Store Manager (Former Employee), Canada – October 29, 2012
Cons: long hours, hard to reach support, staff is pre-hired and crookish like their past manager
They will promise that you as a manager can control the store functions and how your business evolves, but they will turn around and think of you as yet another individual trying to scam the company. During your worst time they will come across as a company that is trying to scam you, so make sure you take great points right away and ensure that you – more... go by the book from the start. Get things in writing from them. – less

Key Holder (Current Employee), Canoga Park, CA – March 10, 2014
Pros: 50% off anything in the store
Really a great place to work. A typical day at work in management includes overseeing the sales floor and pushing volume. Co-workers have been mostly great. The most difficult thing to get used to here for me was the coaching. They are really big on figuring out what you could've done to make the sale better.

Cons: management wasnt the best, but sufficed for what it was.
I truly enjoyed working for this company, I felt I was able to take what I learned from the Gap and really utilize them. Doing task like floor sets and executing all the visual displays throughout the work time was great.

Pros: free lunches
Cons: spent a lot of money on clothing!
Almost every two weeks a new style would arrive in the store. Along with the other managers we would style up the mannequins and show off our work in our huge window displays.

Pros: product, customer base, discount
Cons: drastic changes in management, control of company keeps changing hands
This was the first job I ever had and it taught me everything I know today. I was lucky to have an amazing store manager and assistant store manager. The district manager also made a point to consistently check in with us to touch base. There's an amazing discount, the product is easy to sell because it's quality denim, the customers were always a blast, – more... and it was a professional environment with being micro-managing. – less
Company has great culture, quality clothes and awesome discounts!
Store Sales Manager (Former Employee), New York, NY – December 2, 2013
Working for Lucky Brand was a great experience. It is retail so naturally there will be long hours, unique customers and sometimes thankless efforts from upper management. Thankfully I'm positive so I can handle pressure when dished! District manager and other store managers were very supportive and we seem to have each others backs...especially when – more... stores needed extra people for coverage. – less
