    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 ManagementAdvice

    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
