News : L.L. Bean to Shift Job Responsibilities from Lewiston
Lewiston, ME, USA, June 15, 2015 -- By the end of the year, L.L. Bean's Lewiston call center employees will stop auditing orders as part of their job and will focus more on customer service.
Audits — checking to make sure orders are processed correctly — will instead be done from Costa Rica, where L.L. Bean has had an office for nearly 20 years.
