    Pros

    I love the environment at kate spade. Everyone for the most part is happy and loves the brand. Although it's a big company, it feels small because you get to meet and know people from corporate all the time. They also treat their employees very well (benefits, good discounts, food/treats on holidays).

    Cons

    Making future plans is kind of difficult since your schedule is never the same week to week.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at kate spade (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Luckily my interviewer really liked me and wanted me to come back in a few hours so the head manager could meet me. From there she introduced me to all of management and later she called me offering me a position on the team.

kate spade's story is one of simplicity, like the bags it sells, and expansion. The company, begun in 1993 by designer Kate Spade and her husband Andy to make kate spade handbags, has since lent its uncomplicated design for the manufacture of stationery, various functional bags (think diaper bags), and licensed products -- with lines of homewares (sheets, tabletop items, and wallpaper), as well as beauty items, eyewear, and shoes.
