    Goal oriented; team environment. You have the choice to merchandise on your own. It helps to add to your resume.

    Pros

    Product is ever-changing and it's a face paced job. Not one you sit and wait for someone to come to the register before you have something to do. Time flies when you're working. I get to use my creativity in merchandising as long as it's in company guidelines which are sent out weekly. Buckle cares about my career and success.

    Cons

    it's not just cons of working at Buckle, it's all retail. Long hours and missing Holidays with my family.

    Advice to Management

    take more risks with Visual Ideas!

    Commission on all sales (3%), fast-building customer base, AWESOME and talented management, 40% off of purchases as an employee.
