Great small space with interesting personalities
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Albany, NYMarch 4, 2014
Pros: easy to be productive, fun, attractive coworkers, great discounts
Cons: on your feet all day, short breaks, small space
Fossil was fun while it lasted. I was a seasonal hire and enjoyed it because it was fairly easy to be productive. In retail the most important factors are customer service and a well tidied store. And we prided ourselves on both of those factors to be carried out to the fullest daily, and were often rewarded for it. It was also very nice to see such – more... attractive and fun personalities every day I came into work. Granted there were a few that didn't make the cut in either department and sometimes both but that was a small percentage of my coworkers. Lastly, the most important aspect I appreciated about Fossil was the amazing discounts in store and online (through the phone.) My only major vice was the skimpy paychecks, getting paid about a dollar and a 1/3 over minimum wage was not the best. I would recommend anyone who's young and looking for employment in retail to work here. – less

Sales (Former Employee), Randburg, GPMarch 4, 2014
Pros: none.
Cons: long hours
It was a very competitive environment, getting along with co workers was easy, the hardest part of the job was probably the difficult customers and most enjoyable was leaving our customers happy.

Good first retail job
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Osage Beach, MOMarch 3, 2014
Pros: store discount
Cons: working odd hours, not consistent with working hours
I've worked for this company and have recently left for a job with better pay and more room to grow, I do think this is a good first job for someone who has never worked in retail. The managers were great and they all work well together.

Fantastic.
Sales Assistant/ Concession Supervisor (Former Employee), BluewaterFebruary 19, 2014
I worked on a concession within House of Fraser. I was involved helping change the FOSSIL concessions over to WatchStationInternational.
I have never enjoyed a job in retail as much as this one. I believe it was partly due to this particular store and the people I worked with that made it brilliant. I have done a day or two at other stores and they – more... did seem quite and a bit slow (probably because of location). While it did have it's ups and downs like all jobs I still cannot fault this place more than that.
Management were so understanding that work should be fun and that people had a life outside the job, they were very accommodating.
If you are looking for a really fun and enjoyable job in retail then I really recommend fossil/WatchStation. – less

productive and fun place
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Pottstown, PAFebruary 17, 2014
Typically customers come into Fossil wanting to know sales and information on the various luxury watches and leather bags sold at Fossil. Sales associates have been trained in sizing watches and changing the batteries within watches. In addition, sales associates are trained in the overall knowledge of leather goods sold in Fossil. My co-workers are – more... very friendly and everyone works as a team to meet sales goals. The hardest part of the job would probably meeting sales goals after holidays because most customers have already done most of their shopping for the season and will not shop until the next season or holiday. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the customers needs – less

Fossil's made the work environment feel as if you were all part of a big Fossil family. Staff is very nice, putting customers first. Very fun work experience and a lot of productive responsibilities. At Fossil, there is a ton of product knowledge. I was trying to out do my co-workers and memorize all the products. Best first job by far!

I have worked with Fossil for almost four years. I started out as a Third key, and was promoted to an Assistant store manager. A typical day would be opening and closing registers, understanding what needs to be done during that day. We have hourly sales and key performance goals along with daily, monthly and quarterly goals. I help manage a team of – more... 15-25 associates at all times, sometimes more during busy months. – less
