    I have been working at Intermix full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing exposure to contemporary and established fashion brands. Get to work with interesting clientele if you're based in a metropolitan area, and you really learn the ins and outs of true styling. I learned many creative skills here. Commission structure is great, good hourly pay/salary, fantastic benefits, and BEAUTIFUL product. If you like you're coworkers, it can be a really fun and exciting place to work, and a great place to begin a career in fashion and styling. An impressive name on your resume. Great way to build a network and meet influencers, publishers, and designers. Overall good experience.

    Cons

    I understand what the company is going for with their culture but they are not quite there yet. Upper management DOES NOT care about those working in the field, and when they pretend they do, it's just for a photo op... we are the people that make business happen. Store leaders ARE NOT given the proper tools to train and strategize, and they arent trained well themselves, which isn't their fault. This leads to a domino effect of negative energy, unnecessary stress and shifted blame. Corporate individuals can really suck the life out of the room too. Not all, but 80% of them. Nasty, uninspired and elitist attitude, and I'm quite frankly not even sure how they were qualified for these jobs. They pretend to care about your ideas and your passion on paper, but all they do is ignore and stifle anybody who expresses interest in moving up with the company or anybody who wants to learn and grow. They are SHAMELESSLY rude and condescending to retail level workers. There are no incentives for anyone with talent or passion or anyone who wants to grow with the company. They make no effort to keep you around or train you. Probably why the employee turnover is so high.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know us and get to know your demographics!!! Listen to our ideas. We know your customer better than you do. Stop placing such an emphasis on $$$ and stop turning people into dollar signs. Customers can smell that. Train your management correctly and give your associates the proper tools and positive energy to TRULY style clients. Corporate people; get to know the field workers. Drop the stuffy attitude when you come visit. It's not inspiring or fun to be around, and we don't find it intimidating.

    I worked at Intermix full-time

    Pros

    Got to work alone most of the time. Bought by Gap Inc a number of years ago so the benefits are better now.

    Cons

    Coworkers don't care about accurate inventory or about being gentle with the product so that we don't have to damage out a $400.00 sweater. They just want their commission check. Snarky commission based environment.

    I worked at Intermix full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Intermix is a fun environment, with many great leaders to guide you on your career path. Cross training in different areas with in the store experience DOR training will get you on a fast track for advancement.

    Big exposure to multi brand vendors for both established and new designers. Definitely a place to build your network and client books.

    Exciting new product comes in weekly . A talented creative team keeps everyone inspired and the window styling is on point!

    Intermix and Gap Inc is an inclusive company. They embrace diversity, really care about their employees, and provide many support for personal needs. I have only good things to say about my tenure at Intermix.

    Cons

    Career growth from the field to HQ is not easy. So don’t expect to come into the store as a sales associate and become a buyer.

    Advancement can take time, be serious and patient. Those employees that put in the time and effort will see the benefits.

    Employee discount and designer exclusions could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your ears to the ground. The employees in the field have some excellent feedback and ideas for evolution and improvements to the ever changing retail climate, job market, and client experience.

    I worked at Intermix part-time

    Pros

    Their commission system is amazing--it really allows you to make more $ by working hard. Salary raises and promotions come often if you're making a lot of sales.

    Cons

    There is a lot of competition between stylists.
