    Pros

    The management is very personable and helpful. There are always extra hours that you can pick up.

    Cons

    If you're part-time you are only scheduled 3 days per week. You are usually working around major holidays because that's when sales increase.

    Advice to Management

    Work better on scheduling employees as well as working with them on the hours.

    Pros

    Lots of them. Freedom, not micro managed & treated very fairly. Upper management are good decision makers for the most part as well. Very few retail jobs can be viewed as careers but Shoe Carnival is one of them.

    Cons

    Number one are the travel strains. Puts a lot pressure on your family life to throw yourself into this job.

    Advice to Management

    We need to stay ahead the curve better. Behind in a lot of aspects when it comes to technology. We play catch up a lot.

    Pros

    You get a great employee discount, managers and coworkers were always nice, fun place to work, get to work more hours if someone calls out :)

    Cons

    Rude customers, get sent home early if not making the day (sales wise) and almost no weekends off unless requested it.

    Advice to Management

    Give harder working employees more hours. Arrange schedule so everyone has at least one weekend a month off.
