    I have been working at Brown Shoe


    Management teams work together frequently.


    Payroll changes each week which will cause your bi-weekly pay to vary. No bonuses for assistant managers; no bonuses of any kind. Can't use vacation time during back to school season and Christmas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more payroll to stores and bonuses.
