Excellent place for a sales professional

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsGreat benefits; killer discounts and packages.
Amazing co-workers; this is really the best place to work for retail. You are constantly trained on new brands/products and are given to tool to help you sell. Great earning potential as well, it is not unusual to see people who make 6 digit annually who works on the sales floor (after a while, of course)
Compensation is great, and the sky is the limit to how much commission you make.
If you have the competitive edge, it is a financially and socially rewarding place to work.

ConsCompetition; if you are starting new it is easy to feel like you don't belong.
High quotas, you are really as good as how much you can sell.

Advice to Senior ManagementI have noticed that a lot of the managers come from the sales floor, which is great because the company promotes from within. However, because of that, a lot of times they just don't have the finesse or skills to be a leader, especially when it comes to training new employees and having one-on-one discussion regarding their performance.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Like Prada... it looks great on the outside but hurts on the inside

    Counter Manager (Cosmetics) (Former Employee)

    I worked at Holt Renfrew


    Pros: -Just saying that you work at "Holt Renfrew" garners huge respect from anyone who overhears you -The starting salary is very good compared to other companies,… Cons: -Store management is catty -Other counter managers and staff steal clientele or commissions -Corporate events are scheduled with little notice (often vendor scheduled, and Holt's has no… Advice to Senior Management: Let the counter managers do their thing with their own flare, but if they need help, for God's sake, be there for them. So many… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
