    I worked at L.L. Bean part-time (Less than a year)

    LL Bean is a company with strong values and a commitment to its staff. There was never a moment were I felt as though I was being treated unfairly. The managements is approachable and genuinely cares about their staff. Everyone at the company is extremely friendly and enjoys there work.

    Cons

    On extremely busy days it can be hard to find a space to park.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at L.L. Bean (Victor, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Group interview with about nine other people; asked questions about experience in outdoor activities, tested comfort with "selling" product to fellow interviewees after a short while to look at the product. Friendly environment.
