    I have been working at Aritzia full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexable hours. Easy work and everyone is hardworking & has a good time Management

    Cons

    They have all kinds of reasons why what they are doing is not unusual or cruel and rotten. It's not their fault. But by the time you have put in 90 days--after your initial training days

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate your vision of the future and how everyone on the company plays a role

    Pros

    A great community of supportive staff members to help you achieve your sales goals and clothing discount, duh!

    Cons

    Without a strong personality, it is easy to get discouraged if your sales are not as high as others because you lose out on hours.

    I have been working at Aritzia

    Pros

    Have had the pleasure to work with some inspiring people with a similar work ethic to my own. Have made every lasting friendships. Have learned some skills that would translate at other jobs.

    Cons

    The culture is horrific. Forced to rate staff with a number scale based on appearance. Upper management does not listen to staff. Communication is all over the place. Nothing is ever good enough. Unfair promotion and wages, a friend of mine was offered a giant salary (almost double my own) with no experience or tenure; purely based on what she looked like. Gross!

    Advice to Management

    No advice as you wouldn’t listen anyways!
