It is a decent retail job to acquire for part time work. The company is fun and are making quality clothes with many sales to keep up with. Staff is very friendly.

Save your time and energy

Great if you want no hours and empty promises (coming from an employee of 5 years) I stayed at this job throughout high school as it was my only option. It’s fine if you are wanting 1 3 hour shift a week

Questionable decisions higher up

I was hired by a manager who was leaving within a week of offering me the job. Despite being hired for a part-time position with full-time hours during busier periods, I was thrown into a full time job and was, WITHIN MY FIRST WEEK, the only member of management in the store before a new full-time manager arrived. The current store manager is wonderful but there are a lot of issues with the company higher up and the pay and benefits are terrible.

Points positifs

Nice Store Manager

Points négatifs

Serious company-wide issues

Great company, Great people!

Reitmans was one of the best places to work. The management was very fun and understanding, and your co workers turned into family. The overall job itself was fun and enjoyable, helping people find outfits that made them feel good with a good vibe to the store.

Points positifs

Great environment

Points négatifs

Long hours for inventory!

Amazing staff, wages, and overall environment

I felt welcome from the second i was hired. You are more than just a number there and even higher up management is caring and always comes to the store to check up. The company is great to work at, there are great benefits and discounts and everyone who works there is so kind, caring and are just overall great people!

Points positifs

Great discount, great wages, welcoming environment

Horrible management

One and only job I have ever been fired from . Treated very unfairly by new management and district manager. The only good thing about them is their discount on clothing , considering they make you wear up to date clothing (most of my pay cheque went there). I don’t talk Ill of any other place I’ve worked as I would never want to burn bridges , but this place was horrible.

Points positifs

Most girls were great to work with

Points négatifs

Everything else

Not good work environment

Horrible company to work for..Very tight knit group and no respect for employees. Expect to work alone and have to do a lot or you get in trouble or fired over the littlest mistake

Unpleasant, terrible communication, poor treatment....

This is one of the worst jobs I have had. It was incredibly surprising to hear from employees at other locations that they enjoyed it. The Courtenay location seems to be an outlier in that way. When I first started the current manager was stealing hours from employees and was only fired after far too many complaints were filed to HR. The new manager was the best I've had but the management of the company in general seemed very poor. The communication was lacking greatly. A typical day would be clocking in, helping customers, starting fitting rooms for them, taking out any new stock that had arrived, performing returns, tidying the store, and clocking out. The workplace culture while I was there was pretty toxic. Within the Courtenay store there were several employees that would complain about anyone, and everyone. Nobody would take fault for their actions and would push each other down whenever possible. Problems are often left for someone else to finally deal with them. Hardest part of the job is dealing with rude and angry customers, and trying to communicate with higher-ups. Overall, the day-to-day activities of helping customers and doing stock, etc. were fine. The management, toxic culture, and lack of care for your health and safety were the main reasons this job was incredibly stressful and unenjoyable. I would not recommend working at the Courtenay location unless several employee changes have been made.

Points positifs

Occasional bonuses and competitions with prizes (though very small)

Points négatifs

Poor communication, toxic culture, rude customers, higher-ups do not listen, you are completely disposable, selling poor quality clothing

team lead

Having worked there for 10 yrs i have a great relationship with customers and have bonded with many, knowing their personal needs. The hardest part of the job was to keep up with the constant changes and as well the pay

Fast Paced workplace, could use better management.

Pros -Good staff training -Paid on time -Employee discounts Cons -Management -Scheduling - Did not provide resources to problems I had good experiences with the company, and made long lasting friendships. It was difficult moving up in the company due to management training.

good management too much pressure for sales

I enjoyed mentoring, but the pressure to meet sales quotas took away from the experience. When you did make sales quotas, there was little recognition from the dsm, and continually made the culture less friendly.

Points positifs

50% discount

Points négatifs

sales quotas

Do not consider this employer

The worst place to consider a career. No room to move up, no guidance most of the time no management. Do no recognize hard work or long term employment. The worst 5 years of my working life.

Depends entirely on the store you work at

Working in the store was always fun and we had a great team from sales associates to our store manager. The biggest issue was higher management, who had unrealistic sales and dress code expectations. If we were projected to have high sales and did not meet them, the store team was blamed for it which was frustrating when traffic was down. To make up for the low sales, they really push for you to be in customers' faces and "sell sell sell!" to the point where it is uncomfortable and customers are visibly unhappy. They also require you to purchase and wear clothes from every single collection which adds up, especially if you do not get many hours as it is (they will cut your hours if sales are down that month). If you are part of the management team, you are guaranteed hours. If you are a sales associate, you could be working as little as 4 hours/week. I loved working because I was guaranteed hours every week, my boss did not actually make us buy clothes from every collection, and my coworkers were great. It really depends on the store!

Points positifs

Great team energy, fun customers, good first retail job, opportunity to move up in ranks

Points négatifs

Slow to start hiring process (with no communication), unrealistic expectations

Bad management

Managers always coming and going , upper management isn’t any better. Do t care about you or give you any support . Burn you out until you quit . It’s retail so the hours suck . Too high of expectations for the wage they actually pay you which isn’t that great either .

Points positifs


Points négatifs

Bad management, bad upper management

Reitmans is a hard company to work for. They expect a lot of out of their employees but aren't willing to help in any way. Aren't willing to promote people and wont give any feed back about why or how to improve.

Fun Clientele and experience

I overall enjoyed my team with Reitmans, working with customers and adorning the latest fashions to come in. The salary and management however was less than desirable which is what prompted my exit.

Points positifs

discount on clothes

Points négatifs

terrible management

Good for Part time.

Good place for a student to work part time. Working full time with any title above sales associate, your job is never safe. They move employees around from store to store, and if you do not wish to switch locations (maybe its too far from home) then you will never be offered another promotion through the company. Often when employees leave, they do not rush to fill the position and others are expected to do the extra work with out any extra compensation. This goes on for extended periods of time and wears out the staff mentally and physically. Unfortunately, they have a program that sets unrealistic sales goals (ei: Goal of $5000 for the day and you might only have 25 customers that day) and if you fail to reach the sales goal, you are reprimanded and in ongoing cases, let go. Their benefits are decent, however it can take a very long time to get them.

Not very friendly, staff and management are clique and most of your pay will go towards new product, not necessarily because you like the clothes or want the pieces but because it's mandated to own outfits from every season.

Handwork - for just customer service - you do more than what is expected

This place really takes a toll on you! If you are fashion associate - they will make you work way harder than you are actually getting paid. And sometime the management just doesn't work as had as the part=timers.

Points positifs

Good people - usually

Points négatifs

Not worth the pay
