    I worked at Rack Room Shoes

    Pros

    The benefits and potential bonus for store managers are very good. After 5 years, I had four weeks of vacation time per year plus the potential for a company-paid vacation upon meeting sales increase goals. There is opportunity for advancement if you are patient or willing to move.

    Cons

    Expected workload can be unreasonable. Merchandising and recovery can require a lot of physical labor, as entire walls of product may need to be moved to accommodate newly received merchandise or to fill in holes from sold merchandise. The (recent) initiative to give customers 100% focus and poor allotment of payroll hours make this very challenging. The entire store must be re-merchandised several times a year. There is no allotment of extra payroll hours for this, and working on it during business is discouraged. Thus, it falls on the store manager to work on this alone overnight in addition to regular shifts. District/Regional/Corporate management communicates poorly and offers more criticism than help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to remember their experiences working as a store manager. They no longer seem to be aware of the problems stores face. There needs to be a better effort to respond to the issues and needs brought to their attention. Increased payroll hours are needed.
