    I worked at Lilly Pulitzer part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - I really loved working for this company!

    - Everyone including the customers are happy to be there and everyone is typically always so happy to be at work that it made it a pleasant experience.

    - It was a really fun job to have! Perfect for a young girl or a college job! Just will NOT pay the bills.

    - Over time on holiday and 401K benefits even if you are part time.

    Cons

    - Decent employee discount with no pay. Basically you pay for your cloths to wear to work! If you have any bills, forget about it! Before they had a discount where it was more affordable for everyone to wear the cloths, but now you really have to be wise about ever purchase :( !

    - No PAY! Some people in the same position make more money then you when you have the experience and the degree. It is a bit crazy.

    - Full time is 30+ hrs a week. Part time is like 3.5 hrs- 19.5 hrs a week.

    All-in-All, honesty I love the company, the values, and the meaning. Lilly Girl For LIFE <3

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is great, however, GM was still intimidating to talk to even working there for her over a year.

    I worked at Lilly Pulitzer full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent training, company values (written out and known by all employees) and health benefits, as well as the discount on the product which is nice.

    Cons

    Days start at 8am ("you're on time or you miss it" - a core value) and certain departments tend to stay until 6pm at the earliest (often later) so it can be very difficult to balance work/life during weekdays when it is expected that you are a team player but you have "technically" put in a full workday.

    I worked at Lilly Pulitzer full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I started at headquarters right out of college. It was a great FIRST job. Atmosphere was fun & energetic

    Cons

    I worked in the Wholesale Department it was so petty working with the Wholesale accounts. Management took accounts word over own employees. I would highly suggest not working in the Wholesale department.

    I worked at Lilly Pulitzer

    Pros

    Great discount, the clothes are super cute - they make it easy for you to purchase, and you are paid well.

    Cons

    Lots of drama within the team. If you ever have a concern and voice your opinion to higher management, nothing is ever done about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more of a connection between the store manager and the assistant manager. There was definitely a lack of respect on the assistant's part and it was not helpful for the store moral.

    I have been working at Lilly Pulitzer part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The atmosphere at Lilly Pulitzer makes me want to come to work each day. Great discount! It is very fast paced so I never experience a dull moment.

    Cons

    I have no complaints! The rules and regulations are very consistent which makes the job for the employee with customers much more true.

    I have been working at Lilly Pulitzer full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Generous discount, flexible hours (September-April), fun work environment.

    Cons

    Little room for advancement unless you start in one of the flagship stores. Pay is less than competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within! The senior management turnover rate is astronomical, and maybe they could use some people who have actually worked a sales floor so that they have some sort of idea as to what is going on in the stores. Taking markdowns the same day as a new shipment and floorset doesn't make for happy employees. Sales goals should be taken a look at, a 50% increase from LY is far from practical.
