Retail Employees Testimonials
I love my work/life balance I have found. I was looking for a company where I can utilize both careers as a Makeup artist and Esthetician, in a comfortable and warm atmosphere. Every day, I am empowered to make a difference in a person’s life. I introduce customers to our skin care; makeup and clothing which makes them feel confident and comfortable. Soft Surroundings is a company which not only values their customers, but also values their employees. Everyone gets to share in the success of the company; therefore, you are motivated to work hard to be part of the company’s growth. If you are looking for an opportunity to build a loyal and trusting relationship with your customers, then Soft Surroundings is a great place to be.

When I joined the company, we only had 5 stores, and I saw a lot of potential for growth. I love our company culture. We are like a family and we create an awesome environment for our customers. Everyone shares a common vision; we really care about servicing the customer and our employees. Soft Surroundings provides the tools to grow the business, but you are like a partner who truly manages her business.
Laura, General Manager, on the Soft Surroundings team since April 2012
I like working for Soft Surroundings because it is a growing company, but has been able to keep the small company feel. Coming from a small town and now living and working in a big city, I really like that Soft Surroundings is a tight knit community. It is refreshing that we are able to provide individual service in a fast paced world. We have women of all ages, shapes and sizes that come into the store. Each of their needs are different, from finding clothing that is light weight for travel to warm climates, to clothing that is easy to get in and out of. Soft Surroundings provides comfortable yet fashionable clothing for all. If you like the feel of a small community and being able to provide the best customer service I have ever seen, then you will be excited, just as I am, to be a part of the Soft Surroundings team.

I began my journey as a 'Soft' customer with my first purchase of leather boots years ago which I still own and love. By chance one evening, I was walking my dogs and saw a sign that said “Soft Surroundings Now Hiring” and the rest is history. My love of our product, along with the beautiful store and caring employees, makes it a pleasure to go to work every day. It doesn't hurt that our stores carry a wide variety of quality products that keep our customers happy and coming back for more. There are many great companies out there but few offer a management team that “say what they mean and mean what they say.” The 'Soft' team is progressive, involved and always available while still staying true to our brand. I stay for the people - my customers, my employees and my bosses, whom I respect. If you're looking for a job with a company that wants you to be a “business partner;” if you want exciting, colorful, hard work that allows you to be creative and work with people every day, then this is the place for you - it can be very fulfilling and the road to a great career.
