Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Leeds, AL – June 12, 2014
Pros: great work/life balance
Cons: way behind on technology
Great work/life balance. Genuine core values. If you have a good team then the job is wonderful and everything runs smooth. However the SM sets the tone. Some SMs are leaders while others are "Managers". ASMs are the backbone. They do the most work without recognition. Aside from that, a pretty good company to work for.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), St. Louis, MO – June 4, 2014
While my various managers ran the gamut from friendly and helpful to indifferent, it was my time with my coworkers I appreciated the most at Fossil. The most difficult job was clinching a sale from a customer, and my more successful coworkers frequently offered good advice to use next time. I learned how to think on my feet and interact with customers – more... in a casual, but still business-oriented manner. – less
Stock Associate (Current Employee), Orlando, FL – May 28, 2014
Pros: great discount, good vibes in the store
Cons: no hours, bad management
This is a very easy job that you can gain a wealth of knowledge from. I worked stock at Fossil and it was very interesting because i was able to see the newest product first hand. I also was able to work with my managers one on one to pick their brain and learn different parts of the business such as product knowledge and business knowledge. There is – more... room to grow within the company as long as you take your job seriously. The company is awesome however, the management is not so great. Although there is some room for improvement in the management aspect of the business, this is a great place to work. – less

Stockroom Associate (Current Employee), City of Sunrise, FL – May 22, 2014
Pros: fun environment with hungry hungry employee who sometimes like to do foodruns
Cons: shortbreaks, average hours: 10-20 hr a week
At work, I receive the shipment and transport it to the truck. After I process and organized the shipment in the backroom, I move on to the sales floor where I replenish the merchandise and work on the cashiers. The management their is pretty good. They make sure we are on point. The hardest part of my job use to be working under a small time frame, – more... but with time I have adjusted. I can really appreciate how creative and inspiring the managers and co-workers are at Fossil. Honestly its not hard working at Fossil, unless you come their with a bad attitude. Working their teaches you how to come to work ready. – less
Sales Representative (Former Employee), El Paso, TX – May 5, 2014
A typical work day was fast-paced and engaging because of the constant interaction with customers and co-workers. I learned how to use a cash registered as I had never used one and I think that will be beneficial in the future. My co-workers are friendly and hard- working and always did their best to comply with job duties.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Huntsville, AL – April 18, 2014
A typical day at Fossil would be overseeing employee selling and training. I would also do opening and closing procedures. I learned management skills and how to do daily operations. My co-workers were very enjoyable to work with and train. The hardest part of the job was training on watches. The most enjoyable part of the job was selling to my customers.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Nashville, TN – April 7, 2014
Pros: friendly environment
Very nice people and friendly environment. A typical day at Fossil is going in and selling products. I learned how to deal with different types of customers. The managers were super friendly but made sure everyone was doing their jobs. The co-workers were really welcoming and helped if needed. The hardest part was learning about the products. The most – more... enjoyable part was coming in to work. – less
