    Pros

    - Benefits for FT Employees - Great Discount - Opportunity to grow - People First mentality - Fashion forward

    Cons

    None. Don't expect to get far if you don't plan to work for it. If you give your all you'll get what you work for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing and changing to stay in touch with the customers and keep our people first attitude.

    Pros

    DISCOUNT, FLEXIBILITY, ENVIRONMENT, INTERACTION, VISUALS

    Cons

    Very demanding company requires you to make make a sales goal with no incentives. I would recommend this job to anyone who doesn't want to move up to management, its stressful and not worth the pay and hours you may have to work.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, not much upselling. Dont have to stay after closing for long periods of time. The shifts are a good amount of hours.

    Cons

    High season can be brutal and non stop busy. Lots of customer complaints about the quality of the shoes. Pay isn't great

    Advice to Management

    Become more involved with your staff and get to know them. Offer incentives for sales achievements. Better pay after 6 months would be nice.

    Pros

    Great learning experience, flexible hours, great advancement opportunities if you are willing to learn and try hard

    Cons

    You have to be a pesky sales person sometimes when your boss pressures you to make day or DM visits. They require you to never leave your customer alone and that upsets the customer so they leave and do not buy.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on genuine connection with customers rather than just forced selling and bringing out 3 pairs of shoes takes more time for recovery process.

    Pros

    Good incentives for staff, great place for those new to retail and want to learn how the business works. Good for advancement from Sales associates to ASM.

    Cons

    high turnover rate. Not enough hours given for tasks/jobs being asked to do even when making over sales plans. Little room for movement after getting a SM position. No ongoing training for advancement. Poor work/life balance. Upper management always wants more more and more - very cut throat.

    Advice to Management

    Great for Sales Associates and entry level management to get experience.
