Part Time Key Holder (Current Employee) – Sterling, VA – July 2, 2016
The company as a whole is good to work for but there are so many things to keep track of. Nonsensical papers and reviews to do. The CEOs or people making plans for the stores don't take into consideration how much that the workers at store level have to do.
Style Consultant (Current Employee) – Goodyear, AZ – April 26, 2017
I work part time, i love it. Helping people with feel better about themselves, and meeting new people is great. You have to be able to multi task. I deal with no less than 3 customers at a time. You have to be able to talk to each woman, find what they need, answer questions, know the products, ring on register and greet everyone that comes in...all in a timely matter. You can focus to much on one customer, but you have to make each one feel important and not rushed.
Fun place to work with nice employee discount. Typical day included organizing shelving, cleaning fitting rooms, and providing cashier duties. Management was accommodating of most schedule needs, you're expected to work most holidays however.
Part-Time Key Holder (Former Employee) – Albany, GA – April 24, 2017
All associates are trained on how to interact with customers and how to maintain the store. You have to have a sense of style because you will help customers with their clothes and/or undergarments. You will be required to sell undergarments as well, such as bras, underwear, Spanx, etc. Must be a team player. Also you have to talk about the company credit card.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Canton, MI – April 23, 2017
When you get a customer dressed from head-to-toe and she feels like the queen it is the best feeling in the world. You are able to get discounts and learn about the clothing of Lane Bryant from the passports and clothing surveys given by the company.
Working at lane Bryant was a very fun environment. I love meeting new people and interacting with all kinds of different people. The management was awesome and I loved everyone there. This place is a great place to work!
Stylist (Former Employee) – Strongsville, OH – April 18, 2017
A typical day would be putting out new merchandise or making replenishments. Creating an environment comfortable for women of all sizes. The most enjoyable part was being around confident women who make you feel inspired.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Tukwila, WA – April 17, 2017
A typical day is keeping the store in a professional appearance. I learned to get customers to apply for LB credit cards. The management was amazing. It was all about team building and making the sales for the day.
Key Holder (Former Employee) – New Jersey – April 13, 2017
If you are looking to move up within a company, this is not the company for you. They like to short changes the employees, they do not support "confidentiality" and they will consistently attempt to push you out the door without firing you so that they do not have the "revolving door" aspect within their company. Their management staff is told to treat accountability 2nd to profits. And if you do not fall in line with 100% of their "culture" you are considered a threat.
Flexible hours, movement to keyholder
Complete lack of support, no confidentiality with management
Seasonal worker for the holidays (Former Employee) – Vestal, NY – April 13, 2017
Lane Bryant was a very nice company that allowed me to gain the experience I needed in the clothing industry it also allowed me to get over my shyness if you will when talking to people outside of my comfort zone it was a very nice place to work for
Manager (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – April 10, 2017
I've worked at multiple locations and I can honestly say if you are a people person and enjoy socializing its a good job. But the dynamic of the staff will effect how someones personal experience will be.
Typical retail employer. Expectations were a little ridiculous (email collection, and getting customers to sign up for store credit cards). Start pay is really low only bout 75 cents more than minimum wage for sales associates
