The most satisfactory retail leadership position I ever had!
Stock Supervisor (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – August 21, 2016
Having worked in retail sales & leadership for nearly two decades, I assumed I never would find an employer who truly valued its employees' values and opinions until I joined The North Face, Boston, MA. The leadership treated its staff like family; In doing so, people respected one another and intrinsically co created a culture of accountability and productivity.
Organic work environment, fair compensation, balanced schedule, and one hour lunches!
SALES CONSULTANT (Former Employee) – Freeport, ME – August 7, 2016
The best job and environment I had ever worked for. Management great and co-workers like a family. Being an extreme sport person it was easy to become the top sales person in this location as I love the product and my teammates around me.
Sales associate (Former Employee) – Limerick, PA – July 10, 2016
A day would consist of me staying in my assigned zone on the floor and aiding all customers in any questions they may have, or size adjustment needed. The work culture was one of the most despicable places i've worked for, although the company itself is a very dependable known brand so i did enjoy that aspect of working there.
fun place to work just wish they would of worked around my school schedule
Full Time Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Michigan City, IN – June 23, 2016
Had a great experience there just wish I could of stayed longer but had to go to pursue my goal of obtaining my Bachelor's Degree. Management was sub-par in how they handled some situations with the store and seemed to not truly care about it's employees.
Visual Associate (Current Employee) – Tulalip, WA – April 21, 2016
I did the merchandising and visual displays at the north face. It was a fun job. There was however no room for promotion within the company. They only like to hire from the outside for management positions,
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Birmingham, AL – April 3, 2016
It is an ok place to work but can be tough during the busy season. Expect long hours on your feet and not many breaks. Some opportunity to move up but the management can be difficult to work with some times.
During my time at TNF I enjoyed the outdoorsy culture of most of the staff members. Towards the end of my 3 years I saw the company steering away from hiring folks that had outdoor passions or experience which I think will hurt them in the long run. I loved my staff in Columbus, OH (PT, FT, and management were great). The company offers some great benefits for their staff if they want to pursue outdoor things and FT is offered health benefits which is awesome. The chance for advancement in the company is really good. I started as PT and worked my way up to a sales manager.
This company is well managed. They follow company rules almost exactly to standard and provided an excellent work environment. The training is only difficult if you have a hard time memorizing facts and different technologies. It is fun to sell to customers and overall has been a great experience.
Discounts, management, always know your hours
Almost seasonal type of job. Business is slow after winter months
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Evanston, IL – March 1, 2016
TNF in Evanston is a great place to work, with a boutique feel due to it being a smaller store; We pride ourselves on our customer service and our team environment. The only disadvantage is the compensation and difficulty to get hours during the warm months of the year, due to low customer traffic.
