A reviewer shared some toughts about buying at Blair, "I was very excited to order from Blair. I shopped at a Blair in Las Vegas Nevada years ago and loved it. I ordered five capri set outfits. It was the cheapest garbage I have ever gotten from any clothing place in my life. Could do better in a used Thrift Shop or Walmart. I literally thought it was a prank or a joke. My shorts and pants look like if you took a tablecloth and made pants or shorts out of it. Although the tablecloth would have been better material. Could not be more disappointed in a clothing company. It feels like they know you can't see or feel the clothes. So they send you the most cheapest thinnest garbage ever. You don't want to have to send it back. They count on that. I thought Amazon was bad for the quality of clothing. It made Amazon look fancy."

The callers were usually screaming and calling names at you for the only reason of them having a bad day. No matter how nice you were to them, they would turn your mood around internally. Working for Blair brought back my depression. Cons: Many"
Sales Associate in Call Center (Former Employee) says"Had to work here after high school for a summer. It was not that bad but it was also really boring. I could not stay there for longer than a summer. I had to hop on the bandwagon as a Warren County resident."

Former Freelancer - Anonymous Freelancer says"I worked at Blair Cons: Well, From what I could see, If you have ever worked for Teletron , a call center for selling people things, like credit cards, and so on. It's like that. If you make people angry enough they hang up on you, or say nasty things on the phone to you for calling them. From what I know this place is similar, comes close to that. The pay not good, can't live off."

K. L. Seifert says"I ordered a sweatsuit for $28.47 at the beginning of August. When it arrived it did not fit. I returned it for another size, and they did not have that either, so I asked for a refund. They will only refund $11.07. When I asked why, I was told they charge that much for using their return label."
Judy says"First time I ordered. I don't know how this company stays in business. Ordered 6/22/20 and I wanted to return the item. I could not access my online account. After 5 phone calls to India and 15 emails, IT still has not fixed the problem. I returned the item 8/01 enclosing the Blair return/refund forms using their return label which cost me $9.99. It is now 8/10 and they say they have not received the item but when they do it will take 4-5 weeks to process my refund. A total of 6-7 months of hassle with this company."
Myrna Anglin says"I ordered slacks for my mother, who lives in a nursing home in Illinois. Eleven days later the package was tracked to the post office in that city. The next day it was in Memphis, TN. Why? Very poor customer service."
Jim Johnson says"I have been a customer of Blair/Haband for over 10 years. Stupid me - I finally realized that 100% of their products are made in China (home of the Wuhan Virus regardless of what Tedros of the WHO and the mouthpiece for Xi and the Chinese Communist Government claim). I'll gladly pay a couple of dollars extra for pants, shirts, etc. as opposed to "attending" my friend's funeral or suffering through an extended and unnecessary lock-down. Therefore, please inform me when your companies begin with MADE IN USA products (you have my e-mail address). James N. Johnson III - Tucson, AZ"
