MERCHANDISING MANAGER (Ancien employé) – Oshawa, ON – 18 juillet 2019
Worked in a management role for Reitmans, liked it at first then quickly became overworked and underpaid. I went over managements head as they were not helping with some workplace concerns I had and event head office didn't care. I asked for help multiple times, for extra staff to finish some time-sensitive matters and was declined. Worked myself so hard to get the work done on the time scale they wanted I ended up blowing out my shoulder and sustained a workplace injury the same day due to the safety cuts they made to get the work done faster.
No consideration for the part-time staff either as you have to wear Reitmans brand clothing to work. These employees would only get 3 hours a week and each paycheque had to basically spend the whole thing to keep up to date on clothing (we have new collections come in every 2 weeks and once something went on sale you could not wear it anymore, as a customer could see it and want it but we no longer carry it)
Good team to work with in store but not upper management
Sales Associate/Key Holder (Ancien employé) – Grande Prairie, AB – 6 septembre 2019
It was a good team to work with but upper management was very rude about keeping up to sale targets. We would also be stressed as soon as we heard our phone ring after a period had gone by that we had not hit our target because we would get rung out especially the store manager at the time.
