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

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Were 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 ManagementAdvice

    Focus on selling shoes and don't stress the sales of accessories.

    Great place to start or end a career... Not so much for the part in the middle.

    Pros

    Friendly environment. Fun product. Opportunities to work in both the wholesale and retail sectors.

    Cons

    This is a great place to start your career because the tolerant culture creates a safe learning environment, but there is a tendency to transfer under-performing employees to other departments rather than making the difficult decision to let them go. As a result, it is difficult to progress beyond the managerial level because there are limited opportunities/openings. If you want to climb a ladder, look elsewhere.
