    I worked at Duluth Trading Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employee discount and benefits are slightly above average.

    Cons

    The pay is sub par and the culture is poisonous to the point that the Ten Welds are only applicable only when it is convenient. Hiring practices only benefit those that come from a majority force (typically Land's End or Cabela's). Anyone else can expect to be left behind in the position they were hired in.

    Advice to Management

    The company touts a strong desire to maintain a positive and open culture but the company politics showcase a deeply broken company that welcomes ideas from only a select few leading to the best talent being disenfranchised and looking for any better opportunity. If you want to keep the best, you need to start relying on the skill of the best instead of micromanaging them away.

        Pros

        Growing company Retail expansion is the focus.

        Cons

        Turning into Lands End, the environment has changed and is very depressing.

        Advice to Management

        Stop hiring all these people from Lands End, all they know is how to run another company in the ground.
