Good place to work for part time
It was a good place to work, only because of the people that I worked with. Upper management didn't seem to care much. There wasn't much room for advancement in the area that my store was.

I found working for this company rewarding but still wanting more of a challenge. I hope to have personal and growth within starting a new career
Looking back on my experiences as the senior assistant manager of the Jean machine located in Toronto’s Eaton Centre I definitely have many things to be proud of and reflect upon.

I’m proud to say that I commited 250% of myself into my work and helping develope and coach my staff to run a successful business/location.


I’m now looking forward to starting a new chapter of my life and working career with new challenges and endeavours.
Pros
Fun work environment, encouraged to let personality shine through
Cons
Inconsistent supply of product

Fun place to work
This was my first experience in management, working as an assistant manager. I received a lot of training and positive feedback and encouragement. It was fun working there, but advancement was rarely available.

Toxic Environment
The manager displays extremely poor professionalism while on the job by abusing the company phone, taking long lunch breaks, gossiping about other staff, refusing to serve customers, etc... It was a difficult experience working there since everything I saw and heard was against my values as a person. I ended up contacting HR after exchanging words with the manager about my concerns.
Pros
Discount
Cons
Management. Toxic environment.

Competitive and fast-paced work environment.
A typical day at Jean Machine as a sales associate would consist of maintaining the organization of the store. This ranges from simply restocking products to ensuring the sales floor is kept up to perfection. Meeting daily sales quotas were crucial as well as ensuring to upsell focus items.
Pros
50% off for employees.
Cons
Management is uptight.

Family Environment
Family feel with a great loyal group of members throughout the company. Unfortunately little room for advancement because people rarely leave (some there for 20+ years). Pay/bonus structure is low in comparison to other retailers.

poor management
Verbally abusive and explosive manager. Would berate employees in front of customers. Worst working experience of my life. It's unfortunate because the rest of the team was great.

terrible workplace, worse management
I worked here for a while under a manager that was extremely unprofessional.

lots of double standards, manager can do whatever they want (including sitting in the back room on their phone or go shopping in the mall during their shift) and staff gets rude comments all the time, sometimes talking about customers being too fat or ugly for their clothes after they leave (even when they buy) noticed a lot of racist comments too. definitely avoid this place!
Pros
none
Cons
bad management, low pay

Your hard work isn't valued
Company always values money before their staff. Certain locations get ignored from HO and only big city locations get proper product allocation.

No longer a family run company.


Company slogan is to be the first choice for high quality designer goods, yet sells a lot of low quality items from china.

Horrible horrible company

store was located in a school city, so traffic was pretty good. High turn over rate.
