Customer service/Sales (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 22 January 2017
working at fossil, wasn't the best environment to work in, due to the negligence of the store manager, and rude employees, other than that serving customers wasn't difficult at all, but if your not watching the merchandise, it is easily stolen.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 24 November 2016
I learned a lot by working at Fossil Inc. Watch Station. I was able to change links on watches, which I had never learned before, and the managers had taken enough time to teach new associates how to properly do the procedure. I also learned key demands on how to properly sell watches, that we must use to successfully close sales.
closing shifts were long and long periods of standing
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Cookstown, ON – 7 November 2016
Fossil is a good company to work for they provide you with lots of support on how to sell their products. I liked the atmosphere everyday it was always positive and a happy place to go. At times it was stressful when trying to keep up to your numbers at times because the expected was not always reasonable.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON – 20 September 2016
As a part-time Sales Associate at Fossil Group Inc., my typical day is that providing customer need-base advice timely, acheving my daily sales goals, arranging dispaly cabinet and so on. It is really nice to work with my co-workers and management group in Fossil store at Niagara-on-the-lake outlet collection mall because they always give me support especially my manager who always encourage and support my work. I learned lots from this dynamic team and this job also strengthen my sales skill, customers skills and teamwork. Even though the time for closing at the end of day is a little bit long, the whole team still try their best to make everything perfect like clearing and organize the display cabinets well prepared for the next day opening.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 8 September 2016
Management at the time was not up to standard. We were placed under the illusion of being on commission, with targets but were not given any incentive to meet these besides management giving us long negative conversations.
Upbeat, positive atmosphere, with lots of potential
Seasonal Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Cookstown, ON – 28 June 2016
I learned a lot about being a Sales Associate and how to interact with our friends that came into the store to purchase Fossil Products. I learned I can do and achieve anything that I put my mind to. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fun atmosphere in the store and the positive attitudes and working with the public. The hardest part of the job would have been that it was just a seasonal position. The most enjoyable part of the job was walking into the store for your shift and every one being so happy to see you, they were also equally proud of your accomplishments as well.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 31 May 2016
I worked at Fossil for the Christmas holiday season and really enjoyed it, my co-workers were fun and easy to get along with, the different managers had different personalities so it was interesting to get to know each of them, and the store catered to all focus groups product wise. The hardest part of my job was the lack of hours (I really wanted to work full time), the most enjoyable was finding new styles and fashions that I could use for myself.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 16 May 2016
Fossil provided a fun and challenging work environment that allowed me to use my previous sales experience in a new way. I learned much about watch movements and materials, warranty guid-lines, and how to make connections with guest based on interest and experiences rather than just the product. The team was incredibly helpful with everyday challenges and provided assistants whenever needed. The most enjoyable part of my job was connecting with guest and getting to know them and not just viewing them as a sale.
