    I worked at Love Culture part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty flexible hours. My coworkers and I worked well together on things that needed to get done, and we got a long well.

    Cons

    A few of the managers I worked with were very unprofessional and disorganized. Because of this, it was hard to communicate with them, and scheduling wasn't very well put together. Thus, causing the good associates to pick up a lot of the work load that needed to be completed.

    I worked at Love Culture (More than a year)

    Pros

    LoveCulture is a great place to work if you are looking for a fast paced environment and enjoy fashion. When I worked there, I got a 30% discount on clothes and the clothing style changing pretty frequently.

    Cons

    LoveCulture had MANY problems with hiring responsible management. The managers I had were unreliable and didn't provide feedback but doled out punishment. Clothing quality is low.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs to invest more in their managers and follow up with the sales associates about how they are being treated. I loved working here but had to leave because of unreliable management.

    Pros

    Easy women's retail store. Great first job! Love the clothing! Friendly team members and great managers. Visual and sale challenges!

    Cons

    not enough pay, retail self explanatory, sales clothing section clean up outrageous, hours varied, on call shifts. Closing and opening

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire anyone just based off looks, hard work comes in all looks, shapes, and sizes

    I have been working at Love Culture part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The staff seems like they'll support you and the work environment is cool especially if you like clothes. It's always great to work as a team.

    Cons

    Hourly wage, they seem to low ball you with excuses as to way they can't pay you the price you want. Asked for a certain rate and they gave me 25 cents lower than that. Retention rate isn't high, but hey it is retail. It's more like a stepping stone more than anything.

    Advice to Management

    Give the people who want to work there the right hourly wage, especially if you can.

    Pros

    The people you work with
    The discount (20% off on regular items not sale/clearance items)

    Cons

    No health insurance for part time employees.
    Pay is low. If you want to be a sales associate expect to be paid $7.25/hr
    No work/life balance but that's apart of retail
    New shipment in EVERYDAY. Great for customers, tough on employees.
    Management will fix the schedule to their liking and not the store's liking
    30 minute lunches if your work 5+ hours. 10 minute break if you work less than 5 hours.
    Cleaning up can be tough especially on weekends and holidays
    Understaffed and underpaied (ESPECIALLY ON WEEKDAYS)
    Management is not experienced
    Most of the sales associates do not have retail experience, so if you've been in retail or a long time or if you're older be prepared to be annoyed.
    Catty
    Don't make sales goal = hours are getting cut
    High Turnover. 90% of the girls are young and in school, 10% get tired of the pay and the amount of work that you have to do at LC.

    Advice to Management

    To Store Management:
    Stop fixing the schedule to your liking. Stop making up excuses just because you want to leave early. Assistant Managers would like to open instead of closing every night.

    To Corporate:
    It is obvious that you care about the business more than you care about your actual employees. That is one reason why your turnover is high. Stores do not need shipment everyday. Especially if you have a smaller store. Sales goals are unrealistic. $4,000 on a weekday? That's a weekend goal. The way you handle shrink is horrible. LC's shrink rate has to be through the roofs. Focus more on the business and the employee's and watch how your money grows.

    I worked at Love Culture full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The discount and almost "inclusive" atmosphere is really the only thing that I can see that has any value with this company whatsoever, anything else I have to say about this company is completely negative.

    Cons

    Heartless and inactive management, relentless verbal abuse, deceitful and malicious staff, long hours for little or no recognition, no room for advancement, a staggeringly high turnover rate. Lies about advancement opportunities, EDITS EMPLOYEE WORK HOURS WHICH IS ILLEGAL. Management staff are basically running the place into the ground because they are unprofessional, lack experience and basic math skills. Lie to customers, yells at customers and employees, very hostile work environment. Employee bathrooms have been broken for 2 years. Janitorial work. Pieces of the ceiling literally falling on your head because they refuse to pay for maintenance work on store. Unsafe working conditions, stalker central and management does nothing except blame employees for hostile customers. Recently had to close half the store.

    Advice to Management

    If an employee attempts suicide, do not tell them that the most important thing is for them to get back to work. Please stop treating customers and employees like trash. Hire Management that actually knows what they are doing. Stop cutting corners to make money and actively listen to your employees when they tell you something is wrong instead of blaming them for everything.
