poor management
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Bridgeport, CTApril 23, 2019
Ever since they hired a new manger the work environment sucks. Her attitude is poor and so is her work ethic. If she doesnt like you she will not treat you fairly and she likes to gossip like shes still in highschool.

Easy Job wouldn't recommend it for a career
Footwear Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Torrington, CTJanuary 19, 2019
Every day we would unpack and pack different shoe orders within the warehouse or we would pull from our backstock to be distributed to the different store locations. I learned how to run inventory and do a lot of the behind the scenes work for companies using warehouses. My managers were awesome and very willing to work with and your scheduling. They always kept the spirits high while ensuring the job got done. The workplace was pretty laid back and everyone got along really well. The hardest part of the job was the temperature affecting the heat or coldness of the warehouse. Most enjoyable part was taking the trips to do store openings because it was a refreshing change of pace.

very stressful
Store Manager (Current Employee) –  ConnecticutSeptember 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.
Pros
discount
Cons
healthcare, no advancement

Poor management and wages
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Hartford County, CTSeptember 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.
Pros
Discount
Cons
Poor management and no room for growth

I got this job so I could make money on the weekends and play sports at school but that didn't really work out, but its just your regular retail job that has a lot of culture to it.

Awful company to work for. Discrimination was a huge factor in why I left. The customers were very difficult to deal with and constant theft. No support from upper management!

Decent work place, bad management.
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Syracuse, NYNovember 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.
Pros
Discount
Cons
Not a lot of hours, management doesn’t know what they are doing

Productive working place
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  North Providence, RIJuly 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!

fun place to work
Store Manager (Former Employee) –  NYJuly 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.
Pros
Not pushy with add ons. Not so much micromanaging
Cons
communication is lacking from the top down to the bottom

Fun place to work
Third Key Manager (Former Employee) –  Waterford, CTJune 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.
Pros
Optional Paid break
Cons
short breaks, attracts a lot of rough clients

Easy, Relaxed workspace
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Brockton, MAMay 4, 2017
The most enjoyable part of the job is the customer interaction. On average you'd see about 70 people per day (usually fluctuates during holiday seasons), but the job is easy to learn.

Footwear Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Lawrence, MAMay 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.

Retail Family
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Trumbull, CTApril 25, 2017
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.
