Exciting place to work.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Orlando, FLJanuary 16, 2014
Pros: fun work environment
Lids is an awesome place to work. I would come in and just talk to customers about what sports they liked and I marketed all the products i thought they would like. I've learned many new things about working there,gaining experience working was the major learning experience. I also learned to be more social and how to sell many items.The managers and – more... co-workers are more like friends to me then co-workers.The job was mostly fairly simple. I enjoyed selling products that customers didn't even look at. – less

Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), Kenner, LAJanuary 15, 2014
Pros: laid back environment, not demanding, discounts on store items
Cons: unexpected projects
A typical day a work would include opening the store, doing maintenance on the various equipment in the store, doing follow ups on customer returns, and inventory control. I loved the fact that that I was able to meet new people and help them choose a hat the fit them and their personality. Working for LIDs helped me sharpen my people and interpersonal – more... skills. – less

Enjoyed working there due to job security
Part-Time Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Bellevue, WAJanuary 9, 2014
I worked at Lids for 2 years on and off during breaks from school and there were always hours for me whenever I wanted to come back. The pay was not great and it is relatively unclear whether there are prospects for advancement within the company. I know that I enjoyed being with my co-workers on daily basis and being around them made me a better salesman.

Fun place to work at, nice and fun co workers as well as most management .
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Ocoee, FLDecember 26, 2013
Pros: flexibility, decent pay, sure advancement
Cons: limited hours
Typical day consist of doing daily counts, helping customers. The only things learned would be any extra knowledge that needs to be known as a new manager. The hardest thing if any would be keeping accessory sells up and being your own security while very busy. The most enjoyable thing would be the staff.

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Greensboro, NCDecember 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.
