Current Employee - LE Shop Sales Leader

I have been working at Lands' End full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Management actually cares about you and your success! Great work/life balance! Incredible support! Amazing product that the customer loves!

Cons

The shop within a store concept causes a crazy dotted line supervision battle between the store management and your LE district management. (Not difficult, just tough at times). The store side doesn't understand the LE operation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management does a great job of recognizing their employees and making them feel appreciated. They dedicate the month of October to their shop leads and send little notes and gifts throughout the month. Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Lands' End part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work, friendly, pro-active

    Cons

    New policies feel like they are taking out the brunt of the economy out on the hourly employees and lower paid people who try to live pay check to pay check. . Very difficult if not impossible to become a regular full time employee with benefits. Now with what all of management blames on Obamacare, they are cutting everyone hours so that you can NOT get get more than 29 hours in any one week Appears like they've hired more people to make sure 2013 averages result in no one getting enough hours to get benefits. They don't care how this change effects their front line. They send staff home 15 minutes early to save $4 in wages?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a heart and realize that these changes effect your front line, the face and voice of Lands End. The trickle-down communication through leads and managers who can't do anything about decisions made up the ladder is cowardly.

    I have been working at Lands' End as an intern

    Pros

    The people were great and I was given clear direction and support to reach my goals. The health center and cafeteria are top notch. They are also working hard to make the office a sustainable environment.

    Cons

    Long-term prospects are stated in an unclear fashion. Dodgeville is a little far from Madison at about 45 minute drive. The company is controlled by Sears, which leaves a sense of uncertainty in its future.
