I worked at Lilly Pulitzer part-time for more than a yearPros
- I really loved working for this company!
- Everyone including the customers are happy to be there and everyone is typically always so happy to be at work that it made it a pleasant experience.
- It was a really fun job to have! Perfect for a young girl or a college job! Just will NOT pay the bills.
- Over time on holiday and 401K benefits even if you are part time.Cons
- Decent employee discount with no pay. Basically you pay for your cloths to wear to work! If you have any bills, forget about it! Before they had a discount where it was more affordable for everyone to wear the cloths, but now you really have to be wise about ever purchase :( !
- No PAY! Some people in the same position make more money then you when you have the experience and the degree. It is a bit crazy.
- Full time is 30+ hrs a week. Part time is like 3.5 hrs- 19.5 hrs a week.
All-in-All, honesty I love the company, the values, and the meaning. Lilly Girl For LIFE <3Advice to ManagementAdvice
Management is great, however, GM was still intimidating to talk to even working there for her over a year.RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied online. The process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Lilly Pulitzer in July 2012.Interview Details
The interview process was disorganized. I applied online, then networked to follow up on the application, and received an email from HR stating they'd like to interview the following week. I replied with my availability, as requested, then did not hear back until two weeks later. I replied again, and was told on a Wednesday that I would come in "that Monday," and they'd let me know by Friday what time. No word, no contact, then Friday at 5pm I still didn't have a response for my Monday interview time despite an email and voicemail to my HR contact. I finally received an email Saturday morning for my Monday morning interview.
I arrive for the interview, and met with an HR director who was unprepared and late. I applied for a specific position, but she didn't have any information on that department when I asked, and said she wasn't sure what their needs were. We discussed normal interview information (education, work history, goals) and discussed the culture of the company. There were no difficult questions, but many questions about brand identity (which is to be expected). I was told at the end of the interview that I would hear from her within two weeks regarding next steps.
Two weeks passed, and I followed up with no response. Another week passed, and I followed up with no response. I received a form rejection email with typos in it four weeks after the interview. I sent a very gracious thank-you email, and received no response.Interview Questions

Named for the social butterfly who once designed the iconic fabrics and dresses herself, Lilly Pulitzers (or just "Lillys," to adoring fans) are back in circulation by way of some 70 signature shops in more than 35 states, a catalog, select department stores, and through the company's website.
