    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at The Limited full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely hard working team - very open to new ideas...leadership in place at the end was dedicated, decisive, and inclusive. It was an all-hands-on-deck proposition. When the ship went down we were all there together.

    Cons

    Company went belly up after decades of success. When the ship went down, the only person who wasn't there was The Captain (CEO). CEO got in a lifeboat by themselves. Sad.

    Advice to Management

    Coulda woulda shoulda

    Pros

    The Limited offers a discount on clothing to its employees and if you are trying to build a professional wardrobe in order to get a better job, its a good discount on the clothes.

    Cons

    The pay is minimum wage, really not enough to live off of, and the job is very demanding.
