    I worked at Levi Strauss part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You are updated on the latest jean trends, you can get discounts when you buy products from the store, the employees are really friendly.

    Cons

    It is sometimes hard to reach for some clothing when the jeans are on the top of the shelves. It can be dangerous for shorter people.

    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.

    I have been working at Levi Strauss full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company genuinely operates from a values-driven place; there are lots of great perks for employees (time off to volunteer, product discounts, great 401k matching, ESPP, etc).

    Cons

    Aside from wearing jeans to the office, it's a very traditional work environment that is set up for some types of people to succeed, but doesn't always live up to its values of embracing new and different perspectives.

  4. "Good first job experience"

    I worked at Levi Strauss part-time

    Pros

    Got a decent discount and would get a free item up to $100 MSRP if the store made its monthly goal.

    Cons

    Having to wear Levi's jeans for every shift.

  5. "Amazing company"

    I worked at Levi Strauss full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Really cares about the people that work for them as well as around the world.

    Cons

    Technology is a bit behind. I think there is some work to be done with the product for ladies. I think they have figured out the jeans, now the tops need some work.

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

    Pros

    The pay is good, co workers are friendly, discount off of clothes and uniform policies are good.

    Cons

    Can be quite boring sometimes on shopfloor, folding and organising jeans becomes tiring. Music is terrible.

    "Stay Away"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Levi Strauss part-time

    Pros

    A job for when you're in college and need to make money.

    Cons

    They will not let you expand in the retail business. If you're a cashier, you stay a cashier. If you're a sales person,you stay there and cannot even be a fitting room person. It also makes it hard to switch schedules with people because you can only switch with people in your area. Every few months there was a new manager and each one had to be trained by the sales people since they had no knowledge. If you're scheduled to work a certain amount of hours and it's a slow day, they send you home early. With your salary, you can't even afford regular priced jeans even with your 30% discount because they try to give you least hours possible. Managers criticize your wardrobe.
