    Pros

    - Great atmosphere of people
    - Company discount
    - Always had something to do
    - Great music

    Cons

    - Being the inventory manager I worked in the back so I had to listen to the training videos on repeat whenever the managers or new hires needed to watch them
    - A LOT of gossip - the managers tend to be the ones that start the gossip and it trickles down
    - Poor pay for how much work it is to be the inventory manager

    Advice to Management

    Keep the gossip to a minimum, continue encouraging your employees to do better, the higher up (district & regional managers) need to pay closer attention to the store managers --- the original manager at my store was AWFUL & everyone knew it was a problem but it took over a year for there to be actions taken & it effected the whole store.

    Pros

    You get a 40% discount, communicative team, and great training!

    Cons

    Not many hours or full-time positions, if it's a slow day it affects your paycheck, if a guest does a return it also affects your cells and paycheck. Most of the people that work at buckle have a second job because of the low hours we have.

    Advice to Management

    Give more hours and full-time job positions, most of the people that work at the buckle have a second job because we can't survive with the little hours you give us, fix the structure of Commission based and returns. Sometimes it's not our fault a guest changed their mind and wants to return an item. Slow days also kill our paychecks

  6. Working at the Buckle can be a bit stressful, but your coworkers and the people you help out make the workplace better.

    Pros

    Since the job is commissioned based there is unlimited opportunity and you can quickly move up with the company.

    Cons

    The percentage of commission we receive off of our sales is lower than usual. We get 3% commission on all of our sales, but if we have to order products online our percentage is lowered to 1% commission. Also, the base rate is fairly low.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better base rate pay raises.

    Pros

    The positivity, friendly work enviornment, and team atmosphere make this a great company to work for. The Buckle, Inc. always takes on young college students and turns them into professionals.

    Cons

    In my position, I had to work nights/weekend shifts. While this was known facet of the job when I originally applied for the job, the department was understaffed, and I often worked a high volue of shifts as I was covering for those who needed time off, as well as the rotations in which a teammate was not available; however, improvements to scheduling and staffing have been made since I left for my current position.

    Pros

    Being a seamstress at The Buckle was a great experience. I got to help with something I love to do. It was nice having your own area in the backroom to work and no one really bothered you. All the other team members were very nice and friendly. The working conditions were good. You get to pick your own hours but you just have to get the jeans hemmed by a certain day. Very flexible job.

    Cons

    I think the compensation could be a little better for the amount of work I did. Sometimes people customers would not understand when something was un-fixable.

  9. Very welcoming company that wants to help you grow.

    Pros

    Your commission is uncapped, if you wanted you could push to sell thousands of dollars worth of clothing on people, and sometimes you can succeed in it.

    Cons

    The managers are very tough on you if you don't get good sales in, or reach your goals for the week. If you aren't aggressive enough or outgoing enough, it is hard to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    My training was great, but at some other stores the managers aren't as invested in their employees.
