    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Aritzia part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Discount- if you’re an SA, 40% off, SSA and managers 50% off with seasonal voucher and others 30% off

    Cons

    Work environment is terrible- I’ve never worked somewhere where the people lacked professionalism and training to this extent. Aritzia does not properly train employees and instead (this is a quote) “we like to throw people into the water and see how they do.” I’ve also never met such a petty, short-sighted group of sales workers. The workplace draws in a certain type of employee, usually female, that remains difficult...

    Advice to Management

    You pit workers against each other and this makes Aritzia one of the most terrible work environments across any industry. Focus on training and proper development of workers.

    I worked at Aritzia part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Employee benefits (discounts), Responsive when I submitted my application, good clothes, diversity

    Cons

    Horrible communication with management and employees, managers were on phone on the floor, talking to friends, not professional, not informative.

    Advice to Management

    Treat new hires with more respect. When they are hired they should be greeted and welcomed into the environment so that they feel comfortable to learn, I did not feel that way.

      I worked at Aritzia part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      - The people were cool - The pay was great

      Cons

      The environment was way too competetive. I was a stylist at another job and i had the space to be creative and build amazing relationships with my clients AND coworkers. You do not have the room to do that at Aritzia. The girls are so focused on meeting sales that they completely rush and pressure clients to the register. They also steal sales when you're not looking, literally. I felt like I could not be creative and...

      Advice to Management

      When your sales are stolen, it feels like you come in and work hard for nothing. Rushing customers in the fitting room and not being able to work one-on-one with your client for as long as it takes really ruins the experience for the stylist.
