Working at Massimo allows you to work in a fun and unrestricted environment with other colleagues and you can really get to meet people in high places, but the chances for growth within the company is really restricted and sometimes you might work extra hard to get a promotion, only for them to hire external people.
There have seasonal uniforms which you aren't allowed to take home except to wash/dry clean them. The cost comes out of your pocket. You need to be changed and on the floor when your shift starts otherwise management will write you up for being late, even if it's a minute or two. They also don't give breaks for 5 hour shifts which is against the law. Canadian labour laws state that employees are guaranteed a 30 minute break for a 5 hout shift (paid or unpaid). Massimo does not give you a break AT ALL. Management actually said "no breaks" when briefing you for a 5 hour shift. They are quite literally breaking the law with how they treat their employees. Be warned.
Massimo Dutti is a great store to work at. It is very professional with a great team and pleasant clients. Massimo allows you to gain customer service and leadership experience through everyday work exposure. You must be able to work 20 hours minimum a week which is great for students in college/university. But it can also get tiring when you're on your feet working 9-hour shifts.
