      I worked at Aritzia full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      -Completely depends on the store, but coworkers CAN end up being your only reason to keep showing up. Lots of intelligent, kind, and funny women work here. -Lots of opportunity for growth IF you “drink the Kool-Aid”/are the exact type of person they are looking for.

      Cons

      -Although the 40% discount seems great at first, you quickly realize you still spend an insane portion of your paycheques on clothing as you are expected to be dressed in head to toe current season clothing. -Working your way up the ladder is next to impossible unless the ONE person in your district who signs off on promotions favours you. They do not value diversity in terms of personality or way of thinking. You must...

      Advice to Management

      -Offer vouchers to long-time employees, not just management and SSAs. There are many IAs and CAs that have been with the company for years and deserve it just as much. -Learn to celebrate different personalities and mentalities. Just because someone doesn’t fit into the “super bubbly, loud, always talking” archetype doesn’t mean they can’t be good leaders. People like working for real people that talk to them like friends,...

        Pros

        Good pay. Nice office. Good discount.

        Cons

        Toxic work culture. Poor management and CEO. if you want to enjoy your job, do not come to this company. Expect to be overworked and under appreciated

        Advice to Management

        Look at the turnover in your company and then look up toxic work culture. It equals aritzia. spend less time on how people work and more on improving their work life. Company can be so much better if they actually treated their employees well.
