When I stumbled across Stitch Fix last year, I was over the moon. I love it when companies offer work at home opportunities but I especially love to see companies offering creative and artsy home based jobs and what's more, this particular company is offering this position at an entry level.
That means that you have to be at least 18 years of age and have some customer service experience, whether it be online or in retail.
I can venture to say that this opens this opportunity up to many.
In fact, I was very happy to share the details of this job lead with many of the college age daughters of friends that I have, many of whom were super excited to pursue this.
Let's get a little background info on this company:
Stitch Fix offers online personal stylists to customers .
As a customer, you will fill out a style questionnaire and can even link your Pinterest page to it, so that your personal online stylist gets a pretty good idea of your preferences and style.
Once you are ready ( as a customer) to receive a shipment, you will be sent a package via mail that contains 5 items in your preferred style and size. You can choose to keep the items and be charged only for the items that you keep or you can send back the items that you don't wish to keep in the prepaid return envelope that is provided.
To apply with the company, you'll want to go to the bottom of their website found at:
Click on the tab that reads: Jobs.
Next, you'll want to find a link that says: Stitch Fix stylist (remote position) in your city.
Right now, they are only hiring in select cities, but keep an eye on the site for more cities to be added.
The application process is pretty straightforward and can be done directly through a link to apply provided on the site.
If you are selected to be interviewed by a representative of the company, I would suggest to dress your best and look extremely presentable. This does not have to cost you any money, just pick put your best shoes and outfit, and make sure you have arranged your hair attractively and make sure your nails and hair have been done up nicely.
Even more important than that, perhaps, might be how you present yourself. Keep a positive attitude and get ready to bring your "A" game to the interview.
You may be asked to put together a Pinterest board or a style board (all online) based on criteria that your interviewer will give you.
Last year I finally bit the bullet and applied to work for Stitch Fix. I got dressed up and headed downtown, excited to see what the application process would be like. I was asked to bring my own laptop in order to complete a questionnaire and complete the application process on-site.
When I arrived, they had a few of us sit down in the lobby and work on the application/questionnaire and then they funnelled us upstairs for our interviews.
I was taken to a hotel room with two lovely ladies who conducted the interview with me. They had questions about how I would be able to handle working form home, my work ethic, and how I would handle situations with difficult clients. They were awesome and I think that portion of the interview process went really well.
I wish I could say the same for the next part of the interview process. They had me show them my Pinterest boards that they had me put together for the purposes of the interview, but then, they had a few pieces of clothing and jewelry and thay came up with a scenario for a customer with specific instructions on what she liked and what she didn't like. I have to admit, I fell flat on my face during this part of the interview, because I'm no fashionista. =(
Did I get the job? Nope, I didn't. But that doesn't mean you can't learn from my mistakes.
If I had to do it again, I would bluff a lot better and just do my presentation with a bit more confidence, lol. The key is confidence.. no matter what!
According to the company, the work is part time, usually around 15 hours per week.
However, I have seen that they may bump you up to full time hours if you do well and if you have the time.
From all accounts, this is not a job where you will be told which hours you will have to work. You can choose which hours you work, however, they do want you to keep track of the hours that you work on a time sheet, and they also want to make sure that you stay on top of answering any questions that your clients may have as quickly as possible.
The best thing to do might be to set aside some time twice a day, maybe an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening to make sure you stay on top of your work.
The pay is a generous $15 per hour. For a college student, heck for a stay at home mom, this can be heavenly, especially for the type of work you will be doing.
No word on whether you will be hired on as an employee of the company or an independent contractor, but I would suggest to ask your interviewer this.
This job seems like it would be a dream come true for many.
What's not to like? You get to shop and pick out cute outfits, unleash your creative side and get paid for it. I happen to think that this might one of the most perfect online jobs for college students or stay at home moms.
The hours requirement is not intense, you are not on the phone, you get to choose the hours that you work and you get to tell people who ask what you do that you work as an online stylist.
How cool is that?
