Secrets to impressing their recruiters
We are looking for individuals who want to build their careers at an organization that believes in promoting from within, who have a passion for retail and who are interested in working for an organization where growth will be the focus for the next five to 10 years. Our advice to candidates is to get to know our business from the ground up -- to think about joining our company at the store level so they can learn first-hand about what our customers are looking for from us. -- Andrea Lauren, VP Talent Management
