Fachverantwortlicher am Hauptsitz (Ehemaliger Mitarbeiter) – Biel/Bienne, BE – 3. Juni 2019
Interessantes Unternehmen und abwechslungsreiche und herausfordernde Tätigkeiten. Hauptsitz etwas antiquiert in einigen Bereichen. Hierarchische Denkweise und Zielerreichungsgrad blockiert Individualität.
Sales advisor, brand ambassador (Ehemaliger Mitarbeiter) – London – 13. Juni 2019
Overall the Swatchgroup provides a decent work environment for its employees. Retail staff, even though possessing precious experience and rare skill sets are very much seen as replaceable, this 2 year experience has given me very little prospect of growth as an individual.
Tecnico (Ehemaliger Mitarbeiter) – Mendrisio – 11. Juni 2019
Ho lavorato quasi un anno in Diantus ( Mendrisio). Ambiente pieno di regole inutili e opprimenti. Ti controllano in continuazione e non c'è serenità nell'ambiente lavorativo. Lavorano tutti con grande costrizione e competizione. Contento di aver dato le dimissioni, non si poteva più vivere così.
Stress, pressioni, voci che girano in continuazione
Sales Assistant (Ehemaliger Mitarbeiter) – Mendrisio, TI – 29. Mai 2019
ambiente molto dinamico,colleghi meravigliosi ma Manager incompetente e molto despota : non forma adeguatamente i dipendenti lasciando che siano loro a reperire ed imparare le informazioni e quindi a sviluppare da soli il loro percorso di crescita, delega ogni cosa agli altri perfino i compiti personaliper non fare assolutamente nulla. Con manie di controllo e paranoia crea situazioni di disagio tra colleghi. Telefonate ad ogni ora del giorno e della sera privandoti della tua vita personale. Questa persona purtroppo distrugge la gioia di vivere, uno dei capi saldi del brand. Sconsiglio questo posto. Non sano, i diritti umani vengono calpestati.
A typical day consisted of us creating daily goals, and waited for a customer to come in. The typical customer at Swatch are the ones who owned them as kids. We learned how to effectively sell to a customer. There was a lot of trainings, which some would dislike but I personally loved it.
Stressful industry but very Fun and positive culture
GENERAL STORE MANAGER (Derzeitiger Mitarbeiter) – Paramus, NJ – 13. Mai 2019
Swatch is great to work for because of all the great benefits they offer. They have a very "family" like culture. They have plenty of room for growth and give the opportunity to those willing to work for it. I learned a lot in management skills and to provide outstanding customer service. I mainly enjoy working with my team and making it a fun environment for them on a daily basis. The hard part with Swatch is their not realistic about their industry and DM usually puts unrealistic expectations on SM. Even when certain expectations are highly met, they find a way to still not be happy about it and don't give store managers work/life balance.
Post Room Administrator (Ehemaliger Mitarbeiter) – Southampton, Hampshire – 8. Mai 2019
Worked in the post room some years back and would like to stress that the manager of the whole building didn't have any people management skills that breathed confidence into any of the teams apart from putting more work, tons of pressure/stress and burning the people out! No extra pay, very tight on the once a year bonus (if you even notice it for your hard work!) If you wanted to buy a watch and get 20% off... then tough as London head office staff would likely of bought it!
My unhappy experience working in the post room was that i discovered that other departments were entitled to tea breaks yet, the post staff would get the one 30 minutes in 8 hours! On Tuesdays you could be likely unpacking up to 700 watches from two bags by yourself... then be late for data entry. Sometimes it didn't feel like being in a team. Yet, it wasn't just opening post, it was inputting all the customer details, choosing broker accounts onto their SAP system (as fast as you can) before doing despatch jobs for other departments plus, photographing as many brands of watches front/back as possible then at the end of the day crating all the despatch all up for the couriers. The jobs/demands of production increased and the pay stayed the same flat rate (not much above minimum wage), even when helping other departments doing invoicing... no appreciation, no thanks afterwards.
My own manager didn't have correct people management skills neither, could shout at people/humiliate them in-front of their peers and it just caused a massive atmosphere problem not only within teams but within the wholemehr... building! Was glad to get out of there as it was a place of dread rather than feeling alright to be there.
So unless, Swatch Group has improved dramatically (of which i doubt very much), then stay away from this company unless you work in London or are desperate to receive the strife to pay the mortgage or rent.
This might be a big global organization but when you work there, you realise that the big manager cares only to bleed you for it's worth from working there.Weniger

Encargado de tienda (Ehemaliger Mitarbeiter) – Caracas – 23. März 2019
Fue un tiempo de mi vida que disfruté mucho, aprendí demasiado y me hice un verdadero profesional de atención al cliente, muchos son mis amigos, se casaban conmigo a la sucursal que me enviaran y la verdad viví 10 años de entrega, lástima que en Caracas esté muy mal valorado como profesional
Learning at first was challenging and time-consuming. Very overwhelming at first but with the training, dedication, and love for the product it became easy. Great benefits. Very sales were driven and challenged you to always do more and get better. Lots of numbers to memorize and tons of product and expected training to go through. Borderline harassment to keep giving more and more. Rather put the blame on the workers than find a logical business solution to slow sales of the product consumers are not interested.
Contests to win. Great benefits for full time. Flexible work schedule.
Unrealistic goals. Excessive need for more energy.
