    I have been working at Aritzia full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good music, great clothes, emphasis on customer service so it's more than just folding sweaters. you have to really get to know the customers and the merchandise. Focus on clienteling. Learn great conversation skills

    Cons

    Ridiculous system of tracking sales--basically you work as if you're earning commission. company keeps track of sales per hour. but instead of earning commission for outstanding sales you basically earn more hours. you're working hard in order to get the opportunity to work more. great system from the company's POV but hard on the girls and leads to cattiness and unnecessary stress on days where traffic is just slow. company rhetoric is also intense. upper level management seems to be totally brainwashed when it comes to aritzia's "values". approach to most problems follows a textbook 12-step program provided by the company.

    also shifting sales ranks means that the number of hours you may get per week changes. so there are no regular schedules. you get your schedule for the next week the saturday before the week starts. there is basically no way to make personal plans ahead of time for anything. and hours are not posted online, you have to call the store each week or check the schedule binder if you're working on saturday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    think more about the effort that the girls are putting in and the amount of traffic at the store over sales per hour.

    take a step back and think about things from a non-aritzia, non-corporate persepective---RELAX!!!!
