    Great friendships and skills that will last a lifetime. The training at Buckle is the best training you will receive anywhere. If you want to do anything related in business, marketing, or sales- Buckle will teach you fundamental salesmanship

    1. Pushing people for the Buckle Credit Card
    2. Leader Meetings (need to be more interactive and not redundant
    3. Higher hourly pay

    Management needs to think about what they're doing in order for the teammates to be inspired

    Pros

    They teach you really great ways to sell. The team is really fun, and outgoing. There is room to grow in the company.

    Cons

    They want you to recruit people even if there are plenty of workers so it can be hard to get the hours you want.

    I worked at The Buckle part-time

    Pros

    Loved all my co-workers!

    Cons

    Part of the job is being very hands on with customers! If a customer told me she was just looking I was instructed to press her for details or bring her outfits or tell her about things she obviously didn't care about.

    Advice to Management

    None!

    I have been working at The Buckle full-time

    Pros

    This is not a place where you just fold clothes and check people out. You get what you put in and its fair.

    Cons

    It is still a retail store so long shifts and a lot of standing.

    Limited growth opportunity within the company

    Management was good for most part. Creating a more motivating atmosphere would be encouraged.

    Pros

    You get to outfit the guest and help them find their true style within Buckle. The pay is commission based and has you work fast paced to become successful!

    Cons

    There aren't many hours given after holiday if you work part-time but holiday hours also are a bummer because the mall is open very late.
