Store Manager (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – April 12, 2016
Working at Lucy is great because of the flexible schedule, dress code, and culture. Advancement opportunities from Sales Associate to Supervisor to Assistant Manager can be easy and quick as long as you work hard and consistently engage with customers. Moving up to Store Manager position is difficult as it is based on if the District Manager likes you, so make sure you build a great relationship early on.
Flexible schedule, awesome discount, great work environment
Assistant Manager does just as much as Store Manager but for less pay.
Was a great place to work until management changed
Manager (Former Employee) – Maryland – October 3, 2016
This was an awesome place to work for many years, until someone under qualified was promoted to district manager. Several store managers left because of it, shift leads who originally refused to work more than 15-20 hours a week were getting promoted to ASMs... the place turned into a joke. I've heard through the grapevine that it's gotten worse since. I loved working with all my managers prior to this change, & it seemed everyone else did as well. It's too bad. VF is a good company, as long as you steer clear of lucy!
The company wide discounts, the customer base, company culture, salary isn't bad for retail

you will feel part of a team at lucy. they will work with your schedule and make sure that you are getting as many or as little hours as you require. switching shifts or finding coverage is never a problem, and you will feel motivated to be a great salesperson.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – January 22, 2015
The hardest part of this job was the monotony. There were days when only five or six customers came in during a shift. It was a low-stress job I got after moving back to town after two years. I met some great people, learned a lot about yoga wear, and waited six months for a promised promotion that ended up last minute being given to an outside-hire. I've heard of multiple employees strung along only to be passed over.
Great discount, flexible hours
Uncommunicative corporation, constant turn-over, no room for creativity or any ideas other than those sent directly from corporate
Supervisor (Former Employee) – arlington, VA – December 8, 2014
There's a work , life balance here you don't ever feel over worked.Management was great i never feel like i can't talk to them certain situation or concern.Also i learned stronger communication skills will allow a salesperson to recognize and adapt a sales presentation for the various types of customers.
everyday you wear comfortable cloth, and great discount
our store was kind of slow store, i like being busy
Part-Time Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Manhattan Beach, CA – July 14, 2014
Good experience and training for a first retail job.
Treatment of employees was fair. Reasonable hours and breaks were managed well by store manager and supervisors. Employee expectations were sometimes unreasonable and feedback was not constructive as it came too late or was not consistent.
Good place to work, but not great.
Good product, Employee discount, Fair wage
Have to buy own uniform (store product) which is necessary for work
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Santa Barbara, CA – March 17, 2014
Enjoyable first retail job. Management is excellent and always helpful, never condescending or patronizing. The product is amazing and therefore fun to sell. Hardest part of the job was that it was somewhat slow-paced most of the day but that's not necessarily a bad thing, but it can be boring.
Employee discount, breaks are mandatory, good employee culture
Boring, somewhat difficult to advance without prior experience
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Corte Madera, CA – February 11, 2014
Working at Lucy has been a great experience. It is so fulfilling to have a customer who walks in the door with a negative body image leave the store feeling great about the merchandise that she bought that is going to help her achieve her goals of living an active lifestyle.
Receiving Clerk/ PTL Operator (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – June 27, 2013
My typical day at work (after being placed into a couple of different departments) was to walk up an down a line placing pieces of clothing into boxes to be shipped to Lucy stores across the nation. I think that the one thing that I learned is that it is better to double check everything as I do it. Management was small- 4 people. They were relaxed, and were always great about giving credit to jobs well done. We always knew what was happening within the company through our monthly meetings. My co-workers were an amazing group of people to work with. They all fostered a "work hard but have fun doing it" attitude. There really was no hard part of my job, other than learning the bus system in a new city and state. The most enjoyable part of my job was the interaction with the people I worked with.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Natick, MA – April 3, 2013
This was a seasonal job where I would work from april-september at a garden center. I was responsible for taking care of two greenhouses and several water beds filled with various plant species. I now have a lot of acquired knowledge regarding water species, plant pest management and water landscaping.
Retail Store Manager (Former Employee) – Alameda, CA – August 30, 2012
Responsible for all aspects of store management including sales, P&L, operations, customer service, staffing, associate development, merchandising assortment, and inventory control. Manage a team of 15-35. Good customer service culture, strong product and a strong team environment.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – August 1, 2012
As a sales associate, I am responsible for excellent customer service, having extreme product knowledge, maintaining the sales floor and helping with closing task. I have learned a lot about Lucy's specialty fabrics and how they work well for the activities the customers are interested in. the staff is fun and easy to get along with. and the most enjoyable part about the job is the light competition to make your sales goal for the day to help the store make day.
