    Pros

    Steady work, decent hours, and pay

    Cons

    Always have to ask customers if they want to apply for a credit card. The market is oversaturated with customers who already have one. It gets old fast.

    I worked at Lane Bryant part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The discounts here are amazing.

    Cons

    1. Training: Training here is really nonexistent. My training was to watch a movie on the first day.
    I feel like new staff should follow the manager or another employee for a couple of days. This way the new employee can learn and feel more confident at their job.
    2. Lack of Staff Working: Mostly it is just you and a manager during your shift. There really needs to be at least 2 sales associates and a manager. I would also have to leave late every time I worked because next employee would be late. One employee was 3 hrs late.
    A second sales associate would really solve this issue.
    3. Infighting: The manager seems to think we will work harder if there is infighting and constatnly competing with each other. This really makes for low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Train your Staff. More sales associates working. Do not encourage infighting.
