    Pros

    The people that you work with always make the job a lot better and a lot more fun. The management within the store was excellent. The leaders were there for the employees and you always felt comfortable going to them for advice, questions or concerns. It has been a while since I've been there but the discount on the merchandise (if you buy the clothes) was really really good...like one of the highest %'s off that I had heard of.

    Cons

    It has been a while since I've been there, but the salary was on the lower hourly wage $8-$9. Considering the merchandise can be pretty expensive, I think they can afford to increase that for their employees. They might have done so in recent years, if so, I applaud them for that.

    Advice to Management

    I'd like to have seen more leadership development and training for the part time staff.

    I worked at Lane Bryant part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was basically hired on the spot when I applied and brought back my application to the manager at the time. I had an interview with the assistant store manager the next day and she hired me right then and there. The interview wasn't that hard, just the same basic questions from what I remember like do you have retail experience/what would you do in this situation/your view of fashion etc. It was nice to working around other women who share the same kind of body size and also the 40% employee discount wasn't bad either.

    Cons

    Being put on fitting room duty as soon as I walked in the door during a busy time wasn't all that fun. Starting pay was only just barely above minimum wage and no benefits unless you were promoted full time. Definitely need more than one part time associate and a supervisor to run the store especially during peak hours.

    Advice to Management

    Need better loss prevention methods and limit the amount of clothes guests bring in to try on in the fitting rooms.

    Pros

    Benifits, time off, pay, and company culture. Senior leadership is great and values feedback. Great strategy in place to move the brand forward.

    Cons

    Lack of store payroll to balance workload and service the client. Besides that not to many other cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing.
