    Pros

    Its a fun and laid back atmosphere not very demanding and stressful.

    Cons

    There is no financial incentive to want to stay with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The typical employee(non-management) works 8 hours a week that are split into two days and gets paid minimum wage.

    I have been working at Vans

    Pros

    50% regular discount.
    30% off sale items.
    20% off skate equipment.

    That's all. And its actually pretty awesome.

    Cons

    You know the person who mentioned Vans is run by posers and geeks. Yeah I brushed him off too. Turns out, he was right on. Not like Freaks & Geeks(the show) where everyone is actually awesome, and they're looked down on. No I mean, these people try very hard to be the "cool jerk".

    And if you're new, you're nothing but a placeholder. You will not be "good enough" no matter how much you sell.

    Your professionalism will suffer simply from how co-workers and management communicate with each other. It may be cool and hip when you're a teenager, but bad habits die hard and you don't need that.

    Oh and be prepared to be called for a 4 hour shift and only work for 2.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I fell in love with the Vans philosophy. Its too bad no one cares anymore.
