Working here as a manager was a great experience. Lids has extremely conservative marketing strategies, so newer ideas are easily shot down by corporate.
They have an attractive rewards programs for its consumers, so that helps in driving sales to a positive scale.
District Managers are great! They will coach you along the way and help you succeed. They however are limited to Area Managers, which you only see once per quarter to point out the areas of opportunity but will not provide any support systems to better sales and workforce metrics.
Overall, its a great company to work for in the retail industry, but it is definitely not something you'd like to keep in the long run. Career growth happens for those who earn it :)
