Part Time Key Holder (Current Employee) – Sterling, VA – July 2, 2016
The company as a whole is good to work for but there are so many things to keep track of. Nonsensical papers and reviews to do. The CEOs or people making plans for the stores don't take into consideration how much that the workers at store level have to do.
Loved working here. The manager is the district training manager and she is fantastic. Loved the coworkers. Scheduling was inconsistent but the manager was more than willing to accommodate requests for time off.

The amount of customer service that LB wants you to provide is top of the line, over the top for MINUMUM RAGE!!!! I was Climbing, lifting, fitting, cleaning, searching stock and online for 7.25!!!! Waste of time for sure. They also have the nerve to require you to get CC. FOR NOTHING! Total trash. What I made in a day cost less than one t shirt in that store.
Very easy peasy job. If you like dealing with mostly women this is the place for you. Pay could be better, no benefits unless you are full time. Better have comfy shoes because you are on your feet constantly. Always something to do to keep busy like doing shipments or resetting the store ALOT. Key holders are PT and FT and pay not much more but if someone calls off you could be working a 12 hr or more shift. Great 50% off reg prices discount for employees here and with rest of ASCENA brands. Free clothes when new launches occur(free jeans, bras, underwear etc.) Manager has been good but she can show favoritism with hrs at times. You will have to work days afternoons and close too.
Free stuff Great dscounts Easy Peasy work
pay is low for what you do, hrs can suck(retail hrs) your feet will hurt
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – February 5, 2019
I was a greeter who informed customers of sales at the start of the day. I was also a cashier, maintained the floor, fitting room attendant, and personal shopper in a way to customers. Hardest part of the job is meeting credit goals since some days are slow. Sales goals are easy if you love fashion and helping people shop for themselves. Only left cause of the hours.
Free meals, always something to do, some benefits for long term employees
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Centralia, WA – February 5, 2019
This job is all about customer service. It's great when someone comes in exasperated and frustrated because she "can't find anything that looks right" and she leaves with a smile and feeling great about herself.
Working at Lane Bryant, you will develop personal relationships with customers. Being that Lane Bryant caters to curvier women, we provide a very comfortable environment for women of various shapes to shop.

Lane Bryant was a fun, laid back job that helped me through college. My manager and coworkers were pleasant to work with. It was encouraging to work with women who looked like me and who enjoyed helping other plus sized women look their best.

I worked with some great ladies and some not so great ladies. I was weekly made to lift heavy mannequins, when I asked why me I was told it was because I was tall and I did it so well. I got a second job because I wasn't get the hours i wanted and i was told by the store manager i had to choose. So i put in a two week notice. I still love the store and am still close with the ladies I worked with.
Discount. Free stuff. Work with awesome ladies, help people.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – January 16, 2019
the questions above has nothing to do with the Lane Bryant retail store. i was manager, where i had to do the bank deposit and make a list of things that needed to be done and what section the employees will be working. make sure that the store is clean and ready for opening and cleaned for the next day, setting up all the registers with the correct amount of money for the day. had to count down the safe twice a day to make sure no money is missing, if there was a unhappy customer then i helped to make that customer happy by giving a discount. Making sure my balance sheet is correct from the night before. closing out the registers. Working the stock room
getting a long with all the employees
new employees getting paid more than me and i was a manager
