Avis d'employé sur Reitmans
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!

Great team energy, fun customers, good first retail job, opportunity to move up in ranks
Slow to start hiring process (with no communication), unrealistic expectations
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.
Most girls were great to work with
I have been at Reitman's for about 3 years and its been like a family. The management is very understandable and fair. Their dressing code is business casual and you have to wear something that belongs to the company which is understandable. The products of this brand is very classic and chic. the prices are reasonable and the employee discount is amazing. During the holidays and busy days it is a very fast paced environment where you have to learn to deal quick with customers and employees.
