Great place
A great place to work. The managers were excellent and it was reasonably easy to get to know co workers quickly. An overall wonderful experience, definitely would work for the company again.

Iconic luxury brand in Canada.
Fantastic experience working with an iconic luxury retailer in Canada that enabled me to pursue advanced roles in other luxury companies. Advancement beyond the Sales Manager level is unfortunately rare.

My experience at Holt Renfrew
Renfrew is one of high-end department store. I have so money coworker who are down to earth and caring people. Sometimes we have got together after work for drinks and dinner. Some times we do have potluck and birthday lunch together at work. The only things everyone hate is the schedule. There is no fixed day or fixed hour of work and every one works morning, after noon, weekday, weekend and status holiday. Specially if you have a family it is too hard to balance with family time. Other than the schedule the environment is very good, but there is high stress working condition specially on holiday and weekends.

Working at Holt Renfrew
Working in IT environment, you have no supervision and are independent in taking decision in your domain.
Management will help you as and when you ask for help and solve your issue according.

Experience in Holt is one of the good experience I have in the IT industry.

Nice office in great location
Working at Holts has a lot of benefits including the employee discount which can be used in the store. The offices are easily accessed and management works hard to make employees feel welcome

Stressful and Understaffed
It's very stressful to work there because they are very understaffed and they cut hours during busy times. Management tries their best to help out but their hands are tied behind their back because of the corporate team.

Unprofessional managers
Started working at Holts in the spring. Had to wait over a month for an interview and a onboarding session. The store is great and %90 of employees are super great. The managers are a tad under trained and not qualified for such fast paced operations. Be ready for managers to ask you one thing and tell you to do another.

Good, but not great
Management incompetent, you don’t get paid enough to deal with the problems you get daily. Corporate team horrible and never improves, your voice as any employee isn’t taken into consideration.

The only good thing about the job is how relaxed it is usually, but other than that if you don’t have a good team around you, it’s a massive headache and not worth the amount you get paid

productive work place.
A typical day at work would be collecting all the garbage from all the vendors. Learned how to manage my time efficiently.
I also learned how to adapt in an evironment with people of different cultures.
