Current Employee - Sales Associate in Lexington-Fayette, KY

Pros

The people are all nice, Its fun if you like working with children, My manager was very flexible with hours and days you needed off

Cons

Schedules are put out late and can change a lot, sometimes you only work like 5 hours a week because of too many employees, the shipments are large and hard to keep organized in the tiny back room and you are sometimes expected to put out 40 boxes of clothes in one day, the lp manager and regional manager don't seem to trust their staff, a lot of shoplifters come in

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire sales leads from people that work in the store instead of hiring someone that has less experience and does not know what they are doing.

    Pros

    Company overall has some nice people. HR tries to be competitve with benefits. The office space is nice and in a central location.

    Cons

    The company does not support working mothers. The pay is way below market rate. The morale isn't great. There is no incentive or motivation because growth is limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful of who you hire. Managers are abusing their power and driving people away. Give training to the new hires so they don't run away too.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Disapproves of CEO
