Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDAugust 9, 2017
While many big businesses and companies seem unapproachable and intimidating, my experience with The North Face was the opposite. Being hired was an invaluable work opportunity which allowed for me to garner a higher appreciation of the retail atmosphere. The culture of the store was easy going for the most part with some intermixed hardship regarding differences of opinions and the stress of possibly under-performing. I was able to learn a plethora of news ways to handle uncomfortable situations when confronting customers and co-workers which was possibly the hardest part of the job as well. Management was productive and efficient with few shortcomings.

horrible management
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Tannersville, PAAugust 6, 2017
It Was horrible working for North Face. The Management was horrendous and the overall atmosphere of the workplace was unacceptable. The managers crack under pressure and lash out on their workers.

Good perks but people are burnt out.
Product Manager (Former Employee) –  Alameda, CAAugust 1, 2017
People are really cool to work with and the campus is great. There are a lot of people that are burnt out and overworked due to budget reasons and not being able to hire more employees.
Pros
Good perks such as annual team trips and monthly happy hour events.
Cons
You can get overworked.

I had a great time working for North Face. I worked at the outlet store in san Francisco. You get great deals when working for them. I would go and work for them again if they had a store close by.

Northface is mostly busy but sometimes slow. The mangagement is easy to work with. The whole point at The Northface is to work as a team while helping others find their appropriate gear needed for different weather conditons.

Making sure all of the products were neatly presented in the store. Packing in the back, checking inventory, and making sure everything is restocked as needed. Checked in packages that arrived from shipments daily, as well as shipping out products to other stores.

A fun work place!
Sales Associate (seasonal) (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 3, 2017

College Job....that's it.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  North Charleston, SCJune 19, 2017
A typical day includes clocking in and waiting for customers to come into the store. You'll mention any discounts or sales that are current. Everyday the store and sale associate has sales goals that must be met by the end of the day. Yes, you get discounts on items, but if you're looking for steady hours and a steady income keep looking.
Pros
Discounts, Work/Life Balance, Flexible
Cons
Poor Pay, Short hours

Loved it and still do!
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Allen, TXJune 15, 2017
I love the job, and I still do. It started off great but now it's coming around the time where it's slow. So nobody is getting hours to pay bills. And I need set hours to make ends meet

The North Face ! Good Company
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  City of Sunrise, FLJune 1, 2017
Typical day at work could be greeting customers at door, working the sales floor or ringing on register

>Company does great volunteer work and they also have outdoor participation that you do. which is fun and makes you feel good.

>manager doesn't see potential in employees that been there since the start. hires people over you then you have to help them out. which is a slap in the face.

other than that it is a good place to work. co workers are work as a team .
Pros
great company
Cons
bad mangement

Great for students and young adults not in school
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 29, 2017
It's a fast paced environment and requires you to know a lot of information about the product. It's a laid back, casual place and depending on how management treats you, you'll be fine.
Pros
No uniform, holiday pay for full time
Cons
DM and holiday turnover

Going through changes
Unknown (Former Employee) –  Alameda, CAMay 26, 2017
The company has changed a lot recently, and is a bit unsettled. Used to be an amazing place to work, grow, learn. Large size and many layers of upper management make navigating the waters harder than before.

Better than most retail
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Paramus, NJMay 12, 2017
It is your typical retail except for the fact that it is an outdoor specialty retailer. You will learn a lot about sports you probably never heard of. Most of the store managers across the company are really chill people. Just be friendly to customers and task when you have to and you are set.
Pros
Cool gear for cheap
Cons
It still is retail
