Pros

Great environment to work in with very supportive managers. An excellent place to launch a career in the fashion and/or retail field. Overall a really nice place to work!

Cons

The hours on the retail store side are irregular, and the work is surprisingly tiring. However that's to be expected with any retail job and you know that when you accept.

    Pros

    As an intern you are sent to corporate offices for workshops taught by Merchandising Managers and Buyers. Great insight, great networking (if you want it). My manager trained me very well on the sales floor, was very invested in making the most of my summer there.

    Cons

    I had friends that had managers that did not understand fully how to train their interns. Honestly, don't let this scare you away from the internship because you could have a great manager, but some, especially newer ones, just don't know what to do with an intern. You will have to tell them what you want to learn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train department managers better on how to utilize and teach their interns. The interns are the next great face of the company, don't screw it up.
