At Buckle, the way our store looks is just as important as the products we sell. Our Visual Merchandisers help us showcase our merchandise in the… VelvetJobs.com
I worked at The Buckle part-time (Less than a year)
We got a great 40% discount for working here, I got to work with really fun people, I got to see new trends hit the floor everyday and I got first dibs on buying anything I liked that came in-at 40% even! I am majoring in Apparel Merchandising and the Buckle was provided a really great retail experience for me for a summer that I had off from school. I was able to learn a lot about sales in particular and I am a lot better at selling and approaching customers because of the training provided there. They have a really great training program for new team members! I also got to help with the visual merchandising of the store a little bit and I really enjoyed dressing the mannequins and layering their outfits. This job also taught me more about the styling aspects of fashion. I was able to put together outfits for the customers who came in and it was really fun helping people pick out outfits for their senior pictures or a date or just everyday life!
Very sales based so if that is not your forte then I would not recommend it. You also have to be pretty outgoing or learn to be outgoing to be able to sell!
Advice to Management
Everyone was really nice here! Sometimes though management and sales associates can be very pushy but it is commission based so it happens I guess.
