"I've worked at Van's for 3 years, and I moved up from seasonal to management. It was an honor for me to do this, and it was a challenge as well. We have a lot of people move through our business, and I treat each one as special and valued. It's important to do this and to keep improving."

"I've worked for Vans since 2012 with a break for the military. The heartshare of the company, something they take pride in, has been the focus of the company however, with numbers being down, they are focusing more on the numbers than the people that work for them. If they want better results, the people should be the focus."

"The women's apparel department is toxic. Full of girls who think they are still in high school, with gossip and interoffice politics. I would not recommend working here."

"Vans is a growing company with great values. It's a simple company that believes in the customer. With the current growth it is hard for Vans to keep up with the times. The training is very basic, POS system needs to be updated so bad, there is no plans for personal growth, and GM's have a hard time being business owners. The great thing is that VANS is learning all of these things and updating. The love that the Van Doreen family has for the company is huge. Makes you want to be a part of the future."
