Former Employee - Sales Associate in Boston, MA

I worked at New Balance part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good experience working directly with customers, very fulfilling for a retail job, good company/benefits

Cons

Stressful during sales and due to poor management, no input to store/company, opportunities for advancement limited

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You can gain a lot of insight by listening more to the people on the front lines actually working in your stores- they are your untapped resource.

Recommends
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The General Manager knows what he is doing and is fair

    Cons

    The owners
    Sales Associates were on commission so customers usually bought the most expensive shoe and not the best shoe for them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your sales people.
