A progressive clothing company with a great premise
Sales Manager (Former Employee) – 345 7th Ave, New York, NY – June 9, 2017
American Apparel was a lovely company to be a part of. Day to day, understanding hourly sales, maintaining sales associate duties/ engagement, and relaying all information to district and regional management was key to a successful day. With working for American Apparel for almost 4 years, I learned an abundance from the retail and clothing industry, especially from American Apparel's standpoint being an vertically integrated, 'made in the USA', fair wage company. From its contributions to LGBT community and oversea's involvement with Sierra Leone, to collaborations with up and coming visual artists-- American Apparel had a large input in the clothing industry. Employees from store to store had unique attributes/ understandings to customers and their needs. Knowing you are selling clothing that contributes to something more was what had me stay a part of its team.
Flexible work times for young employees, open to uniqueness both in employees and customers
Basic, brandless clothing styles sold for a high price (but for a reason!)
