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
Great company there was room for growth and lots of chances for personal development, wonderful focus on customer service and product knowledge. Only reason I left was poor wages found a higher paying company to work for
Great company culture
Their pay scale is off

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.
Time off for management
Terrible upper management and HR
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.
Occasional bonuses and competitions with prizes (though very small)
Poor communication, toxic culture, rude customers, higher-ups do not listen, you are completely disposable, selling poor quality clothing
I have a learned a lot at Reitmans, we had an amazing team and everyone is collaborative. With flexible work environement is easy to work from home too.
Advancement within the company is limited, especially when you are part of the management team. Upon starting with the company I was trained on very little things, everything I have learnt was from other stores and not from my Store Manager. Training is super limited but they have a bunch
There was a lot of pressure working here for customer service. It was a little bit extreme sometimes, I think that might have just been the manager though. Customer service is important to retail, but you also need to know how to step back and allow a customer to take their time. This was not the case here and customers were often scared off by how closely we were attending to them. Other than that, great place to work, lots of room for advancement. They value their employees, which is rare.
advancement, benefits, skill building
lots of pressure, not enough staff on duty
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.
Bonuses, good clothing allowance, good working conditions
None that I can think of
I really enjoyed my years at Reitmans, I was able to work for the company in two different cities and learned a lot about customer service and Ad set up as well as earning the chance to be a third key holder with added responsibilities.
Overall a good Canadian company however would like them to be more Canadian like offering military discounts. Advertising could be better Too focused on email and social media and therefore leaving the customer that have supported us for the start behind and in the dark.
Job enjoyment is highly dependent on store management and the environment they generate for customers and staff. Participating in all areas of the store keeps things interesting, and customers are usually friendly and receptive. Would recommend this job to those that can at least act extroverted, as the sales floor positions do require a significant level of pep for success.
