Cool place
Sales Lead (Current Employee) –  Annapolis, MDJuly 31, 2015
This is only my second job in retail but I have to say, the only reason that I have remained for as along as I have, is because it is a pretty nice place to work. The pay is competitive to other retailers & they offer excellent benefits. For example you can join 401k, if you are full time you qualify for health benefits, sales leads earn PTO etc.
Management team is usually pretty good with helping you balance real life & work.
The only downside is the teams are small so if someone calls out sick & it's your day off, you will be the first person called on.
Pros
Paid time off
Cons
Floorsets on holidays

Standard warehouse Job
Warehouse associate (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KYJune 8, 2015
This job was very typical. There was no seniority based, everyone did the same thing except for a few selected others. I learned how to prepare orders and ship them out. I got along very well with the management team. I also got along with most of my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was the repetitiveness. Running around a warehouse picking orders into a cart for 8 straight hours. What I enjoyed most of the job was the benefits, and schedule flexibility.

Bad
Sales Associate (Seasonal) (Former Employee) –  Wrentham, MAAugust 18, 2016
Customers are very rude. Management expects you to spoon feed the customers everything. Very very slow. At slow times its extremely boring. Little pay. Rude employees and management. Store manager is rude, judgemental, snotty.

Retail
Sales Associate, Retail Salesperson (Former Employee) –  Bethesda, MDJanuary 6, 2016
Job duties included ensuring high levels of customer satisfaction through excellent sales service. This encompassed answering customer questions concerning location, price and use of merchandise, accepting payment and completing financial transactions, and wrapping or bagging merchandise for customers.

Managed and organized store products ensuring products were in-stock and in presentable condition during customer facing hours. This entailed stocking shelves, counters or tables with merchandise, setting up advertising displays or arranging merchandise on counters or tables to promote sales, and keeping the store clean and orderly.

The pay is nice, and all the benefits that comes with it as well. The environment of the work place not so great.
District Mangers that do not listen to their employees or take them professionally.

Would not reccomend
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHFebruary 4, 2016
Work is very catty, no encouragement, hard to advance unless you are a good friend to management. The customers are very sweet and fun to work with, but management can ruin that as well. The biggest issue is the return policy being too flexible.
Pros
customers
Cons
return policy, co workers, management.

Fun atmosphere
Sales associate (Former Employee) –  Hackensack, NJMarch 5, 2015
Relaxed work place with little to no pressure. Downside was the cut in hours the company established about a year after I worked there. Floor sets were required on holidays which was inconvenient. Raises are almost impossible to receive. Mystery shoppers come once a month with no notice which was extremely dreadful. Management and district managers were great.

long ago, it was a great place to work.
Customer Service Asst. Mgr, Returns Dept Mgr (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORAugust 5, 2013
I was the 8th employee hired. The company grew in leaps and bounds. The Swedish design was primary colored eye candy and the offices were modern in a turn of the century Bicycle Factory building. The owners were very caring individuals and wanted to share their great success with the employees who helped make it a success. The health and child care benefits were very generous.
Cons
there was never a lack of growth in the company, the growing ranks of employees meant some of the earlier camaraderie to make things work was lost

Poor management, immature staff.
Sales Lead (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CANovember 2, 2015
Management needs work and so does customer service. The staff, sales leads included, are immature, very cliquey and similar to high school mean girls. They're constantly on their phones or rapping songs or talking about who they're currently dating. The customers that shop there are overall great, understanding, patient.
Cons
No structure

Small easygoing place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAOctober 2, 2015
Easygoing place to work for not always all about the sales but about the productivity and upkeep of the store. Good and clear guidelines. Most colleagues were patient enough to show step by step instructions if something was unclear. Decent amount of work to do, not too overwhelming. There was always something to do at work.
Pros
Paid sick leave, and chances to move up in the company
Cons
No flexibility with school hours and not honorable of a person's availability, not a professional work enviornment

Typical corporate ran retail store
Sales Leader (Current Employee) –  N/AMarch 16, 2015
I have been with Hanna Andersson for over a year in the retail division. There is no reason to sugar code this job. They start you out as a sale associate for a few pennies above minimum wage.
They want you to work 12-18 hours and be available 7 days a week for opening and closing shifts. This is 100% unrealistic. Typically, the sale associates will be college students looking for part time work.

Now, lets say you are actually looking for a real job. Well, enjoy hustling to get more than 18 hours. After you start averaging out 18 hours a week, don't be surprised if your manager schedules you for less than 12 hours one week to put your average back down.

Okay, so being a sale associate does not work and you decided to move up... Well the next step in your luxurious career will be as a Sales Leader. You are NOT manager, as you will be reminded from your DM and store manager... despite having duties and the responsibilities of a manager. You will get a dollar bump in wage and about 100x more the responsibilities. However, you now work 18-29 hours in a week. Management goes out of his/her way to make sure you are under 32 hours as a Sale Leaders because that would mean they would have to pay you health benefits.

If you are lucky enough to work up to 32 hours a week, and qualify for Hanna Andersson's horrible benefit package, then congrats! You are officially stuck in a dead end position where you can move up to maybe one day manage your own store in some amazing mall in who-cares, USA.

This job/type of work is good for a few types of people. I would not trust management,
  more... as most of them are corporate yes men. Do not work there with hopes of getting a corporate job as they are extremely exclusive.

Retail is truly easy to work, essentially as long as you are a moderately intelligent and personable human-being, you will find success. But otherwise, it truly is a horrible and disgusting place to work.

Pros

The company is amazing they do everything they can to make their customers happy. The job enviroment at the time was very hostile. When you are working you need to make sure you are not uncomfortable.

Great Place to work
Sales Leader (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WAJune 21, 2015
All tiers of management, from store level all the way to top of the company, genuinely care about their employees. Company is family friendly to work for. Managers were always more than willing to work around my family's schedule.
Pros
transportation & daycare reimbursement
Cons
pay is a little low
