Associate discount and free products are great. Work life balance is possible here. There are opportunities to move to other depts and categories. Management strives to hire and promote from within. That's said, it takes time to move up. This is a relationship based company and building relationships is important.Casual work Environment. Generally young hip group of people in individual contributor positions. Fashion and or beauty background is a must. Work hard play hard.
