Pros: close to home, friendly work environment, casual dress code
Cons: short lunches, little downtime, lots of meetings
From the second I walk into the office, I go nonstop til I leave. My day is filled with cross-functional meetings with Merchandising, Operations, Website and Creative Development teams ensuring that Dockers.com is performing at a high level. Due to company changes, I have stepped up as acting Manager for my Digital Marketing team since November 2013 – more... and currently reporting to the Marketing Director of Global Ecommerce.
Data driven marketing is a significant part of my job. I thoroughly deep dive into the analytics of our global site to seek out opportunities to drive sales and ROI. I am personally responsible for the constant evaluation and improvement of our website’s consumer experience, creative development, product promotions, and seasonal launches. Due to the nature of the fashion retail industry, there is a constant and consistent change in the marketplace; it is my job to make sure that we keep up with trends and always stay ahead of the curve. Down time is something I rarely encounter. Some may find this stressful, but I thrive in this work environment. I thoroughly enjoy project managing and keeping my team structured, focused, and thinking positively. I would say the most difficult part of my day is managing the time sensitivity of my projects. At a given time I will have 10-15 different projects requests. It is my responsibilities to not only manage these projects, but my time, the people involved, and the sensitivity of each request. Since so many people are involved I need to make sure that everyone on my team is on the same page. – less
