    I have been working at Vera Bradley full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Senior leadership has painted a very clear picture of what the road looks like - It will not be easy but I am 100% committed to the vision. I couldn't be more excited about the products and consider myself huge brand ambassador.

    Cons

    Lack of resources due to tough times.

    I have been working at Vera Bradley part-time

    Pros

    Great place to work in. Everyone is so helpful and friendly. Very flexible as well.

    The store gets kind of empty after school starts so it gets boring sometimes.

    I have been working at Vera Bradley part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get the BEST employee discount you could ask for, and the customers are usually pretty pleasant. I liked how the store felt and acted up-scale. And my co-workers are very kind.

    Cons

    The shifts were generally 4 hours long, so not long enough for my liking. The only people who were full time were the manager and assistant manager, and I would assume that they hired everyone else as part-time after that so VB would not have to pay for employee benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Let the sales associates make some decisions on product placement/event ideas. And to the higher up management: the brand would be more respected if the bags were not made in China like they originally had been.

    Pros

    I loved working at Vera Bradley! I was part-time so the work/life balance was very good, and I really liked working for a company that was started by women and had mostly women working in the stores. I never felt pressured to sell, and the company has amazing customer service!

    Cons

    I can remember no cons.
