      Pros

      -Lots of responsibility -Ability to share your own ideas

      Cons

      -Unpredictable hours (no work-life balance whatsoever) -Unreasonable expectations (prepare to cancel your doctor's appointment if it interferes with a meeting or shift!!) -Intense, long hours, often times with no breaks (illegal!) -MESSY work environment. The back office and stock rooms are a disaster. Bathroom had never been cleaned. -No structure. My manager unfortunately had to take some time off to deal with a family emergency, and the whole store went up in flames. There was no business protocol with how to deal with this. They relied on us to pick up extra shifts and stay HOURS after closing to get everything done. There were days I worked 14 hour shifts. -Intense environment: very serious about "The LF Experience", which means you are EXPECTED to have long, thorough styling sessions with every single person that walks through the door, regardless of if they seem uncomfortable. -Overall, this job took a huge toll on my mental and physical health, and I had to resign.

      Pros

      Once finished with the training (which does tend to be informal) I had a great experience. I felt like there was a lot of room to grow and that they treated the employees very fairly. Although the hours were long, everyone working was always super encouraging and I met some great girls there. I feel like the negative reviews that LF gets are because many people don’t realize that it’s not a normal retail job. They do expect you to build clients and style people so being an outgoing person and/or “go getter” is a must. Overall, you get what you put in with this company.

      Cons

      The long hours and taking time off can be difficult.
