Sales/Merchandizing (Former Employee), McLean, VA – December 26, 2013
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

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Long Beach, CA – February 18, 2014
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.
Large company but management treated people as equals

They recognized everyone's hard work. I had the opportunity to work closely with many categories including Men's, Women's and Accessories.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Pentagon City, VA – January 22, 2014
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. The company provided a blue print of display ideas with props which were a lot of fun to use i.e A directors chair, seashells and driftwood! I learned a lot on how to style men – more... and women here. I learned how to layer and how to add accessories accordingly. My favorite part was all the dressing up we did to learn about the product! The hardest part of the job was being able to – less

Pros: easy going down to earth company; bonuses
A typical day at work would be engaging with customers and making friends. At Lucky we find out customers lifestyles to suggest attire that suits their life on the go or at home.

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

Part Time Sales Associate (Current Employee), Tulalip, WA – September 3, 2013
Cons: short breaks, endless folding, store is never clean, etc.
Typically I come into work and I'm ready to get going, I have a plan in my head but sometimes it gets overruled as to how I am supposed to do things. Yesterday I learned how to make stacks of denim look nicer during recovery. Management makes me feel a little uncertain because of how some people do certain things and the way they look at how we help – more... customers makes me feel like they don't look at the job and how to treat the people we are selling to. My coworkers seem to lean on me a bit more than they should. The hardest part of the job would probably be trying to balance sales and recovery. The most enjoyable part would be what the discount for buying merchandise as an employee. – less
