Cons

No follow up from supervisor, completely abandoned to yourself
Family management so not all competent and in the right position
Supervisor not professional, have personal preferences in regards of employees and shows it
A lot of traveling, often working during weekend and often outside of your city
No coaching or advice for opportunity to become better

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a better communication with staff. Give them tips and advices so they can be able to grow and become better. More follow up and expression of what you are waiting for as tasks and work.
If something is wrong, take the time to explain instead of making them feel like they were idiots.

    Pros

    Meeting alot of great and loyal customers.

    Cons

    They have the worst human resources dept. ever!!! Complaints get swept under the carpet!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue! Your shoes don't sell on their own! It's NOT all about $$$$$$ It's about thanking your staff for all their hard work. Instead of the neg comments from the DM's How about THANKS to the sales staff for making our company so profitable!!

    I have been working at Skechers U.S.A.

    Pros

    Really fun atmosphere if you're in a store with good people. Pretty easy job. Pay is better than most retail. Very flexible scheduling - good for students, second jobs.

    Cons

    If you are not full time do not count on your hours. They often make cuts with little notice (from corporate level not store manager). They don't seem to care about their part time employees at all. It's very difficult to get a full time position as there are 2 per store max (store manager and assistant store manager). People who deserve these positions often get passed up for outsiders They often change their commission structure as well resulting in getting great pay one week and an unlivable wage the next. The commission and hour cuts are horrible. If going here part time do not depend on it for your sole source of income no matter how good it is when you start.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take better care of your employees
