    Pros

    The people, the teams and the company culture.

    Cons

    You may have to work later shifts depending on your stats. Growth is possible but takes a while due to favoritism.

    I worked at Fossil full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employee discounts are great, up to 70% off

    Cons

    Career growth isn’t based on knowledge or experience, it’s always based off of managements favorites, normally people who even though they aren’t good at what they’re supposed to do, they are still promoted! Imagine having to go to HR because in over 7 months an issue hasn’t been resolved by the highest level of management in your department, well so happy I’m outta there!

    I worked at Fossil full-time

    Pros

    Discount was nice that is it.

    Cons

    Be ready to spoil customers till they are brats and verbally abuse you because that is the reality of this company. They want you to back policy but if you do and get a complaint you are written up. They want you to make money but give everything away if they customer wants it. They only care about making money not you or your people. They cut and cut and cut until you can't staff your store because no one wants to work...

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Good pay and easy work.

    Cons

    Standing for about 8-10 hours. The area is a bit rough and some of the people there can be rowdy and troublesome. People will be on their phones and don’t get work done causing you and others to stay longer.

    I have been working at Fossil part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fossil always looks out for their employees. The higher ups take their time to talk to and get to know the people when they do their store visits not just the managers, but part time employees as well. They ask advice on how we think the company can improve.

    Cons

    Some weeks hours are scarce as if you aren't one of the top sellers you might not have that many hours that week. Also corporate needs to give stores more hours for holiday weekends so there is more coverage.
