can only wear vans shoes. If you are over 30 you might feel old. If you have kids you might not fit in as weel.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. Kevin Bailey is the best leader I have ever work under and he is going to lead them to a great future.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    I worked at Vans for the discount on their products since I like their shoes.
    I also worked with great co-workers that made the experience better.

    Cons

    I was not offered enough hours at first, but as you work there longer they will offer you more. I went through two supervisors, the first one was really bad and I did not like him but the second one was great.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you have good customer service skills, are interested in sales because those are pretty much the only skills you will need.

    Advice to Management

    Here's a tip, for all the Van's Retail upper management.... Actually work and do your job then call once a week and read e-mails to people stop verbally demoralizing and try to help out those beneath you instead of asking for unrealistic tasks to get done with a 2% cut every week of $10,000 a week to pay high school kids... Pay people more money and maybe they will work harder... There's a thought? Not too difficult is it?
