Store Manager (Current Employee) – Connecticut – September 16, 2018
They don't give you enough hours to get everything done operationally. They want us to be on top of every customer every second of the day, which would be fine if we didn't have to do markdowns, transfers, floor sets, merchandising directives and a whole bunch of other stuff while supposed to be driving sales.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Hartford County, CT – September 8, 2018
At first it seems like a great company but it’s a lot of gossiping and finger pointing. The company tends to treat their employees as if they don’t matter, will sweep things under the rug. If a manager doesn’t like you forget they will do anything to get you fired and corporate will believe everything they are being told. If you don’t make your yearly numbers your raise is pennies. No room for advancement what so ever.
Sales associate/ Cashier (Current Employee) – Pawtucket, RI – June 4, 2018
Great place to work. Co workers are all friendly, laid back job. Typical day at work includes talking to/helping customers, doing shipment. Management is really fair, friendly. Workplace culture is great.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Saugus, MA – January 24, 2018
While i was working at Eblens i felt really welcomed by the other employees. I made friends with most of the really fast. A few may have been older but still friendly. I recommend people who are good with working with costumer who need help.
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – November 21, 2017
Policies change depending on why you talk to, and when you talk to them. The better your manager, the better off you are. So, if your manager isn’t up to par then the team looks bad(Syracuse). Some of the people work with personal agendas, and prejudge a lot. From corporate to simple associates.
Not a lot of hours, management doesn’t know what they are doing
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – North Providence, RI – July 29, 2017
EbLens was a great opportunity. It's very flexible for those in school and allows opportunities for those to step up and become apart of the management team. Merchandising was fun and allowed you to set up the clothing in a way that was organized but caught customers attention!
Store Manager (Former Employee) – NY – July 21, 2017
Stores can go from being very busy to extremely slow. Customers can be a little hard to handle sometimes due to the crowd the company attracts. It is a relaxed atmosphere. Management knows everyone's name.
Not pushy with add ons. Not so much micromanaging
communication is lacking from the top down to the bottom
Third Key Manager (Former Employee) – Waterford, CT – June 6, 2017
This was a fun and relaxed place to work. There is always plenty to do and people to talk to. If you are into fashion and urban culture, this is definitely somewhere you can incorporate both into your work. There is also some room for creativity.
Footwear Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Lawrence, MA – May 3, 2017
The customers were all different some were very nice and courteous while others were very stuck up and rude. The management was professional to a certain extent but overall I believe I was underpaid for everything i did.
Working at Eblens was definitely a lot of work. A sales associate does everything from the cleaning of the store to selling the merchandise. It is a typical retail job with a sense of family due to how small the company is. Everyone knows everyone.
