“I love how P&C always offers you possibilities to improve and prove yourself.”
Why did you apply to work at P&C?
I’ve always loved fashion, and longed for a job in which I could make use of this passion every day. After finishing my degree, I began working at a Polish brand store. I knew even back then that my future lay in the fashion industry, preferably in a management position. And this is exactly why I applied to P&C – they offer a broad range of career opportunities and invest in their employees’ training and knowledge.
Was there a specific moment when you knew P&C was right for you?
I think I knew from the moment I came across P&C’s job offer a few years ago that this would be right for both my personal and professional development. Today I know that choosing this job was the best decision I could have made, and I look forward to what the future at P&C will hold for me.
What do you like about your job and responsibilities?
I like that I can live my passion for teamwork and numbers on a daily basis. When I managed the department of a Polish P&C store for three years, I loved my daily tasks as I’m a team player. Of course I also loved everything that had to do with our merchandise: the structure and optimisation of the departments, visual merchandising and the merchandise analysis. During my time as department manager, I gained a lot of experience and insights that help me with my current new challenge: I became a General Sales Manager in Poland and I love my new position! Now my main tasks involve planning, controlling, analysing the merchandise assortment and the development of the employees. With the help of my team, I aim to develop the store’s potential and create an atmosphere where our clients feel at ease and love to shop.
How has P&C contributed to your development so far?
I have always been supported by my superiors, and this has helped me to strengthen my own leadership skills. Then in September 2013, I was invited to participate in the Management Development Programme in Vienna. This time gave me the opportunity to reflect on myself and rediscover my strengths and weaknesses.
P&C also prepared me for my position as a store manager with a specific preparatory course. In this store manager course, I learned about my future tasks and was able to perfectly prepare for the role.
I am truly grateful that P&C takes good care of their employees and supports them in their career paths.
What are your wishes for your future development? What are your future career goals?
Ever since I started at P&C, I always knew I wanted to become a store manager one day. Now that I’ve reached this goal, I have a new one: I want to learn how to do my job outstandingly and gain as much experience and knowledge as possible in order to constantly improve.
What is your advice for new P&C employees?
P&C is the right choice for creative people who are performance-driven and always keen on continuing to improve.
