    I worked at Wolverine World Wide full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work is easy... 90% of the day is standing around and selling. No one really checks up on you so I always took 2 hours lunch breaks and got paid for it.

    Cons

    I had the most dysfunctional district manager in my entire career. She was an absolute mess. she would dress unprofessional.She never showed up to my store. She always relied on other managers to do her work because she was incompetent in her position. You have no say so in your business. You have to ask permission for everything you do, its absolutely ridiculous. My team is the only reason I stayed as long as I did. I wanted to make sure those that deserved the promotions actually received them. I am so glad I got out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some structure into the company. Your outlet business is a joke. You have managers making 50k a year and doing nothing for it but working 6 hours a day and taking 2 hour lunch breaks. Get involved!

    Pros

    Great Brands
    A lot of really good people

    Cons

    Poor leadership
    Top down approach that does not value input
    Senior Leadership does not appreciate open or direct feedback
    Very poor process mtg

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership needs to connect more closely with the brands in order to drive great brand mtg and growth. Sr. leadership seems "to corporate" and fully disconnected from the brands.

    I have been working at Wolverine World Wide

    Pros

    You get nice discounts on clothes, shoes, etc for family and friends.

    Cons

    Upper managment has taken a serious downward turn since the present CEO took over, all the good upper managment that made the company what it is today have left. It use to be a family feeling operation that really cared about the community, but now it seems all they care about is building it up big enough to rip it apart and sell pieces to the highest bidder. They are the ideal bad corporation with bad leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new leadership, remeber the community don't just sponsor events create new jobs.

    I worked at Wolverine World Wide

    Pros

    Pretty much the only positive I can say about Wolverine is that the mid level management spends so much of their time in meetings with each other that they leave the lower level employees alone to do what they want.

    Cons

    See my "pros" statement. You would think based on how many levels of management this company has that it was ten times the size it actually is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire most of the mid level managers. They don't do anything except make it more difficult to accomplish your goals.
