    This company has low pay and treats their employees poorly

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe best thing about working for Lucky Brand is the discount, the employee gets 60% off anything bought themself and 40% something bought as a gift for someone else. If you are an associate working very part time Lucky Brand can be a fun and laid back place to work but don't try to get promoted and certainly don't have the desire to know what is going on in management, you will be disappointed and learn to hate the company

    ConsDisresepect to all employees, the pay is not competetive, the upper management is not profesional, constant accusation of things you didnt do so they can try to admitt to something you did do even if you didn't do anything. they would rather hire outsaide the company then promote with in. Constant change in policy and proceedure, they have a low budget so they are constantly cutting hours of employees even if the employee is full time. I would not recomend this company to ANYONE!!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees with respect and reward hard work. If you paid competetively you would have good employees who care and your profit will go and turn over will go down!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    This company is being run to the ground

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) North Bergen, NJ

    ProsLots of perks. Sample sales, summer hours, 21 vacation days

    ConsUpper management is horrible at communicating when big changes take place. Employees find out most of the changes through press releases on the internet. They keep selling all the brands. I would be surprised if they are still in business in a year.
