    Pros

    In the past year we have seen a huge culture shift. Everyone, starting with the CEO is on board with our values. Major improvement have been made in perks to associates including fair market pay, longer paid vacation, benefits, RRSP contributions, health & wellness initiatives. The company recently held it's first ever Store Managers' Conference where every store manager from across the country was taken to Niagara Falls for a few days which included an award ceremony, workshops, meet and greets with leaders from the corporate office, a large trade show with our top vendors, not to mention all the free swag. It's a good time to be part of the Town Shoes Limited team.

    Cons

    The company is going through some growing pains as we continue to transition from a family owned business to a large corporation.

    I have been working at Town Shoes

    Pros

    Forty percent off all shoes and handbags, no restrictions

    Cons

    Dress code is very limiting. Must always cover shoulders, must wear all black or only a coloured top with black overtop, etc. People are constantly "let go", managers, district managers, and people at head office. Decisions made at higher levels do not take into account the knowledge and experience of those managing stores.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your managers - they have the frontline experience.
