Assistant Manager/Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – February 3, 2015
I enjoyed working at EB for the most part. When I first started working there, they were all about having fun while selling. But they later had a change over in management, and decided to press the associates for goals. Some of the stores would go for periods with no store managers or would go through multiple ones in a year. My co-manager and I had to do the work of 5 supervisory roles with the 2 of us and a key holder for the majority of a year. But we sure did it. And I loved working with regular customers, teaching associates how to sell and meet goals. Plus, EB has a long and awesome history.

From corporate to store management, they expect to much to be done with the dwindling resources the company still has. Compensations good but the stress that goes along with working here is not worth it.
Part Time Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – September 7, 2017
The atmosphere was really good due to great managers and co-workers. The relationship building opportunities were very educational and insightful. As far as retail sales go, it was a good, clean and upscale place to work.
There is plenty of opportunity for advancement. The people were very friendly and helpful. Everyone that I came in contact with were team players passionate about internal and external customer service.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Retail – August 29, 2017
Eddie Bauer makes the best clothes hands down. The retail division is improving and becoming more of a performance apparel company (like it should have always been) and less of an old lady sweater store (which it sadly became)
Great people and improving products
Some of the corporate people are pretty out of touch
Fast paced work enviorment. Great managment training.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Edina, MN – August 11, 2017
Great benefits! Awesome competitive pay and work enviornment! Friendly staff members and great oppurtunites for managment training, Great place to do team building and work independent managment projects.
A typical day at work would include coming in and opening the store and getting things set up for the day and setting up goals for the day and then closing the store and getting things cleaned up. I learned a lot about management and competition in selling and selling key points. I loved working for this company
