Everyday had something interesting to do
Stock Associate (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABApril 2, 2014
Pros: listen to music and work, nice people to work with, team work
Cons: when you finished something too fast you're left with nothing to do
I loved working here. Everyday there was something that I did and I loved doing it. I worked at The North Face as a Stock Associate for 8 months and I kind of hate myself for leaving.

I was able to listen music while working, which made me work more efficiently. I did things I liked such as sorting, inventory, etc.

Management and coworkers were also – more... fun to talk to! They were a diverse bunch who always had a story to tell.

Probably the coolest place I have ever worked to date! – less

Sales Assistant (Current Employee), Leicester, ENGOctober 28, 2014
Pros: centre discounts
Cons: unsociable hours
Days are either extremely busy or very slow, extremely unsociable working hours. This job has improved by communication skills and allowed me to learn another aspect of business. Over the time I have been there I have been given some management opportunities this included completing the weekly rota and the daily planner.

Fast paced and exciting work environment
Stock Supervisor (Current Employee), King of Prussia, PAAugust 20, 2014
Pros: employee discounts, casual work attire, healthy lifestyle incentives
Cons: varying hours
Strong organizational skills are essential in the role of Stock Supervisor. Inventory results, audits, and loss prevention standards are all heavily impacted by the strength of the stockroom. As much time is also spent managing the sales floor, it is important to identify high priority tasks and maintain the flexibility to spend time as needed. I am – more... fortunate to work with an excellent staff and fellow management team. Our sales numbers, audit scores, and shrink percentage are among the top in the company and result largely in part from excellent communication, effective training methods, and an overall positive work environment. – less

Good culture
Planner (Former Employee), San Francisco Bay Area, CAAugust 3, 2014
Pros: attending to the sales meeting was a great expereince
Cons: racial discrimination; predominantly white (very few minority)
Like any job, A lot of anyone successes depends on who your boss is, the type of management style and if the person gets the appropriate training. The management can make or break the position. In my case; it started hands-off and there was not any type of training. I believe that I was set to fail because during the first 6 months my cubicle was very – more... far from the team. It was almost in another building/area so it was difficult to get any type of training and it was almost impossible. I never got any flow of communication due that the proximity of my desk in comparison to my own team. Therefore, the next months were critical for me because when I was placed closed to my team; I was almost as if I was a new person. My experience was not a fair situation, but I always tried my best to learn and get the most of my experience. Overall, I enjoyed the culture at TNF but not my particular experience.

I also believe TNF has a huge racial discrimination issue. The company is predominantly white, some Asians but very small number of Latinos. After I left TNF, I heard that four people from Latin America were having issues with their white bosses and one Indian person. Of all of them were all pushed out as if it was voluntary termination, but it was not. I have all of their testimonies. – less

Fast Pace Retail Awesome Atmosphere
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), White Plains, NYJuly 31, 2014
Pros: learned about the outdoor community and living .
Cons: retail hours lack of life balance
My typical day involved supporting the General Manager with back office duties. I would oversee inventory logs, maintain employee records, deliver and assure high quality customer services on the sales floor and online/phone orders. I enjoyed the challenge of merchandising products throughout seasonal changes to fit and tailor our store location and – more... client needs. – less

Fast paced and exciting place to work
Sales (Former Employee), Monroe, OHJune 11, 2014
At The North Face a typical day is very enthusiastic and fun. I learned many of the tricks to making sales. Selling is now a second nature to me! Management is outstanding and strive to make you an outstanding sales person. Your co-workers will make you better. Where they will become your friends, you will compete in many different aspects on a daily – more... basis. The hardest part of the job is keeping up to date on all of the merchandise. In order to be the best at selling a product, you need to know everything about the product. At The North Face they make sure that you have all of the knowledge in order to do this. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping a customer and having them leaving the store satisfied and excited to return. – less

Sales Associate (Current Employee), GeorgiaJune 10, 2014
This job is better than a typical retail job, if you love the outdoors because you can apply that knowledge. Customers were typically polite; a lot of them speak English as a second language so patience is key. Management and coworkers alike are great people and we refer to the team as our family.

Fun place to work during the busy time
Material Handler (Former Employee), Overland Park, KSApril 30, 2014
Pros: lunches with each other
Cons: slow during the winter
During each day we called the city to have them park the lawns for where we planted trees. We set up appointments for our landscapers to give a bid for new lawns. The co-workers were great because each learned the other job. The hardest part of the job was working during the winter and still keeping busy.
