I do.

Not saying it's a bad thing, really. I liked it when they asked me about my Antiks...
I do too!

Wow, I didn't realize there would be so many replies. I wonder why it's so hard to get the straight truth regarding working at this place! I've asked at other forums and I get the same responses: comments on their customer service and i heard this, i heard that's. No one knows the fact. Not trying to sound bitchy, more just that I find it really interesting since it seems to only be Aritzia. I've asked about other companies and usually get a consistent story but from here, other forums, and offline friends everyone's telling me something different about this one company. Hmm.

I think the stress would be marking someone for 'territory' before the other girls... I've seen two sales reps get into heated tension because one claimed she helped my friend first before the other.

I don't think the atmosphere is really that bad. I used to work there for seasonal (Winter)- so I wasn't in sales... I did the actual 'hard' work :P Working with the girls that I did, and just walking in different Aritzias (in the Lower Mainland), I've never really encountered the whole "snotty" attitude- the sales people cannot be stuck up if they're trying to make sales; I generally find them really helpful and sweet.
What kind of work did you do for them when you worked during Christmas? Did you get paid the same amount as the sales girls AND get the same discounts?

This may be off topic but does anyone know if Aritzia has discounts on jeans on boxing day or the week after christmas?

no no there wasn't a special deal or anything. when i mean regular customer, i mean just whomever walks in and buys their clothes. it was in the beginning of january when they're just getting rid of last season's merchandise. it was the last one they had, and luckily in my size.

if you want those special-mailed coupons that give you a heads-up/discount on certain days, you have to register your name under their customer profile and buy quite a bit from them on a regular basis. they do all that stuff for free. basically, they wanna see loyalty, clientele.

^ yup, i love when they give out those coupons!! i used to shop there wayyy too much but now i barely go there since my uni town doenst have one
post #34 of 36

ya i work there.

discount is 40

$13/hr

All up side. Sure, caddy girls but you will get good ones and bad ones everywhere.

i work hard but enjoy the perks.

Not commission but hrly/sales quotos.

Downside: have to stay after closing until entire store is cleaned up and encouraged to clock out prior to the cleaning so we don't decrease our sales per hour totals. Hmmm, i'm not up for cleaning for free! Up to this point i opt to clock out when i'm d0one work. If they penalize me for this (my sales per hour would decrease given I'm cleaning up after store closing so i'm not selling) then i will

go from there. But really owners and management should be making provisions for cleaning/inventory etc.

Ugh I love the clothes but its so expensive. I scored an interview at the Square One location but the manager was such bitchy little prick. I walked in and asked for the manager. She came out and gave me the fakest smile ever. She took me to the lounge section of the store and told me to wait a while and that she had some business to take care of. I waited EXACTLY 45 mins for her to finish her "business" but she was in front of me the whole time, checking her phone, texting, and chatting with her co-workers. She finally remembered me and was like "omg I totally forgot about you sorry for making you wait" and I disregarded it. The questions she asked me were the standard interview questions (Name a time you failed at something, tell me about a time you handled a difficult customer, etc.) She was just sarcastic, rude, ditzy, and it seemed she could care less about a hard workerĀ . Its not worth it at all, trust me.

Was the office at Forest Hill a house? Was it sketchy?
