    I have been working at Payless ShoeSource full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A 30% off all regular and clearance items. Also a 50% off once a month. Tuition reimbursement. Good medical coverage for full timers.

    Cons

    If you have children and value weekend time don't work for Payless. Managers, well at least mine, take every weekend off so you are scheduled. I understand the need to work weekends but 8-10 in a row when the store manager has 6-8 off is ridiculous. District managers don't watch the store leaders closely enough. Mine works off the clock and adjusts everydays time sheet (illegal here in California). Brought it to his attention and nothing changed. I gave up. They work you way to hard for so little. After 6 years and being both an assistant and a store leader I can honestly say Payless is a last resort company.

    To focused on stuff we don't have control of. The goals are sometimes ridiculous. You are in charge of customers but given an hour to de paper, sensor, sale tag it and put into racks. But have a 40% conversion rate a 3 items per every sale and 100% phone #, email and address capture rate. All while by yourself. While picking up the shoes that the customers leave all over the floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch your leaders better. Find out if they treat the staff well. If a store has a high turn over rate question it. Stop being cheap give the stores payroll. Payless we don't need stores in other countries when the stores you have now are lacking.
