I worked at Dickies

Pros

Good product, colleagues at same level lovely, international, fab rapport with sales team, a couple of good directors (when they are interested).

Cons

Very poor salaries but directors still get good bonuses, no opportunities for advancement, lots of power politics and double standards. Wrong people get promoted. Those who should don't.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to everyone, not just who you think you should - who is to say that person is telling the truth. Remember your staff are your principal asset. Look after them and question why you have such a high staff turnover. Think about alternative ways of staff motivation - read Herzberg!

    I have been working at Dickies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of support from upper management, yet they stay out of your way and let you do your job. For the most part it is a positive environment. Pay is decent. Customers are by and large cool.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for advancement. Only store west of Texas, so once you're here, that's kind of where you'll stay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to get more with the times when it comes to technology or the most efficient way of doing paperwork.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are OK. Compensation was fair. Good access to training programs outside the company.

    Cons

    Time-off policies were Draconian, as was HR. Company shifted from a family-friendly environment to a very poor work-life balance in a few years. Work load was very high and unsustainable due to poor sourcing and development strategy at the VP level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your due diligence in researching and vetting new hires. Actually read all of the internal employee surveys. Fire incompetent managers and directors. Hire enough staff to create a better work-life balance. Don't waste time and money on the fashion market.
