I worked at Brown Shoe full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Loved working for this company. Started as a sales associate and worked my way up to store manager in 2 years. Many career advancement opportunity.

Cons

Not much payroll to work with during slow times. Many times worked single coverage for the majority of the day. This didn't help being able to control shrink. Did not enjoy dealing with loss prevention on a daily basis. Also a lot of nights and weekends since store managers need to be scheduled during peak sales times, which s understandable and expected in a retail environment but I not ideal for balancing work and life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more payroll so store managers can staff appropriately. Better coverage helps stores provide better customer service, which is our number one priority.

    Pros

    No matter what problem the local work force encountered, it was met with a can do attitude and a real willingness to find a solution.

    Cons

    Working for this company, the first thing that you learn is that the corporate office believes that they can make no mistakes, no matter what. They were always correct.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sooner or later you will over capacity yourselves into a financial hole.
