Sales Lead

August 2017 • Portland, OR

What I liked

Getting to work with Guests and interact with them while trying to ensure that they receive the best care. Working as a part of a team to achieve our goals, instead of working toward individual sales goal and competing against one another.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have had a chance to work with more of the girls. Were a small company and we only ever work in pairs and occasionally in threes.

Advice

People can be really hard to work with. Especially when you can't give them something they believe they deserve. It's okay to tell people no and to stand your ground, you are not less of a person because you didn't give the guest exactly what they asked for.

Stylist

December 2015 • Orlando, FL

What I liked

francesca's is a great company to work for, especially if you are interested in pursuing a career in the fashion or retail industry. Even stylists have the opportunity to learn about the actual business practices of the store

What I wish was different

I have had a great experience working for the company and wouldn't change anything.

Advice

Just be up front with your managers about what you're hoping to accomplish while working there. Most of them are more than willing to answer whatever questions you have and even help train you to move up in the company if that's what you want. The company is growing so they are constantly promoting employees who are interested.
