Retail Stores

Make fashion everyone's playground

You are energetic, trendy and have a passion for life. You have a take–charge attitude, believe that a new outfit can change someone’s day and think it would be fun to offer fashion advice and styling tips.

As a Part–Time Sales Associate, you’ll be the first face that our customers see when they walk in. You’ll help them find their style. You’ll learn the tricks of the retail trade and be involved in events, product and customer service. And you’ll have the potential to advance into management, if you desire.
