    I have been working at Canada Goose full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Promised 37-40hr/wk Good hours Not that hard just selling coats, jackets, & sweaters.

    Cons

    Corp & Management don’t have a conscience; they will lie to your face because they are being well compensated. Sadly this is how to justify what they are doing is right. Management always comes from a C-level brand or a fashion outlet ; thus the lack of interpersonal skills or the whole “fake it til you make it”. Last, that’s why there’s always a high turn-over rate; the brand ambassador are always doing the...

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, karma will eventually come back to haunt you in your career because you didn’t practice great business. That art is lost in this fake culture & labels.

    I worked at Canada Goose

    Pros

    50% discount on jackets, limit to 3 during the year 1 in store and the other 2 whenever Canada Goose tells you its time... so have that money saved up or you’ll miss it. You also have access to discontinued or over stock product on employe website where you can get unlimited amount or things during the year at 70-90% off sizes and everything can be limited. The company has an amazing culture in the work place! Employees...

    Cons

    The way they get the fur is not how they told us... you are not brainwashed but the lines are very blurry if you take the time to pay attention. They get protesters often... but that just brings more customers HONESTLY!!! Sell targets are often hard to reach because a lot of the customers speak mandarin so if you dont speak there language your losing 50% of all potential sales in store. Targets were between 6,000$-15,000$...

    Stop thinking your so high and mighty! Come back earth and be nice! Dont let good employee go! Wear your black shoe like everyone else if your constantly going to criticize on others uniform and dress code! Stop being on your phone allll the time! And give a hand instead of giving more people to brand ambassador when they are clearly busy! Work and help your BA clean and maintain if your just going to stand there and...

    Good deal on jackets, pay is good

    I have been working at Canada Goose full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Opportunity to build processes from ground up - Working with ambitious and passionate young people - Unique global brand - Great bonus structure: beneficial as the company is growing rapidly so make more $$$$ - Decent perks: nice office, gym, 50% jacket discount

    Cons

    - Culture: it is a very toxic culture which is based on dishonesty, gossip and favouritism. feedback is inconsistent and very emotionally charged. Poor relationships amongst different departments. It is very fear driven. - Executive Team: All of them hate each other, meaning no one can agree on a long term growth strategy for the business. The initiatives change frequently, often leaving lower level employees confused...

    Advice to Management

    This company has an AMAZING amount of growth potential, but the toxic culture will burn the organization down. Recognize that change is happening fast, but understand how to rebuild the culture to support people to grow.

    I worked at Canada Goose full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free breakfast and 50% discount for jacket, still expensive but better than full price. There is couple great VP and Chief.

    Cons

    So much politics and game blam. Mngrs they acting they love Canada goose but the truth they didn’t care for the company as long as they can find somebody to blame for their mistakes. A lot of lies and unfair environment, they play team games, they knew how to make thing happen, they don’t listen to you and if you didn’t agree for whatever they do then you are in trouble. Stay away if you have self respect. The great comments...

    Advice to Management

    Clean the junk in your company, so many people became managers and directors just because they were with this company 6 or 10 years. That time Canada Goose wasn’t big that much, and to be able to grow and be a leading company you need to replace the junk with talented leaders who is talented who worked before in competitive world class companies.

    I have been working at Canada Goose full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Top talent will be rewarded with above average compensation. Good bonus structure. Ability to buy jackets at a discount (though you can only order once a year for the following year). Casual dress code. Good employee benefits including newly added pension plan. Motivated workforce.

    Cons

    Lacks work-life balance depending on department. Location makes it tough to commute (not go train accessible and not on the subway line). May be limited growth opportunities also depending on department.

    Advice to Management

    Flex hours would be great in order to counteract the awful commutes - perhaps encourage employees to work from home once a week or when viable.
