    I have been working at The Buckle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Stumbling upon Buckle was one of my best decisions ever. There is an amazing work to home balance, flexible schedule, awesome discount and amazing career advancement opportunities. I work at a store with an area manager as our store manager and he and my district manager are completely invested in my advancement. I started out as a leader in training and was promoted in less than a year all the way up to assistant manager.

    Cons

    Sometimes the commission aspect of the job can be stressful but if you work hard enough your pay can be amazing.

    Advice to Management

    Longer training for new teammates, don’t just throw people new to retail right in especially into such a sales driven company.
