I have a good rapport with my immediate manager, other managers and coworkers. They are all very friendly and provide a nice work environment. Time off is very flexible which allows for a good life balance.
In Store sales are negatively affected by increasing online sales
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 15, 2016
Poor pay, over work. Managers don't care about you. A very large company with too many associates to even consider. Worst retail job I've ever experienced. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless its part time and you want a discount.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Northbrook, IL – May 15, 2016
When i first began working here it was ok but I've realized they take advantage of those that work hard and praise those that don't. Very understaffed and the hours are crazy especially when there isn't a lot of business to begin with.

Area Sales Manager, Fine Jewelry/Watches (Former Employee) – Paramus, NJ – February 26, 2016
As a Lord & Taylor sales manager, you are faced with many day to day challenges. The company offers you numerous tools with which to accomplish these challenges. I enjoyed my co-workers who were always available for support. I thoroughly enjoy meeting new people and helping the general public. The hardest part of the job was finding dependable sales associates.
