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

    Pros

    Great team Good uniform allowance Good staff discount Good pay

    Cons

    Upper management is an old boys' club The HR department is in shambles 'Theft of time' and misapplication of staff discount is treated more seriously than sexual harassment and casual racism Upper management loves talking about doing things instead of actually doing things Productivity and profit are valued more than worker well-being Staff offered low contracts but expected to have ample availability Work/life balance almost non-existent

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

    Pros

    Company is a strong proponent of progressive social and environmental issues. Decent pay for retail Good health benefits

    Cons

    Toxic internal culture. The store level workers are treated like dirt by the corporate level employees. Upper management instills extreme fear tactics when corporate visits occur and you feel like you could get fired just by looking at them the wrong way. They also demand the red carpet, celebrity treatment whenever they come into the store (god forbid they’re not greeted by every single associate in the store). There is also absolutely zero regard for work/life balance. It’s near impossible to get a weekend off (I’ve had only 3 off in the past year). It’s also an uphill battle to request vacation time as it will always conflict with “the needs of the business” even if you give 3 months notice in advance. Work hours are 9+ hour days and schedules are not made fairly. Upper management works the normal 9 to 5s and comes and goes whenever they please leaving support managers to work the undesirable shifts.
