Store Manager (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – March 31, 2014
My experience at L Brands although stressful definitely gave me the knowledge and training I needed to further my career as a manager. The training provided was excellent and the company really tries to prepare their managers for a balanced work/life style.
Pros: general assembly, department lunch meetings and some occasions have free lunch, free pizza or free breakfast.
Cons: overtime and on call support sometimes needed.
Sometimes our team or department meetings happen during lunch time, especially if some issues arise and need an urgent attention to have either temporary or permanent resolution. During such given incident, we gather with our lunch together and start giving ideas and suggestions. We didn't feel like we are working because it feels like friends gather – more... around having conversation. And with this approach the stress was eliminated which helps a lot to bring out more positive results and everyone become productive. – less

Pros: 4 day work weeks
Cons: working for a temp agency before they hire you on
I love the atmosphere I learned how to pick using a voice activated assistant named jenenefir. The co-workers were easy to get along with. This is by far the best company i have ever worked for. there is lots of room for advancement.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Langhorne, PA – August 30, 2014
I have worked for limited brands for alost ten years. It was my first job out of high school. I first worked as a sales associate and soon after was promoted to sales lead. I have been recognized as employee of the month etc. many times. I value a job that allows room for growth.
Great company to work for. Fast paced company with little work/life balance. Fantastic for learning opportunities on and off the job. Lots of free little giveaways. Difficult to be an introvert at this company/

Bath and Body Works Assistant Merchant (Former Employee), Reynoldsburg, OH – July 30, 2014
Pros: free product, nice atmosphere and cafeteria, positive atmosphere
Cons: mindless work, micromanagement
At L Brands, I worked as an Assistant Merchant. The position was different every day, one day might be prepping for a display in the store, the other creating displays for the CEO of L Brands to view. The management was involved, slight micromanagement i.g. showing up unexpectedly to ensure work is being done, checking in every hour, showing progress – more... throughout the day. The most enjoyable was the positive attitude and peers who always celebrated every event.The hardest part of the job was respecting people's title and not questioning their ideas due to their position, and with my creative thinking, I always want to challenge (respectively) outside of the box! Also, I participated in Pelotonia which was a life changing experience! – less
