    I worked at Swatch part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good hours, commission possible, staff is young, provide training, chances to move up. Easy to close and open. Free watch after 2 months. Store events

    Cons

    Saying the same speech over and over. Late hours if working in Times Square. Strict dress code. Many evaluations. Sometimes hard manual labor for the watches.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes upkeep with sales is just impossible.
