    I worked at kate spade part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The manager was amazing! So nice and very encouraging, she would even bring in snacks to the back room. I loved everyone that I worked with.

    Cons

    As a seasonal, after new years, I rarely got scheduled. Things slowed down quite a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing great!

    Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sunrise, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at kate spade (Sunrise, FL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Group interview with two other candidates they were not offering commission for seasonal sales candidates and rate was barely above minimum wage--I declined offer. They said $10.75 is their maximum for sales. In my experience this is very low for what I thought was a higher end store. They want you to work long hours and holidays like Thanksgiving for $10/hr. Ridiculous.
