I worked at Fossil for 2 years and I really enjoyed all the employees that I worked with including my boss. I have SAP experience and that is why they hired me because I had extensive knowledge of SAP. I left because they hired a manager that wanted to micromanage everyone and I did not want to be micromanaged it ruins the morale and environment that we used to have.

Pros and Cons
You could be yourself and wear casual clothes and the employees were awesome.

I was a temp. I would say more than half of the employees were temps. We had special color badges Fossil had a cafeteria which was great. You can see which employees were temps by the color of their badge. We were able to but items from Fossil at a certain time in a special room with a discount prove.

Pros and Cons
My experience with my manager ended very unfriendly. I was embarrassed of what I saw him doing.
fossil was very close to where I lived. Parking was great.

Liam Brown3 years ago
"We have this saying around the company: All For One. It’s a testament to how much better we are when we work together. We believe that creativity and hard work are not products of stuffy corporate environments. We don’t really have a name for our dress code, but the word “casual” is definitely in there somewhere. Feeling comfortable and inspired at work is an absolute must, so we do our best to instill a home-away-from-home atmosphere.".
