Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) – Florida – July 28, 2016
A fun place to work if you are just out of college. A lot of space for promotion. You have to be willing to work weekends. It is a fun company to work for and the people in management are understandable and nice to work for.
fun starter job with little pay and no room for growth
assistant (Former Employee) – Stamford, CT – July 13, 2016
vv culture is fun. ice cream truck wednesdays, kegs and eggs, etc--perks. however, pay is minimal and there is little to no balance in workload. if you are not a favorite- it is impossible for growth. the company has grown too rapidly and has a lack of procedures and processes which makes each aspect of your job very difficult. great place to start but not to stay....
A typical day working at Vineyard Vines was very laid back and chill. Customers would walk in, we would greet them, answer any questions they had about the clothing and any sales we had going on. I learned how to sell merchandise and to best fit what the customer wanted depending on what they were on the lookout for. The management was awesome. They were on the sales floor helping customers and doing what they could to increase sales. My co-workers was what made the job jun. We all got along and would joke around when no one was in the store. We had a great relationship and would help out other co-workers if they needed it. The hardest part of the job was just keeping enough merchandise on the floor without running out. The most enjoyable part was seeing the customer walk away happy with the merchandise that was picked out for them.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Georgia – May 16, 2016
The best retailer I have worked for. It is still a very young company so there is a lot of area for improvement in day to day operations. However even with that the culture and talent of people have by far been the best that I have seen in 10 years of working retail.
There needs to be better turn around on management that underperforms
A typical day here consists of clocking in, folding clothes, cleaning dressing rooms, restocking merchandise, greeting customers, working the register, re organizing the t-shirt wall for the billionth time, having lunch and then doing it all over again. This job has taught me a lot about time management and has developed my people skills. Co-workers were nice and fun, the hardest part of the job is constantly having to re-fold everything, especially the t-shirt wall. The most enjoyable part was the discount, 65% off all merchandise, excluding cashmere which had a lower discount.
Sales / Marketing Representative (Former Employee) – Oxford, MS – November 5, 2015
The CEO's created this company based off, " The good life" which means to enjoy your job. I think its a great company to work for but you get paid very little for how often you work and where you live.
I enjoyed working at Vineyard Vines. The management staff and employees were very easy to get along with and made work enjoyable. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work in a laid-back work environment while helping customers shop in the store. The hardest part of the job was being on my feet for 9 hours a day. I learned how to sell things to people while working at Vineyard Vines.
