    I have been working at Vans part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - 50% discount off full price items, 30% off sale
    - easy to move up to floor supervisor positions, that is if old college drop out adults aren't hogging the spots
    - usually chill coworkers
    - never opens earlier than 9am

    Cons

    - if your managers don't like you they'll give you the new kid jobs ie. mopping, cleaning the bathroom (nobody actually does these jobs)
    - a lot of detail things that you have to remember when doing your job
    - Vanity Fair owns us, you work your ass off, no it's not a "chill" easy job
    - really awful pay and bad "raises"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay your employees more and maybe they'll actually care about their job

    I worked at Vans part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great discount. Nice dress code. Personally I was treated very well by upper management. The company likes to promote from within, and I took advantage of that.

    Cons

    Pay is not great. I worked in an outlet where we were always understaffed but always had a lot to do to take care of the store. There's always bad customers in retail, and Vans is no exception. Outlets always had very little payroll, and at most we would have three people watching the sales floor, making it easy for someone to sneak out with a new pair of shoes on their feet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More payroll to outlet stores. The outlets are the stores driving the company and would excel even more with more hours.
