I merchandised clothing in departments. I balanced the vault. Set up the registers. Opened and Closed the stored. Resolved customer issues. I was Manager On Duty for several periods of times while short of management. I learned additional Management skills. Management was good about working with employees schedules. There were many excellent co-works. Some would come in on their days off to help out. The hardest part of my job was Freight Days. The most enjoyable part was helping customers and up selling / cross selling.
short drive from home.
Advancement. Passed over for Asst Mgr 3 time. Covered the position as MOD during those periods.
Great place to work, you were on your own, doing your productivity at your pace, as long as you had your job done by the end of the day no one would bother you, it they would reopen I would go back to work for them.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Gulfport, MS – August 25, 2016
When I worked at the VF, it was one of the best time in my work history. The management is great. If you need help with something, they will stop doing what ever it is they are doing and come help the best way possible. My co-workers and I always worked as a team to get the store clean, to find certain items for customers, checking customers out, and bringing more products out to the floor. Here I learned more about team building because people here are more willing to work together to get the job done.

Department Trainer (Current Employee) – Visalia, CA – August 9, 2016
I work at the VF Outdoor DC in Visalia, CA and I have been wokring for the company for 10 years. VF is definitely a great place to start out if you have no dc experience but you do have to prove yourself because the turnover rate is pretty high. I have worked in multiple departments and there is a substantial amount of ways to move up the ladder. There are a lot of internal job postings to move around and apply for leadership with the required years of experience. Every job is going to have its ups and downs, drama, gossip, hostile people but VF has taken appropriate actions to resolve any time of conflict. The benefits are not great but I'm glad to have it offered along with the flexible spending account that I always sign up for in open enrollment. We do have a yearly raise and a yearly bonus as well, along with numerous paid for luncheons, annual picnic and holiday parties where tons of prizes are given. We also have an employee sale every so often where full time employees get to purchase 2nd quality and donations quality items for dirt cheap which is always exciting to look forward to. Overall, I enjoy working for this dc. They have been good to me and I see more years to come in my timeline at VF.
opportunities to move up, paid activities, yearly bonus, great friends for life
not as many raises given, medical coverage is a bit pricey
Associate (Former Employee) – Elizabeth, NJ – August 5, 2016
Working at the VF Outlet there was never a dull moment there was always something to do and people to provide great customer service to. On the job I learned how to provide great customer service and how to deal with different personalities, the managers did everything possible to provide a great work environment and they care about their employees. My Coworkers were helpful and a pleasure to deal with; the hardest part of the job I would say, is keeping the store clean because there are always people coming in and out but the most enjoyable part of my job was getting to interact with different people all day.
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) – Birch Run, MI – August 1, 2016
A typical day at work was to open the store, then balance previous day's sales and make the bank run. Receive all shipments and process the paperwork for them. Accept all inventory into system and make any necessary adjustments. Process monthly reports for corporate office. I did whatever management requested, including staying over to clear the warehouse to have room for the next day's shipments. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the trucks and processing the product to be ready for the sales floor. My favorite part of the job was processing the paperwork and assembling the monthly reports.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – West Frankfort, IL – July 24, 2016
The job was fun and easy my co workers were all awesome women. The only complaint I have is I was only getting like 12 hours a week and then when I got a second job they cut me down to one 4hr shift a week.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Story City, IA – July 23, 2016
This was a good job for my first one and was actually the only place that would hire me with no experience. However, I did work will all high school students so it did get dramatic. They were good on making sure you got the days you requested off as well.
during the week things are rather dead, and we work on projects and freight. the weekends are fast paced and a little hectic at times, a lot of employees leave after their first weekend. but this is mostly because the fact that this store is located in a popular tourist attraction near DFW Airport. so there's lots of travelers and language barriers to get through
