    I worked at Laila Rowe part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Easy-going. Very flexible. Corporate says one thing, but does another so basically, you ran the store however you felt like it because they hardly paid any attention to the store, they care more about the sale profits. The store teams are filled with wonderful people. Customers are regulars and amazing feedback about the prices. Good promotions and discounts.

    Cons

    Horrible Corporate. Greedy and Stingy head quarters. DM is super nice but they are very emotional and take criticism as an attack. Hardly any raises given, you really have to PROVE you worked hard to get a raise. (You basically had to show them that your numbers were going up or forget about that raise) They don't know how to handle situations within the store. Visuals stink at their job. Buyers buy some of the most random merchandise expecting you to sell/display them nicely. Ordering supplies and paperwork for the store is extremely a big hassle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rebuild corporate from bottom up with management criteria and have a layout of how you want to run this store and what could better the boutiques around the coast. If not, sell this amazingly cute boutique line to someone who can run it better.

    I have been working at Laila Rowe

    Pros

    Great staffing and customer service
    Beautiful jewelry/ accessories to sell
    Flexible schedule
    Customer trust
    Easiest retail job

    Cons

    Corporate doesn't see eye to eye with staffs
    Un-organized management training
    No shrinkage or Loss Prevention program
    Horrible payroll and working unfair hours
    No benefits or bonuses to any worker
    Not much growth in company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate people should try to work at a store for a day to realize how their employees work hard to make sales, how shrink easily happens, how hard their employees put effort to sell the brand and store. More payroll needs to be distributed and raises to well-deserved employees are a must.

    Pros

    The discount, and the area. There are other store at which to shop.

    Cons

    Low pay; condescending management; lots of standing and we're not allowed to sit for long periods of time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise your pay rate, make employee benefits available, and stop treating your employees like a commodity; they are people.
