    Advice to Management

    Some upper level management should work in a store before they give crazy demands for sales each week.

    Pros

    The team is AMAZING. You aren't paid on commission, but your hours are based on how well you do. This means that the team is very close. Schedules are carefully formulated to have the best team at any given moment. Everyone is a little different to add to the experience, but we all work well together. I've heard that this is true at other stores from customers that come in. Managers are friendly, but still know how to get everything done. Everyone I know is also very knowledgeable about the product as well. Training is fantastic.

    Cons

    It'd be nice to have a percentage of commission just as a bonus to our paycheck. I feel like I work really hard and I put a lot into my job. Don't get me wrong, I'm very passionate about working at Fossil and the base pay isn't bad at all compared to other stores, but I'm having to find a second or third job to make a comfortable income.
