I worked at Fred Segal full-time (More than 5 years)
Positive friendly co workers. Great employee discounts. Extremely well run and organized. A lot of room to move up, and the management is very helpful
The hours are very long, and the breaks are short. You need to be on your feet for up to 8 hours a day
Advice to Management
Offer incentives for bigger sales such as commission. Let employees have longer breaks so they don't get worn out by the end of their shift. Schedule more people so that no one feels overwhelmed
The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fred Segal (Beverly Hills, CA) in August 2010.
Took forever for Manager to get a hold of Regional Manager and call in for an interview. Said I would be called in a few days took over a week an a half only to tell me that he would schedule and second round in a couple of weeks. Very disorganized. At the second round I was kept waiting for over an hour. Now, I understand people are busy but it is a huge example of the disorganization up top. The position I was applying for needed to be filled for over 6 weeks and they were very desperate and the office still couldnt get it together. I know from the inside that I was the only applicant for the position so it wasn't a case of getting the best person for the job. Very disorganized and unprofessional.
