    Pros

    decent compensation
    opportunities for growth within the company
    management was very understanding
    very nice discount!
    Practical dress code
    diverse staff
    good music!

    Cons

    some of the sales strategies are too pushy
    management expects you to use their sales tactics regardless of whether they work well for you or not
    the style can be a little gaudy at times and they layer too much
    they make you push the buckle "rewards" card (credit card) too much

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes you know how to read your costumer and know that being too "pushy" will turn them off so it's actually better to ease up a little bit. Management needs to understand that not all of the sales tactics work on every customer. Also, if you have been involved in the presentation for a while, than you have probably figured your costumer out pretty well and don't need 2-3 other people telling you what else to show them on top of all of the things you already have. I hate exhausting a sale.

    Pros

    The closeness of the staff makes working for the Buckle very enjoyable. The style of the merchandise is also always evolving. They do not spray awful loud scents around the store. They are committed to customer service of the highest level.

    Cons

    Lately, the style of the clothes has been becoming too glittery and metallic for a mass audience. I am not a fan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep adhering to your commitment to excellent customer service. Do not travel too far from your core merchandise. Keep up the good work.
