Hiring Process
We’re pleased that you are interested in joining L.L.Bean and we want to make sure you are well informed about our hiring process.

Apply Online
The process begins after you have searched our career site and selected the opportunity that is right for you by clicking the “Apply for this job” link at the bottom of the page.

If this is the first time you are applying, you will be asked to create an online profile. A resume and/or cover letter can either be uploaded or you can cut and paste a copy of your resume into the textbox.

Tip: Cut and paste your resume into the text box so our recruiters can quickly retrieve your resume when searching our database of candidates.

If you have created a profile in the past, click on "Returning User Login." Your profile shows you the jobs you’ve applied for and your current status, allows you to update your resume or contact information and to search and apply for new jobs.

We encourage you to check back often as we frequently add new opportunities to our website.

After Applying
You will receive a confirmation email acknowledging that we have received your application. If you don’t receive an email, please check your email spam folder.
