    I have been working at Walking Company Holdings part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Supportive company, pays well for retail (strong commission, empowers associates to take charge and often backs them in decisions

    Cons

    Pay will always be bad in retail, as well as hours. Not too much to complain about though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing really, after working retail for a number of years, this company does things considerably better than most. However, little things, such as giving the store more hours when things such as store meetings or operational tasks come up, would be a small measure that would do a world of good for helping managers.
