At the beginning it was the best, lots of fun and hours to share, but at the end the management was so bad, it was very competitive for the sales associates for hours etc, and there is no where to move up in the work place
good benefits like discounts etc
Good wage but rubbish hours
É un ambiente davvero fantastico, ho avuto un esperienza davvero positiva, di vita, non lavorativa, per quella lavorativa ancora meglio, mi é davvero dispiaciuto dover terminare i rapporti per cause di forza maggiore, ma un giorno, probabilmente ritorneremo ad incontrarci, chissà
In my year and a half as a Keyholder, I found Levi’s to be a fantastic and enjoyable place to work. The role offers an unprecedented opportunity to gain a great deal of experience in taking on high levels of responsibility and managing workloads efficiently. You also gain a great amount of confidence as a managerial figure, and never feel as if you don’t matter. The management are phenomenal in their support, and don’t suffer from the egotistical megalomania that I found commonplace elsewhere in the retail sector. The depth of training is brilliant, and although you will be taking on a high level of responsibility (opening and shutting the store on your own can be daunting but training is thorough and you quickly gain confidence) everything is relatively straightforward and takes a reasonable amount of practice to master. Getting to grips with your product knowledge takes practice and patience, but I found team members to be hugely supportive on this front. You are expected (rightly so) to be a strong brand ambassador, and you have to be prepared to confidently deal with KPIs which are very straightforward and can (for the most part) easily be attained if you refine your sales technique and also ensure your product knowledge is spot on. You do have to be prepared to take constructive criticism (as, after all, you are expected to be leading by example) along the way, as it is expected that you always deliver quality service. Although I found this, at first, to be a challenge (despite extensive experience in the field) I relished the opportunity to develop my abilities, and - more...
Brilliant management, brilliant pay, progression opportunities.
Occasional difficult customers
-no job security, I was let go along with 4 others in the same day due to budget cutbacks -the pay is okay-the targets are crazy, they are good for experience but very high and created a toxic work place where everyone was against each other -weekly, daily and hourly personal targets made this job very intense -no one got on as the targets put everyone against each other, always a bad atmosphere -management clearly had favourites -low contract hours mean low hours one week and possibly too many the next -no fun on the weekends as only the manager and their favourites had weekends off -good discount but you have to work there 6 months before you get it-Very hard and intense job but the experience got me a supervisor role elsewhere I would recommend the job for short term but not long term
Wasn't a hard job for me to work at Levi's but is a noisy and dusty place. But the biggest problem is the collective that every time is unfriendly and envios.
Free coffee and tea /clean cantine
The typical day at Levi's really depends on the shift you work, early shifts will require restocking and organizing the shop floor. Later shifts will require helping close up and assist the shop floor managers etc. Like any retail job, its what you make of it. The KPI targets are generally set depending on your experiences with pushing sales, talking to customers etc. Although these can be demanding, they usually just want you to really be enthusiastic and lively with customers and represent the brand in a positive light.
I have worked in retail for almost 3 years now but working at Levi's has by far been the best place I have worked. It' atmosphere is fun and you will never be bored on a shift.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
My time at Levi's was very enjoyable. Every team member worked very hard so you didn't have to pick up anyone's slack. The work can be quite intense and fast paced but also rewarding. The pay was very good for my age and I received discounts and uniform allowance. I particularly liked the management as it felt like they generally cared about your well-being. Overall a great company to work for, I wish I could've stayed longer as I was a Christmas Temp.
Dreadful management in my store ruined the experience for me. It’s sales based and you have targets to meet but no incentive or rewards for meeting them. Low pay as expected in retail and almost no weekends off. Met some great people but it isn’t something for long term. It can be relaxed but also stressful especially around busy periods when customers forget all manners. Can be long hours and late finishes.
I worked at Levi’s as a Stylist for almost 2 years. I hated it. At first it was fine, great team, good pay, nice perks but as time went on it got worse. The company itself isn’t the worst, I actually liked the selling of the products and the amount of training provided was great. The problems laid with targets and management. Targets were always crazy and unattainable, and closely monitored. You were expected to hit all 5/6 KPI’s every single week. Sometimes for 4 hour evening shift you’d be expected to take £800 alone. Even worse was the management, they were cruel and unfair. If you weren’t their favourite, they’d hate you. They would punish you with things like no overtime if you didn’t hit target. The management would sit in the office all day and leave all the work to the part time employees so you’d often be overwhelmed. There were plenty of terrible stories I could tell! I’ve never felt so miserable in a job and I am relieved I left!!
free uniform, opportunity for bonus
terrible management, unrealistic targets
Service has to be of the highest degree, ensuring customers walk away happy, restocking the shelves and tidying up are always going to be an aspect in this work. Learned cashing up at the end of the night, sorting through delivery and stockroom management, and the effective ways to engage with customers. To start management was good and things were kept tight but as time has progressed and two new supervisors have come in, the management of the store has gone downhill. Hardest part of the job is managing multiple customers at one time all needing different things at the same time always kept on your toes. Best part is seeing customers walk away happy with your help.
Management of staff
Extremely good company, good values and some managers were brilliant and supportive (others not so much- can be very cliquey). They ask for a lot and don’t give back much or offer internal promotions- especially from sales floor to head office roles.
Not a bad word about Levi's, amazing work place, great people, great discount and bundles of other great things! Managers will support you through mistakes etc. and overall great!
Staff Discount, Friendly Colleagues
Sometimes longer hours when setting up new window installations
I started as a sales assistant then worked my way up to junior supervisor. It started off fine but then as soon as I was promoted to management team everything went south. Other sales assistants were rude and nasty to me behind my back, which lead to me being called into the office all the time while the horrible, manipulative managers made me feel small and made me cry all the time. Other staff members had been lying to the managers saying I said this and that and as I was in pure shock I cried my eyes out all the time. Made my anxiety through the roof!!! I was on edge everyday I went in incase I was called into the office YET AGAIN... We had some nasty people work there that were doing nasty things but nothing was ever done. PATHETIC!! I was clearly not a favourite whatsoever. So soooo glad I left this store.
Everything about management!!!
