Great people, good discount, awesome clothes. The company is extremely organized and really well run, and that makes it a worthwhile experience if you want to learn to do retail right. There is a manual for everything, and every task is laid out step by step. The staff is on point and is really taught to service the customer.
If you're looking for a retail experience that is super fun, noncompetitive and low-key, this probably isn't for you. But if you really want to learn to be a retail salesperson for pretty good pay and wear beautiful clothes, Aritzia is a nice place to work. It seems like people who have what it takes stay there for a while, and though the company does pressure the staff to meet goals, the managers at my location were really nice and understanding. The staff was also a really cool group of women.
If you're working at Aritzia you are really working hard, so don't expect to take it as a part time fun job. They will certainly ask you to work more hours than you bargained for, and you'll definitely start to feel like your job takes up more than just work time with meetings, covering shifts, completing online training, and so so many in person trainings. But that's because Aritzia really knows their stuff, and the company makes sure the staff knows their stuff as well. They are a top retailer for a reason, and that's because they know how to do what they do - sell clothes!
Advice to Management
Although I felt like Aritzia was a bit more than I could handle with my limited time, I really do think the company does a fantastic job. I see all of the reasons that the company demands so much from the employees, so my only advice is to keep up the good work!

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Aritzia (New York, NY).
The application is online, and they get back to you generally within a week. It was easy setting up an interview time, and they asked questions such as "tell me about yourself", "why aritzia" and other general sales associate questions. Super friendly!
