    I worked at Levi Strauss full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing brand culture, iconic and high quality products. High-paced, generally fun work environment within stores. Positive brand message and core values.

    Cons

    Transparent communication between regional management and entry level associates. Inefficient hiring practices and poor talent developement plans for upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Seek information regarding in stores directly to employees, rather than depending on chain of command to give transparent feedback and or speak to opportunities at a store level. Work harder to make empathy a focus inside of stores, and bring the culture to working in the corporate side of the brand into retail locations in meaningful ways.

    I worked at Levi Strauss part-time

    Pros

    The company is iconic and most people came in knowing what they wanted to buy. During the months that they reached their sales goals, each employee would receive one free item worth up to $100.

    Cons

    I have a good amount of sales experience and I was an efficient and hard worker and I made the same amount of money as teenagers who goofed off a lot.

    Pros

    Great people, great product, great business. It's nice to work at a place where you believe in the product and the company you're actually selling!

    Location is a little far from public transportation; SF headquarters could use more natural lighting in places. It'd also be nice to hear more about opportunities to move up and around in this company.
