    Maine’s legendary outdoor apparel retailer has an unbelievably low turnover among full-time employees at 3%, while part-time turnover is only low at 11%. Employees like their discount of 33 to 40 percent on LLBean items. And the 103-year-old company also sponsors a club that plans excursions like sea kayaking, camping and snowshoeing.
