I worked at Buffalo Exchange full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Fun environment, lots of bonuses, great if you love fashion, meet a lot of interesting people, good music, laid back, charitable company. Working retail is never going to be amazing but Buffalo Exchange was the best retail experience I ever had, it's a great company that I still support.

Cons

The only thing I didn't like was the heavy focus on walking in circles and chatting up customers when there was hardly anyone in the store, you end up feeling like a creep just wandering and annoying people for the sake of showing the manager you're engaging with customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's okay to be focused on a project if that's what you excel at, some people are better at the small talk of customer service than others.

    I worked at Buffalo Exchange

    Pros

    Exciting fashion coming in regularly. Fellow employees were lovely and we became close. Lots of training. Emphasis on accountability. Great benefits and good pay compared to some other retail stores.

    Cons

    Disgruntled customers every day. Keeping store clean is a battle. Management often tells you that you are not performing well enough, rather than telling you what you are doing well. Extremely strict about register issues. Management sometimes plays favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees more encouragement.
