    I have been working at The Buckle full-time for more than 3 years


    Entrepreneurial culture. Opportunity for growth. Challenging work environment. Depending on your management, it is a super supportive company. I have met so many amazing people through Buckle, both as guests and co-workers.


    Sales goals, if you like to sell, this is the place for you. Like everything in the world, what goes up must come down. There are times where meeting your goals become next to impossible.
