I have been working at LEGO part-time (more than an year)

Pros

I enjoy the freedom of schedule from days to hours, the part time feature, and the Lego brand recognition. Everyone knows Lego! My direct manager is easy to communicate with. and very responsive. The job itself is fun once a report with store Managers is established and you learn your way of what is expected of you.
Its great to work with customers and help them find the perfect Lego System.

Cons

The pay is pretty low for the work and level of responsibility expected.
No upper mobility in career unless you want to move away from Bay Area.
Training is all online a learn as you go.
The separation from corporate apparent. As a Merchandiser I feel left out of events and perks that Lego Corporate employees are offered, they have them almost monthly! parties, gifts movie premiers, lunches, concerts, are announced in email blasts go to everyone in the company even though most
employees live outside of Enfield CT.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The email blasts regarding your events that the field are not included in seems thoughtless.

    Fun but demanding for a low salary job.

    I worked at LEGO

    Pros

    Seeing all the happy, excited faces for the product. The product is of good quality and will last for years. Plus it is very creative.

    Cons

    Where do I start... Demanding. Long hours for management. Having to deal with irate customers over a product that is just a toy. High Expectations of a staff that made about $9 an hour. No benefits for non-management staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand it's a business, but the entire retail staff needs better pay for expectations.

    I have been working at LEGO part-time

    Pros

    Good Discount, great job if you love building and kids, friendly work enviorment, loyal customers, as good as you can get with a retail job

    Cons

    mostly part time positions (flexible hours though), gets really busy during the holidays, communications between corporate and retail

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    as a sales associate your manager really determines how much you like it. Marketing and management from the corporate level to retail could be greatly improved. Mostly communication related things
