    Crappy Hours if doing seasonal 10 hours a week ?? Even the full time works have multiple jobs. Having to hound people to buy shoes you know nothing about.

    I worked at Timberland full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Relationship with staff, team environment. Benefits are decent, raises not so much. Great perks at the Holidays for the staff. Good quality product.

    Cons

    Quotas are difficult to meet at times. Promotions are few in a store, not many higher positions to fill. Company values are decent, changed after the company was bought out, but would be fine for new employees with no comparison. As with any retail position, the Holidays are chaotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think through changes thoroughly and do it once.

    Simple retail position; easy

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in King of Prussia, PA
    Former Employee - Sales Associate in King of Prussia, PA

    I worked at Timberland part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Leadership was cool and everything was straight forward.

    Cons

    Typical retail hours and like any other retail position, favoritism exists. People who were cool with the store manger outside of work had more leeway to do as they pleased.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch who you make your store managers. The manager was younger and not all that experienced with a managerial position.

    I worked at Timberland full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to:
    -- Work on a global brand with lots of consumer appeal
    -- Take on big projects from start to finish with limited oversight
    -- Live in Seacoast NH (near Boston, the mountains, universities)
    -- Balance work & life (true for most, but not all jobs here)

    Cons

    -- Salaries are low (even by NH standards)
    -- Limited upward mobility

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in New York, NY

    I worked at Timberland part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paid community service, 20 hrs for part timers and 40 for full timers. Vacation accrual for part and full time employees. Great discount on products, and free products to wear for work.

    Cons

    Increased pressure on individual numbers when not commission based. Hours cut drastically for everyone but management. Management pressuring people to come in no matter what, even when severely sick. Almost no opportunity to advance within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like more than just selling machines. (retail stores, not necessarily corporate)
