Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC29 October 2018
Fast Paced
There was no unity between the management at all, everyone was always out for themselves.
No room for advancement
GM always favoured few of the staff.

A fun place to work.
Brand Ambassador (Current Employee) –  Richmond, BC27 August 2018
It is a fun place to work. Day to day work is really busy as a lot of customers come in. It is a great place to start your career in sales. Though there are no growth opportunities.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Milton, ON30 May 2018
A typical day at the Toronto Premium Outlet working at Polo Ralph Lauren was busy and hectic. Being that Polo is the busiest store in the mall I have learned to effectively deal with multiple customer concerns at one time. Polo has given me the most authentic retail experience and I look forward to bringing my experience somewhere new.
Pros
friendly staff
Cons
anxious customers

Productive and fun workplace
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Cookstown, ON21 March 2018
I would usually come in and be on the sales floors talking to customers. I learned how to interact and treat different types of customers. Hardest part would be when a customer would get upset at you. My co-workers they were amazing and a lot of fun to work with.
Pros
Fun job
Cons
none

Great product, poor management
Merchandise planner (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON28 February 2018
Leadership was great at product but team leadership wasn't very strong.

Buyers ran the office which was fine, but leaders could have built a better structure and environment for structured approach to business creation.
Pros
Strong product offerings, strong buyers
Cons
Non existent fiscal discipline

Pressure on the stylists and no good employee benefits
Stylist (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC22 February 2018
There is pressure on the stylists even when there is no much clients, which we were encouraged to harass with our help. No client likes to be followed around or constantly watched. Stylists are paid almost minimum wage for selling over 5000$ during an 8 hours shift. No commissions. The employee benefits consist of a 50% off the merchandise which is only a benefit if you are used to shop in their stores.

However, they teach good selling techniques which can be useful for future retail jobs.
Pros
Selling techniques, diversity
Cons
Salary, benefits

work here if you want to get treated like garbage
stylist (Former Employee) –  eaton centre toronto5 February 2018
Varies at every location. The eaton centre was particularily bad, bad clients, AWFUL management. Never get breaks and not even allowed to drink water on the sales floor. Very aggressive sales goals and catty environment only there are no incentives to sell, terrible pay, no commission, bad shifts, no benefits, and heavily micromanaged. Very bad work culture, one of the worst. Bad work life balance as the shifts are always changing and often management would not put out your schedule until the day before the week starts! very frustrating place to work where you dont feel valued and its very obvious from the extremely fast level of turnaround.

Première expérience en vente
Commis à la vente (Former Employee) –  Mirabel, QC17 October 2017
Reçu une formation de base en vente et les valeurs de l'entreprise. Beaucoup aimé le contact avec la clientèle. Par contre, compte tenu du fait qu'il s'agissait de l'ouverture d'un nouveau magasin dans un nouveau centre commercial, les gestionnaires ont eu quelques défis imprévus qui ont eu des impacts sur leur gestion du personnel.
Pros
Vêtements à rabais et certains repas gratuits.
Cons
Communications inefficaces relativement aux vacances

Horrible management team
Lead Cashier and Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC29 September 2017
There was always a changing of employees and management team members at my location. The people that I worked with was awesome and they felt like a family. However, with over 20 managers and supervisors coming and going during my time got the employees to lose respect towards them. Sometimes it felt like sales associates were managing the store better. Moreover, once a manager gets to know you, they would take advantage of your work and get you to do long hours and overnights. Also, in my location, people who worked for 1 year/2+ years were getting paid less then the newcomers. Would go back for my co workers but hate the management team.
Pros
they have a great team
Cons
horrible management team, long hours, the pay doesnt reflect someone work, overnight shifts, you have to learn a little in each section of the store (cashier, floor first, floor set, fitting room..etc

Bad management, terrible work enviroinment
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON25 September 2017
The manager of the store was inconsistent. Would never show up in time for work nor put the effort, yet when she did it was to berate us for missing target and sales. The management team is very pushy towards signing up people for emails and cashiers were put down if they couldn't reach "sign up" targets. The employee turnover, due to bad management and overall bad environment, was so high they hire new batches of employees every two weeks. If you need a quick job while you look around, apply here. Just be aware that will be treated as a tool and not as a person

Superviseur logistique (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC21 August 2017
En tant que coordonnateur administratif pour la grande région de Montréal, j'ai accepté avec grand enthousiaste les nombreux défis que Match Mg ont mis sur mon passage.

Cette entreprise a réussi à élargir mes champs d'intérêts en gestion, en vente, en communication et en service à la clientèle par les nombreuses entreprises qu'elle représente telles que L'Oréal, MNY, Rona et Danone.
