Posted Sep 30th, 2019 by Allison Schroeder  Category: Business


As Levis Commons approaches the 15 year anniversary of its opening which took place in October of 2004, they are celebration more than just the past 15 years of dining, shopping and activities. This year, they are celebrating the Levis Commons 15 year veterans, in nearly unheard of amounts.

According to the *Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median employee tenure in the retail industry is just 3 years and median tenure in all industries is 4.2 years. But Levis Commons is celebrating their 15th anniversary with nearly 15 employees who have been there all 15 years.

“We have worked hard to establish Levis Commons as a team environment and create a sense of belonging for the employees at all of the businesses here” said Allison Schroeder, Levis Commons Marketing Director. We utilize a Facebook group to share information, we host quarterly networking meetings, we share exciting news with the employees before the general public, and we encourage business to business employee discounts, contests, giveaways, cross promotions and overall team interactions.” As a 15 year employee herself, Ms. Schroeder loves seeing so many of the same faces that were here to celebrate the grand opening all those years ago. “There are so many careers and equally important, friendships, built here. The longevity of employment speaks volumes to the enjoyable work environment.”

In addition to Ms. Schroeder, the Levis Commons management team has another 15 year veteran. Facility Manager Rodney Stanton has been overseeing the operations of the center since before the grand opening ribbon was cut. Other 15 year employees include Angel Ogrodowski-Twynman, store manager at J.Jill and two of her associates in the store. Rick Clayton, store manager of Books A Million, Maggie Koehler of Lily’s, and Jim Uncapher of Arahus Furniture.

“We still see general turnover of employees” said Maggie Koehler, but there is something about working at Levis Commons that just has staying power!”
