Mission: To exceed the client's expectations in terms of customer service, experience and garment fit and quality. BALANI aim to develop a longstanding relationship and become the client's personal clothier of choice and trusted fashion advisor.
I worked at Balani full-time
Flexibility, growth, earning potential, small enough to still feel appreciated, passionate executive leaders, team atmosphere, emphasis on constant learning, several leaders within the company all willing to share best practices. Can't say enough good about the CEO, and the president is well liked and accessible, excellent opportunity to meet people in the luxury space. Oh, and getting to wear fancy clothing never sucks!
Typical growing pains associated with small companies, but if you embrace that environment, and you want to learn how to essentially build and run your own book of business, they have great systems and support in place. This job will be what you make of it. Balani provides the assets you need to be successful.
Advice to Management
Keep building - I expect continued growth and success
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Balani (Houston, TX) in June 2015.
I applied through indeed.com and was contacted fairly soon afterwards for a phone interview. The phone interview was about 30 minutes long. I was then invited to attend a face-to-face interview which lasted about 1 hour. I received an offer a short time after this interview. I know that the process is different for professional custom stylists.
I did not negotiate much as wanted to join the company and see how the position would be (I had never been in a role like this and was not really sure what it was possible to negotiate). I feel that management would be willing to negotiate.
