Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 12 April 2018
No benefits provided to full time employees. All stores are pop up locations so contract positions only. People are hired based on connections, which means little room for advancement. Lots of micro managing and bullying from upper management. Expected to do a lot with minimal appreciation (zero recognition for the work you put in but constantly berating).
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 February 2018
In-store staff is great, however management is unprofessional, An example of this is the hiring of friends and family as assistant managers etc. Salary is fixed rate + commission and we can barely reach minimum wage. There is very little space for advancing in career.
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 January 2018
I just worked here for a short peroid of time, the people I worked with were helpful but the job itself had many challenges. Was a physical job, standing for long periods of time, had many general duties within.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 29 December 2017
As my first job it was an amazing opportunity and environment. The management was great and so were my fellow coworkers. It was a very competitive environment due to the commission based income. Taught me great skills in customer service.
Team leader and Sales person (Former Employee) – Sherbrooke, QC – 6 December 2017
This is the best job i ever had. I loved my manager, interaction with costumers, and learning new aspects of sales and fashion industry. This job is the reason I was able to become a manager in another store. This store sadly closed.
I loved working at Danier, but I have to admit that it is a stressful job for plenty of reasons. You have to make sales and you have to talk and interact with all of the clients. You also have to come into work looking professional and dressing really good. It was too much at a young age.
Overall, this was fun place to work. I've worked here part time, full time and seasonal The only major downside was the pay was terrible..below minimum wage with an unfair commission %. I believe hourly was 10.50 or something ridiculous. They want you to drive sales but pay you little commission.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 7 July 2017
Danier leather is one of the pioneers in leather manufacturing in Canada. I worked there while applying for my RN license and while it was not related to my profession, I learned a lot about customer service and dealing with people. I mostly dealt with stocks and inventory which taught me how to multi-task effectively.
Sales person (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 4 May 2017
Working at Danier was not the best experience, which is why I did not work there for very long. When I first started, there were 2 managers working that did not see eye to eye on things so it made the working environment hectic for the employees. I was also on-call most of the time on the weekends and worked long hours standing and running around. It was an outlet store so customers weren't careful with the merchandise and it made my job harder.
