Hard working and Productive Workplace
Sales Lead (Current Employee), Dallas, TXMarch 19, 2015
Oakley is a hard working and productive workplace, but we are still able to have fun with each other. Some days are incredibly busy, but the overall experience has been great. I've enjoyed working for the company and hope to find a job equally as good.

Item Technology
Sales Associate/Cashier/Stock (Former Employee), Orlando, FLMarch 1, 2015
Learning the technology of how they make the lenses for their sunglasses was the most insightful part of becoming an Oakley Sales Associate. It was really interesting because Oakley is known for their patented technology on them, and no other company out there can produce or fabricate the material like Oakley can. Also Oakley is the official sponsor for the Army.

Productive fun place with lots of business.
Sales Associate present (Former Employee), The Woodlands, TxFebruary 17, 2015
Pros: the company send you cute little gifts throughout the year and you get employee staff dress.
Cons: if you work 4 hours, you get a 10-15 min break, if you're a manager, you only get a 30 min break
Oakley was a pretty cool place to work for. When I first started they teach you how to build the glasses from the frame to the little Oakley symbol on the side. Co-workers are all amazing and the Manager himself is awesome! After about three months of working there, I was promoted to Sales Lead which is a rank under the Assistant Manager. You are able to open and close the store with an associate present of course and you get a pass code and also your set of keys.

Lack of Hours
Sales Specialist (Current Employee), New York, NYFebruary 10, 2015
Pros: fun environment, free clothes every quarter, generous employee discount
Cons: management hired too many employees so when time is slow, everyone except management
Don't get me wrong, Oakley is a fun place to work, I'm passionate about the brand, and the people here are cool. It's just the total lack of payroll hours and I was told by management that you get hours "based on your performance and availability". I go to school so that I can get something better down the road, so why does that count against me? Plus, I work hard in organizing the stock rooms and helping clients when needed, so why am I constantly getting less than 10 hours a week. How can anyone support themselves with income like that??!!

Fun work place
Retail General Manager (Current Employee), ChicagoFebruary 1, 2015
This is a great company. I have learned so much from basic retail management to learning how to manage my time between multiple stores. I have experienced so many great things that have developed my self as a manager and a person. I have had the privilege of traveling to open stores and improve inefficiencies for existing ones. The most enjoyable part of the job for me besides the travel is those I work with and for. They have taken a lot of time to help develop me.

Sales Professional (Current Employee), New York, NYJanuary 5, 2015
Oakley is an amazing workplace. The staff is amazing and there is something new to do everyday. meeting people from all around the world keep you on your toes as you'll never know what is next to come through those doors. For a small location, the store got a high volume of traffic, keeping the work environment exciting.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAJanuary 2, 2015
Pros: nothing

As an associate at an Oakley you're basically an underpaid and uninsured slave.

Cha cha change
Old-timer (Current Employee), Foothill Ranch, CANovember 7, 2014
Pros: cool headquarters, on-site events, cafeteria, across street from a mountain bike paradise - whiting ranch
Cons: spirit is draining away slowly. not the company it once was. oh well.
Company is shifting from emphasis on collaboration to emphasis on production while cutting costs. Many good people have left or are leaving. Some parts of the company still have a great attitude. But newer managers, while focused and smart, are joyless and judgmental. Teams are working short-handed. The tide is changing and the coolness is evaporating. It's all about the numbers now.

RX TECHNICAL ACCOUNT SUPPORT (Former Employee), Foothill Ranch, CAOctober 17, 2014
Pros: employee outings, perks, gifts, etc...
Cons: long commute
Oakley is a one of a kind place to work. The minute you walk up to the building, you are taken into another world. Then stepping inside is another place in itself! The atmosphere, the people you work with, the vibe in the place while you are there, its just uplifting! It makes you want to be there everyday. My boss was the best boss I have ever had. She was just the best! I can't say enough about her. I miss my job so much, I wish I didn't have to leave it, but moving to Washington was in our plans.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Austin, TXAugust 21, 2014
Pros: meeting new people everyday, fun atmosphere, employee benifits
Cons: folding the same stack of t-shirts 1, 000 times a day
Oakley is a fun company to work for. It can get a overwhelming on Black Friday and during the back to school sales, but it is a fun place to work. The employees really are a team and work together to create the ultimate Oakley experience.

Fun layed back work environment
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Novi, MIAugust 21, 2014
Working for Oakley an average work-day consist of maintaining a clean work environment, greeting and assisting customers accordingly and completing all task. While working for Oakley I learned that Oakley stands buy their product and customer service is there main priority. My co-workers all have different backgrounds which made it a fun work environment. The hardest part of the job would have to be when the store receives a large shipment when the store has to do a large transfer. The most enjoyable part of the job would be working with the customers.
