    I have been working at Shoe Carnival full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    If you pay attention you can get trained well in lots of different aspects of retail: customer service of course but also in merchandising, advertising, logistics, loss prevention, product cost and margin, payroll all of these handled at store level by management and even some associates get this training

    Cons

    Company does not provide any additional payroll for training new employees.
     Also very far behind when it comes to technology. Using older computers. Nothing is sync together. waste a lot of time

    I have been working at Shoe Carnival full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A lot of stores have a really fun environment and great management staff. You get to play games with customers. You get to negotiate with customers too. The job is actually pretty easy - just make sure you do it right. Promotes from within.

    Cons

    When you get the stores with managers who are not very good, the overall experience can turn into a nightmare. Some managers make promises they can't keep. Promotion from within is quite slow - I'm talking years to get a promotion for which someone is "in-training." It's retail so: mean customers and working holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speed up training and promotions. This company has lost quite a few great people for this reason.
