Claudia's feedback: 

“I really enjoyed my experience over the 2 days. Everyone was so nice and welcoming and helped to show me their roles in the company. The trades call meeting gave me an insight of how the company use feedback from all the shops. The warehouse was amazing to see because I often wonder about the work behind people’s orders. The 2nd day was really interesting to see what styles fitted your target market. This experience made me realise I would love to work in a similar environment.”
