    I worked at Lane Bryant part-time

    Pros

    Since the stores are smaller, it's a more intimate environment. It was also very relaxed.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is the fact that it got a little stressful during rushes, weekends, and holidays, but all retail is like that, so it's not abnormal.

    I have been working at Lane Bryant full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, holiday pay,awarded paid time off, choice time, unused choice time rolls over to sick bank. Employee discount is great also with special buys and free product also.

    Cons

    Way to much projects delegated to the field employees by corporate. It gets very overwhelming when instructions are sent out and you communicate to your team so it can be executed right,them we get an email apologizing for the inconvenience but we have to do the work over. The company has way too many promotions it causes confusion with associates and clients. Say yes to the request gets used on a regular basis. Clients rude and disrespectful.

    Advice to Management

    Growth with in district is a slow process . Make sure you take your lunch, call outs are frequent.
