meaning there's more cleaning to do than other stores at the same level. You'll learn everything you need to work in other retail stores at the same level but nothing beyond.
Part time sale associate (Current Employee) – Balzac, AB – 27 June 2018
Management is less desirable. No personality and treat staff extremely poorly. Cannot keep staff due to their lack of proper management skills. Management talks about other staff members behind their backs to everyone who will listen. Very negative.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 30 May 2018
A typical day included greeting and helping customers with their needs. Organizing, unpacking, and resizing various undergarments as well as maintaining the stock room. Depending on who you worked with, the day will be enjoyable and light-hearted.
Customer (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 8 May 2018
I am a loyal customer at the Scarborough Town Centre location, as it is closer to home. Even though I am a regular customer there and shop very frequently, every single time I walk in the store I get stared down, especially by the store manager (short, white lady, with red hair, and long eye lashes). It is completely inappropriate and very uncomfortable. I have started conversations with her a couple of times, to build some what of a relationship, but she just seems like a cold woman. All she does is walk around the store staring at customers. She is creating a very bad shopping experience for her store. It's very offensive, and many times I've walked out without purchasing due to this fact.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 6 May 2018
The store manager's number one rule is "Fairness", but she is the last to follow her own words. She is barely ever in the store, and when she is she is always in the back room pretending to do work. She will constantly micromanage you, and doubt you on all the work that you do for her, even when you go out of your way to meet all expectations. When you try to let HR or the District manager know of her bad habits and the horrible working environment, they have absolutely NO IDEA how to deal with it. It is an extremely UNHEALTHY working environment, and ministry of labour should be involved to prove this fact.
Cashier Lead (Former Employee) – Halton Hills, ON – 13 April 2018
Typical day as a Cash Lead starts by balancing your till at the beginning of your shift. Performed transactions/exchanges with clients, restocked any needed supplies, balanced till at the end of shift & printed receipts and logged transactions made through out the day.
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Toronto premium outlets – 23 March 2018
High focus on customer service, well trained management to work with, easy going sales associates as everyone is very close, efficient work environment, high class service on sales floor, however lack of teaching on first day due to how busy store was so I felt quite unsure of where to be. Learned to work under pressure, problem solve, have patience in difficult situations, approach customers appropriately and read the as well what they need and how to diffuse or assist in situations. Learned point of sales system and how to do stock runs within the warehouse as well as sales skills. Hardest part of job would be the high volume of customer service needed due to the store being in an extremely busy area, multiple people are always asking for help at a time as well trying to communicate with foreigners plus dealing with theft or stealing. The most enjoyable part would be getting to know the friendly staff and creating an enjoyable atmosphere and being appreciated by customers and getting discounts on the new merchandise that comes in.
Productive, sociable, fun workplace with understanding management
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 5 March 2018
I had established myself at this workplace and worked there for many years throughout high school; I even returned for the summer after leaving for university. I worked many closing shifts as they needed someone who was confident and efficient when closing the store, especially on the busiest weekdays. My schedule was consistent weekly. They provided a lot of trust in me as a floor sales associate. At times I was even assigned to train new oncoming staff. Managment was understanding and helpful and I was able to build a strong connection with them throughout my time working there. I saw many employees, as well as management staff, move on from their positions at our location or upgrade to a higher position. A trusting bond was built with myself, the managers and the other staff members that created a family-oriented environment.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 10 February 2018
The only part I liked about working here was I got paid and I had friends there. The GM was ridiculous. Wouldn't be on the floor when we needed extra hands for busyness or projects, would talk poorly about customers and avoid going on the till to help, would talk inappropriately to most employees. In the slow season, the only people that got hours were fulltime people so: the GM, AM, and three supervisors. Store was always a mess because there were never enough staff. Like 1 employee to 10 customers. Not good at all.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – New Westminster, BC – 14 November 2017
Calvin Klein is a great brand. i learned a great deal about the iconic fashion company. Always up to date with latest fashion trends. They need a better training program for managers or at least get feedback about what managers would like to progress in the company.
