    I worked at Fossil part-time

    Pros

    Good discount including sale merchandise

    Cons

    Hours based on sales which leads to toxic work environment
    No commission
    Management will chat with employees and waste time doing nothing but if someone is caught leaning they are reprimanded and forced to clean while the managers continue to make small talk with other employees

    I worked at Fossil part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    merchandise discount on wide variety of watches and handbags

    Cons

    had hours cut more than once, position was ultimately cut over a conference call-division wide layoff over the phone:(
    good benefits only if in corporate office or a full time manager

    Advice to Management

    listen to input from the field. invest in better quality fabrications, marketing, and people in the field. raising prices while cheapening the product doesn't work.
