Pros

Colleagues were very friendly.
Benefits are "okay", free work shoes with an extra pair per quarter.
If you are a woman, you'll enjoy the benefits.
Flexible Hours
If you enjoy providing Customer Satisfaction you'll enjoy this type of work.

Cons

Far too intense with unrealistic daily selling targets.
What would be impossible for you, is "do-able" for management.
Management can be very patronizing.
Not a male friendly environment.
Sales incentives are badly organised with minimal pay rises, the starting pay is really really low.

Advice to Management

Go through all the features and benefits of every product with a new start. Be more organised with sales incentives which should actually an assessment of the employees work, then go over it with them. Rather than taking one aside and telling them what they should do better. Pay attention to your employee satisfaction, not just customer satisfaction.

    Pros

    The salary is pretty good for a retail position. People are generally friendly and try to recognize good work with incentives and rewards.

    Cons

    Management can be unorganized and hypocritical. Many of the shoe styles are not very fashionable for a New York market.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more normality in the schedules. It can be hard to plan around this job, not because you have too many hours but because you aren't sure when they'll be and get very little heads up.
