What Do You Like About Working There?

I enjoyed being able to help each guest and make sure they were taken care of the way THEY wanted to be treated. Buckle has a stigma to be known as having pushy sales people people. Show More

What DON'T You Like About Working There?

I didn’t like how political the company is. It’s all about who you know. If you aren’t a favorite in your district, don’t expect feedback or tools from your management to help you. You won’t last long. Show More

What Are Your Favorite Benefits/Perks?

My favorite perk was the 40% discount. Show More
