LL Bean seasonal employment-a farce freeport, Maine
*UPDATE Employee: LL Bean Seasonal Employee Complaint Rebuttal
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: L.L. Bean Seasonal is hit or miss but still a good deal
Training was three days in Mid September which was very informative, but a bit compressed. I had one afternoon shadowing another associate the following week, then NO hours until Columbus Day weekend. I worked Columbus day weekend, which was shocking at first, because it was a madhouse, and I had no experience on the floor. I was able to sling cow manure and made it through that weekend.
At that point things went downhill fast. I had no hours scheduled for weeks, and they refused to allow me to cross train to other departments were bodies were needed. I was told that "next week" will be better. Like a fool I listened to this propaganda, and at the same time turned down offers at UPS, Crackerbarrel, Time Warner, and Best Buy. By the time thanksgiving rolled around I only had one shift scheduled in November. I finally told them to give me 40 hours, OR let me take a mon-fri job. Of course one of the state's wealthiest family had to pince pennies.
To make a long story short, I had to work mon to friday in December, and they reluctantly gave me a few weekend shifts, because the exodus had already begun.
Do not think of working at LL Bean "seasonally" unless you want one shift a week at most. What the idiots in HR tell you is pure cow poop. They hate like hell to give seasonal hires any hours.
Merry ****ing Christmas from LL Bean.
