    Pros

    - Okay pay at the store level if you are a manager and continue to make your weekly and monthly goals, as there are bonuses involved.
    - Incentives program called Club Elite that allows you to gain points based on sales annually and are given the chance to win prizes and a free vacation if you are one of the top performers in the company. (top 1%)
    - Growth and opportunities are possible with a lot of hard work and determination.
    - Exciting product and a 50% discount!

    Cons

    - Pay is generally on the lower end, specially when starting
    - They push their employees to a large extent and will try and get the most out of you every time.
    - Long hours, however so is retail in general
    - Upper management can be great, but some manage with a more controlling and negative manner than a positive approach.

    Advice to Management

    - You could get people to continue to work for you even longer if you managed with a positive approach and really rewarded the people working for you rather than managing through fear and control.

    Pros

    Good hours very comfortable you don't work on commission and the manager is cool and personable also they aren't judgemental or rude.

    Cons

    There is a long time that you're standing on your feet which hurts alot also you have to wear their shoes and their shoes aren't very comfortable. Also even though you don't work on commission you could lose your job if you don't sell enough shoes

    Advice to Management

    Somewhere to sit or maybe more comfortable shoes
