    Pros

    Flexible, Relaxed, Diverse. This company is passionate about their product and keeping their customers 100% happy.

    Cons

    Too much turnover. I've seen so many people come and go. The company needs to figure out a way to drive their employees

    Advice to Management

    Work hard to bring a balance between being a superior and a regular coworker. It's great to be work friends, but you don't want to lose authority.

    Pros

    In the summer, prepare to work a lot of hours. This is a great job for someone who wants to spend their summer saving up money. There's also plenty of room for advancement in the company.

    Cons

    Overall, it was a pretty good place to work. I would've liked a little more schedule flexibility, however.

    Advice to Management

    I honestly don't really have any advice to management.

    Pros

    - Great coworkers/staff.
    - Friendly and helpful management and training.
    - Flexible hours, good for a high school or college job.
    - When business is slow there aren't as many hours to go around.

    Cons

    - Can't generally get more than 25 hrs./week unless you're an assistant manager.
    - Much of the experience is dependent on what kind of manager you have (mine is great, but I'm sure not all are).
    - Corporate is unrealistic and seems to put unfair amounts of pressure on management for things that are out of their control and would rather hassle/harass managers rather than understand their situations.

    Advice to Management

    - Keep doing what you're doing; hiring good people and trying your best to keep employees happy.
    - As for corporate, be more realistic. We can't make more people come in to buy shoes if you keep running the same crappy sales for 6months straight.

    Pros

    Wonderful peers and staff, easy to get along with. Very fast paced, every day goes by really quickly as a result.

    Cons

    Because this is a fast paced environment, you need to be able to adjust to changes quickly. If you are searching for a steady workflow, this environment is not for you.
