    Pros

    50% staff discount on product, fun environment, always something to do and never really gets that boring

    Cons

    Management system is a bit of a mess as store is relatively new still, rota gets changed a lot of the time and staff need to check it pretty much every shift

    Advice to Management

    Don't get 4 different people to create the rota

    I worked at Timberland part-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, easy work hours, first to pick through apparel perks. Not a bad company to work for for a high school student.

    Cons

    Low outlet mall pay, generally older customers are hard to deal with and sometimes irritating, management seemed disconnected with employees at times, lack of growth potential

    Advice to Management

    Understand your employees better and use that to make them work harder, not by being unfair or threatening

    I worked at Timberland part-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed the flexible schedules and the fact that the job very rarely involved cleaning up after others. Retail in general is nice.

    Cons

    I did not like how few hours I was scheduled for. I think that my store simply had too many employees and only gave each of us like 10 hours per week.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing much. The managers at this Timberland store are very professional, nice, and friendly. I liked working for them very much.

    Pros

    The corporate headquarters has a dining hall that offers low-price, high-quality healthy food options for all employees. They also have an on-site garden and volunteers pick the produce daily for employees to purchase fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers.

    Cons

    Very unique culture so may be difficult for some individuals to feel like they fit in. There are no food options relatively close so although the dining hall has great options, it does get old quickly.
