    Pros

    40% off, sometimes 60% off certain brands. Fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is not good. Must work weekends and holidays. Management takes advantage of employees working weekends and take several Saturdays and Sundays off.

    Pros

    amazing benefits package, positive culture, superiors are veterans with company so training comes from experienced Buckle managers

    Cons

    depending on your store volume you will feel over-worked and under-paid. the bonus and pay structure is complicated and convoluted to say the least. Because it is still a "small company" there are a lot of politics involved in the promotion process. Too much is based on who you know

    Pros

    Room to grow, fun and fast paced.

    Cons

    Management can be very unprofessional. Pay is great for managers, but not for associates.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on work than petty issues with employees and leave drama at home.

    Pros

    Ability to make more based on your sales ability. Sales training was excellent.

    Cons

    Slow days at work sucked for pay. The leadership was terrible at my location. Worked for 2.5 years, missed less days than I have in fingers due to sick days, was asked to go to leadership meetings but was never given a raise like everyone else was in that position. When I'd take vacation (twice) I'd come back and not be scheduled for a week.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Awesome discount, corporate folks are nice. No overnight shifts, yay!

    Cons

    I had a bad experience where I worked, but I think that could have been due to the manager I had. I had a great experience with people from corporate and higher up management. It is retail, so hours are terrible of course. But I've worked a lot of retail and The Buckle was probably my favorite company.
