"I've worked for LB for two years. I started as a Full time lead and then due to another opportunity I dropped down to PT. I loved working there but now I am constantly bothered by the store manager on days that I work at my FT job, (and she knows this) to come in. When I tell her that I can't she doesn't put me on the schedule to work. It really sucks because I love the people who I work with but the manager is a real nightmare."

"I thought this company had many good aspects and many bad aspects. The people I worked with were very nice and taking time off was no problem. The hours were not appealing sometimes when we had to do floor sets until 3 am in the morning.There were some managerial problems but it usually did not affect the Sales Associates. Overall, I worked very hard for this company."

"Just okay...I have had worse jobs"

What do you like about working at Lane Bryant?

"Generous employee discount and I was able to work my way up fairly quickly."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Be very fashion focused and friendly! Customer Service is a top priority."

What don't you like about working at Lane Bryant?

"I HATE the forced 45 hour work week! It's completely unnecessary. 42 hours a week should be sufficient enough to get done what we need to get done. Also, they never seem to send us enough product. We often sell through item quickly and never receive replenishment. Plus, the customers are insanely needy. I've never worked somewhere before where customers expect you to hold their hands for them the way that LB shoppers do...I just don't get it ( I realize that has nothing to do with the company itself). The pay SUCKS! Even as a manager I had to work a 2nd job for awhile. And, I hate having to shove that damn credit card down everyone's throat"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Stop forcing managers to work 45 hours a week! I often feel like a caged animal in my own store! Start being more generous with compensation, you have lost lots of great talent by not giving raises out for several years in a row. Have better training programs in place, all associates should receive the same training, not just certain SMs. ."

Store Manager
in Omaha, NE

What do you like about working at Lane Bryant?

"There is lots of growth right now within the company ( I was promoted to store manager only after one and a half years with the company, and they have one of the most generous discounts of any retailer I have worked for"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Customer Service is the number one priority for this company! Going above and beyond for your customers will get you far in this company."

What don't you like about working at Lane Bryant?

"I hate being forced to work a 45 hour week! It takes hours away from my employees and it's completely unnecessary. Also, they are beyond cheap when it comes to compensation. They often bypass raises altogether or when we do get them they are very small. It's insulting really."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Stop forcing managers to work 45 hour weeks, it's often unnecessary and takes hours away from hourly employees. Market better, we STILL have people who are clearly not in our demographic coming into the stores. And, make sure the stores are stocked better, I often sell thorugh items quickly and never get replenishment."
