Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 6 November 2018
Only accept a role here if you're desperate for some cash. Go into it with a temporary mindset because that's how they view you. Overworked, underpaid - no one really knows what they're doing there.
Extremely political. Imagine the average workplace politics and then times that by 10. Every decision made is made with a negative impression on how it will be viewed/accepted.
They are a really conservative company that is stuck in the late 1800s and they tend to hire people with the 1800s management mentality. If you do something revolutionary you are either viewed as a hero and then get fired, or you are viewed as a threat and then get fired. So just be average, and get your average pay, and look for something better while you continue to be average.
HR Department - really ineffective and purposeless.
Brand Ambassador (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 October 2018
I was offered a seasonal position with the guarentee that I was going to get a part-time position after the season was over. The manager made me do so much extra work and she still didnt give me the part time position.
HR Coordinator (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 22 August 2018
I worked here for over 3 years at the beginning of my career and was disappointed to see the company from the inside. The Leadership Team was discouraging and demotivating. There was a large disconnect from the parent company in Austria (and even the team in the US) in an attempt to differentiate themselves as a Canadian company.
Directeur de plusieurs magasins (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 14 August 2018
entreprise où l'on peut se developper sur le plan administratif et acquérir de nouvelles compétences.
L'aspect le plus difficile est la gestion de plusieurs magasins sans avoir les ressources necessaires parfois L'aspect le plus agreable est le fait d'avoir une cooperation entre gestionnaire merveilleuse.
Amazing company to work for. They do all they can to make sure you reach your sales goals and they offer extra incentives to employees on top of commission. It's also a great introduction to luxury retail for anyone who is interested.
Seasonal Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 12 May 2017
I was hired for the Christmas season, I was a cashier and also a support for the other sales executives. It was my first job in sales so I learned a lot about how to build a relationship with the clients in a respectful way and also learned about how a retail store works in an operative way.
The manager was really friendly and always willing to help me to become a better sales person, The workplace culture was fun, I became friends with my coworkers and had fun with them while developing my tasks.
I think the hardest part od my job was when the floor was extremely busy. On Black Friday the store was full so I learned how to handle stress while being a helpful hand for my coworkers.
The most enjoyable part of this job was being able to create a good relationship with my coworkers, once you have that, all tasks go smoothly.
