    Total upward mobility with expanding U.S. market.

    Cons

    Company has HIGH standards for world class customer service and even higher standards for mystery shop scores, some not up to the challenge view this as a negative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great communication!
    Very present ROM.
    Standards are clearly communicated from top down.

    Pros

    Excellent product line with substantial marketing to back up the product. Product had a unique fit that equated to comfort. The design of the golf shoes were unique at the time. Easy to sell in and it sold through when positioned correctly.

    Cons

    Independent rep w/ no benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue what you are doing but trust that your reps are out working hard to promote the product.

    I have been working at ECCO Sko

    Pros

    The product is one of the best on the market
    You feel good helping people with messed up feet
    It's an international company
    Free shoes every 6 months and awesome discount

    Cons

    Corporate's left hand doesn't know what the right is doing
    Unorganized
    Product given to us does not fit the needs of our customers, even though we've said what we need
    Part-time management does not get any benefits
    Shops are end all be all of the store in terms of customer satisfaction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My general manager was awesome, but upper management would give us directives and then we would receive an email from another manager telling us not to do what the other manager stated. Neither manager was communicating with one another. Some major sales events that we were held accountable for were only given the day before the event with no prior notice. Get Organized! Don't base everything on shops, as there were quite a few we proved that the shopper didn't even come into the store.

    I am proud to have worked for ECCO shoes not only for their superior product but also the teamwork driven atmosphere.

    I worked at ECCO Sko

    Pros

    Its a small company that works effeciently and gives a warm family oriented approach with lots of little perks to the company's appreciation through all levels of employment. They offer a great benefits package.

    Cons

    Due to small size of the company there is not much turn around and advancement is limited. Salary tends to be on the lower side of average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is not much advice to offer except for stronger cross training both within and between departments or a "hands-on" orientation day so employees can understand thier role in the flow of the operation.

    I worked at ECCO Sko as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    very friendly colleagues, no late hours expected - good work-life balance, nice atmosphere in Tønder, employee discount, creative work encouraged

    Cons

    no salary for interns but lots of gifts, not so attentive supervisor (busy with other tasks within the company) - had to ask for a recommendation letter several times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    standardized letter of recommendation would add to the internship, more information on possible career opportunities would have been appreciated

    I worked at ECCO Sko full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Discount is good, and the people on the "workfloor"

    Cons

    management is not good, big pressure to achieve and no growth prospect

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To follow their code of conduct toward all employees,to let their workers leave with their holiday payment, end of contract letter,and that they follow their own stress policy.

    Unnaproachable area manager
    No appreciation given to staff for all the hard work expected from them
    Terrible pay

    Only negetives recognised by upper management no positive feedback EVER!
    Till system old needs to be updated
    No trust in staff, e.g When there was no managment 3 part time sales asisstants ran the store however are not trusted to put a refund through or log deliveries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire a ROM with people skills. Treat your store staff with a little more respect they are making the money afterall.
