I worked at Bakers Footwear full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

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

Cons

The 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 ManagementAdvice

Show more recognition consistently rather than annually like company functions, achievement awards, bonuses, or even pay raises.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Jacksonville, FL

    I worked at Bakers Footwear part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    50% discount on all regular priced items
    30% discount on all sale items

    Cons

    TERRIBLE HOURS
    Commission rate is ridiculous
    Manager and assistant managers are the only people making decent money!
    Shifts are only 3 to 4 hours for part timers
    The most amount of shifts you can expect to get in a week is 2
    Sometimes not scheduled at all resulting in no paycheck
    On call shifts never go through
    Manager is phony!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management NEEDS to be organized and not constantly forgetting to send out the schedule every week. Also stop stringing your employees along! Instead of giving them horrible hours until they quit be upfront and tell them what they are doing wrong so they can correct their mistakes! Or stop being a coward and fire them!
