I have been working at DSW part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Through DSW, you have the opportunity to work with a great group of people for a growing company. The company focuses on promoting from within so if you see yourself growing with the company, starting as a sales associate is the way to go.

Cons

The company pushes you to get people to sign up for the rewards program. If you aren't prepared to sell a program like that to customers, you will find working here difficult.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Relaxed Dress code, 30% discount,

    Cons

    Lack of training, high management turn over, does not enforce the values its adapted, too much stress on the rewards program even though they preach customer interaction is more important.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce the values the company so highly prizes. Collaborate by asking our opinion and not just talking over top of everybody. Be consistent, should we take back worn shoes to not? In that case, what does the company want and not the store leader. Stop giving us mixed messages.

    A whole lot of talk and not a lot of action.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great discount! Super easy job, but it gets boring at times Fun staff

    Cons

    Too much phony talk around values and not enough action around them. Very hard to get promoted, they like to pretend they promote a lot, but moving stores is not a promotion when you have the same job and pay. Too many demands and not enough support.
