This was by far the worst place I have ever worked. The manager is a complete monster. She will gossip about all the employees (including you) behind their backs (in front of customers sometimes), belittle, yell at you in front of customers, and micromanage you to the point of insanity. Narcissistic, unprofessional, egotistical, controlling psychopath
The work itself was good and the rest of the people you work with are great, so I'm sure any other location is fine to work at. Just not that one. Ever. Don't do it.
If you live in Ottawa DO NOT work for this company
Key Holder (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 31 March 2018
same company as bikini village. the managers (and district manager) literally bully and gossip about their employees. they are very unprofessional and hostile. anyone i know who has ever worked for this company hated their positions and management team. All of the managers are crazy and drama seeking. since they are all so young they love to seek drama. Rideau managers and bayshore managers are by far the worsttttt managers to work for. they will put you down for every little thing than go talk behind your back. the CEO doesn't even know what he is doing... very sad company. would not recommend.

La Vie en Rose (outlet) has been such an amazing workplace. I have learned so many skills while working here, including customer service, upselling and persuasion skills. I go to work so happy because of a tight-knit community. It feels like a family. There are so many perks of working here, including commission. It is an awesome system, with a great increase in pay cheques. The managers are super understanding with booking says off and any problems that pop up. Days are easy to book off and easy to switch if needed.
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 1 March 2018
Company is great to it's customers but HORRIBLE to it's employees. They expect un-realistic sales goals from you and give you nothing in return. No commission, no bonuses, nothing. You end up fighting with your coworkers to make sure you keep your own customer. No room for growth but management expects you to do duties that you shouldn't have to be doing. Been with the company for over a year and have yet to receive a raise or review. I come home everyday stressed out and in a bad mood

Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 11 February 2018
A typical day at work is usually slow at first but picks up quite nicely by mid shift, I enjoy working with the other employees they are fun and happy, as well as nice to be around. The management was just switched over but so far everything has gone smoothly. The hardest part is probably keeping the store well organized and clean, the most enjoyable part I would say is hanging and putting new stock out on the floor.
Junior Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 29 January 2018
A typical day at work includes me: opening and/or closing the registers, helping customers finding the right product and ensuring they are happy, helming with stock and visual elements, coaching the other staff members on their daily goals.
Caissière et service à la clientèle (Current Employee) – Mail Champlain – 24 January 2018
J'ai appris à mettre mon entre-gens de l'avant. Une journée de travail typique se résume à une journée peu valorisante. Le rapport entre les employées et les superviseures étaient assez mauvais. Je recherche de nouveaux défis ainsi qu'un environnement plus sain et valorisant pour mettre toutes mes capacités en oeuvre afin de remplir la fonction qui me sera attribuée dans mon prochain emplois.
Vendeuse (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 19 January 2018
J'ai apprécier travailler pour l'entreprise canadienne de La vie en rose, car on y retrouve plein de beau vêtements de lingerie féminine, des pyjamas et des costumes de bain d'excellentes qualité et à des prix concurrentielles. c'était ma première expérience de vente au détail et j'ai beaucoup aimer travailler la bas. Bien que je préfères faire de la caisse j'ai tout de même aimée travailler avec la clientèle, car je trouve que ce travaille est stimulant.
Une belle première expérience dans un magasin de vêtement
Key Holder (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 23 August 2017
This location has one of the worse management. They do not care for their employees, all they do is talk behind everyones back. Management is very unorganized and unprofessional, it really surprises me that this location is still running, with poor management and with all these employees quitting.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 21 August 2017
This company I had thought was a great place to start in a management position. I have had an amazing store manager. She always is giving coaching and feedback, she's always there for us and I don't see that support for her. In our district we've had multiple visits, now with a new operations director. It's sad that my manager in a very short time has done ALOT for the store, the district and the company and yet it's never enough.
I would like the "big guys" above her get the results they're asking for. My manager balances and pushes for a great work environment yet has to ask us for what they want and it leaves all of us feeling horrible about ourselves because no matter what we do it's not enough to keep the company happy.
Nothing like killing a business with unrealistic expectations.
Having a great store manager, trying on product, staff discounts, helping people, working for a Canadian company
Positive work environment, rewarding job, lots to learn
Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 9 August 2017
Love working here. The working environment is really positive in my store and our regional is amazing. It took a bit of time with my manager but now love the management. Good flexible hours. Sometimes shifts do get changed last minute but the girls always check at the end of the night to call anyone if necessary. Very rewarding job and the discount is great. Also bonuses are not impossible to accomplish like making commission on $300 sales and have the best average sales for the month. Big downside is specific to my store, we are one of the smallest stores in canada and head office won't move us but still send us so much stock because we have great ratios. Overall love it here.
Discount, positive work environment, bonuses, customers are usually really great
