    I have been working at Buffalo Exchange full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ongoing business literacy and management training. Thorough training on how to buy clothing from the public. Fun fashion culture and environment. Customers and employees are valued! Reduction of waste through buying and selling used clothing. A place you can feel good about working at and shopping. Great employee benefits; health insurance (even for part-timers), store discount and paid time off!

    Cons

    sometimes customers can get upset if their clothes are passed on.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Buffalo Exchange (Fullerton, CA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Apply online, came in for a quick trend "rack test" and to speak with the store manager - overall was pleasant.. If you are not excited by fashion or have any hobbies that include reading fashion blogs or magazines, this is not the job for you.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask you to name current trends etc - really want to know about you and your style - they are sure to hire people who are truly passionate about retail and fashion   Answer Question
