Pros

Discounts and Gratis are nice. I worked in PINK and every new floor set, which was at least once a month, we would get to buy 10 items at 50% off. I am pretty sure I spent all the money I made there at the store. The employees were nice. Management was nice but seemed fake.

Cons

SCHEDULE!! Horrible...if you like being on call this place is for you. If you like having a set schedule then do not apply. My schedule was all over the place...different from week to week and I was a core associate. I had 3 guaranteed shifts a week but I would come in and they would be slow so they would cut me 2 hours into the shift. I was always scheduled 4 hours and then on call 4 hours after my shift ended but they never kept me. Also, I was on call on my days off and you have to call 2 hours before you have to go in to see if you are working. This was horrible because I could never plan my day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

On call schedules are ridiculous in a retail environment.

    Pros

    Many interesting and fun co-workers, discounts and various gratia throughout the year, opportunities for management training for those interested in long term careers

    Cons

    Management is extremely condescending and downright cruel sometimes. I often felt belittled by the managers and one occasion was called stupid in front of a customer for not knowing if a particular product was still in stock. The managers also have a habit of screaming at the cash wrap associates over the headset for not smiling. They also seem to "punish" those who have other jobs or school by scheduling them for times they have ask for off and then sending them home 6 hours early on other days. Overall, if you are not looking to have a career in retail or fashion merchandising, find another part time job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize what your associates do for the company, not just through words but through actions and treatment.

    Pros

    LBI does a lot of little things for its associates to make them feel valued (i.e. Associate Appreciation Week; Seasonal brand activities etc)
    Great discount
    Lots of hard-working and smart people to learn from
    Lots of opportunity to try new roles and to grow

    Cons

    The politics, at least in my area, are pretty bad. It really starts with the dept VP/leadership. It isn't like that everywhere in LBI, but VSD Marketing is rife with politics
    Areas and roles can be very siloed
    Really behind on technology. We do most everything in Excel. It can make for very time-consuming and inefficient work that is very prone to human error

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in technology that would provide time and money savings as well as more accurate results.
    Stand up for your associates and represent them to higher leadership so that talents are known even if the associate isn't Susie Social
