L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
When I started there in 2017 the management and staff were great to work with. The best part if the job was the clientele. I worked for the now defunct Addition Elle, very unique work atmosphere. Positive and all inclusive. Sadly in 2018 changes were made to management and the atmosphere became stale. Orders from head office placed more emphasis on cost efficiency and less on customer service.

Points positifs

Flexible hours

Points négatifs

Addition Elle is gone

Company with no morals

Terrible place to work, especially after the restructuring. District manager now has an entire province to look after and is not available. She is very set in her ways and if you question her you will be punished. Very little payroll hours and lots of work to do. Visual flips every 2-3 weeks is ridiculous when you are not given extra hours to complete. Company loves to let people go for no reason and just pay you severance. I’ve seen it done to 2 managers and then it happened to me. Stay away and look for a career with a more rewarding company.

Points positifs

Time off for management

Points négatifs

Terrible upper management and HR

Worst company to work for

Do not work for this company, the only good benefit is the 50%discount on regular priced items,the clothes itself are expensive and you are expected to buy and afford that when you get paid minimum wage and only 10 hours or less a week for a sales associate

Very fun .iendly atmosphere to work in

Good training program, good benefits, great head office team. Visitors from head office very friendly, and always made you feel very comfortable, and gave good feedback on your store. Lots of opportunity for advancement from within the Company. Employees come first attitude, Typical work day was making sure your store was visually ready for business, customers came first attitude. At Xmas they would allot a dollar amount to buy a tray of cold cuts, sandwiches, etc for Boxing, as they knew it was difficult in the Food Court to get your food in a timely manner.

Points positifs

Bonuses, good clothing allowance, good working conditions

Points négatifs

None that I can think of

Do not recommend at all

When you have a manager who won’t work with you run to a different company. The current manager at white oaks is a power tripper who talks behind all the staffs backs and smiles to their face. She has ensured all her “friends” can get their hours and when there is a sale she lets her inner circle including her big family pick and stash before the store opens very unprofessional and she should not be in this position. Do not apply to this location unless you want to be talked about and treated poorly. Her friends are scared to speak up so watch her continue this terrible behaviour to the few staff who are honest and want to work. Hopefully the previous manager returns from her mat leave and this lady gets called out on her many atrocities.

Points positifs

You do get a staff discount

Points négatifs

Slow stores

They are not busy at all- and hours are based directly on what your sales are that week. If sales are low expect your shifts to be cancelled. As part of the management team expect to be working long hours all alone- and for unrealistic expectations put on you. You need to work way more than your 40 hours to get your work done. You are expected to wear reitmans clothes while on shift but they do not provide you with an allowance to buy any.

No work for two weeks!!!! Not worth it!

From having no work for two whole weeks, the hours are terrible, the pay is also terrible. All of the hours bascially go to people in management, the employees get the left over in hours which is one shift a week or worse no work for two weeks. As long the people in management have work/hours they dont't really care about their employees. You will get the crappiest hours, you will get the longest shifts just because you perform better than the other employees. Not to mention there is an extreme amount of favouritism that goes on. People who have worked in the same job for 8 or more years and do less work than someone who has been there for less than a year and who actually does their job, and then some, often get favoured. The management is so disorganized, they have no idea of what they're doing. They can't schedule people right, you say one thing they do opposite of what you say. You give them your availability, they schedule you the days you can't work. ( Nobody in management listens to you.) People in management also tell you they will give you more hours, but they never do. You basically stand around doing nothing all day or fold the same clothes over and over again. You show up for a four shift just so the people in management can have all their breaks. They usually stand at the computer all day looking at the different stores, you never feel like you are good enough for people in management. You get told to do things you've already done, but do it anyways. The discount isn't even worth it, because the clothes are still expensive and fall apart. This isn't for -

Excellent Place to work

I spent almost 6 years with Reitmans and if it wasn't for me Relocating where there was no store for me to transfer to I would still be with them now,

I enjoyed the team work of the staff.

I enjoyed working at REITMAN'S It was a change of pace from being in a school environment. A typical evening varied from very busy to slow. I learned how to listen to customers, to help them find what they were looking for. The hardest part of the job was adapting to new management. I really enjoyed the people I worked with and the atmosphere of the smaller retail outlet

Points positifs

The wages were competitive and the price discounts were awesome

Points négatifs

You were required to wear current merchandise. This meant new clothes every 6 - 10 weeks

Productive and fun atmosphere to work in,

Reitmans is a great place to build experience, the training provided is quite good. I enjoy working here, I just have no opportunity to advance, and that is ultimately my goal.

Points positifs

Salary

Points négatifs

Not team focused

Mngt is not trained to deal with their employees on a professional manner

Reitman's should have a better training for their management team as they do not deal with any situations that arise with employees, they prefer to not deal with it hoping it clears itself up.

Points positifs

can not think of any

Points négatifs

schedule changes and employee's are NOT notified of change

I loved this job

The only reason I quit was because I moved and they didn't have my position available in my new town. I was a visual merchandiser and I learned so much and was ready to learn more.

Points positifs

Amazing managers, really great coworkers, lots to learn and do.

Points négatifs

retail doesn't pay enough.

Great part-time job

I love working here and it has allowed me to grow as an individual and prepare me for the workforce when finding a job in my field now that I am done university.

Really great job

Work is fun but things can happen that cause problems to rise. It is definitely a great company to work for but at every place, especially retail, there is inconsistency that can become troublesome

Points positifs

Points négatifs

Poor Onboarding, Little Direction Given

They want you to immediately start and hit the ground running without providing any real groundwork to stand on. It was like they expected you to be a perfectionist at every aspect before you even receive any training. Early into working I was told that high turnover was a good thing as if they're expecting most applicants to fail quickly just to find another candidate. During my time here I wasn't even given their their team leadership training "handbook" until 3 weeks after hired just due to disorganization and mismanagement of their onboarding process which they had already decided that I wasn't a good enough fit into their social circle. Working here outside of the constant barrage of misguided directions given by my store manager wasn't too bad the client base was great and the part-timers were "nice enough" even during high traffic and busy times it really didn't feel overwhelming. They really do have a major focus on customer service but have an extreme lack of focus on employee support and building them up. To conclude I do not recommend working for RW&CO as they really don't have the employee focus that anyone deserves.

Points positifs

Good client base, good discount

Points négatifs

Poor people management, Lack of direction given, Negative experience overall

Fun place to work

Enjoyed my time with Reitmans. The people were great and always willing to help other managers and co- workers. Lots of changes in the 3 years I was there not enough training hours for the changes.
