Preferential Qualities: No formal education or experience proves necessary for fashion retail hire, in most cases. However, management positions may mandate high school and college completion and experience within a related field or supervisory role. Customer service skills, sales driven initiatives, and personable attitudes often suit applicants well during consideration processes. Associates may work up to management roles from entry-level occupations.
General Responsibilities: All fashion retail employees must balance the goal of ensuring client retention while attempting to reach sales goals. In addition, associates must represent brands well, prove trustworthy in order to perform transactions, and demonstrate the capability of standing for extended periods of time. Weekend, evening, and holiday availability often prove necessary, as well.
Application Process: To gain employment, job hopefuls may discover application opportunities by browsing listings on company websites or stopping by store locations of desired hire. Wearing company specific brands or attire of similar styles may aid applicants during in-person visits to stores or interviews with hiring managers. Fashion retailers often require employees to represent the brand by wearing current attire, so taking initiative to display garb during meetings may prove favorable. Upon hire, employees may gain access to clothing discounts so required working attire becomes more affordable.
