    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 are treated well, CG give management budget to by bagels, treats, snacks for staff room and anything you asked management to better the work place is considered or immediately added or changed. The store is beautiful and smells great! Sometimes head office sets games where you need to complete some task or sells items “bingo style” and more and you can win free things like 50$ h & m gift cards, google home, free in store accessories (125$-395$) which was pretty cool! Initiative is respected and taken seriously if the idea or suggestion is reasonable. Over all Canada Goose is a good place to land! Pay is over 16$ and hour and up to 18-21$h , thats really good for a retail job. Not counting all benefits like dental ect... and you can invest in the company and they match your contribution up to 50% thats amazing! The coworkers and work vibe between coworkers was AMAZING!! Never seen anything like it.

    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$-15,000$ sometimes that’s actually easy but more then often very hard. Its a lot of work and dedication if you do your job the way your suppose to “ the whole customer experience “ you are also watch closely on your customer review “nps” . They say 40h but that really 30h because they always write your finishing at 10-11h but your out of the store by 9h thats just there in case they need you. That was a bust! All managers and so often on there phone it’s ridiculous... they just stand there and watch everyone work and sometimes not to have to do anything they send you to the next manager and so on all the way up to the store manager who then has to help or anwser. Store manager was 50/50 she was either extremely nice or extremely savage on you... she was however very busy. The uniform is a Vest lended to you by CG but its your after 3months of work but that fair, but the vest is the most ugly piece in the store and retails for 450$ they should change that and its so fragile haft the staff had either rip theirs or damaged them.... not really helping the brands imagine if you ask me.... they should change the uniform. Employe need to wear black shoes and have no cellphone on them.... but manager can and there again always on there “ work” phone 🙄 dis not seem professional at all. You also needed to be careful on which manager to trust... but that’s everywhere..

    Advice to Management

    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 be on the “look out” that was bs. Be nice or nicer! Stop being dramatic!

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

    Pros

    - ok discount - product sells itself - store closes early

    Cons

    -its easy to get hired here, not the best screening process -the management is half good, half really really bad -managers talk behind eachothers backs about who they think will get fired -managers more obsessed with themselves than their work -super slow and boring in the spring/summer

    Advice to Management

    you know how sketchy and fake you are, time to turn that around and start acting professional if you want to keep your jobs and for employees to stay.
