VISUAL ASSOCIATE

[Hourly Part-Time, reports to a store director]

There is something about the Visual Associate's craft that makes you stop + take notice. They have an innate ability to transform a table with stacks of pants into a work of art. They create window-envy. This is a proven fact; when we change our windows, all of our neighbors stop + stare, sometimes creating traffic jams inside the mall. Visual Associates execute merchandising direction flawlessly while customizing to maximize the potential of every location.
