Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 16 February 2019
The workplace was fun and outgoing, and the colleagues were amazing! Was sometimes flirted with by men coming into the store and made me uncomfortable. The only reason for leaving was I applied for part-time and was scheduled as if I was full-time without the pay full-time employees received. When trying to adjust my schedule my manager denied my request and said I was not allowed to work fewer days.
ACTIVITY LEAD (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 30 January 2019
Helped many women and men with their purchases. I learnt how to open/close the store as well as count float. Management was great. Had lots of fun working for the company. Holidays were the hardest part about the job due to lack of staff.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 29 January 2019
Pretty good place to start off your retail career. Really enjoyed working there most of the time but communication between employee and management is close to non existent. If part-time hours are really unreliable and not being scheduled for weeks at a time is fairly common. Full-time employees also don't do much but sell.
fulltime coworkers hard to tolerate, unreliable management, unreliable hours
Shipment Processing (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 25 January 2019
I have only worked at La Senza for a little bit and have only worked a few shifts due to me being a seasonal employee but the workers and management at the Barrie, Ontario store are amazing and they make you feel welcomed and safe.
Supportive Staff, Good break times, postive attitudes
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 21 January 2019
Worst place to work! Very awkward environment. Management only cares about themselves. People will boss you around even though they’re not even managment. Too much gossiping and of course no team work! (Some) power sellers think they’re manager!
Come in verify the objectives for the day as well as your personal objective. Being a part time seller you would have to spend your day at the cash and in the cabins since the full time sellers are the only ones on the floor. When you are talking to a client they don't want you to be with them they rather would like you to be cleaning up. Fun part is if some girls arent bashing you, you create good friendship and can create links between you and the customer. The happiest thing is seeing your client satisfied. Management poor didn't do the schedule on time, threatens when asked a vacation.
Seasonal Employee/Event Helper (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 6 January 2019
I worked as an event helper for the Black Friday event. The staff was so fun to work with and made me feel super comfortable working there. I learned how to work in a faced pace environment but there was always someone to help out.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Pickering, ON – 17 December 2018
Hiring manager was great, made it a fun and enjoyable job. A different manager was then placed in the store and made almost the entire staff leave. She was unfair and rude, it was no longer an enjoyable job.
stocker (Former Employee) – London, ON – 4 December 2018
I would sit in the back in the stock room of La Senza and I would organize the panties into bundles. I would then organize the bundles into bins categorizing them by the style of panties. I enjoyed the work there, and socializing with the other employee's was nice and casual, but the work that needed to be done was finished. There wasn't really anything I found difficult or unenjoyable. *I was doing this for volunteer work, so I was not paid.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 4 December 2018
I have to say one of the best companies I have ever worked for. I was treated with respect and empowered to excel in my position. The Lethbridge location has an amazing manager!!! She was fair, encouraging and positive! Just a great leader and person all around!!
Sales associate/Stock (Former Employee) – London, ON – 30 November 2018
Experiences depend on location and staff. can be enjoyable to work at providing you get along with fellow coworkers. However not much job security and hours can be almost non existant for part time staff.
Stock Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 21 November 2018
Every day at work wasn't boring, and I enjoyed the time I spent with everyone, the management at the location are excellent people and care for everyone's well being. the hardest part of the job for me was making sure I was finishing my jobs at the appropriate time due to how slow I was with the task. While it was hard for myself, I can say that the time I spent there was well worth it and an experience that I wouldn't replace
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 4 November 2018
I enjoyed working at La Senza as it helped me to establish a connection with others. In addition I developed skills working with marketing as well as sales. I also enjoyed the workplace culture as it was creative and fun.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 29 October 2018
So nice, super thoughtful team, however it was hard to stay due to the scheduling demands, but either way they were amazing to work with and I'm sure will be better off once they ae better staffed for their needs.
Sales Associate (Power Seller) (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB southgate mall – 27 October 2018
Start the day with making a sales goal using the past week to make a prediction of how the new week would go. Basic selling skills and helpful tools to better my objective. It was a real team orientated atmosphere. Overcoming slow days or weeks in sales. Making customers feel confident and happy with themselves.
