      Pros

      Everyone I have worked with and met so far in my first few months at Holts have been so warm, welcoming and supportive.

      Cons

      Onboarding during covid is a bit challenging but Holts has done a great job with the resources provided. I am still new to the company and have a lot to learn.

      DISGUSTING COMPANY

      Pros

      discount is OKAY its not even worth it anymore

      Cons

      ive been there for many years, the only thing this company has going for them is the discount, other than that prepare for a toxic work culture, disgusting corporate management team with unrealistic goals, never promote within, completely authoritarian, if you make sales targets you will only get a dime in raise provided you earned it. HORRIBLE COMPANY. RACIST. they claim "diversity" but all their upper management beyond store level are white people.

      Pros

      Great employee discount. Free products from education sessions. Store events which keeps it fun and interesting. Opportunity to move from brand to brand.

      Cons

      Management has favourites and is selective of who they give their attention to. The environment can be quite competitive and catty as it is commission based. Low foot traffic so it's hard to gain clients and build customer relationships.
