    Pros

    I work at the Loft Outlet. It's fast paced most of the time. I get to work with a great team. The manager and asst. manager are fantastic! Always encouraging us to do our best and work hard. The employee discount is amazing and keeps us dressed in Loft Outlet clothing so we can be the best ambassadors for the product we are selling. Really our foremost product is our customer service which keeps our clients coming back.

    Cons

    There are none. Best part-time job.

    Advice to Management

    Continue your positive approach to training and managing. You make the Loft Outlet a fun place to work!

    Pros

    -Discount was amazing
    -Clothes are great quality
    -Flexible hours/schedule
    -Pay is okay - quite easy to move up in the store
    -pretty chill atmosphere!

    Cons

    -company sets unrealistic goals for the amount of people you need to force into opening a credit card - and then makes you feel bad when you dont make it.
    -specifically to international mall store - hiring manager was horrible. Definitely had favorites - she would only honor their requests off -scheduled me to work on my college graduation day and made me feel guilty for calling out. Regularly yelled at employees while the store was open in front of clients...I could go on about her.

    Advice to Management

    Set more realistic goals for your credit card applications etc. It's ridiculous to have to try and force someone into opening something such as a credit card.
