Used to be a great place to work.
Retail Level (Former Employee) – CT – August 6, 2018
LL bean used to be a fantastic place to work, good benefits, hours, and the discount used to be generous. But management has really changed the work environment. Paychecks are mailed late, shifts are assigned with a weeks notice, and management ignores suggestions to improve the store. Not very supportive, very passive aggressive and love to do a lot of micro-managing. Co-workers and some customers are great! Not the place to be working if you are trying to raise a family though or develop a career. Not very flexible, want you to have open hours, don't want to give overtime ever. With the new change in policy employees have to take on more responsibility and aren't being compensated for it in any way.
friendly supportive co-workers, great customers
breaks, low pay, no career advancement.
