Pros: fun, laid back, great people, great discounts
Cons: short breaks, not enough customers, very numbers driven
Lucky Brand was a great company to work for, and I was very lucky to work with the people there. We went through quite a few management changes in the short time that I was there, but the store was always running fairly smoothly.
At this job I learned how to follow visual directives given by corporate and how to substitute and improvise when the directives – more... don't match up to our stores inventory.
The hardest part of the job was that although we didn't receive commission, all of the sales associates had numbers and goals to make and these goals were instrumental to make, because not reaching them could lead to termination. The problem with this was that on most days, there were more sales associates than customers in the store. It was hard to make goal with minimal foot traffic, and to be pitted against each other in getting sales.
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to work with the great co-workers and managers I had, and being able to help with the visuals and floor plans in the store. – less
