Store Manager (Former Employee) – Secaucus, NJ – August 11, 2017
A store with a fast paste business which Intailed opening shipments doing floor displaces , scheduling , data input , yearly reviews , shipping overseas and last but not least the stores main goal was customer service . Unfortunately the devison of barbizon closed and relocated in Pennsylvania in 1999
The company is great! store manager is terrible .... They violate state policies here(OSHA) and don't treat employees fairly ....prioritizing, scheduling and heartshare are definitely problems at this store.. I will never work at this store as long as the current store manager is here and I would advise anyone who is looking for employment the same
Outbound Logistics Supervisor (Former Employee) – Visalia, CA – June 29, 2017
Good place to gain lots of experience, but tough for people expecting performance based growth/reward. I worked at least 50 hours per week and got top reviews but my bonus and raises were same as everyone else.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Monroeville, AL – June 23, 2017
Well the most likely a day at work would be having an customer come in and bring back some clothes that did not fit. We would help assist the customer as much as we can. While working at VF Outlet I learned it was most importantly a groups effort job. I enjoyed that, we as a business could come together as a team and work completely and effectively. Management could tend to run late some times causing the employees to be late, but other than that they were very active on the floor helping along with the associates assisting the customers. Overall I love all my managers. The culture of the work place is slow and outdated. The mangers try to hire a younger generation but Cooperation clothing guidelines does not allow that generation to express themselves in a type of clothing store. The options for work is jeans and a dark color shirt,very drab. The hardest part of my job would be not being able to completely understand the problem of the customer, because if I'm free and I do not clearly get what the customer is trying to relay I have to grab another associate and stop them from their daily task to understand. The most exciting part is knowing that you did great at work and you were able to do more than what your expected, that makes me very happy!
Very precise with operations, lack of communication and fast paced
Floor Supervisor (Current Employee) – King of Prussia, PA – June 21, 2017
The energy in coming in fluctuates depending on the time of day. A lot of pressure is targeted depending on the employee and communication isn't consistant. Flexibility is usually an issue that comes with lack of understanding fellow peers.
Fast paced, precised in operations
Enviorment seemingly are overwhelming, pressure is targeted, understanding and communication is lacked
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Shenandoah, VA – June 14, 2017
Each morning you would flip bundles, cut tickets, and write numbers, then proceed to sew on pockets as fast as you could. Sometimes work didn't fit, or material so stiff it would not go through the folder. Depending on how many bundles you completed how much money you made. Best to sew with quality in mind above speed, since if a garment came back for repair, you usually could have sewn a whole bundle of 42 pants in the same amount of time.
I combine accuracy with speed to produce a quality garment which not only provided myself with a reasonable living but the consumer with a great pair of jeans.
Depending on who was in management whether there was an open door to suggestion and complaints.
Work place was competitive and friendly.
Hardest part of the job was when either material wasn't cut right or sew correctly causing difficulties in each operation that proceeded it.
The most enjoyable part of the job was coworkers who became friends. Also, I really to sew and to push myself.
Good job, pay rate, benefits
Sometimes quality of cutting or sewing cause you to loose money.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Commerce, GA – May 27, 2017
Vf Outlet is an outstanding place to work. The managers are not just good at their job, but they are also people who you will never forget. They help you with work, of course but they also teach you many life lessons and help mold you into a better person. If there were more advancement opportunity in the company I would still be there. That is the only flaw. If you are looking for a flexible part time job, Vf without a doubt would be your best option.
Great people, flexible
No growth in the company, hours vary by time of year.(all retail jobs are the same way though!)
