Best Company to work for
Management (Former Employee), Aventura, FLAugust 21, 2014
I would not be anything today if I didn't start my career at Lord & Taylor in 1991. The company had a phenomenal management training program, great support system, great Corporate culture, they promoted me 9 times in 14 years, last position I held was Sr Management. I would still be working for L&T if they didn't divested in 2004. They offered a transfer in order to retain many of us, I could not relocate at the time, I hope to see them come back to S Florida. I would work for them again if given the opportunity.

Beauty Advisor (Former Employee), Chicago, ILAugust 19, 2014
Pros: experience
Cons: pay
Work to meet the sales goals daily. I learned more about skincare and makeup applications. My co-workers were nice to work with. The most challenging part of the job was trying to turn returns into a sale. The most enjoyable part was the quarterly training with new products and coming together with other reps from other locations and doing big events.

A typical day at Lord and Taylor
Sales Associate, Shoes Department (Current Employee), Huntungton, LI,NYAugust 14, 2014
A ten minute rally starts my day at Lord and Taylor at which the Manager discusses the previous day's sales statistics and the update on goals attained. Soon after the employees dispatch to their sales areas where cash registers are opened. I have learned a lot from the customers, specifically their needs and wants. Their personalities vary based on their likes and dislikes where it goes diametrically according to the merchandise, Management is very aggressive in demanding goals and metrics in sales categories. However each manager has a polite and friendly approach, My co-workers are very competitive which keeps me on edge and anxious to achieve my goal for the day. Hardest part of the job is the constant running back and forth to fetch items for customers while they patiently wait on te sales floor/ Also it is very hard to return to the customer after searching unsuccessfully to find their items. I enjoy learning the latest designs and the colors.

HRCoordinator
Human Resources Coordinator (Current Employee), Danbury, CTJuly 17, 2014
Pros: 25% discount, extra associate discount days
Cons: healthcare to only those who work 30 hours or more per week
A very busy office environment that involves supporting the executive team, ASM's and associates alike in a retail environment. I learned that it takes a real team to make a store run efficiently. I prefer not to discuss the executive management. My co-workers and ASM's are very hardworking, dedicated, loyal people. Trying to do 40 hours of work in only 30 hours is the hardest part of this job. The most enjoyable part of the job was planning events that showed appreciation to the many associates who make the store what it is.

Not so great
Sales Support/Associate (Former Employee), Stamford, CTJuly 17, 2014
Pros: working in stock better
Cons: pay lousy for high end store
Was all over the place
Kept getting bounced from department to department
Always got slow a lot
Had to make myself look busy when no one was around
Did better with the stock then with the customers
Too many snobby customers came in and bossed me around
Wonderful coworkers who I got along with great
Mangers were pretty decent and fair
I learned that customers can be super nasty and mean and sometimes just working in the back in better
Pay stunk for the type of job it is

It was fun... for retail.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Rockville, MDMay 12, 2014
Working at Lord and Taylor seems like it would be any ordinary retail job but it isn't. They expect the best out of you and need you to take initiative. To be able to work as a team is also a plus. Keeping a smile on your face is not as easy when you have unsatisfied customers but, my boss made created a great atmosphere for our department to work in.
