A Senior Planner position at Fossil requires a lot of flexibility and even though you are performing regular tasks on a daily basis (analyzing sales trends, inventory levels, reporting activities..), 50% of the job is made of ad-hoc activities where you have to show that you are proactive: identiy and solving quality or stock issues etc..
Being Senior Planner at Fossil is being a Planning and a Merchandise Manager at the same time, and requires financial competences, and interest / passion for the brands.
The management leaves a great independence to Sr Planners, and this is truly enjoyable. The working environment and atmosphere is very pleasant.
Coworkers are all very passionated about the brands licensed by Fossil, and the Fossil brand itself.
If the hardest part of the job is certainly the stress you have to manage, it is largely compensated by working for a performing brand.
