THIRD KEY MANAGER (Former Employee), Gulfport, MSOctober 3, 2013
Pros: 401k
Cons: not enough workers on a busy day.
Opened and closed the store, went through morning and evening emails from district manager. Went through to find out what was the daily markdowns or promotions. All of us managers got along very well, we all had productive work days together.
The co-workers were easy to train and get along with.
Hardest part of the job, when we did not have enough hours – more... to schedule more workers in the work day, especially when we had busy days. Or when we had a complete floor set change, and myself or one other person was working.
Most enjoyable, we would have potlucks, celebrate birthdays, friendly management and co-workers. Means a lot! – less

Wonderful place to work with excellent discount
Third Key Manager (Current Employee), Bossier City, LASeptember 25, 2013
A typical day would consist of opening the store, making daily planner to conduct sales for the day, process shipment, check email, drop deposit, and drive sales.
I have learned to be very independent and organized working here.
The management team is very easy going and pleasant to work with; along with the staffed team members.
The hardest part of – more... the job is driving sales during the day because most people are working and no one is out shopping.
What I enjoy most about the job is having fun and competing with the team associates about sales and individual goals. – less

Ok for extra income
Sales Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYSeptember 20, 2013
Pros: clean and organized
Cons: not good for longterm sales persons
It is an okay place to make extra money. The aggressive pressure to sell multiple items can intimidate an employee and drive away customers. The hours are low and the compensation is way too low when you consider the fact that they require you to be on-call.

okay place to work with great discount
Sales Associate (Seasonal) (Former Employee), Dallas, TXAugust 31, 2013
Pros: good discount on fossil and michael kors
Cons: rudeness
show up and try to get people to buy as much as possible. They say that they don't want to push stuff on people, but make you do it anyway. They teach you hoe to be sneaky and sly. I learned to to treat customers better. Co-workers were really awesome, however management was not my favorite.

Operations Coordinator & Sales/Trade Show Manager (Former Employee), Richardson, TXAugust 27, 2013
I am looking forward to a new start. My husband is in the military and we had to move. I have learned a lot and was able to advance in all areas in my career at Fossil.
In the 15 yrs at Fossil I have been able to advance in several areas. Starting out as a customer care rep moving to a lead over an inside sales team and being chosen to travel and train – more... the company worldwide on SAP has been a great experience. I have always been the go to person. I love to teach and coach to have the ability to advance over the years has been a blessing to move throughout the company and learn all aspects. – less

I loved working here!
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 26, 2013
Pros: 50% discount, free watch, good music in stores.
Cons: change in management, expensive clothes, no apparel stores close to me.
Fossil was once a great, laid back place to work, I advanced quickly to a Store Manager but once the company broke up the sales regions and hired our new Regional Manager, I was demoted to make room for different managers. Now when I go into a Fossil store, the merchandise is a lot more expensive and it's not a down to earth feel anymore. Too bad management – more... took a different course, I could have seen myself staying there forever! – less

Productive and fun work place
Seasonal Employee (Former Employee), Ontario, CAAugust 11, 2013
A typical day at work was speaking to customer and telling them about the sales. I learned to engage in a conversation with the customers to find out what they maybe looking for in style, size, color, and brand they may like. The management was good but I felt miss guided at times. My co-workers were friendly and fun people. The hardest part of the – more... job was dealing with default customers who felt frustrated from seasonal shopping. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting different people and making new friends. – less

Fun, encouraging work environment.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Costa Mesa, CAAugust 2, 2013
Pros: half-off of everything.
Cons: no constant hours.
The manager will chat me in when I go on the clock. That person basically tells me how the store is doing for the day and what my sales goals are for that day. The manager will also tell me what to focus on. It is so helpful. The co-workers quickly become genuine friends. Everyone is so nice and has a sense of humor, as that is a core value of the company. – more... It is a retail position, so the hardest part of the day is dealing with rude customers. The most enjoyable part of the day is actually helping customers. – less

Financial Reporting Senior Accountant (Former Employee), Richardson, tXAugust 1, 2013
Pros: work life balance
Cons: sporadic busy times.
A typical day at work was closing the monthly financial packages for my specific subsidiary.

I learn the financial Reporting process, how to use SAP, COGNOS, and Hyperion financial Systems.

Hardest part of the job was adjusting to the work compared to other jobs.

Watch Specialist (Former Employee), San Francisco, CAJuly 28, 2013
Pros: good people, great discount.
Cons: on my feet a lot.
Work was always casual, no pressure, though always with an awareness of both store and personal goals for the day. Management was tough but fair all of the time. The best part was coming to work and selling a product I loved to other people and making their day fun. I would get to come work with people I liked, yet kept things very professional as well. – more... I learned a lot about inventory management, sales tracking procedures, people development, and sales trends. – less
