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 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

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.

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.

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

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.

Terrible work environment. Full of drama, favouritism and unhealthy competition. There is no place for advancement. They fire/hire and change employees very frequently.

Direction was given from the top with very little opportunity to feel that you owned a project. The result was that employees lacked the ability to feel empowered.

One of my best experiences is Holt Renfrew. They always keep you in track to keep your sales high. High competition but still you can make your targets.

This place went downhill a few years ago and has kept it's downward spiral. Poorly run by people who barely know what they are doing. Management treats their staff very poorly. Stay away!
Pros
Great discount
Cons
Management in all departments, work culture
