I worked at Esprit Holdings part-time for less than a yearPros
This is the rating for the Esprit store in NYC (not sure if it's still there anymore). Work environment was pleasant and professional compared to other retail experiences. Pay was also a little above average in comparison to other sales associate positions at this time. Managers were professional and pleasant to work with. Hours were fair.Cons
A lot of pressure to help everyone in the store even when they do not want help.
Store can get very messy at times and understaffed on certain days.
Commission bonuses- could be bad or good.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Trust that your employees have already asked customers if they need help when they say they did, not all customers need help, some just want to be left alone.RecommendsNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
The process took a day - interviewed at Esprit Holdings in June 2011.Interview Details
Met with two separate people, the group head and the woman I would actually be the assistant to. The Group Head was very professional, asked typical questions. This part went fine, we talked for about half an hour. The woman I was to assist spent an hour and a half with me, in which I probably only spoke for 20-30 minutes. Something about me clearly bothered her, because she kept going on and on about how great she is at her job, as if trying to prove something to me. She also called me out on wearing heels 2-3 times in a very condescending tone. I'm sorry, it's an interview, aren't you supposed to wear heels?? Especially when interviewing for a fashion company? They weren't outlandish either, they were nude pumps...Was relieved I did not get an offer, it would not have worked out well for me to work directly with this awful woman.No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
