Hey crowd pleasers, have we got something special in store for you… Begin with great clothes. Add a quality second to none. Combine in a way that’s purely magical. Fold in a fun + engaging place. Now you’ve got a recipe that exceeds all expectations. Our Sales Associates are our brand ambassadors and at certain times of the year we expand this team to ensure we continue to provide a level of selling + service second to none. It’s busy, it’s action-packed+ it’s a chance for us to get to know each other. Are you up for the challenge?

Let’s begin with the things we value:

Passionate: believes in our brand, loves fashion + shows up with an intuitive feel for what’s right

Customer Hero: is customer-centric + relentless about exceeding expectations

Driven: can grow a business + constantly questions what can be done better

Innovative: can identify + articulate ideas to reinvent + evolve a business

Visionary: is market-aware, forward thinking + global

Leader: fosters collaboration + productivity

Okay, now let’s add role-specific competencies:

Approachable: is easy to talk to: warm, pleasant + gracious, a good listener 

Learner: is energized by discovering new things, connects the dots between learning experiences

Drive for Results: achieves objectives successfully, is bottom-line oriented + pushes self + others for results

Team Player: is open to (+ can be influenced by) associate contributions, values diversity + supports inclusion

Composure: is cool under pressure, not knocked off balance by the unexpected, does not show frustration when resisted

So far so good? Great, now on to those necessary requirements:

Diploma: high school or equivalent combo of education + experience

Birthdays: you need to have had at least 18 of these to work for us

Grammar School Basics: we expect you’ve mastered these: a command of reading, writing + speaking with confidence

Flexible: there when needed: weekends, holidays, overnights

Fashion Savvy: turned on by creating head to toe looks that look great + reinforce our brand

Tech Savvy: facile with smartphones, apps + other gizmos

Physical: can lift, carry or move at least 40 lbs./18 kilos + we’re going to max out your fitbit (with lots of walking around)

Got it all? Excellent, let’s chat… sometimes a seasonal gig can turn into something more permanent.
