    Pros

    To have income for a short, I mean SHORT, period of time while looking for gainful employment. They have a great library of prints for such a young division. The "Merchandiser/Stylist"/Sales person is quite enthusiastic and has a fairly decent eye.

    Cons

    The staff turn around for their very young print division is ridiculous. This results in a very dysfunctional "Design-System" with in the computers and the "portfolio". And the high turn over leads to much wasted time looking for designs, etc..The people who run this joke know nothing about the print area of Textiles, have no regard for cleanliness, order, or respect. They "appear" to be rather nice, say what they think you want to hear then do what ever the hell they want on a whim, ultimately sabotaging themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, be open, be grateful, be trust worthy, walk the talk, be realistic about timing. Do not string people along.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at SamTex (Los Angeles, CA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Sent a cover letter, resume, and referrals. I was called in the AM and asked to come in that very day. Met the Merchandiser/Stylist. Then he owner. When it came to discussing compensation, they were reasonable, to a point, cut me down nearly big time. I took it with the understanding it was a long term freelance gig that I could rely upon.

    Negotiation

    fairly easy.
