    I have been working at Allen-Edmonds part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Allen Edmonds gives you the tools to succeed, and doesn't micro manage. They create a superior product, and stand behind it and their people. A great culture of empowering and promoting from within.

    Cons

    The lack of micro managing is also a double edged sword. While it is liberating, there tends to be time that lower level staff is left out of communication regarding company strategy and direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Paul and Al are doing a fantastic job, they understand the people, product, and what it takes to be successful and are succeeding. I would not change anything and would continue to stay the course.

    I worked at Allen-Edmonds full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You get discounts on merchandise--not just Shoe discounts. Nice people you work with day-to-day. It is a friendly atmosphere most of the time.

    Cons

    Limited mobility & very tight inner sanctum. There is a certain pressure to get things out, get things done and it makes it difficult to do your best work. Very strong orientation to make numbers, less so to make great shoes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not a great place, not bad.

    I worked at Allen-Edmonds full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My boss was very supportive - he has a" corky" personality but he was a fair boss.

    Cons

    The work long hours 5:30am -4:00pm - Monday thru Thursday. Friday OT as needed. We were told that we had to work Friday's at the last minute. It makes it difficult to plan our days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider scheduling Friday's in advance, maybe automatically schedule everyother Friday, so that employees can make plans for Friday, after already putting in 40 hours - M thru T

    Continue being engaged, and exploring different innovative ideas for Company to continue growing.

    I worked at Allen-Edmonds

    Pros

    Very relaxed and easy to do. Shoes sell themselves. You don't even really need to know all that much about shoes, you just need to know how to find the ones the costumer wants. Easy job.

    Cons

    Long hours, and god awful pay. If they could pay you below the minimum wage, they probably would.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give us a raise for godsakes
