Great benefits, no room for advancement
Sales Consultant (Ancien employé) – Vancouver, BC – 21 juillet 2018
I absolutely loved working at Holt Renfrew, we had great benefits and discounts, and most people I worked with were friendly. Even though it is a competitive sales environment, people are polite to one another, and there is rarely any conflict between co-workers (at least within the accessory department) There are also some rules to what one can and cannot sell, so the sales are fairly distributed among the employees.
There is unfortunately not a lot of room to grow when you're a Sales Consultant. Moving between departments, or moving to an independent boutique may be an option; but it is definitely not what I'd consider an advancement.
There is also very little work/life balance, as some clients can only be available on certain days, you may need to show up at work for the sale on your day-off.
Great benefits, discount, and commission
