    I worked at Lane Bryant

    Pros

    Fun environment, lots of employee incentives and giveaways. The store where I worked really focused on selling to the customer which was a lot of fun. I wouldn't spend my entire shift folding shirts, but instead helping people build outfits.

    Cons

    Mandatory weekends
    I worked at multiple locations and policies and management styles can be very different from store to store, which can be frustrating

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Schedule people to their strengths. Don't schedule a seller to work inventory and a tasker the day of a huge sale!

    I worked at Lane Bryant part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The discount was awesome. You get a 40% discount at all stores within the company.
    First peek at cute new clothes.

    Cons

    Although we got a 40% discount, the prices were still outrageous. The store manager I had was a beast and found a flaw with every single outfit I wore.
    The pay was minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the store manager.

    Pros

    Great, supportive staff
    Free stuff when new lines came out
    Awesome customers

    Cons

    Terrible district managers and other managers in the district being catty and petty rather than working to develop under-performing managers. They'd sooner bully someone they didn't like out than work on training or anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better. You ask a lot of your staff.

    Pros

    Fun work environment. Great coworkers. Interaction with customers is top rate. Fun and trendy styles.

    Cons

    You have to be careful when buying clothes from Lane Bryant. Many are cheaply made, and fall apart or stretch out of shape in little time. It's hard to sell a product that you don't believe in completely. Also, there is way too much emphasis on selling their credit card.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We continually hear complaints from customers about our product line being too "youthful" or "trendy". I understand that Lane Bryant is trying to rebrand themselves, but perhaps consider incorporating some styles to satisfy the older clientele.
