    Pros

    It is different everyday, fast paced, and fun. They definitely promote side by side leadership and treating all pay grades and positions equally.

    Cons

    Buckle requires a lot of your time on and off the clock. They expect a lot from their employees. Part time workers sometimes have a hard time keeping up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your time, keep collected, and remember the part time workers. Communication and organization is key, sometimes these factors get lost in the retail rush.

    I have been working at The Buckle part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoy the commission. You get what you work hard for. Fun job for those who are fashion conscious. Always something to do so time at work goes by quick. Helpful and respectful people to work with. Room for opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    Minimal hours if you are part time or have a very limited availability because they are constantly hiring. No health benefits for part timers. Few co-workers can be quite unprofessional or too personal depending on the age range or maturity of those you work with.
