Sooji Hwang, Parramatta, Management Team
I have graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce from University of New South Wales in 2012. I have always had an interest in management and the Japanese culture so the UMC program was a perfect opportunity for me. I joined this company in March 2013 and have had the amazing opportunity to be a part of the planning and implementation stage of opening the new Melbourne and Sydney UNIQLO stores.
My most rewarding experience
The most rewarding part of the UMC program is seeing how much difference I can make in the business. It is great to see how my ideas are being implemented on a day-to-day business. I have had customers come back to the store with smiles on their faces and it is wonderful to see how my team is revolutionizing Customer Service in UNIQLO Australia Careers. Seeing my staff members grow within the business is also a huge motivator for me.
My best advice for you
Show respect and hospitality to others. Stay positive and motivated and take ownership and responsibility for your work!
