    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    friendly environment, hires with minimal experience so good place to get a start in the fashion industry. employee discount, staff bbqs in the summer

    Cons

    Poor management.
    Company is not evolving because their methods are archaic compared to other successful companies in the industry
    HR needs to be replaced. Passive- aggressive and works solely for the interest of upper management, not the employees. Does not offer support.
    Company is cheap with salary but has heavy workloads
    Often collapses multiple roles into one to avoid hiring
    Poor benefits
    Very strict about lunch hour - needs to be between 12-1pm or else the time is lost (even if you worked into your lunch hour)

    Advice to Management

    Allow strong employees to grow with you and let them contribute to your success
    Change the buyers that have been their for decades if the category is not growing
    Adapt to the needs of the industry
    Replace your HR representative - there have been a lot of bad choices with hiring. it is inefficient to train incompetent individuals for roles that require competence

    Pros

    - get to work with people in a fun way
    - sometimes flexible with hours
    - most of my co-workers were nice and friendly

    Cons

    - pay stinks
    - some management was good, some not-so-good
    - unsure of the qualifications of senior management (very possibly had qualifications/experience, I saw sr. management so little though)
    - I went to quit and the manager "happened" to be thinking about giving me a raise and position as shift leader (I only had to threaten to quit to get this though??)
    - stayed til twenty to midnight one night trying to clean the store to a reasonable amount of cleanliness (we were way understaffed that evening) unsuccessfully - we left it a mess because we couldn't clean anymore - we were exhausted!
    - mostly all-women staff - working with a mix of women and men, I have found, creates a much more pleasant work environment.

    Advice to Management

    - talk to staff at staff level.
    - if you pay people more, you will get more out of them.
    - come up with behaviors for sales associates that work for them with good incentives to work for them.
    - you need more incentive to stay with you guys.

    Current Employee - Salesperson in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    Pros

    Nice team, fast-paced and never boring, discounts, many locations across Canada, large company with potential for advancement in the fashion world

    Cons

    Poor organization, retail customers tend to be very rude, discount is only 20%, expect a lot of work for minimum wage salary

    Advice to Management

    Be organized, respect your employees, stop being the main cause of gossip and rumours that plague the company
