    I have been working at Lovisa full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have worked at Lovisa for over 4.5 years now and would not want to be anywhere else. If you are someone looking for a challenge where you can contribute to the businesses success I would highly recommend Lovisa. Great support from team in and out of the department.

    Cons

    Very fast paced environment - if you have not worked in a fast paced work place before you may find it challenging (but that’s half the fun!)p

    Pros

    - Good discount -Good regional manager (depending on who you get - Get to be surrounded by jewellery learn skills on how to handle pressure and negativity

    Cons

    -Rude managers, will push you and pressurise you every 10 mins. will notice every action and will constantyl point out mistakes. Crazy expectations with low wages. Not even one girl stays for long. Rude customers. It's not a styling role rather a saleswomen role where you have to convince customers

    Advice to Management

    Please coach managers to not treat team members like their servants. and lessen the pressure you give to team members.

      Pros

      AMAZING bunch of girls to work with, made so many life long friends. Store managers were lovely and very good at what they do

      Cons

      Regional management is very hit or miss. I had a really great regional manager for the first part of my employment then after she left u had a very horrible one who had an INSANE staff turnover to prove it. Within her first month of being in charge 4 girls had left my store

      Advice to Management

      Work on who you put in charge. It will be the downfall of the company

      Horrible managers who are 100% not to be trusted Impossible expectations; ie: super high KPIs, loads of work, open and close store on same day without training or prior notice People always quit, they treat people bad so there is a high turnover so they can pay people at a lower rate No one cares about individual workers Undermining managers

      Pros

      Wear accessories to work and staff discount

      Cons

      Everything!!!! Read all the reviews on this site. From the horrible management to the poor communication and leadership and all the overtime you have to work and the lowly paychecks. Mixed in with zero staff morale and a shocking company culture. There isnt anything positive about working here

      Advice to Management

      Take better care of your employees
