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

Pros

Good work experience especially those looking for their first job Flexible hours during peak Most of the customers are very nice and appreciate your help

Cons

Unrealistic sales goals some days Customers will sometimes make a big fuss over not getting something for an extra discount Almost impossible to get promoted to full time A LOT of pressure on the associates to make sales goals and get sign ups for the rewards program Pressuring customers who do not want to be a rewards member for whatever reason

Advice to Management

Actually talk to every associate and figure out from their view point what needs to change in the way each store is ran. Also, appreciate however many people are signed up to be a rewards member and not focus on how many choose not to for their own personal reasons

    Pros

    its a friendly environment, the managers hand pick the staff so they mesh well. Definitely a team effort.

    Cons

    the ear piece gets annoying and distracting. the constant pressure to sign people up for the rewards program. the minimal pay for all the extra duties we do that aren't in our job description. their dress code is also a problem because they pick and choose when to complain or give you a hard time about what you wear even if its appropriate. $8 minimum

    Advice to Management

    Look at everyone's attire during every huddle before singling anyone out!! It definitely feels that there are days where overlook one person while penalizing someone else whose dressed the exact same way.
