Embroidery Associate (Current Employee), Stevens Point, WI – September 30, 2013
Pros: nice supervisors, occasionally provide food, rewards
Cons: short breaks, lack of benefits, extremely fast-paced environment
The hardest part of the job is to keep up with speed. Very demanding job in the trimming department. Lack of breaks - only two 15 minute breaks in a 8 to 9 hours shift. I enjoy working with a variety of people. They have great personalities. The most enjoyable part of the job is to communicate with the supervisors and technicians regarding the problems – more... with the garments and learn how to solve them. – less
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee), Stevens Point, WI – August 27, 2013
I would arrive to work, sit at my station, and start taking phone calls. I learned that a company that is based in Wisconsin has a lot of followers. The managment was always helpful. I did not intract with co-workers while working. However, on our luch breaks, some of the people I have met are still my friends today. the hardest part of my job was those – more... phone calls with unhappy customers. The best part of this job was talking to people all over the world. – less
INTERN (Former Employee), Dodgeville, WI – August 20, 2013
I met some of the most amazingly talented and great people while I was at Lands' End. It is a great company that really stands behind their values and makes a huge effort every day to take care of not only their customers, but also their employees. Loved every moment of my experience.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Dodgeville, WI – August 14, 2013
Pros: back up child care, work out facility and alot of community service
Cons: no health care.
This company is a wonderful company to work for. Great hours and work environment. A typical day at work was to come in and take sales calls which included but was not limited to new orders, helping with existing orders and any other issues which might have come up. Co- workers were very helpful and always willing to help out. The only part of my job – more... in which was a struggle at times is when our computers would crash. I felt bad as I could not help the customer at the time in which they called. What the most enjoyable part of my job was helping my customers. I love my customers. – less
Assistant Technical Designer - Accessories (Current Employee), Dodgeville, WI – July 16, 2013
A typical day of work, I reviewed tech packs for publishing, responsible for knowing the legal requirements of labeling and packaging of product, measure samples and write comments.

IT (Former Employee), Dodgeville, WI – June 23, 2013
Pros: job security
Cons: small chance for professional advancement. modest pay. skimpy training.
Great flexibility nice people and moderate expectations for work quality. Managers have mostly been there forever live local and place value in job security. Little professional training but job advancement possible if you wait decades. Marginal compensation merit raises rare and small bonuses usually nonexistent since Sears took Lands End over. Really – more... comfortable place to hang out and retire from. – less
Sales Consultant (Former Employee), Houston, TX – June 5, 2013
Cons: poor management
My manager was the worst manager i have ever had. i think she was bi-polar. But she was extremely rude if she thought u weren't going to buy any clothes. I would never work for her again but lands ends was ok.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Wayne, NJ – May 7, 2013
Since the Lands' End Shop is currently inside Sears, the hardest part of the job is having to deal with ringing up Sears customers, this at times interferes with Lands' End customers who have been waiting in line or might need help looking for an specific item. There is a lack of communication between the Sears managers and Lands' End's. The company – more... highlights a team type of culture at work, which makes me feel wanted and welcomed most days. There is however, a lack of growth for employees within the company. I, as an employee, am supposed to be reviewed for my work each year and have not been reviewed since the first year of working for the company. No raises! – less
