    I worked at Le Château full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The opportunity for growth within in the company is there, they'd rather promote from within. The clothing is mostly Canadian made clothing which makes the customers impressed when you tell them making that a great selling point. One stop shop for casual, the office, a night out, or formal wear. Base pay with the opportunity to get commission.And the discount isn't bad either.

    Cons

    Base pay can be low. If you don't like spending your time with customers from beginning to end its not the job for you. Must enjoy styling clients. Can't have any tattoos more than 2" showing, stretched ears are a no, which can deter people from being themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider letting your employees show tattoos, it's a form of expression and style just as clothes are, they go hand in hand. You'll lose valuable employees.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Le Château.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews: the first in person than the phone interview. Due to company complicated organizational structure the person who interviewed me was not related to my department within the company hierarchy. The person who interviewed me on the phone rarely saw me during my employment.
