Sales Associate (Current Employee), Greensboro, NC – December 22, 2013
I love working at Lids. The environment is fun and friendly. You get to see so many faces and meet so many new people. I enjoy being around my coworkers. I think it is a great job but as far as trying to make a living from working there it will never work. Being that it is retail its so hard to get consistent hours.
FULL TIME ASSISTANT MANAGER (Current Employee), Valencia, CA / Bakersfield, CA – December 12, 2013
Loved the retail and Management side of this job. Just became way too big of a daily commute for me. I started in Valencia and transferred to Bakersfield. Then I moved and was driving 2 hours from Lake LA to Bakersfield.

Pros: mall atmosphere
Cons: not all sports teams available

Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Bloomington, MN – December 6, 2013
I learned how to properly and successfully run a business to increase greater profit margins, also how to properly record and keep track of all inventory, and learning how to perform custom embroidery. The best part of the job was working with the general public learning the ins and outs of management logging payroll and completing scheduling for the – more... entire store. – less
Sales associate (Current Employee), las vegas , nv – November 23, 2013
Lids created a very enjoyable work environment. On a day to day basis I meet people from all over the world and help find products they desire. I strive to learn how the company operates and am dedicated to helping the commpany grow.
Good place to work, there is some opportunity to advance, but not too often
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Sanford, FL – November 8, 2013
The job is definitely up and down. You can have days when there were no customers, and then days when your sales were through the roof. I loved my boss, and we're still good friends, however the other worker often times was lazy, late, and the district manager didn't really seem to care much that we were having so many problems with him. It's a fun – more... environment, and there aren't really any hard parts to the job, but it can definitely make you feel a sense of comfort in your job security, and you can become complacent. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Wayne, NJ – October 21, 2013
I didn't find this job fun or nice work at but it was a good experience. a typical day at work would consist of people just browsing and asking questions. it was easy. a bit too easy. I don't find a challenge in that. What got me annoyed the most is that the management was too lazy to teach me how to work the cash register. i wanted to work but all – more... i was able to do was help customers find a hat in a small store where everything's right there. So it was very unchallenged for me. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Atlanta, GA – September 29, 2013
Cons: everything except 40% discount.
I worked at Lids in Atlanta for a little over a year with no opportunity for advancement being payed part-time minimum wage. The management is a joke, corporate is a joke. The entire operation is ridiculous, from the organization to the staff to the pay to the job expectations. Retail for dummies.
Store Manager (Former Employee), Saint Clairsville, OH – September 28, 2013
Over worked under paid. not much help from the upper management, I had very little DM interaction. Which with DM I had that isn't such a bad thing. Regional Manager was great just wish he would have been a little more hands on. They only care about #'s, people don't matter. I'd work there part time but never in management Mostly for the Discount (40% – more... off). They just expect way too much but offer no help. Working in a smaller store Payroll hours were slim had to pull a lot of open to closes just to have double coverage when I needed it. But yet they want to control shrink but when there is only one person in the store trying to help customers, use embroidery machine, and ringing people out. – less
