I worked at Esprit full-timeRecommendsNegative OutlookRecommendsNegative Outlook
Modern office, great mid-level management, loved my team so they really did focus on hiring people that were a good fit for the office environment. Management was eager to help internal employees move up with in the business.
As with many global brands, it was very difficult managing the North American business when give direction by a corporate team in Germany -- very different styles worked and didn't work in the various regions of the world but with one line to select from, buying and merchandising appropriately for your country was difficult. Strict travel rules and PTO rules.
Advice to Management
The management in the North American office was great. It just seemed there was a disconnect between the global headquarters and the regional offices in terms of product assortment that would ultimately be successful outside of Germany. A bit more freedom in the area of product and style recommendations would have been ideal.

Walk in and filled out application with the store manager. They reviewed it and then called me a few days later. Went to a group interview then and 1 on 1 interview and got hired the next day via phone call.
