Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – October 13, 2012
limited brands is a great company to work for costumer service and visual was my passion. I manage store as a acting store manager for a total of 9 months and was training new managers for district. I was not promoted for store manager due to my age at that time according to District Manager.
The manager is young, and new to the leading role. so there was a lot of back and forth between the other customer rep. The main manager kept talking about his old store I guess he felt nostalgia. They break there day into segments, and if you have the morning segment, and the customers that walk in arent converted into sales, you later have to explain why you didn't make that segment. Its retail.
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Altamonte Springs, FL – October 31, 2018
I loved to work there, I loved the people I worked with. But the management did not care about anyone but getting things done. Which is fine but at a certain point everyone was getting really sick because it was very dirty in there and also the AC would always go out sending a lot of people to the hospital.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 22, 2018
Beyond stressful, dealing with wacko customers, extremely low pay, doing more than being paid for. Being barked at for not getting a credit card and NOT ENOUGH HOURS!!! I sold $20,000 of stuff in 2 months and still won't Get HOURS! I AM THE TOP SALES PERSON! I should get more hours! Crappiest Pay in the world! I can not live on 9 hours a week! AND the hours are spread out so I waste even more gas! I CAN WORK 12 hours in one day no problem. but 9 hours a week? Really? Management wonders why people quit and call in because working there sucks especially if you have talent and can sell. The new update at Cashrap doesn't let anyone get credit for the stuff they sell. If I didn't have a stupid credit card to pay, I would have quit a long time ago.
Low pay, sucky team work, people call in, credit card crazy, and only 40% off.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Scranton, PA – October 15, 2018
This job was one of the best jobs I've had. The management was incredible, the culture was wonderful, and I was constantly moving. The only downside was getting paid so little and short shifts. I could not work a whole lot because of school, but enjoyed it nonetheless.
Sales Lead (Current Employee) – Minnetonka, MN – October 10, 2018
Starts as a fun and upbeat environment. If your dedication is noticed, management positions will open up to you quickly as long as there is a position available. No commission, just an hourly pay unless you are a co or store manager, then it is a salary pay. Competitiveness among other locations/districts. Constantly on your feet and running around besides your 30 minute break. Working weekends is a requirement.
District Manager (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – October 5, 2018
The company has great incentives and rewards top performers with a company retreat staying at 5 star hotels normally in West Palm Beach Fl. This job has a lot of stress and high expectations so you must be able to multi-task and be available 24-7. The company offers great onboarding and great people to work with. The culture has changed as the company has grown and new leaders have taken over. It is not bad, however could be better.
The most enjoyable part is the great people you will work with. Typical day is 12 hours and you are expected to be on top of business 7 days a week.
Compensation was fair, revolving door of DM was frustrating
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Mid Atlantic – September 29, 2018
It’s retail so of course weekends, evenings and holidays were expected. Company was very generous with employee benefits like health, dental and especially paid time off. All benefits started the first day. Some benefits were even available to part time employees. Mid level management (district) changed and with each change came a new set of expectations and different levels of “micro- management. The Brand itself was awesome, had a following of loyal customers both in the retail and the factory side of the business Bonus program was a joke. Paid out quarterly, most retail is paid monthly. The formula was very difficult to ever make and even if you did, the amount was usually less than $1000 for 3 months.
