    Pros

    Benefits are okay, work was easy. Supportive of individual needs such as having to take time off to study for exams. Company culture was fun, the company wide best sales list kept people on their toes but was all for fun. The commission can get very good if you put some effort in.

    Cons

    Could get stressful sometimes with work spikes.

    Pros

    - If you're amazing at selling, there is some additional commission pay.
    - Up to 20% of the merchandise is made in Canada.
    - Head office is very hands on and makes visits to stores.
    - Family business.

    Cons

    - The DM would promise promotions to employees that weren't feasible.
    - High pressure from DM during store visits.
    - No stock associates/cashiers at smaller locations.
    - Not well marketed outside of Quebec, therefore difficult to reach sales goals.

    Advice to Management

    Show a better attitude to your sales associates and key holders (less condescending, more respect). Get a new DM for the Toronto division.

    Pros

    I did learn transferable skills in customer service that I can use in the future. I also learned how to work with many different types of people. I also learned some management and loss prevention tips while working there.

    Cons

    The company itself doesn't do much for their employees. Rewards for big sales and good sales weeks went unnoticed in small locations. If you work in a big location, that's the only time you are recognized. Very restricted in their vacation scheduling as well and staffing as my manager "never had hours" in the 3.5 years I worked there. And very little opportunity to move up in company.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge your employees more and respect in the store will improve.

    Pros

    great people to work with, high end and very respected clientele.
    Working on commission was okay, however the pay could be better.

    Cons

    the pay
    there is no chance to move up in the company which is not good.
    lack of communication with staff

    Advice to Management

    they need to reward employees for there hard work and promote the people that should be insted of hiring from outside
