Corporate Visual Merchandiser (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – February 20, 2017
Fast pace, energetic job that sets an enjoyable shopping experience for each guest. Buckle is about customer service and building relationships which leads to repeat customers. The culture is always positive and uplifting but feedback is expected. I learned how to run my own business, schedule, timeline myself, lead others, and set the tone for the business. The most enjoyable part about my job is making repeat customers who love there product and bring in there families and friends.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Strongsville, OH – February 17, 2017
I was doing more than expected for my position at times I wouldn't get the credit I deserved, although I loved working for the buckle they try their best to be family orientaed however the hours they wanted me to work I never saw my family to much which is why I quit.
Have the possibility to travel and work hands on with your regional manager and district manager
This Job was very flexible with a demanding high school schedule. This job allowed me to participate in choir, as well as twirling in the band, being drum major, and participate in theater shows all while working a job! Wonderful employees to work with and an exceptional boss.
Freight Coordinator (Current Employee) – Sandy, UT – February 11, 2017
An enjoyable work environment where you learn how to communicate with people and make their shopping experience more enjoyable. Management is fantastic and it's hard work keeping up with the speed of the store but you learn quickly and it makes the job fly by.
Sales lead (Former Employee) – Overland Park, KS – February 3, 2017
I loved my position in Buckle, but grew tired of the constant push push push sales environment. Out of the 3 managers i had 2 were amazing and i would without a double work for them any day, on the other hand i had one manger that really drove me to the edge and made me hate the job and company. Overall the work environment was great though, fun teammates, commission based, and plenty of room to grow.
Great benefits, commission based, team environment
Fun place to work with a fantastic team. Great environment
Freight Coordinator (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – February 1, 2017
A typical day is spent in the backroom. I receive boxes, unpack, sort, sensor, and fold or hang the product. I organize the product that is in the backroom as well as prepare product for the sales associates to take out on the floor. The manager is easy to work with and for. She is very open and caring. The culture in my store is like a family. It is a close and fun group that makes the job more than just a job.
A typical day at work revolved around ensuring each guest with a positive shopping experience that would leave them wanting to come back. I loved helping the guests, but it did get overwhelming when we got busy. The manager made sure that all of her employees remained positive, and helped with every aspect of the job, when she could see us getting stressed.
It was fun at first and everyone there is really nice! They make you feel welcome but the pay wasn't that great. Even though we did have 3% commission off of what we sold it still wasn't a lot. We had to be really pushy sales people and I hated that. I know that when I come to a store I don't want someone breathing down my neck the whole time trying to get me to purchase their products. We had to get their sizes and names, pick out outfits based on what they were looking at, and keep introducing product as long as they were in the store. It does not sound bad as it was. It was horrible.
Key holder / Assistant Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Mount Pleasant, SC – January 26, 2017
A typical day at work was opening/closing including all store duties, setting up a daily sales goal, assisting associates in sales, support in fulfilling visual merchandising standards, active networking in local areas, setting up client credit accounts, and check in/ ship out freight.
A fast paced enviroment with goals to meet but the atmosphere was fun and welcoming
Leader in Training (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – January 25, 2017
At Buckle I learned so many positive things about retail. I learned how to work off a commission pay. I learned how to greet customers and make their shopping experience a unique one. Buckle really taught me how to sell, why the guest not only wanst said item but why they need it and why it will make their life better, it eliminates that buyers regret and the customer stays happy.
There is always something you can be doing, like folding clothes or fixing visual standards. It is a great way to meet and connect with people that come into your store and provide them with great service. Very boring when the days are slow so you must find ways to keep yourself buys.
