Sales Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 15, 2017
Handled various currency transactions Maintained store appearance and general cleanliness of work area. Checked new shipments and restocked shelves. It wasn't that friendly of an environment to work considering the manager's were always looking out for their own culture. Learned good customer service. The hardest part was working with some of the staff that were not friendly and professional. The most enjoyable part was learning great fashion and the new trendy things.
Stylist (Former Employee) – new yoe – February 13, 2017
French Connection was a great workplace to start a career in retailing. The management and staff were welcoming and willing to assist in any way possible, however the compensation was very poor and there were no monetary rewards for meeting sales quotas.
In French Connection I was able to work with the most amazing people in store. The company itself is not very well organized and there is a huge lack of communication between Head Office, the stores, Area Managers and Visual Merchandisers.
Inventory / Customer Service (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 20, 2017
There was no advancement in ranks while working there for almost 3 years. No benefits, no health insurance, no sick/vacation days given. I was in charge of keeping and organizing the stock room. It was not a bad place to work in.
Wholesale Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 8, 2017
A typical workday involved completing style selling and best sellers for various accounts, and sending samples or checking samples back in. If there were appointments with buyers, I would pull samples and organize them in the showroom. I became extremely proficient with Microsoft Excel, as that was the main program used to track style selling. My supervisor was hardworking, organized and patient when it came to teaching me new things; she always made sure I was busy.

Responsible for sales and assistance in sales floor. Organizing store for opening and closing. Assisting customers in order to improve their experience at the store. Count the daily income at the end of the day, keep records and put money in the safe. Supervise employees and direct them with specific tasks.
When i worked there, it was fun the energy was high and the brand was desirable. I witnessed it burn down to the ground. All in all, i learned a great deal form the area manager who made me who i was today and great friendships that i still have today. It was fun to work there while it lasted.

Sales Associate (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA 70130 – February 29, 2016
I love working at French Connection. It has really gave me a lot of customer service experience. My co-workers are all wonderful people and we all get along very well. The hardest part of the job is finding things to do in our down time. In this store my co-workers and I find a lot of down time when there are not people shopping in the store. We try to keep ourselves busy with cleaning and steaming. The most enjoyable part is talking with the many different type of people who come into the store to shop. As a psychology major I love talking to people and hearing their stories. This job gave me the opportunity to talk with many different types of people and help them find the perfect outfits.
Sales associate (Current Employee) – New York, NY – July 23, 2015
Working at French Connection great because of our high cliental. The coworker and mangers make it interesting by setting up small contest to promote and encourage the volume of sales. While working at French Connection I've managed to receive three " Club Connect cards " which is when you make a thousand dollars on one transactions. While at French Connection I've learned so much and gain so much experience on the do's and don't about sales. I love my job but I'm ready for more.

We were always the first to be in the store. Once settle in we start sweeping then mop the floor. After that work in the stockroom then take in shipment once done there will be time the stock associates would cover the front door or cover a lunch break.
