Manager (Current Employee) – Canada – 29 November 2017
Company preaches brand loyalty, but does not develop and promote from within. Many more than capable candidates have come and gone due to this. Will set up a "plan" to develop, but there is never any follow up, or commitment to it.
Part-time Key Holder, Cashier (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 24 August 2017
I had a fun time working there. Was not promised any advancement in the company. Had to constantly count the products and would get in serious trouble if the count did not add up. Was too strict for a part time position.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 5 July 2017
Usually worked from 4pm-12am. There were no set hours because they would not know how long the hockey game would last, so it was frustrating to never know when you would end (obviously not the managements fault). Not the best if you have school the next morning. You do get to choose when your shifts would be which was very nice. Co-workers were friendly
Manager - Retail (Current Employee) – BC – 24 April 2017
The overall job is a fun environment if you enjoy working with people, communicating with customers and the sporty vibe Lids sets forth. I started out loving my job until I realized how corrupt the upper management of the company is. There is favoritism over management and they seem to value employees who don't carry substantial knowledge in their work rights and their position to create management with "superiority."
Interesting & fun environment, even more so if you enjoy sports & fashion
Sales Rep (Keyholder) (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 23 January 2017
It was a great job to work at. I've been interested in sports clothing & accessories since I was a little boy.
I learned a lot about the basic day in - day out operations of running a retail store & keeping business flowing smoothly.
I had a great relationship with my fellow co-workers & we always did our best to work together & achieve whatever it was that needed to be completed. As well as giving me a chance to be responsible on my own over the course of the 2 years I was there.
It also helped me more so with my sales knowledge & simple dealing with customers. Showed me that there was a definite demand for the products we were selling.
Manager (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 3 September 2016
This company is amazing to work for to start and learn. It has many opportunities to grow and move up withing the company. It's always easy to reach out and get help when ever needed, and they are constantly redeveloping to become even better.
