DXL Group – Why Work For Us?


DXL Men's Apparel proudly offers the clothes you want that you just can't find elsewhere – menswear designed for your build and your proportions. While other stores end at size XL, that's where we begin. Thanks to DXL's one-stop shop with thousands of clothing options, you'll always put your best foot forward.

We provide one of the most extensive assortments of XL men's clothing and shoes around. From value-priced labels to high-end designer brands, there's something to fit every taste and every budget.

DXL offers timeless brands like Polo Ralph Lauren, Lacoste, Levi's, Cutter & Buck, and Nautica. You'll find celebrated designer labels like Michael Kors, Jack Victor, True Religion, Lucky Brand Jeans, Robert Graham, and Cole Haan. DXL's own brands, including Oak Hill, Harbor Bay, Synrgy, and True Nation, give you exclusive options.

DXL is the only retailer that carries designer clothing, from Brooks Brothers, Lacoste, and Michael Kors, to Reebok and True Religion, in your size. We also feature Lucky Brand Jeans in exclusive washes you just won't find anywhere else.

With the most sizes available – Waists 38-64, Big Sizes XL-7XL, Tall Sizes XLT-6XLT, plus shoes in extended sizes 10-16 and widths to 5E – putting together the perfect wardrobe has never been easier.

When you visit one of our 200+ store locations or go to our web site to shop, you'll see that DXL puts the man behind the clothes first. Our in-house style experts are available to share the latest clothing trends or help you create a classic, versatile outfit. We also offer expert tailoring, so you're guaranteed the most customized fit imaginable.

Leading with our values.

No matter what your role is in the organization, there’s one common thread that ties us all together – our Core Values. There are four traits that we look for in each and every one of our associates. Collectively, we must understand that we are here to help serve a previously underserved customer. In order to achieve this, we must support and challenge one another … day in and day out.

EXPERTISE

Bring your specialized skills, knowledge, and expertise to the table to enhance the overall success of the company.

CHAMPION

Serve as a partner to your peers as you find solutions and generate better ways to improve processes. “NO” is not in your vocabulary.

COURAGE

To grow with us means having the guts and determination to step out of your comfort zone, to take risks, and challenge yourself ... and your peers.

FRESH

Join the industry leader and take pride in a unique organization that’s innovative, ever-evolving, and unmatched by anyone else.

Impacting our communities.

When you give, you get so much back in return. That’s why we are committed to giving back in many ways. Since 2005, we've been honored to partner with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Through the efforts of our team, DXL Group has raised more than $10 million for St. Jude through the annual Walk/Run, our Holiday Thanks & Giving Campaign, and various activities like celebrating Halloween and NFL Pride. It doesn't get more rewarding than that.

I like working for this amazing company because of 2 words….THEY CARE! I have never worked somewhere where you are empowered to be yourself and pushed to be better than you were yesterday. DXL is always there to help me think outside the box and to be my very best, no matter what the outcome is. Because of this support, I know that I am valued and empowered to give my best every day!

Mark Albert
VP, Creative, Visual Merchandising & Store Design at Destination XL Group, Inc.

Who would have thought that a high school seasonal help position would have lead to such an amazing career journey that allowed me to channel my creativity. While I’ve worn several different hats along the way, the company has always championed my professional growth. Today, I’m the VP of Creative & Visual with challenges, responsibilities, and success beyond what I could have imagined.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DXL Group.

    Interview

    Very long process. I had to go through four interviews with three different people. The questions were pretty standard. Asked things such as why do you want to work here, what do you think you can contribute to the role.
