    Pros

    Le Chateau offers to help pay college tuition costs, provides medical insurance, great benefits, and offers bonuses, and commission. It pays really well, and if you have experience in such a role, you will definitely fit right in. It also holds staff meetings to ensure all employees are kept updated on all fashion trends. Management team has excellent structure, and know what they are doing. It is relatively easy to move up in the company.

    Cons

    I'm not sure if this is a con, but sometimes the work assigned can be repetitive; however, it makes for a fun really fun work environment because of the amazing staff it has on board. Other than that, I have no further cons to report.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent leadership!

    I worked at Le Château part-time

    Pros

    The discount was prettt good

    Cons

    The store manager is extremely biased. She has her favourite girls and if you're not one of them you're not gonna do well. The on call system is the worst, you have to call an hour before your shift and even if it takes you more than an hour to get to work they won't let you call a little earlier.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees equal, don't make it so obvious when you don't like someone. Don't get involved in people's personal lives.

    Pros

    -50% off discount on everything including sale price
    -Day hours and no overnight shift

    Cons

    -Strict dress code, implied that they prefer you dress in their product.
    -There was a noticeable clique in the girls who had been there longer, one girl who had been there longer than I was constantly left out and given only 3 hours a week
    -Little to no feedback given on performance
    -Manager and/or the person in charge of closing always took a long time and we'd often be leaving the store 10 minutes after we had clocked out only to have to take garbage down (another 5 minutes or so). Essentially still working after you had clocked out and not getting paid for it
    -Short shifts of sometimes 3 hours only

    Advice to Management

    -More frequent feedback should be given to employees so they know how they are doing
    -The clique atmosphere and gossip behind fellow employees back should not be tolerated
