Current Employee - Store Manager in Detroit, MI

I have been working at Journeys shoes full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Well pros for this job are endless. If you are a manager or a seasoned part time employee you have your district managers number and can call or text him/or her whenever you have a problem or a question. You get benifits if full time which include paid vacations. Most the people who complain about this job or get fired just aren't good people or are just bitter because they either stole something or ran their store in to the ground. Of course you are going to get fired and yeah dms make promises they cant always keep but they try their best. I have ran a store up and ran a store down but even when i did bad they didn't just fire me they put me in a position to get back on my feet and on a winning team so i can get another shot at running a store. My employees and other managers are closer to me than my family they are their for me and i am there for them. Its better than a team, its a family and a wild one we have our share of fights but you get passed that. If you are passionate and driven you can go as far as you want 100% of the store and district managers were promoted from within and headquarters is close to that its a great job just say yes. You can bonus if your doing well and wear whatever you want look however you.want and act like whoever you are its not a cookie cutter job

Cons

You work a lot and in the summer sales are down but get over it and just wait till back to school and christmas you will make money

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Help co managers make more money... I know your giving them the chance to bonus but just pay them a little bit more please

    Former Employee - Journeys Assistant Manager

    I worked at Journeys shoes full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    40% discount on everything
    relaxed dress code

    Cons

    when part time, not enough hours
    when full time, too many hours
    commission is only 4%
    Salary is abysmal for the amount of hours managers are expected to work
    no raises
    too much pressure for sales when entire mall is under performing
    lack of upward mobility - you will only really peak at store manager if you can live off the salary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work with your people!
    district managers should treat store management like people instead of slaves
    should not punish under performance by reducing managers to 1 day off a week
