    I have been working at L.L. Bean full-time (less than an year)


    L.L. Bean employees are well taken care of, from the comprehensive and forgiving training program to the great benefits offered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up good personal relationships, they have a positive effect on an employees attitude.
