    I worked at Andrew Christian full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The HQ is close to train station. Kind owners.

    Cons

    Minimal pay, ZERO leadership, no work experience that can translate to furthering your career. Management simply doesn't know what they are doing. There's no experience that can be learned as there's no experienced leaders. ZERO company communication. The right hand has no idea what the left hand is doing. The only meetings are conducted by the insurance representatives.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the business and develop a staff. Don't just call the temp agency wasting years trying to find diamonds in the rough.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Andrew Christian (Glendale, CA (US)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and was then called up for an in person interview, no initial phone screen which was a bit weird. I showed up at their Glendale location and met with the Director of Operations for roughly 30 minutes. He really like my enthusiasm for brand marketing and said he'd give me a chance at proving my brand management skills by assigning me what he called homework and I had 2.5 days to complete the following:

    1. Write one story that could be posted on an underwear or fashion or gay blog...doesn't necessarily have to be about Andrew Christian just any interesting and engaging subject.
    2. Come up with 5 posts for the Andrew Christian Facebook that would get shared and liked the most.
    3. Create concepts for two, 3 minute "viral" videos. Include an outline of concept and a shot list for both videos.

    I never heard back from the Director of Operations after my submission. However, after about a month, I saw on their Facebook page that 3 of my 5 social media marketing ideas were being used. I promptly emailed the Director of Operations and also HR commenting on these ideas and if they were already in the pipeline prior to my interview. Again, no response.

    It's disgusting that companies use tactics such as this to manage their own brand instead of hiring an a full time individual responsible for marketing and brand management. My advice is that if you're dead set on working for this company, include a copyright clause on any "homework" they want you to submit as part of the supposed interview process. Or really, just stay away from companies like this in general who like to exploit the skill/creativity of others for their own use.
