Horrible experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Goleta, CA

I worked at Deckers Outdoor full-time

ProsFast in Hiring. Went through 3 interviews with the department head, HR and director, got brought on board within a month.

ConsFast in firing. Their lack of experience of training people, the incompetence of their department head. Had a very manipulative trainer who did not know how to train you, instead everything you did became wrong. Instead of giving you a little bit more time to learn everything, they fired you in 3 weeks. Among those 3 week I was sitting with different departments for 2 weeks so I really had been "trained" for a week, then they decided you were not a good fit and fired you.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive people more time to learn your company, your culture, your system etc. before you made that cold blooded decision.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

PR dept is the only one doing their job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Goleta, CA

I have been working at Deckers Outdoor full-time for more than a year

ProsThe only pro is the perks and they do well advertising them: generous employee discount on footwear, bikes available to go to the beach (as long as your supervisor doesn't make snide comments about your breaks), interesting seminars, and occasional free food.

ConsPromotions and hires are based more on "who you know" instead of actual skill sets. Company has an unrealistic outlook for future profits and expectations. Decisions made based on personal feelings and emotions instead of facts.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time vetting your potential management hires--supervisors don't seem to know what they're doing. Listen to more experienced employees even if they're not upper management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Unprofessional management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Flagstaff, AZ

I worked at Deckers Outdoor

Prosemployee discount if you got one, bonus if you got one

Conspoor communication from management. Evaluations are not given continuously, more is expected of us each day and management is never happy with the results. Lack of training.

Advice to Senior ManagementSet some expectations for new employees coming in, train them well and they will make you successful. Executive management needs to pay more attention to the front line employees and what they do for Deckers Outdoor Corp, respect your employees.

dont work at ugg australia in woodbury commons, central valley, ny

Floor Sales (Former Employee)
Central Valley, NY

I worked at Deckers Outdoor

Pros30 percent off in store purchase and 50 percent plus 20 percent (not 70%) for online purchase to be honest after the discount there is nothing good about working for this company

Consat the ugg australia store in woodbury you see many people come and go. its a small store where you only need about 20 people including management. the store manager and assistant manager are very disrespectful. the office door is paper thin so when they speak about people you can hear the whole converstation. its very sad. they are very unhappy people who work there and caused one assistant manager to quit and from the time i started up until today 13 people have quit. because of the way management treated them.

Advice to Senior Managementlearn to treat people better and give them more respect. if you have a problem with someones work dont talk about them to regular employees just tell that person directly.
