    Pros

    Strong historical results. Portfolio of good brands. Corporate office is located in an are at that provides a good quality of life. Income opportunities are reasonable at senior levels.

    Cons

    Over the last 5 to 8 years, leadership has dramatically weakened. The company has become over weight with attorneys and accountants in senior roles. Lack of merchants and experiences shoe industry professionals will likely impact the growth in the long-run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget about the shoes, the people that know about them and the customers that buy them.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Wolverine World Wide.

    Interview Details

    I applied in may and didn't get a call for an interview until august. I went into the store and did a pre-interview screening. Then when I went in for my scheduled interview, the store manager was out of the store conducting a different interview who showed up at the wrong time. So we rescheduled and we sat and interview the next day. A week later. I had heard nothing so I called and got a phone interview scheduled with the store manager in San Diego. After than we just waited on a back ground check and formal job offer.
