Customer Service at its best!
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Waterville, MESeptember 18, 2014
Pros: friendly and helpful
I worked for L.L.Bean for over 10 years and was a great experience. The call center I worked at closed the doors in 2010 and although I was offered to work from home doing the same job I made the decision to take severance and leave. I am a people person so working alone doesn't suit me well. The company trained their employees to expect nothing but – more... exemplary customer service. I believe that skill made me a better person. There were bonuses and raises almost every year. I worked set hours and was able to train for other positions during the busy holiday season. – less

a really good place to work
Packer, Pack Support (Former Employee), Freeport, MEJuly 8, 2014
Pros: the employee store
Cons: ....it is in maine, in winter.
A typical day at Beans begins at about 7:30 A.M. with greetings and preparations for the 8A.M. shift. If packing, I sign on the computer I will be using, then fill the tape machine with water, stock flyers and other material to be included with each order, prepare, stock and clean my workspace. At 7:55 I punch in on the computer and begin packing the – more... customers' orders as the material comes down the chute. I continue this throughout the day. Correcting errors, inspecting the materials, Keep the paperwork together with the orders. During the day, if I am pack support, I circle the 1/4 mile pack line with cardboard, bags, tape, flyers and my attention to each packers need.
This includes many packers from cultures far different than my own. I think that because Beans is committed to diversity in the workplace, I have had the opportunity to work and support and respect those whose lives have been very different than my own.
I give credit solely to the leaders, administrators and executives of this company for my own life enhancing experience.
I love my co-workers. Having, by personal circumstance, to move from Maine to Washington State I miss each of them personally.
The hardest part of this job while packing, is ATTENTION in a very busy, fast moving workplace. When support...I loved doing support. It even kept me in shape!
The best part of that job, hands down, are the people who work there. – less
