    I worked at Payless ShoeSource full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Professional organization, very focused on the details of retail management. Good way to learn what a national retail organization looks like.

    Cons

    Lots of shoes! You'd better like shoes as a category because you will spend your days thinking, talking and working on shoes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep looking for ways to grow the business. It helps build careers and makes Payless a more attractive place to work.
