DASH Store New York Hiring
Back in September of 2010 the internet blog mastermind Coco Perez reported that Kourtney Kardashian was actively hiring and recruiting new team members for DASH New York. The Kardashians were looking to hire “hot and trendy” ladies with a sense of style all their own. They needed to be able to stand out in a fashion store that caters to New York clothing demands and expectations.

A few of the requirements for working at the DASH store are pretty straight forward. You have to be willing to work full-time. You should hold a passion for all things retail. You need to be able to hold your poise on national television. Wait a second, that last one didn’t seem too “normal,” did it? But that’s because working at the DASH store, or being a DASH Doll, as the store attendants are called, is not necessarily a normal job. While 99% of the time you will act and behave as a normal retail associate would; helping customers find something you would never wear in their size, sorting through the 14 shelves of like-names items to find a price tag for a skirt the customer claimed to have found “over there.” However every now and then, and seldom should be used as a word to describe the frequency, but every so often, the DASH Dolls get to make an appearance on the reality show on E! Keeping up with the Kardashians.
Working for DASH on Keeping up with the Kardashians: How to Apply
DASH NYC wanted all interested applicants to contact a man named Brian, through a New York “retail casting” agency of all things, in order to arrange interviews for the most outgoing and qualified applicants.
The old DASH applications used to ask for your name, birth date, personal phone number, a short description of your interests and passions, a few notes about any previous work experience, a few lines about what makes you, you, and finally (however unorthodox this might be for a traditional job application) a headshot with a clear picture of your beautiful mug. Yes, your candidacy to work for DASH New York is actually partially (if not heavily) dependent on your looks.
Who can apply at DASH NYC?
Anybody over or including the age 18 is applicable for employment at any of the three DASH boutiques. The store encourages both male and female applicants, and does not place a discrimination or favor on any gender when weighing potential applicants. Of course it’s hard to believe that casting for the reality shows doesn’t play some sort of part in the store’s hiring process, but I choose not to think about that part.
All jobs for DASH Manhattan started in October of 2010. That is just before the public opening of the boutique, as this timing gave store workers time to setup and arrange the clothing in the store.
