    I have been working at Levi Strauss part-time

    Pros

    The customers tend to be higher-end, so they're often easier to work with; the flipside is you get entitled jerks who think they can be rude to retail workers. There's pretty good flexibility if you're going to school.

    Cons

    Depends completely on management. Even within stores, how well your shift goes depends on who you're working under that day. Workers have to get used to quirks or specific complaints of whoever the shift lead is.


  2. "Embrace and execute core values"

    Current Employee - Dockers
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    This is a company where the core values are wonderful, but the ownership and execution of those values frequently falls short.
    The history and community involvement of this company are what sets it apart from it's peers.
    Levi's has terrific product and enormous brand value.

    Cons

    Some North American and Dockers managers and leaders do not engage with consumers and customers. Failure to hold managers accountable for listening to peers and making decisions that are informed and executable.
    Very political, and slow to react to market trends and efficiencies.
    Leadership is very fond of catch-phrases.

    Advice to Management

    To "play to win" they need to engage with the customers and the consumers. People, not posters, drive the dynamic. Understand that Dockers and Levi's have different target consumers. Embrace the core strengths of the brands, and leverage them to take market share from competition.
    Reach out to and "hear" experienced field directors and managers versus the most political and less experienced home office managers.
