    Pros

    - the other sales associates are great and you meet some fun people - relaxed dress code - just no big logos or anything trashy - easy work for the most part - managers were all nice and great people - first dibs on new clothes and you could nab products on your break - flexible hours and it was easy to trade shifts or get days off

    Cons

    - pathetic 10% discount that anyone with the SPC card could get - mundane, boring work that consisted of sales associates walking around blindly pretending to be doing something when days were slow (which is very often) - management, though brilliant and very nice people, was haphazard and seemed rather confused though this is probably mostly due to constraints from upper management. - very counterproductive upper management : new store opening but not allowed to advertise that fact anywhere so no one knew that there was a new store. Worst of all, this is supposed to be the FLAGSHIP store in Vancouver. - ridiculous sales goals set by HQ: had our hours slashed if they weren't reached and it wasn't unusual to see ONE girl manning the entire upper floor and ONE girl at the bottom floor. Management then wondered why there were no customers when it was obvious that there was no one to promote sales and there was no advertising of the store done. - clothes were moved around on what seemed to be a daily basis, which made it near impossible to find where gobacks belonged. You could work one day, memorise the entire floor and it'd be different the next day, resulting in customer dissatisfaction when no one can locate a particular item. - horrible, repetitive music playlist

    Advice to Management

    Definitely need to get rid of inefficient, useless policies: if a new flagship store opens, obviously do some advertising and allow for the flagship store to promote itself. Lower management though, keep on being awesome :D


  2. Very fast paced and keeps you up to date on the latest trends in fashion!

    Pros

    The store manager, co-manager, other assistant manager, the visual team and all of the employees were very helpful with me throughout my training process. I was able to get my keys after the first week because they did such a great job training me!

    Cons

    Most nights I close we are out much later than we're supposed to be because we're understaffed and recovery is almost impossible to finish in the allotted time. Also, we do a lot of work for the amount of pay we receive.

    Advice to Management

    Our District Manager seems to be in contact with us every day and I have nothing but great things to say about her!
