And we try not to take ourselves too seriously. There’s plenty of room to make your mark here. Come work with us and wear what you love. #OriginalsWanted

Wear What You Love: Retail at LS&Co.

THERE ARE A LOT OF PERKS to working for Levi Strauss & Co., not least of which is that you get to wear jeans (or khakis) — and not just on Fridays. Nope! Every. Single. Day. (I mean, since we’re making this awesome apparel, shouldn’t we be wearing it?)

Here are a few more highlights of working at Levi Strauss & Co.:

  • Health: We offer competitive benefit options, and employees can handpick the medical, dental, vision and life insurance plans that are right for them. Plus, we were the first Fortune 500 company to grant domestic partnership health benefits.
  • Time off with pay: Everyone needs some time to recharge! Employees get a certain number of personal days off each year (depending on location and tenure), plus paid holidays.
  • Product discounts: To make it even easier to create an amazing work wardrobe, employees get a discount at all company-owned retail stores and ecommerce sites. Plus, we occasionally have special employee-only promotions.
  • Sample sales: Several times a year, employees can purchase samples from our brands at a significant discount, with all proceeds benefiting local community partners — so you can shop and do good at the same time.
  • Corporate discounts: We offer discounts at companies such as Apple, Microsoft and AT&T Wireless. Depending on what office you’re located in, there also may be discounts available for things like transportation and nearby gyms.

FOR MORE THAN 160 YEARS, we’ve been giving back to the communities where we have a business presence. It’s a legacy that started when Levi Strauss made a contribution to a San Francisco orphanage back in 1854 that we still support today. And as we like to say here, giving back never goes out of style. Here’s what that tradition looks like today:

Employees & Community

  • Community Day: One day in May, employees get out from behind their desks for a global day of service. In 2019, employees participated in nearly 200 projects in more than 80 locations across 46 countries. 
  • Matching gifts: Employees can request that their personal volunteer time or charitable donation be matched by the Levi Strauss Foundation, up to $2,000 per fiscal year.
  • Paid volunteer time: To encourage employees to support charitable organizations with their time and talents, we offer full-time employees up to five hours per month (60 hours per year) of paid time off to volunteer at charitable organizations of their choice.
  • Service Corps: The LS&Co. Service Corps is an immersion volunteer program for some of our most engaged employees to see our Worker Well-being programs in action, and to experience what life is like for apparel workers outside of the factory walls. It’s a unique opportunity for employees to see how our profits-through-principles approach to business fuels our commitment to improving the lives of the people who make our products.

Our Foundations

  • Red Tab Foundation: The Red Tab Foundation, an industry first, was started by a Levi Strauss & Co. employee to provide a financial safety net for company employees, retiree and their families. The nonprofit is primarily supported by donations from individuals – including employees and retirees, descendants of Levi Strauss and other company shareholders.
  • Levi Strauss Foundation: The Levi Strauss Foundation is LS&Co.’s main philanthropic arm in the community. The foundation supports community partners that push the frontiers of social progress for underserved communities where we have a business presence.

 

SUSTAINABILITY IS WOVEN into everything we do. It’s how we do business, how we show up in the world and how we respond to what our planet, our business and our consumers need.

We take responsibility for the social and environmental footprint of our products and operations, doing right by the places where we live and work.

We know it’s not enough for us to make statements or sign pledges and think that gets us where we need to be. It has to be about impact. After setting ambitious targets, we must execute to meet those targets, innovating to find the best practices and sharing what we learn to influence the industry. That is what we are doing across our operations, and in our four key sustainability focus areas: water, climate, chemicals and people.

We are committed to seeing this work through and building on it to drive more sustainable performance across our business and our industry. It is what the planet needs and demands of us. It is also how we help the company grow, innovate and stay as durable as the products we make.

    great interview with basic interview questions. I applied online and got a call a couple days later. After the interview, heard back maybe a week or less later. Would look up jean styles if you dont wear them.
