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

Fast paced and well ran.
Warehouse Manager (Former Employee), Lenexa, KSJanuary 14, 2014
Pros: fast paced company.
Cons: they moved to california in 2006.
Great place to work for. Extreme outdoor gear was our main distribution. The management team was great. I started out as a Supervisor and became the warehouse manager after just one year. Everyone worked very hard and the hardest part was meeting all the deadlines. The people were the best part of my job.

This job required little to no experience in the retail feild. There was barely any structure within the company but they treated you well. A typical day would consist of meeting customers needs on the sales floor as well as at the registers.

Best company I've ever worked for
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHAugust 15, 2013
Pros: employee discount, part timer benefits
Cons: short breaks, standing on your feet for long periods of time.
I worked at the outlet in Cincinnati for eight months. It was a great place to work. My coworkers were a great bunch and the managers were down to earth and easy to talk to. I learned a lot about all the different products that TNF sells. I was able to relate my past skiing experience into selling winter sports gear. The employee discount is insane. – more... I spent more than half of my paycheck on TNF merchandise because the deals were so good. Part timers accrue paid time off based on the number of hours worked. When I quit I had the equivalent of a week and a half worth of pay deposited into my checking account. I don't know of any other company that does that for part timers. The gift cards were also nice for hitting sales goals. I will always recommend their product to people. I hope to maybe one day work for them again except in the corporate offices in the graphic design studio. – less

Great place to work
Sales associate (explorer) (Current Employee), Raleigh, North CarolinaJune 30, 2013
Pros: pay, management, products
Typical day of work is customer service and educating them on different technologies on certain products. Most people just want to know what will keep them dry and warm, in addition to what is stylish and doesnt make them look fat. Most people come in knowing what they want, but you'll get a few people who are totally clueless. Management (at my store) – more... is great they are very flexible and always try to work for your best interest. Really no hard parts to the job besides difficult customers, but that's the nature of retail – less

Fun low stress environment
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Freeport, MEJune 21, 2013
The hardest part of your job will but just standing on your feet all day. Otherwise this is an easy job but yet enjoyable. The people are great to work with. Management is very passive aggressive which cause a little stress from time to time.
