Basic Retail Dead End Job
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 September 2014
They get you excited about the workplace when you first start giving you gifts and discounts for products but the afterwards the requirement for sales keeps going up, but the wage does not correlate with the amount you make for the store. There is no commission option for working here. Managers get a bonus when we reach a store goal, but the employees do not get a bonus or real recognition of a job well done.
Everyone is really cool they definitely hire good people but I feel bad for my co-workers too. Some of them need a full time job and that's not offered at fossil unless you are part of management, even as a key holder you aren't paid enough or given enough hours.
The job is not hard its pretty easy, make sales, greet everyone, you're paid hourly but you get warnings if you don't make your goal, the less sales you make the less hours you get.
Furthermore they always push for multiple item sales, if you force someone to buy many things, they will return all or some, which will bring your weekly sales down.
Asked many times for job advancement but always referred to the fossil careers page and most jobs are in Texas.
Everyone is nice, good vibe from everyone, the managers are approachable.
No option to sell based on commissions, low pay for hourly wage, and no full time hours.
