I worked at Off Broadway Shoes

Pros

Pay is decent enough.
The people that work in the stores are great.
Benefits are on par with other retail stores.

Cons

The hours are miserable. I know that it is retail, but the office expects salaried managers to work as if they OWN their store, meaning that if the store is open, you should be there. On average, I worked 50-60 hrs per week for my 45 hours per week salary.
The number of weeks blacked out from vacation time are ridiculous. If he could, the owner would make you take your vacation in June and January.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ease up on the workload expected from your managers, and maybe they won't burn out so quickly. Turnover in retail is expected, but it's way too high at OBS.

    I worked at Off Broadway Shoes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company as a whole is going in the right direction.

    Cons

    Not organized, two different companies trying to run the show. Corporate policies are ignored by regional management and put's own policies in place, a lot of double talk from regional management, says one thing then does another. Not a very "Team" friendly environment created by management at near by stores, not working for common goal. Very frustrating little training provided for anyone wanting to get into management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act like you care about your employees a little empathy and flexibility goes along way with retaining management staff.
