    Incredible learning experience

    Pros

    When I was initially hired by Aritzia I was so confident in my ability; I was a seasoned retail worker, I'd worked as a freelance stylist and I'd managed multiple customer facing businesses. Honestly, I thought it was going to be a brief stop gap until I found a more exciting opportunity. But right off the bat I recognized it was an incrediblly unique, successful business model that had a lot to teach me. Most importantly it was clear my managers were truly invested in my personal development and how that could relate to a career path. Working for Aritzia is a commitment, but it's also an education.I learned more business acumen and leadership skills in this role than any other job I've ever had.

    Cons

    It's a commitment. You have to be okay with getting your schedule a few days before the week starts and you have to be comfortable with being on your feet for 9 hours a day.

    Pros

    - You learn a lot and how they run a business is actually very genius - Devil works hard but their talent team works harder and hires amazing people (made some life-long friends) - You start from the bottom and work your way up (in most cases) which helps you see the bigger picture - Pays employees better than any other retailer

    Cons

    - Lack of work, life, balance - Stretched too thin - Employee turnover rate is awful (not for everyone) - Insanely fast pace - Hard to get a satisfying raise

    -Most of the girls that I worked with are cool. Those girls really made working at Aritzia fun and enjoyable. They were very supportive and all worked together to make sure the store ran smoothy. -It is easier for you to get promoted if you’re white that kinda is a pro

    Cons

    -High expectations for little pay -long hours unorganized -Lazy managers -Gossipy environment -claims to be a company for women but don’t actually care about women -Good luck planing ahead because your schedule will always be late

    Pros

    Pay is decent if your like 18-20

    Cons

    -Push for sales of $150hr, sounds easy but the way they make you approach customers is so invasive and annoying - a lot of people were so shady, clearly it’s just a job and your there for money not to make friends but sometimes things like that can’t go unnoticed. - no commission for regular stylists your basically fighting for sales to get hours BUT what they don’t tell you is that senior stylists get commission so your being competitive with regular stylist and senior.
