I’ve worked here for THREE DAYS and I hate it so much already. Workers were EXTREMELY rude and unwelcoming my first day and so unhelpful. I was put in the stock room to open boxes and sensor because they have absolutely no stock team. Coworkers AND assistant managers saw me struggle to get boxes multiple times and stood there and watched as the fell on me. Their hostile attitudes and the atmosphere did not change the next two days. I am seriously considering quitting because $9.50 an hour is not worth being treated like garbage, especially as a full time college student. Plus if they need more people to unpackage shipment, they bring the boxes onto the sales floor, unpack them and stack all the items on the cash wrap to sensor, WHILE IGNORING CUSTOMERS WHO NEED ASSISTANCE . Worst VF store I have ever worked at.
My 40 year employment ended by termination/lay off due to job elimination without notice. I had looked forward to retiring here but was sadly disappointed.
Not beating sales goals. Some times 1 person would be scheduled on a Saturday and make much more money due to the traffic on Saturday. Then someone may be scheduled Monday morning and only make 4 sales compared to the 20 on Saturday. This can make it difficult to predict star of the month ( star of the month gets 75% off). BUT if your management team is good (like mine was) they should be able to choose who deserves the star of the month award. Another stressful part is morning meetings 1 day every week. If Vans payed more for these it would be worth it but it just not fun to have to go to your job for 2 hours on your day off .
If you were in charge, what would you do to make VF Corporation a better place to work?
I would pick more professional leads to run my shifts so work gets done also make sure my employees are treated fairly equal.
