    Keep inspiring people to step outdid the box and ask questions

    "Cliquey, Judgemental, Compensation Too Low"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Personal Shopper Assistant 
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Holt Renfrew full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Employee discount - Hours were fairly easy

    Cons

    - Felt like working in cliquey environment where you were dismissed for bigger opportunities if management decided they didn't like you - The compensation was extremely low and hours though easy at times were not dependable for a full-time role - I barely ever took a break when working because they were not enforced by management and you never knew when to leave - Generally the environment made you feel judged

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to your team, envolve beyond shouting out people on social media, and show that you genuinely care about your department. Enforce breaks, and regulate hours to be more steady.
