Anyone know of the Fossil Group severance package policy? I've asked around and with HR and no one has straightforward answers. Store is closing in a few weeks. Thanks
With all the wild daily fluctuations of our stock price, it's clear that the day traders have gotten a hold of it. Never a good thing.
The company is in all kinds of trouble and we keep getting pushed to do more with less. Now you hit us up again with the total time waste of doing an IDP??? Really? Let me keep doing my job to keep the company afloat now is not the time for the HR... read more

Stocks dip below 14$ Fossil mismanagement to blame? What's next?
/ None of the workers on h1b visas are key skill sets that can't be hired as US citizens. Fossil coached by ISG on how to get around the illegalities.
Many of the Infosys folks assigned to work at Fossil were already in the US on work visas for other assignments including some for petroleum engineering that had nothing to do with Fossil and Information Technology. There were only assigned to keep... read more

More Layoffs to Come?
It looks like wearables aren't turning it around for us. Anyone think it will take time or is the writting on the wall for Fossil?
The message to all the people were laid off was that people can not get their severance package/money until they train their Indian counterpart in IT. How is that legal? Make's me sick to my stomach. There is no vision or success in that for US... read more
