    Pros

    fun staff, easy to set your own schedule! never a boring day and always new faces

    high turnover rate, very slow to promote unless you go right in to MIT program

    Advice to Management

    promote from within, actively try to reduce turnover rate, allow managers longer terms to improve sales, consider staff feedback when placing managers

    Pros

    There is a pretty decent compensation for a retail position. The intended culture is support to be and can definitely be inspiring.

    Cons

    If you are not comfortable with pushing product and credit cards to people, this is not the job for you. The customers and the coworkers can be very shallow and negative.

    Advice to Management

    Praise your staff more and work harder to create a positive atmosphere that people can thrive in. Make it known that there is a zero tolerance for poor attitudes and favoritism.

    Pros

    The company is ver close and you will have the opportunity to meet all of the managers and many people at HQ. They pay great commission. Once you're on the team, they really give you a lot of training and opportunity to move up in the company.

    Cons

    It's very customer service based, even in management positions. You have to love talking with people and creating client lists.

    Pros

    The Buckle is a great place to meet amazing team members and customers. It is so rewarding to help somebody find the perfect outfit and make their day. This may just be retail but it has taught me much more than selling clothes. It has helped me be more confident in approaching people and creating a positive environment.

    Cons

    The only con is that the pay isn't much. You can make this up in sales but if your don't have many, you don't make much commission.

    This company was amazing to work for - the people, the environment, the management - everyone is so driven, friendly and helpful. This is more than just a retail position, it teaches you about social interaction, business development, financial analysis, etc. It was truly a pleasure working for them!

    Cons

    It was primarily commission based.

    Pros

    I loved working here! Training on customer interaction and selling merchandise. Customers have great attitude, the team is fun, high sales goals a great challenge! Commission pay great especially holidays!

    Cons

    Long hours, most of the time I would get out of work at 2am, some managers that came down with corporate from other areas were not respectful.

    Advice to Management

    Be nice when coming down from a visit. Humiliation isn't good.
