Awesome Place

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Mesa, AZ

ProsI think it depends on the store manager whether you had a good experience, but I had an awesome manager.
Good Discount 30% on any shoe including clearance.
Awesome coworkers
Clean Store I worked in.
Awesome customers
My manager was flexible with my schedule.
Great opportunites to advance.

ConsWere more focused on selling accessories than shoes.
Some of the stores located in the mall are ridiculous.
Some assistant managers were so lazy.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on selling shoes and don't stress the sales of accessories.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Don't complain to Corporate!

    Store Manager (Former Employee)
    Tulsa, OK

    I worked at Brown Shoe full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Overall the job wasn't too hard, can get some rewards/bonuses for pushing hard during competitions.
