CUSTOMER SERVICE (Former Employee) – leesburg, va – April 1, 2015
I would re-stock the shelves and ring out the customers. Learned time management, how to order special items for customers and complete projects without help of others. the most enjoyable part of my job was the interaction with customers and having regulars come visit me.

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Danville, KY – September 26, 2017
The work itself is definitely not worth what they pay you per hour, especially considering you're laid off for weeks at a time. The supervisor has an awful attitude and deliberately picks arguments with new employees in a pathetic attempt to assert dominance just so she can scream in your face and threaten to fire you. Terrible person for a high end position.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Wrentham, MA – September 13, 2017
Great company to work for, a lot of stress and a lot of responsibilities with a multi million dollar store a lot of high expectations, be prepared to fail at times! Keep to yourself do your job finish your shift and you will survive! Good luck to whom ever applies!!

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – August 24, 2017
A typical day at work consists of helping stupid customers who don't know how to speak English. I learned that you don't get paid for your worth. The management sucks big time. The hardest part of the job was finding the motivation to show up. The most enjoyable part of the job was clocking out and going home.
Productive and great crew members to work with. Very outgoing
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Central Valley, NY – August 22, 2017
A typical day at work was so fun for me. I got to enjoy the positive vibes and outgoing personalities throughout the day. Everyday I learned something new about the company and my co-workers. I learned a lot about the company that I never knew before.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – July 27, 2017
Timberland is a good first job to have but I wouldn't stay there forever. Sometimes the hours suck and you might only get 1 or 2 days a week as a part-time worker but hey it is part-time. Employees there are also pretty cool. Most enjoyable part is that you get to meet people from all over the world. There really is no hard part about unless it is your first job and you are new to retail and customer service. The main thing is you have to talk to customers even if you don't understand them.
Slow workplace where responsibility is passed around and important tasks are not taken seriously
Sales Associate and Stock (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – July 24, 2017
Timberland is unpredictable when it comes to how the day may go. Work may be very busy some days, and completely slow on other days. The cleanliness at Timberland is not the best. Staff will wait weeks to actually begin cleaning something and no one, including managers are not enthusiastic about working. It seems as if no one likes working there. Hardest part of job is stock, no one cares or treats the stock room well. They leave dirty, and complain when no one else cleans it. I do enjoy helping customers.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – PA – July 24, 2017
Most days are spent trying to deter shoplifters instead of focusing on customer service. The register system is slow and outdated. Information that should be easy to find, isn't. And unnecessary information that is not store specific is blanketed on all reports. Most customers are a delight to assist, and the employees are some of the best I have ever worked with.
allowing everyone to participate in community service
Great company and great people who really enjoy making a difference in not only the retail world but also their communities. Timberland has heart (and great consumer goods!) and is something I will always look for in any employer.
40 hours of PTO to dedicate to community service, awesome co-workers & people, Timberland really cares about their employee's happiness
Great corporate structure and tons of CSR events to help you feel good about your employer. This company is the real deal when it comes to taking care of the environment and doing what is best for employees.
Sales clerk and stocking (Former Employee) – Gaffney, SC – July 18, 2017
Pick and process products to be shipped out as specialty product How important being precise is I have great managers who treated me with respect The work place culture was great because of the way the employees was treated The hardest part of the job was learning how to be precise and very productive but I did a great job at both The most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction of knowing that I did my job to the very best of my ability and having the supervisors recognize it
We worked intil the last shippment was done and out the door
In my opinion there is one great manager, she was recently promoted from my understanding but she's easy to talk to and willing to offer a helping hand. One manager doesn't have an understanding of all of the store functions, and there's another who's to in your face. I only felt comfortable working with one manager, the rest I felt like I had to put on a poker face going to work every day. Horrible hours, have no idea why the permanent staff continues to work there. The coworkers I worked with were nice, took the time to train me correctly.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – City of Sunrise, FL – July 16, 2017
This job was just a temporary job. My job was to make the customers feel welcomed, help with any questions that the customer need assistance with. Keeping a clean and neat environment. Going back together customers certain sizes or unloading boxes, climbing ladders etc.
