    I have been working at kate spade

    Pros

    They genuinely care about all internal and external customers. The product is among the best that you can find, and the designs are so unique and refreshing that you will not find anything like it elsewhere.

    Cons

    The only negative that I can say about working here is that you are constantly introduced to new, beautiful product that typically takes your paycheck!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company is very invested in its internal teams, so if you are lucky enough to be added to the ksny team, do not let it go! If you invest your time in the company, they will invest in you!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at kate spade.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my application on line and they never called me so I stopped in the store and dropped off my resume. They called 2 weeks later to set up an interview for the following week. The interview lasted an hour and the questions were very specific to sales and running a business with no fluff questions. The next day I was asked to interview again over the phone with a training manager. That interview lasted an hour. I did not hear anything for a week so I reached out and they asked me for another phone interview with the DM. After that interview it was another week before I was offered a part time position.

Women's items are sold under the kate spade name; men's products carry the jack spade moniker. Owned by Liz Claiborne, the firm distributes... More
