hello fp girl.
i have been checking these posts on a daily basis, beginning last year when i discovered the very first entry. you do such a lovely job. i enjoy getting the inside scoop on all of the free people happenings, especially the design processes you post (seeing workspaces, video development, materials….). I have such a great admiration for the aesthetic of the free people stores and design process that you capture. i’d love to become a part of this process. are you aware of any areas in your department in need of design/art related work?
sincerely yours,
jamie karoses

Hi! A new store currently opened in downtown Seattle. I recently submitted an application to work as a sales associate online, but I was wondering, from an employees perspective, how challenging it will be. I turn eighteen in April and have little work experience, but would absolutely love to work in your store. Do you have an feedback or advice?

Hey Taylor!
Thanks for your comment! :)
I’m afraid you will have to wait until you are 18 years old to work for Free People – but don’t worry, you can always apply again in April!
As for working in the store, I’m afraid I have no knowledge of it – any fpgirls working in the stores want to help me out? :) Please post!
Thank you again for writing! Good luck! xox
