    okay

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prostime of policies, office culture, work life balance, manager was awesome. 50% employee discount was great, especially for someone who loves shoes.

    ConsPay was abysmal. in nevada, 5.15 is nowhere near enough to even buy food with, much less survive and pay bills with.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRaise the pay

    ProsGreat oppoutunity to meet people, network, become great in sales.

    ConsWhen business was slow, money was low. Corporate and buyers were late on trends and bought some pretty tacky merchandise at times

    A fun roller coaster ride!

    Store Manager (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsThe discounts are amazing! Fun environment and tremendous growth opportunity! Its hard work, but it motivates you to do better!

    ConsThe hours can be very demanding and it can be hard to balance. Every region is different, there's no consistency, and the buyers should be more involved in the store and finding out what works for that demographic.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow more recognition consistently rather than annually like company functions, achievement awards, bonuses, or even pay raises.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
