I have been working at DSW full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

There is so many reasons why I love working at DSW, the people, the product, the challenge, the customers, Everything! But, if I had to whittle it down to one thing, it has to be that I matter. They listen to me, they ask me my thoughts on issues, I am included in corporate initiatives, I am challenged and developed, they support me and charities that I volunteer with, and they allow me to be a business owner. It wasn't always the case, when I first started working at DSW it was very task focused, policy focused, and they have grown with time to become what I feel is one the greatest companies to work for!

Cons

At DSW, they know their faults, they acknowledge them, come up with solutions, and tackle them. For many of us managers we are activators, and we want something now, and are very impatient, but with patience come tested and tried policies, processes, and IT. It is when we rush through something, that is when we have issues; whether it is the scheduling tool, a computer program, or anything else. But they are always quick to rectify it.

Advice to Management

Continue on our Journey! We are making great strides, and it keeps getting better!

    Pros

    overall fun questions with a group of 10 people (including myself)

    Cons

    You really have to out shine everyone. Once you hear other peoples answer you can modify what you want to say.

    Advice to Management

    come prepared with some question. such as Why do you want to work here ? If you were a shoe what would you be and why ? explain some type of experience you had with dealing with an angry customer ? have you ever had a disagreement with your boss/ supervisor and how did you handle it?
