    Pros

    Didn't stay here to long before I transferred but the atmosphere isn't as stressful at other stores, and the team is very friendly.

    Cons

    Pay is not as great as I would and work can be a bore. But I did not work here long enough to find anything bad to really share.

    Advice to Management

    Transferring stores can be a bit of a challenge. I had trouble when I decided to move and ended up finding a new job completely at a different company.

    Pros

    Good hours, helpful management, willing to help you learn about how to be the best DSW employee you can be.

    Cons

    Low pay, working truck can be tough, and getting DSW Rewards signups can be tough when customers do not want to sign up. Pay should definitely be higher. Please ask Corporate to examine the DSW return policy. DSW loses too much money because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being incredible.

    Pros

    The majority of the company lives the values. Refreshing to work with this group.

    Cons

    Lots of change very fast the last two years. We believe but let's not go back to feeling like we need checklists.

    Advice to Management

    The ability to develop is why I have stayed. Don't lose that as everything rolls out.

    Pros

    Good Pay, Nice Discount, Add hours to make more money, Friendly co-workers, friendly managers.

    Cons

    The Rewards and Shoephoria PRESSURE that is put on you.

    Advice to Management

    The Rewards program. It would work out with 100% signing up if they offered the $10.00 at the time of signing up. A lot of people say never mind when they hear they have to wait. People like instant gratification. DSW really needs to consider this change.

    Pros

    Great values within the company, flexible scheduling, associate discount, and great learning experience.

    Cons

    Some stores are better than others. I personally have worked at three different locations and it's really all about the management that make a great store. Unfortunately, my current store deflated my morale for the company. I really loved DSW and everything about my job until I transferred to this store. Managers are like tyrants and treat you like you're less than them. There's also a lot of favoritism where it shouldn't be. Lazy workers are allowed to just stand around and talk while me and a couple of the hard workers do all of the work.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the bad management in certain stores! There's a reason there is such a high turnover. Start investigating because you are losing incredible talent and the real hard workers!
