The work environment at the Buckle is a career-oriented place. We focus on the customers, and providing great customer service. The goal apart from focusing on the customers is also making sure we meet sales goal everyday, and in order to do that, we always collaborate as a team by impacting each other's sales, whether it be presenting more product, mentioning the Buckle credit card, or offering services such as layaway, we get the job done. This store has helped me become a better communicator, a sales representative, and an active impactor for people in the job AND the clientele. I really do approve and recommend this job to any one, especially students who are trying to get out there to be a more effective communicator and stepping out the their comfort zone when it comes to starting small talk to people!

A lot of fun, but challenging! You must know how to make connections with people. One must know the product very well and be able to explain everything about the product to the guest. Standing on your feet for almost nine hours is painful, but rewarding in the long run. There is a lot to learn at this company and many growth opportunities. The company cares about the employees.
During my two years at Buckle, I had a mutually good/bad experience. To speak of the good, I enjoyed many of my coworkers and had a great time with them around. Those that I enjoyed were supportive, encouraging, and helped bring good to my bad days. The clothing were of my style so I genuinely loved being around them and getting the chance to style them for guests. On the bad side of this company, they were very disorganized and disrespectful of sales associates. My particular store manager was only in the job for the money and lacked personal interest and people skills in the workplace. He often did not sell based on the guest's preferences and would overstep boundaries to hound them into buying items they did not necessarily want. If we were not doing the same thing as a sales associate, the manager would pull us aside and use strong language to tell us to also do this.
