    Pros

    Really relaxed enviroment, you get decent pay ($8.00), can be good but almost always given good hours

    Cons

    They don't care about anything, too many employees just don't care and wont show up, or always call off, and don't get in trouble. Could pay higher, Understaffed, 25% discount in-store, female managers are rude, ignore availability and requests to change availability

    I have been working at VF Outlet part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Mostly friendly helpful staff, good for a first job, will increase pay after a year but only a couple cents, 2 out of 3 managers are great

    Cons

    Minimum wage obviously they don't value their sales associates at that pay and district manager is awful, no paid time off for part time

    Advice to Management

    District managers are extremely rude, never compliments things done good, only points out flaws.
