When do bonuses come out this year?
I’ve worked at an outlet since 2014. Before they started making smart watches, an upset Fossil employee was hard to find. Fossil lost so much money because the smart watches genuinely SUCK (just so so SO many warranty returns, it’s crazy). After the... — read more
The novelty in the fall retail bag line looks so dated! I remember seeing that chevron-like patchwork in bags years ago. The Fossil signature print is sad and boring. The floral print in the Dillon Weekender bag is hideous! I don’t see a guy or girl... — read more
What are your thoughts about potential Fossil layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
I was better the moment I gave notice. I had no doubt in my decision to resign. The only thing I regret is that I didn't leave earlier. Not only do I get paid more, but there is a lot less stress, and best of all, I finally have a manager who is... — read more
If the situation with vaccination escalates, that is, if in the end we all have to get vaccinated in order to keep our jobs, where will those who still do not want to be vaccinated go? I don't like anti-vaxx or pro-vaxx discussions, nor would I... — read more
If you haven’t taken the the vax what does your future at Fossil look like? Will we get fired over this? What about our civil liberties?
https://sjobs.brassring.com/TGnewUI/Search/home/HomeWithPreLoad?partnerid=25613&siteid=5179&PageType=JobDetails&jobid=1702916 Fossil is looking for Head of Marketplace to transform watch station. Did you hear of this strategy? What do you think? Do... — read more
Nobody on the top seems to care, though. They keep leading this company the same way: no direction, no vision, no long-term strategy. The entire industry is going through a major crisis but you wouldn't know it if you worked here. Titanic had better... — read more
Fossil’s poor customer service gets called out by Harry Styles mother, Mama Twist @MrsAnneTwist on Twitter 3days ago (who has 2.5M followers) - “Disappointing service from @fossil … how does one get a response?!!” …….And her fans come for @fossil on... — read more
Some say he was fired some say he quit - does this mean more layoffs are coming for some of us?
Has anybody else heard about those rumors? Or is it just FUD?
What do u guys think? what a great turaround that was...same demographic, same price points...come on!!Let s turn the tide
I find it hard to motivate myself to perform my best every day. But how can one solve this issue? Is it the industry or market that we are in or the poor management? I struggle to find the answer to this question. I keep wondering that as well... — read more
Do you think Space Jam limited edition launch was good or not good for the Fossil brand? It brought a lot of attention, but are partnerships like these good brand building or selling out?
Interesting the new appointment of Holly Briedis as new Chief Digital Officers...she actually has a rather impressive experience and background coming from McKinsey where she led the Digital/Omnichannel practice, which makes me hopeful...(she could... — read more
In my opinion, here remained only the worst employees and those naive enough to believe that things would get better. The best people have left and are still leaving. That says enough about the future of this company. That is quite a sufficient... — read more
And that's okay. I'm happy to see that people who have other options are seeing through Fossil and are looking elsewhere. Just because that means we remain in a cr---y situation and chronically understaffed doesn't mean that I wish such fate on... — read more
Sometimes I feel we are more worried about costs than sales. If we put in as much energy into growing sales and adapting or leading the industry I think we might have a chance. Just venting. SMH.
The stress has become too much for me. I am well aware of the fact that grass isn't always greener, but I'll be willing to take that chance as soon as an opportunity presents itself. This company is sinking fast and I don't want to be around for the... — read more
I no longer have any high hopes from Fossil in the sense that some of the radical changes this company needs will happen here. However, maybe some small changes would be enough?
I absolutely agree with everyone who thinks that the future of Fossil is to become a small company because the company will have to cut additional costs to adjust to poor sales. I see no room for optimism. I'm just wondering how much Fossil will... — read more
Owners of older Fossil watches won't be happy! https://www.droid-life.com/2021/06/05/fossil-wont-upgrade-older-watches-to-new-wear-platform/
I hate saying this, it sounds too pessimistic, but if this company doesn't make some big changes in the way it does business, I think that every next year will be more and more difficult, until a complete catastrophe. I wish it wasn’t too late... — read more
https://youtu.be/BlGalsye6pY Just gonna drop this here….. don’t know whether to laugh at all the truth shown, or cry that the outlook REALLY IS as bleak as employees knew for years. Good luck Fossil PR to put some positive spin on this! — read more
Although positive comments don't seem to be too popular on this forum, i think it is worth noting that Capri Holdings management was very positive on their earnings call today about the performance of their watch business. They noted that retail... — read more
Will the new cooperation between Samsung and Google for a Samsung smartwatch with Wear OS be the end for Fossils (Wear OS) smartwatch? As this is the last hope for a product that sells will it be the finish for the whole company too? Another example... — read more
It would be expected that the company is cutting people with a higher goal - to be able to dedicate itself to a better vision of business in the future. However, for years, after each layoff, the situation at Fossil has been getting worse. Layoffs... — read more
What strategy could save Fossil from further sinking, that is, what would save our jobs? I see here a comparison with Crocks that someone mentioned, as well as the mentions of business strategies of Citizen, Seiko.... I think the biggest problem is... — read more
i would be curious for someone here to answer this simple question... how in a severely declining market can a company that sells largely undifferentiated value products (and always has), mostly through retail locations, survive except by cutting... — read more
Someone in this forum was trying to make excuses for Fossil bad management by saying that all its peers are having the same issues...well that is simply not true. Movado is actually doing well, they are profitable, have raised guidance and their... — read more
Do Anyone know what is happening?
it is amazing how bad Fossil is being managed when there is such strong demand for accessible, 90s brands - i am not talking about layoffs or politics here...i am talking about BRANDING, STYLES AND PRODUCTS. There is no a single sku that is a true... — read more
I haven’t heard many rumors about layoffs lately. When it’s quiet, I panic more because I think a storm is brewing. Perhaps I'm overreacting because on this forum layoffs haven't been mentioned much lately. Does anyone have any insight about possible... — read more
I really hope management does not on the way and is too greedy about this proposal. A combination with Citizen would be a game changer...they have done a fantastic job in growing and keeping Bulova and Citizen relevant in the US. Adding Fossil... — read more
It’s great to see so many promotions going around at the expense of so many job cuts and reduced salaries!
