    I have been working at Levi Strauss part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - 40% Discount Reg Price - One free item monthly for all employees if store sales goal is met - Good scheduling for students - Good quality material = happy long-term customers and less customer conflicts - Some nice co-workers

    Cons

    - 10% Off Sale Items - better to use a student/teacher/military discount for 15% off - Minimum wage and no commission despite having personal sales goals - Constant shortage of sizes available because popularity of items isn't really accounted for in shipments. Leads to loss of potential sales. - SEXISM - More hours given to men compared to women employees (despite full time availability for both parties). Men aren't expected to clean the store as much as the women are. Manager witnessed a male employee being rude to a female employee and turned a blind eye - If you are the same ethnicity as another employee but don't look remotely similar to them or have similar names to them, STILL expect staff to mix you up and call you by the wrong name (happened 5 times... not a one off incident). I've never experienced this at any other place I've worked, even places with huge staff turnover. Super weird and makes you feel super uncomfortable at the workplace. - Personal sale goals are absolutely GARBAGE. Encourages competition and tension in the workplace. Employees can be absolutely trash at being a respectful person to other staff, doing go-backs, helping with cleaning but the management does not care if they are making $$$$ for the store - Personal opinion but the clothes aren't even nice enough to buy even with the discount. Only thing worth it are the outerwear and jeans.
