Pros: free food on special occasions, employee discounts
Cons: lots of standing/walking.
Overall, Loft has a great feel. Working there has been a pleasure and especially at a busy store. A typical day at work includes greeting the customers, letting them know about any promotions or sales going on that day, offering to start a fitting room if they have picked out several items, keeping up with the client, offering styling advice, and finally proceeding to check out. On a busy day each team member may play only a few of these rolls, but on slower days one employee may do all of the above. I have learned a lot about customer service, keeping personal and business life separate, putting the customer first, and how to better my communication skills. My coworkers are great. Since we don't work on commission it creates a more relaxed environment and promotes teamwork. My managers are all very knowledgeable about the goals and product of our company. My store manager is amazing. She strikes the perfect balance between being a good boss and being pleasant to work with. If you are looking for a job, the Loft is definitely somewhere to consider. The hardest part of the job is working with unreasonable clientele, however, the majority of the clientele that I have faced are pleasant. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with and establishing relationships with our loyal clients!
