    I have been working at Lego Group part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Really makes your feel like you and your goals are important and relevant. Values and embraces diversity. Supportive teams that work efficiently together to achieve results.

    Cons

    No real opportunities for full-time employment unless going to their headquarters in CT or willing to relocate to another store. Stores are few and far between. A lot of competition from other toy retailers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep paying that extra attention to what your employees are looking for. And go for promotion from within, there are so many great dedicated candidates looking to move up in the company.

    Pros

    One of the more fun part-time jobs I worked. Nice co-workers and environment. Very busy during the Holiday season, but makes the shifts go by quick. Easy work during school.

    A lot of tourists in the area, so it's sometimes hard to communicate effectively. Still fun to meet a lot of different people though.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. Standard retail environment.
