    Pros

    Thoroughly enjoyed my time at RL. I had been there for several years and met a lot of wonderful people throughout that time. Lot's of growth opportunity in my department. Co-workers were all great. We all love what we do, so it was always fun.

    Cons

    There were really no cons. Sometimes we worked long hours, but that is to be expected in any corporate role.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to really look at who they are recruiting. This company is amazing and attracts everyone in the retail industry. It's harder to pick through the bad eggs when there are just so many people who want to be a part of this company.

    Pros

    The benefits and discounts are great. They offer more PTO than most companies and it is a very diverse environment. You interact with people from many different backgrounds.

    Cons

    During "peak" season you work long hours, sometimes 10 hours/day 7days/week.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all associates equally, favoritism should be unacceptable.
