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.

    Pros

    The whole company has a sense of family and unity. All the other associates are extremely helpful and the company knows what they want out of each and every one.

    Cons

    There is very little chance of advancement. As far as I know every store has a number of full time spots, so until one of those opens up you're stuck as part-time.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better. Realize that they are the basis of your money-making machine

    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.
