    Current Employee - Retail Sales Associate 

    I have been working at The North Face part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Overall organizational values are great and decent discounts

    Cons

    The management is very poor and that more comes from the lack of communication and inconsistency from higher ups. A lot of pressure is put on the store manager to exceed and that cuts back on the quality since there is so much going on. At the end of the day the associates are hit the harders as they are not put in the best situations to exceed.
