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

    Pros

    Good discount but tbh you're just paying for what the clothes are actually worth. Seriously, if customers saw how we treat these clothes (throwing them all over the floor, stepping on them with dirty shoes, wearing them all day and then putting them back on the floor et cetera) they would never spend their money here.

    Cons

    Worst company I have ever worked for in my professional career. They expect you to work 15 hour days regularly, spend your days off coming in for "mandatory" meetings, cleaning the store, organizing backstop, berate you and use fear tactics to push sales goals, and sketchily "take you off the schedule" instead of firing people if they don't like you. Management is incredibly biased and plays favorites within the company. People working the same positions will be paid drastically different salaries based on said favoritism. And god forbid you speak your opinion because you'll just disappear off the schedule instead of being fired so you can't collect unemployment. LF is seriously unethical in the way they run their business and treat their employees. I'm surprised there hasn't been a class action lawsuit against them already.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your employees and try to run an actual, sustainable business.

    Pros

    Great discount! You will more than likely meet some awesome people !

    Cons

    Worst company I've ever worked for. You are told to be forceful on the sales floor and pretty much annoy customers. Pressure to make sales are insane for a company where you don't make commission. If your sales aren't up to par they will "let you go". You must clientele and bother people via Facebook and make phone calls telling people they should come shop. This company is a joke and is ran very poorly. If you like standing for 14 hours at a time with only a 30 minute break then this job is your cup of tea.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate how you run this company.

    I worked at LF Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The discount is incredible. If you get lucky, your coworkers become your best friends. Someone to comiserate with. Salary is high, but for reasons you come to understand quickly (see cons)

    Cons

    The hours are insane, and there's no such thing as part time. You are expected to spend off days (which for most part timers are school days) reaching out to clients, coming in for extra meetings, and offering to fill shifts. Pressure to make sales is incredibly intense and I have personally seen many people break down over inability to reach these goals.

    Advice to Management

    The entire business model needs a revamp. Sales are down because the market is saturated with trendy clothing at a better price point. Your stylists aren't at fault, its your business model.

    Pros

    Discount, personal style expression, ability to grow if you are willing to put in the work.

    Cons

    Be aware of the long hours and don't complain. I am full time so I am fully committed but read over some reviews before considering applying.
