You'll have a great time, given you're in the perfect environment
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Lower Mainland, BC – 21 June 2018
The company was able to work around my schedule well, I was constantly pressured into working more hours/guilted into staying when I attempted to quit. The perks are awful, stemming from a "reward" system that does not account for the expensive clothing at all. Advancement is poor as well; consistent intense work and high hours (even in stores without assistant managers) will not lead to any sort of promotions, nor do associates receive pay raises, even after years of work (from my experience of other staff). While my manager was phenomenal and saved the entire job for me, I have heard horror stories from other locations. While some coworkers became close friends of mine, others made me fearful of going into work (these problem relations were never addressed). Upper management, while meaning well, was questionable at best.
However, most clothing is beautiful (even if obviously tailored to older audiences) and it is easy to become very attached to it. Even with the stereotypical awful customer here and there, the experiences with the great ones are memorable even to this day. Get ready for a very up-and-down job.
Very flexible scheduling
