    I have been working at Brown Shoe

    Pros

    upper level management great to work with

    Cons

    money not great for people who work really hard and produce great results.. their "stolens" approach is toally not fair to the managers and how hard we work to prevent theft with no real support from the company...it should NOT be influential in figuring our monthly bonus since the company does nothing to support us in preventing shoplifting....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more money for jobs well done better opportunities for bonuses see above coment about "stolens"

    I worked at Brown Shoe

    Pros

    If you are a shoe junkie then this a great place to grow your collection. 30% discount off of merchandise. Once a year you get 40% off.

    Cons

    At famous Footwear every customer is different, but they want you to sell to them using a script. Customers could tell you were being phony and not speaking naturally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the Connect 4 program. It makes you sound like a robot and the customers pick up on the fact that you are not concerned with their needs and only trying to make a sale.
