Berend | Store Manager
The North Face – Amsterdam
„One week I visit our store in Denmark, the other week in Belgium and the week after home in the Netherlands.
My title is still Store Manager, but I now have a joint responsibility for five stores instead of one, which is super cool!”
Pamela | Store Manager
VANS – Berlin
“From the beginning, my Store Manager was saying: “I know you’re going to stay here, you’re going to be a Store Manager.” He saw me going in this direction, leading a team. And he was right. I really like working in retail. I like the contact with people. I like working with the different teams.”
