Team Feature: Allison Salas


Describe your job at LSG. What's a typical day look like? 


I'm responsible for customer service and order fulfillment. A typical day starts with email correspondence with customers followed by pulling and packing product for orders. I juggle both shipping orders and customer service, usually breaking up the two every couple hours. 



What did you go to school for?

I went to school for music! Specifically audio engineering, which I discovered post-college was probably not for me. I still play music weekly though with my bandmate, Rob.


What's the first thing you do when you get in the gah-ffice? 

I get the tunes going for my gah girls! I enjoy figuring out the mood of the morning and finding something fitting. Check out Allison's LSG Spotify Playlist: link here!


The office is located in the SoMa district of San Francisco. What is your morning commute routine? 

My favorite routine is eating jam and butter toast as I listen to music while walking to the train. It's a positive start to the day if I get a seat on the train. 30 minutes later I'm in downtown San Francisco with about a 10-minute walk to the office from there. 



What's in your bag? Any Essentials?

Right now I've got an Emergen-C vitamin packet, a recycled Glossier pink bag with my latest working cross stitch creation, my journal, floss, lipstick, a foldable "bang brush," and the usual: wallet, keys, phone. 


Favorite part of your job? 

I love getting to know and chatting with our customers via email and live chat on the website! 


What's unique about working at LSG?

It's female-powered, small, and such a creative space. I love that I can be shipping orders while DJ-ing the photo shoot happening six feet away from me. 


You're a music enthusiast, can you tell us some of your current favorite tunes?

Currently loving 80's R&B, and female-lead oldies ( The Shirelles, Ronettes etc). As far as newer bands go- I'm a big fan of Land Of Talk, Jack & Eliza, Big Thief, Kings of Convenience, War on Drugs etc. 


When do you feel most successful or proud of your work?

As cheesy as it sounds, I feel most successful about my work when I know I gave my best effort, and full attention. 


Advice for someone wanting a job like yours?

Find a company you admire and can get behind. Be proactive. I always get asked how I heard about this role, and it was as easy as going to the website with the goal of looking for an opening. Go get 'em, tiger!
