Shipping Clerk (Former Employee), Visalia, CA – September 5, 2014
Great work experience. Not a place you get hired at right away. A lot of temp jobs open up but that's all you are. A lot of upper management puts the blame on the lower employees, Not a lot of communication between everyone.

Highbay driver (Former Employee), Visalia – August 14, 2014
Pros: are there any here
Cons: no loyalty to hard workers
Was fired for answering phone when on the floor due to check being messed up. Only they were looking to dump me because I was a good worker but did not like that they passed me up for another position that I was the best suited for. Should have known when the manager told me he wanted to keep me as the back up and train the new guy that i stood no chance. – more... Yea thats right when i said i did not want to be the backup anymore they were looking for a reason to fire. Lame very lame. Should look at the individuals that are in the restrooms for hours a day, or the ones on their phones playing games in the S racks. – less
Cons: sometimes no breaks because of the work flow.
A typical day was very busy and consistent. I learned a lot of different vendor codes. The management wasn't that visibly on the floor. My co-workers was very helpful and some treated me the up most respect. There wasn't really a hard part but it was difficult to maintain under 1% error rating that was expected of you weekly. The most enjoyable part – more... of the job was at closing knowing if the work was done we could look forward to getting off early on the closing Friday. – less
Material Handler (Current Employee), Martinsville, Virginia – August 11, 2014
Horrible place to work. No option to advance within company. Everyone makes the same pay regardless of job. Some employees stick labels all day and make the same pay as employees unloading 40lb boxes all day.
Customer Service, Sales Associate (Former Employee), North Dartmouth, MA – July 7, 2014
a typical day involves putting clothes away and helping customers on the sales floor. i learned good customer service and enterprise selling. management is fair. co workers vary in age. the hardest part of the job is putting all the clothes away at the end of the night and dealing with rude customers. the most enjoyable part is working with good people – more... and receiving a bonus at the end of the year. – less

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Appleton, WI – June 5, 2014
Pros: very flexible hours for seasonal employees
Cons: seasonal positions
A typical day consisted of answering phone calls pertaining to customer orders, complaints, and warranty issues. I've learned to maintain a bubbly attitude no matter the situation, and make the customers happy. Management is pretty decent but there wasn't a lot of advancement opportunities.
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee), Gulfport, MS – May 25, 2014
Every day was a great new adventure. I got to work one-on-one with customers in order to find whatever best fit their needs. I learned how to better get things done as a team and how to give the best possible customer service I could provide. Any time I needed any help or advice on how to complete a task, someone was always by my side to make sure I – more... learned about exactly what I was doing. Every once in awhile rude or messy customers would come through, but everyone worked as a team to make sure everything was done in the possible way. My favorite part about working at VF Outlet was the leadership role I took on when we were left to manage the store. – less

After years working in design/development/buying it has been a complementary experience to work in this side of the business. Improving – more... my strategic planning experience and understanding cost negotiation as well as the ebb and flow of the development process.
VF is a place that not only challenged me daily but provided cohesive and productive feedback throughout my time at the company. – less
