Chico's FAS

Chico's FAS is a fashion company that started as a single small shop in Sanibel Island, Florida. It outsold the local competition tremendously. Chico's then became a fashion boutique, which is what it is still today. However today they are a Fortune 500 company and have over 1,500 locations across the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

  • Immersion into day-to-day functions and responsibilities of a specific team
  • Presentations to company executives and interactions with senior leaders within the organization
  • Panel discussions with leaders from various departments
  • Classroom-style training sessions to develop leadership skills and provide cross-functional learning opportunities

Chico's tries to keep work and your social life intertwined. They want your friends to also be your co-workers. The layout of their world headquarters is a lot like a college campus. The campus includes basketball courts, gyms, and restaurants. All in hope that you spend more time at work.

Along with the fashion departments of Chico's their is also a finance and accounting department on the world headquarters campus. Between the amount of sales and purchases that the company as a whole makes on a daily basis there is a lot of work involved in making sure that all the records are correct.

Interning at a company like Chico's FAS would tremendously increase my experience. It will not only increase my accounting experience but also my understanding of the organization that is required to run such a large company. I will also be able to provide contributions to Chico's by learning the different positions and lending a hand with any task that is presented.
