Operations Manager (Former Employee), Lafayette, LASeptember 13, 2014
Pros: learned a lot and loved the culture and environment
Cons: differences of managerial style can sometimes cause conflict
Getting back into Store Management with Lane Bryant was a very positive experience. It was probably the best choice I could have made. I learned a lot and met some pretty incredible people... that included our team and our clients.

Did not enjoy working here
Retail Salesperson (Former Employee), Winston-Salem, NCSeptember 9, 2014
Pros: i loved doing what i did as far as the job went
Cons: poor management
I did not enjoy working here at Lane Bryant because the staff were very childish and were not professional at all. I was told in the beginning that there was no he said she said things to go on and so I felt as though it would be a great work environment and it wasn't. I got to the point where I dreaded going to work. I loved doing my job by helping – more... the customers but both Lane Bryants' I worked at were very unprofessional when it came to management and how they ran things. – less

Lane Bryant workplace
STOCK ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), Wilmington, DEAugust 31, 2014
A typical day at work would be clocking in, checking the list of what tasks needed to be done for the day. processing all of the shipment coming in. Censoring all of the items based on price, and hanging up garments to be set out on to the sales floor. Cleaning and maintaining stock room and rest rooms. Taking apart all cardboard and setting out trash – more... for take out.

What I have learned working here is how to take on more responsibility that is required for this type of job. You have to be constantly on your feet and fast paced to keep up with the heavy work loads.
The management is pretty tight although there are some days where communication is an issue. I do love working with all of my co-workers. They are friendly and easy to talk to for the most part. Everyone is helpful to me.
The hardest part of the job is getting and keeping enough hours. It's very unpredictable every week. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with really great people. – less

Enjoyable work place with helping customers
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Hickory, NCAugust 28, 2014
supplying store with new cloths, helping customers with finding the correct clothing for them in size. Management is always there for you to help where help is needed. Co-workers are fantastic people to be around. I enjoy helping people find clothing that looks good on them and increases there self esteem.

Overnight Stock Associate (Current Employee), New York, NYAugust 25, 2014
Pros: great discounts
Cons: short schedule
A typical day for a stock team member starts at noon, in which shipment is received accounted for and placed. Product is sorted, tagged, and placed in the stock room. Learned a new system for product ordering. The stock team is small consisting of only 3 people which was nice because we all got along well and respected each other. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job is when we can complete an entire delivery which is also the hardest. – less

Temporary fix
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Waldorf, MDAugust 20, 2014
Pros: discounts on clothes.
Cons: short breaks, little hours, no room for advancement. under appreciated.
I would only suggest working at Lane Bryant if you are looking for a job just to pay for little things. You will not get a lot of hours. You will deal with managers who take themselves and their jobs to seriously. And you will deal with unnecessary drama. I have worked at other retail jobs and this is by far the only one that I honestly hated going – more... to when I eventually did get hours. ( the store manager only gives people she likes all the hours) on The company hires for management positions externally. So there is no room for advancement. The pay is above minimum wage. but still not enough to get your bills paid. You will do typical retail work, fold clothes, help customers and work an outdated register. – less

Sales Lead Manager (Former Employee), Denver, COAugust 19, 2014
Pros: meeting multiple personalities daily, delegating tasks, and the flexibility in my work schedule.
Cons: the only problem seemed to be age discrimination, i was the youngest manager working at the time being.
My favorite job consisted of handling multiple tasks throughout my day. I grew very comfortable having extensive lists to complete. My co-workers were not accepting to the fact that I was a very young manager at the time being. This job has allowed me to adjust to numerous unfamiliar changes within a company. I have developed the ability to multi-task, – more... act as a chameleon in my work environment, and maintain great customer service. – less

Key Holder (Former Employee), Slidell, LAAugust 19, 2014
Pros: opportunity for advancement, employee coupons to shop
Cons: standing long periods of time, staying after closing for floor sets
This was by far my favorite place to work. Sometimes the hours were long during the holidays but it was all worth it. My team was like a family we worked so well together. Probably the hardest part of the job was putting together the floor set for upcoming promotions, you had to climb these extremely long latters but once it was finished it was worth – more... the sweat. I learned so much about responsibility at this job how to keep track of paper work, signs, and other things. Really great place to work. – less

Co Manager (Former Employee), Draper UtahAugust 18, 2014
Pros: excellent work environment, close knit clientelle
Cons: this is a store for plus size women, and i being a 00, clients were apprehensive to take advice from me at first.
This job was extremely rewarding. They hold all other clothing stores to a higher standard and it truly is a great experience working for this company. They treat their employees with respect and teach their employees very valuable life skills along with tried and true sales techniques. I would recommend this store to any shopper or potential employee.

Lane Bryant is a retail clothing store for plus sized women. Outside of hands on customer service, I loved that during this job I could actually see transformations in women's lives on a daily basis.

Fun and exciting but unstable
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Manassas, VAAugust 15, 2014
Pros: discount, friendships
Cons: poor pay, not enough hours, poor management
Let me start off by saying that I love lane Bryant and what it stands for. When I came to lane Bryant 2yrs and 3mon ago, I had no idea just how much of an impact this place and the people who worked there would have on my life. I forged many friendships that have lasted even after many of us have moved on. I learned valuable retail experience and am – more... eternally grateful for it. Now, to the bad things and the overall reason for why I chose to leave lane Bryant. I worked for a double platinum store that was high volume. The scheduling of only 2 people at any given time was one of the first things that lane Bryant messed up. How can they expect employees to properly maintain store cleanliness, attend to shipment, complete projects, help customers, open fitting rooms, and ring up customers in line, when there are only 2 people working. This scheduling matrix does not work. Secondly, why must stores continue to hire employees when the associates working there aren't even getting hrs. The hours fluctuate so much that one week you might have 8hrs and the next you might have 25. If you have bills to pay like I do, I suggest you get a full time job and make lane Bryant your part time job. Thirdly, lane Bryant cannot keep employees, especially management. My store went through 3 managers, and 4 district managers in 2 years. Fourth, during my time at lane Bryant, I only ever saw a .22 cent raise, this was especially disappointing to me because I was commuting an hour and a half as a sales associate making only $9.22 an hr with 2.3 years of experience. – less
