    I worked at The Buckle full-time (more than an year)


    Fair wages with excellent opportunities for commission. Growing company with a lot of positions and opportunities for advancement. Hires great employees that makes it a fun atmosphere to work in. Good discount. Jeans for everyone and every size. It is rewarding to find someones new favorite pair of jeans.


    Have high standards for how much you should sell per hour and average transaction that can be difficult some days. Have to be willing to work in a fast paced atmosphere.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at The Buckle.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with a Buckle Representative at a college career fair. She was very friendly and when I asked about Follow-Up she told me I could sign up for an interview time. I went to the interview a week later. The dress was "your style", not the usual business formal you would think of for an interview. It was in the back storage room of one of their stores with two managers from different Buckle locations. They were really friendly and casual. We had about a twenty minute conversation and they said they would get back to me in 48 hours. They didn't get back to me until a day or two past that mark. I am interested in management and not really sales or retail. Although we had a nice conversation, it was pretty apparent during the interview that it probably wasn't a good fit for either of us.
