    I worked at L.L. Bean (More than a year)

    Pros

    The founder was a good guy and this has trickled down to managers.

    Cons

    None really except what you might usually expect working in retail. Standing on your feet along time. Working the cash register if you don't enjoy that.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at L.L. Bean (Freeport, ME) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Group interview with up to 7 people and two managers. Did certain assigned tasks like putting up a tent and selling items to them. Average difficulty questions. The recruiters were super nice.
