    I worked at Lovisa full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are some great team members in the USA office and the field but they are wasting their talents on an organization that neither values or cares for them in any way. Almost every team member in the USA office and the field is miserable.

    Cons

    I know we will be in Global Recession soon and a paycheck is a paycheck but Lovisa is quite honestly the worst company you could EVER work for in any financial climate. They will most likely use this disaster to underpay and take advantage of team members as much as they can because people need jobs. A few highlights of Lovisa: -Unbelievably toxic and micromanagement culture. There is no reason to employ a USA leadership team as all decisions are made in Australia. -Constant hour and wage violations and violations of FLSA guidelines in order to keep the wage percentages low and pay the team as little as possible. Illegal labor practices in California include automatically adding a lunch break whether the team member takes it or not. -Discriminatory practices in the offering of benefits and 401k. The field teams pay far more for benefits than the office team does and are excluded from the 401k plan despite the fact that legally the plan is to include all employees. - Astonishing rate of employee turnover. Entire teams quit before new stores even open due to poor communication and hour/wage violations. Team members just walk out and leave the store keys with the mall security guards because the store environment is so toxic and stressful. Team members are forced to work full days (12 hours) and then disciplined for closing the store to use the restroom or take a break as most stores don't even have a restroom for the team members to save on build out costs. -Refusal to pay competitive wages and offer competitive benefits and then blame the recruitment teams for candidates that have no interest in working for the organization. Lovisa also promises benefits that it doesnt even offer in some team members offer letters just to get them to take the job with zero intention of following through on these. -Zero training and development at ALL levels of the organization. Every single employee is set up to fail. Team members are asked to work alone on their first day in stores The few that do "love lovisa" usually feed off of the toxic culture. Some store managers were promoted to regional manager roles - moved across the country - not trained for their new role and then blamed for failing in their new role and then forced to quit instead of being trained. -During the COVID-19 crisis the company refused to let the team work from home because it is against the company "culture". The USA Lovisa was the last team in their entire office building and forced to work from home when the office building was forcibly closed due by buliding management. Lovisa is more concerned with the "culture" of the company than the lives of their own team members. They were also one of the last retailers open in most malls and forced to close when the mall management closed the centers. - Regional and State managers NEVER have a day off. They probably work 70-80 hours a week as they are forced to micromanage their markets by calling their stores constantly and check on every single little thing the store is asked to do. They are called constantly by upper management and their stores because Lovisa is so micromanaged that no one is trained to do anything with autonomy. It doesn't matter if they are on PTO or deathly ill- someone will be calling them for something that can most likely wait. Regional and State Managers are also constantly forced to work in stores as team members because of the constant turnover. Almost EVERY single Regional or State manager deeply regrets taking the job at Lovisa and is so terribly overworked its a wonder they aren't all on stress leaves. -Lovisa forces high performing regional and state managers to constantly move around the country every few months whether they want to or not.These constant moves create perpetual instability in the USA market and fuel the turnover. This is not a review of Lovisa. THIS IS A WARNING. I did not take the glassdoor or indeed reviews seriously enough. Every single poor review of Lovisa is rooted in truth. The culture is negative and toxic and will take its toll on you. The labor practices are unethical, immoral and in many cases illegal. The choice is yours but you should STAY AS FAR AWAY FROM LOVISA AS POSSIBLE.
