Sales associate (Current Employee) – Oshkosh, WI – August 21, 2017
A typical day consists of greeting and helping customers to the fullest. Checking in on customers to see if they need help with anything to make their shopping experience easier. Employees learns customer service skills and how to cashier. One's ability to communicate with others increases. Having good co workers makes working at Van Heusen enjoyable. The hardest part of the job is helping difficult customers.
Competitions with other stores for prizes, Good coworkers, flexible hours
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Saint George, UT – August 15, 2017
Overall Van Heusen was a good place to work. Since it was a smaller store it was easy to keep up the merchandising and recovery of the store. I would rate it as one of the best places I ever worked at.
Sales Associate/Shipment (Current Employee) – Glendale, AZ – August 6, 2017
A typical day is unloading boxes and seperating them. What I learned is patience with customers. Management is fine, just not enough hours Hardest part of the job is keeping the store neat when its busy Most enjoyable part of the employees
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Marysville, WA – July 21, 2017
While PVH provides high quality clothes at great prices, they are a horrible company to work for. Unless you are management, you receive no benefits of any kind (healthcare, sick/vacation time accrual). It is a minimum wage, dead end job with no opportunity for advancement. Management also failed to understand that sometimes family needs to come first, and that they are also subject to flexible scheduling rather than scheduling themselves so that they can be with their family to go to church, etc. Everyone deserves the same consideration.
Free food during holiday weekends, great co-workers
Here I learned a lot on how to work the cash register and how to push sales always look for that ad on item. The management team was flexible and understanding of your other rows & goals in life. Made good friends here.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – West Branch, MI – June 29, 2017
I had the pleasure of working with very wonderful fellow employees at Van Heusen. We had a very fun fast paced organized environment and we were able to complete tasks in a very timely manner. The managers were very flexible with scheduling and making sure hobbies and interests outside of work were not overlooked.
Well lengthed breaks and a very friendly enviornment
Due to recent changes within corporate to down size titles of employment, there has been a shortage of employees to help cover the store. It is incredibly overpacked with merchandise, the layout is cramped and no security measures are being utilized to deter theft. Yet, scheduling is incredibly flexible, management could be better, staff is great to work with, and hours are abundant.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – June 15, 2017
I love working here because it was such a loving staff and if you did you best then it would show at the end of the day. A day at the store could be slow or could be busy but whatever that day was it always ending a good day if you had the right attitude.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Daytona Beach, FL – June 12, 2017
I liked working there, made good friends with everyone and the assistant managers, but the manager himself was quite terrible. He treated everyone differently, creating somewhat of a enviroment with sides. The funny part is, the people on his side only did so to get immunity from lack of hours. If the manager didn't like you, you got 1 shift, and if he did, you got 3-4 shifts.
FLOOR SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – Woodstock, GA – June 5, 2017
Overall was a great place to work. It was a smaller place so you get to know everyone who works there and that makes working with everyone so much better. Customers were always nice to talk to and the average day was just simply making the store loo nice and greeting everyone who walked in the door and helped every customer. The only downfall I would say is the lack of guaranteed hours and a lack in good pay. Hardest part of the job is the schedules because they are random every week so it is hard to build a school or any other schedule around it. Most enjoyable part is being able to work and get close with all the employees that work there.
Floor Supervisor (Current Employee) – United States – May 31, 2017
I learned a lot about merchandising, setting up a floorset, and the interworkings of how a business runs. Supposed to be part time but always end up working between 30-40 hours a week. The hardest part of the job is the difficult customers who feel entitled to coupons and expect you to bend over backwards to help them. The most enjoyable part of the people you get to work with when the store is adequately staffed.
Want the Best of The Best but doesn't want to pay for it
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Eagan, MN – May 3, 2017
They are a great company to work for, but they expect to much of their managers. I have been working for them for 7 years started as a sales associate and worked all the way up to Store Manager. After reaching store manager I not longer have growth potential.
Customer service (Former Employee) – Canton, GA – April 19, 2017
For this position the hours were not set at all; mostly one day a week. Part of management is not the greatest, but this may have change in the last year or two. Not reasonable for paying bills if you are just a sales associate.
