    Pros

    30% employee discount... need I say more? I basically had this job for the discount alone. Very casual and laid back except for Christmas and tax free weekend, other than that the job was a piece of cake.

    Cons

    Really pushed us to sell subpar accessories. Its difficult to sell a cheap product that is basically useless. Wish they would reconsider the overall value of their name brand accesories.

    Pros

    Pros- good work environment, opportunity to move up to assistant manager and manager. Overall its a good company if you are interested in retail, sales and commission is good.

    Cons

    Commission is not for everyone. And some employees are not too competent. A lot of kids are hired out of high school who dont have great work ethic.

    Get to meet many different people.
    learn about shoes.
    30% discount.

    Cons

    Terrible pay.

    None. My Management was great.

    Pros

    The discount was great, the sales associates worked together and got along great. The environment was very fun. I like the non-commision style pay.

    Cons

    Management needs some cleaning up, some not all. Pay can be a little better.

    Advice to Management

    Check in with your sales associates because we are usually the first point of contact in the store. Our smiles, our faces. Management needs to understand that. And leave there personal problems at the door.

    Pros

    You have to have passion for the product and to servicing guest. Training is great if you can apply it and sometimes you will be on your own to learn and develop but if you can work on a team and lead you can have a fun career.

    Cons

    Expectations can become a little unrealistic when compared to the tools we are given and direction from higher management. Things are forever changing and some times that's good and some times that's not.

    Advice to Management

    Invest, appreciate, and acknowledge your people
