    I have been working at Fossil full-time (More than a year)


    Great work life balance. Onsite cafe, starbucks, employee store and gym. Great brand. Friendly people.


    Work life balance abused. Most roll in after 9 and leave before 5 with an hour lunch. Company needs to work harder to stay on trend or they're going to get left behind.

    Advice to Management

    Keep everyone honest working their 40 hours a week.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Fossil (New York, NY).


    I had a group interview with about 5 other people. After waiting for the others to arrive the manager took us to the back room for the interview. Pretty typical group interview, they asked a question and went down the line as we answered. They might ask you to pretend to sell a product to them if the group is small. They were really friendly and tried to make us feel more comfortable as we were clearly nervous.
