    Former Employee - Stores Group in Richardson, TX

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

    Pros

    Strong company, Great retail products, Good Employee Benefits, Casual Fun Environment

    Cons

    Poor management direction, poor top-down communication, unqualified middle management, little to no opportunities for advancement, Intense workload for little pay, high turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just make appearances, but rather get to know your employees. Stop making inside jokes with just a handful of your choice employees. Recognize the need for middle management leadership training. Hire leaders into management roles, rather than good performers. Pay your employees their worth.

    I worked at Fossil part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive wages, great product, great people, wonderful company.

    Cons

    Floor sets a little too often (every other Saturday) with no AC and from 9 p.m. until 4 a.m. sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to have the AC running while doing floor moves and operations work.
