Fun, energetic vibe and great place to work.

Vans is a great job in terms of gaining experience, i went from being casual to full time to assistant manager all within a year. We'd start the day by playing great tunes and creating a friendly customer vibe, followed by completing a varied amount of tasks. The hardest part of the job was dealing with quiet periods. The most enjoyable part was working with the team, each person bought a unique characteristic to the store.

Pros

Work parties

Cons

Long Hours, no overtime benefits.

Not worth working over the christmas period

Working at vans was initially fun and exciting, with great opportunities to learn the retail structure. However, management was harsh with no communication and often problems arose that were not dealt with at all. My pay was taxed half and the problem was not fixed till after my last pay check, even though I messaged trying to sort it out months before. The team however was very friendly and welcoming, and the atmosphere was great.

Pros

Friendly team

Cons

Low pay and poor communication

Vibrant and fun working atmosphere

A typical day of work consist of general housekeeping and cleaning of the store, receiving stock and pricing stock. Helping customers as the number one priority to achieve sales and KPIs. Being aware of store and personal budgets. My co-workers where supportive and where great team players . The hardest part of the job would be to try and reach personal budgets on the quieter days and the enjoyable part of the job was to assist customers and delivering exceptional customer service.

Pros

Discounts

Cons

Long hours
