Lane Bryant Complaint - Do Not Work Or Shop @ Lane Bryant In New York!
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Hello ladies, I too worked for charming shoppes Inc., and I just lost my job as well. I was with the company for a good amount of years and had devoted about 55 to 70 hours/week running their store to have bosses who were nasty and inconsiderate every single day. The district and regional managers I worked for, never cared about your health, family needs or well being. There are so many managers and assistant managers that really hate their jobs and the district/regional managers but they are really afraid to jump from one hell to another.
Imagine being threatened every day by your district manager and regional manager that if you do not make your plan sales, credit goal, bra fit goal, intimate apparel goal they will find other people to replace you. This is how the leaders in the New York area motivate their managers; (with threats); No one took into consideration the blizzard that day. I can honestly say that they actually did me a favor by letting me go, for the first time in years I am actually resting without getting phones calls from my district manager to cut my vacation short and go back to my store because it is not to her standards. The company has been going down hill ever since charming shoppes took it over; when lane bryant was operated by the “Limited”, employees felt a sense of value. Recently in January 2009, the company sent out severence letters to every manager and full time employees as a heads up that anyone of you that sign this form have been warned that you could be next in losing your job. I tell everyone now, do not even waste your money shopping at any Lane Bryant, Catherines or Fashion bug because there are better places like Walmart, Khols, JC penny, Macys, Torrid, and many other places to choose from.
Better yet, do not even think about working for this company. Charming shoppes Inc. is modern day SLAVERY and I can say this because I experienced the turmoil of working for them and believing their lies and false expansion promises for many years.
