    I have been working at LF Stores full-time

    Pros

    The product is amazing, great communication with home office, fashion forward image and company growth, recent LF branding, higher ups are knowledgeable and encouraging, and there's mobility amongst the various different stores

    Cons

    There aren't titles so leadership roles can be unclear and a touchy subject at times

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities to be involved with what's going on in LA (at home office and the stores there!)

    I have been working at LF Stores part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The clothing, the discount, and the friends you make if you’re lucky to be part of a good staff

    Cons

    No relationship with home office management, and their ambivalence in regards to taking care of their employees ( i.e, parking situations for employees paying upwards of $130 per month for parking, air conditioning being out of service for 4 days and employees expected to work their scheduled hours in 102 degree weather and 90 degree working conditions without any adjustment to compensation, without any incentive or any response from home office after several attempts by store management to communicate with them), HR could care less about employee concerns, dissatisfaction, or health and welfare (one employee was rushed to urgent care for a steroid shot after black mold from the stockroom spread onto the shoes she tried on, causing a severe allergic reaction. After several attempts to contact HR, she was finally told by the HR rep that “she didn’t have time for this”. Another employee was rushed to urgent care for medical attention during her shift after she developed a heat rash/ allergic dermatitis as a result of the previously mentioned AC incident. She will probably not be compensated for her shift nor her medical bills. I personally, developed a form of facial dermatitis after one of our semi-annual sales back in 2017 from being in heightened contact with the clothing in a sub-standardly sanitary stockroom and sales floor for extended periods of time (10-14 hour shifts). I was told by store management that it couldn’t be from the clothing or the work environment because nothing of the sort had happened to him or to anyone previously, and their was no way to prove this to home office. The work environment in terms of cleanliness and sanitation is subpar. The pay is measly and forget about getting an annual pay raise without having to fight tooth and nail. And what’s expected from you for the pay, is less than incentivizing.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees, directly.... not through store management. Pay attention to your stores individually. Their demographical differences, their geographical differences, the differences between your locations are huge. What works in LA may not work in NY, what works in NY may not work in Miami. And also, pay attention to your consumers... your market is shrinking because the population as whole is getting wiser in their consumer behavior. You’re not paying attention, and taking it out on your employees is not a solution.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at LF Stores full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people that work in the warehouse

    Cons

    Absolutely everything else- it’s not a real business

    Advice to Management

    Selling a $200 garment that was manufactured in China for less than $5 is one thing, running a business is totally different. Learn the difference.
