Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – 18 April 2018
Lands End has taught me a lot about customer interaction. I enjoy meeting new people and learning new things everyday. Lands is filled with many people from very different backgrounds. The most enjoyable part of working at Lands End would be helping out customers and making them happy. The hardest part of working there would be learning to stock but overall I achieved my days goal.
Distributor Sales (Former Employee) – Dodgeville, WI – 17 April 2018
Packed and unpacked items to be stocked on shelves in warehouse. Received and counted stock items, and recorded data using computer. Examined and inspected stock items for wear or defects, reporting any damage to supervisors.
ok place to work but not much advancement opportunities. The company is basically dead on the retail side since moving into sears. the store I worked in was a beat down sears which is now closing. sad.
Packer/Shipper (Former Employee) – Dodgeville, WI – 4 April 2018
Working as a packer at Lands End, teaches you how to be fast and efficient when it comes to packing a certain amount of orders a day. You are to problem solve on your own when needed, and you are too make sure everything is in order for the next day. Fast is key to working for Lands End.
Customer Care Specialist (Current Employee) – Dodgeville, WI – 25 March 2018
I enjoy the people that I work with but am looking for a more challenging position. The job was suppose to be considered a flex job but they really aren't that flexable when it comes to working around certain hours.
Great Company, but stuck inside another failing one
SALES LEAD (Former Employee) – Springdale, OH – 20 March 2018
I love the Lands' End brand. They have a vision and know where they want to go. But they have hampered that vision by lingering in the toxic Sears environment. As a manager, I lost many valuable employees because they were not treated well by the Sears managers. I even lost some new hires because they were treated horribly by the Sears HR manager. So despite loving selling this brand and enjoying merchandising and floor sets, I had to leave. If this brand ever ends up in a stand alone store, I will be the first to hop back in.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Stevens Point, WI – 19 March 2018
I was a little frustrated that I was working close to full time hours, then hours were cut to 29 hours per week. I now have to find another part time job. During peak season hours are 40+ a week. I work from home, the job is otherwise great and would recommend it to anyone. A great company culture. Help from upper management is good. Pay is ok. Excellent job

Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Stevens Point, WI – 28 February 2018
Lands' End is by far my favorite company i've ever worked for. They truly care about you as a person and about your family life. They provide a lot of family orientated activities and discounts as well. The employees are wonderful.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Dodgeville, WI – 21 February 2018
juggling schedules learn to prioritize look ahead be yourself collaborate need to delegate always be positive relate to each person's character don't assume ask questions be alert act on demand separate business with home life have a home life be happy with what you are doing
A day at work proved to be very rewarding and productive. Throughout the day, you are kept busy between working on the presentation of the shop, attending to the needs of the customers and miscellaneous tasks. Specifically Lands' End management is very helpful and has always practiced stellar communication between upper management and store level employees. The most enjoyable part of the job is making it so that a customer can walk out of the shop feeling confident about what she has purchased and how she looks in it.
nice staff, but workpace either very busy, to busy, or to very quiet.
Warehouse Order Picker/Packer (Former Employee) – Rutland – 30 January 2018
Likes: nice friendly people in general, no chavs or riff raff. Management are fairly friendly, understanding, accommodating etc. Nice canteen with TV, quality food/value for money with staff discount. Clean toilets, washing facilities. Hours: could fall at either 06:45am start or 07:45am, finishing at 15:15pm/16:15pm. Some overtime may be offered during peak periods.
Dislikes: too large a segment of non-indigenous oversupplying the ability to sustain the work long-term for locals. Mngmt unevenly delegate workloads to staff doing exact same role. Pot luck on what you get given to do. If there's not enough work, you may go home early, without pay of course.
Breaks: 2x15min break either side of 1x30min lunch. However, sometimes the targets set make you so busy that if you fall behind, or need a toilet break, it may have a significant impact on the ability to reach your targets set for the hour, thus making you fall behind and creates a domino effect that becomes hard for you to claw back or redeem.
Picking is 423 labels/hour as per garment using a picking cart up one aisle and down another in a zig-zag fashion. It is not an easy job compared to some, you have to sweat. Packing is 100, which includes locating each item then working at a packing station to manually bag each item you've been to pick. This is a relatively easier task than Picking.
