It was a good learning experience as far as SKU's and organizing shoes, but besides that it's a remidial job.

Pros

It is a relatively decent atmosphere and there is a break room. It is a good learning experience and there is room for growth over time.

Cons

The kids aisle gets very crowded, crazy and busy. Sometimes the customers are too much to handle because they let their kids run around and do whatever they want to do with many boxes of shoes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They should listen to their employees more and try to help out the late night closing shift crew so they don't get out so late.

    Pros

    None really, the company sees you as completely replaceable.

    Cons

    Bad pay, zero hours, and hardly any room to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start respecting your employees.
