    I have been working at Laila Rowe full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Teaches you to be more self sufficient, reliable, hardworking, and creative due to the lack of training but rising demands.

    Cons

    Not enough training for managers, key holders, and sales associates.

    Advice to Management

    Don't compromise your vision to fill the stores with unhelpful bodies. Allow management to have free range in hiring staff to provide assistance and sales to the demographic of each location. Hire and smart and willing hard worker not just a look. Provide management with proper training and the staff will produce the reflected the outcome of a great manager.

    I have been working at Laila Rowe full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cute stuff, decent discount.
    Creative freedom with merchandising.

    Cons

    No room for growth.

    Corporate is greedy and does not care about the people who work for them.

    Do not care about the customers they are trying to sell defective merchandise to.

    Long hours, low pay.

    Poor marketing. People are unaware of the brand.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the stores to someone who truly loves retail. Cute concept, but the entire corporate structure needs to be changed in order for the stores to be successful. Listen to the people who work for you. They have insight into the issues and have solutions for you to be profitable.

    I worked at Laila Rowe full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cute merchandise for an okay price. Was a good learning experience on how NOT to run a business.

    Cons

    Often times merchandise would come in wet and even moldy, yet we still have to put it on the floor. Management made it very clear that they did not care about their employees - only about the numbers each store made (probably why over 50% of their stores closed down). Just a very disheartening place to work overall. Lied about hourly wages to cut down on spending.

    Advice to Management

    As all Maryland and Virginia stores have had to shut down, if you have not learned your lesson on finding balance between running a business and managing employees, then there is no hope for Laila Rowe.
