    I worked at The Buckle

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at The Buckle.

    Interview Details

    The interview took place on the sales floor in the back of the store. The manager asked me a few questions about why I wanted to work there and how good I was at selling at my last retail job. I asked on the phone when they scheduled my interview if I should dress professionally or if I should wear something I would wear if I worked there. The manager said, "Wear whatever you think is appropriate." I ended up wearing black pants and a nice top just to be safe. I could tell she liked me but was skeptical about my style because they asked me back on another day for a five minute interview with a team lead, probably to evaluate how I dressed and whether I would fit in. That time, I wore a more casual outfit and was offered the position later that day.
