    Pros

    Laid back, Co-workers are cool to work with, hold sneakers for yourself, discounts (It's not much, but it's better than nothing).

    Cons

    Treats employees awfully, compensates very poorly, lack of appreciation for employees, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Stay away.

  5. Don't expect to raise a family with this job. Good place to gain retail and entry level management skills.

    Pros

    Discounts on most merchandise. Meet some nice people. Very laid back work environment.

    Cons

    Low wages. No raises. No time and half on sundays. No holiday pay. No benefits. No discounts on retros or foams. Outdated equipment. Poor communication

    Advice to Management

    Can't expect perfection if your paying people peanuts. Some people depend on there jobs to support a family. Yearly performance raises would be nice.

    Depending in what store and what manger there's not much to do. You basically work to talk to your friends, fold clothes, greet customers & get shoes.

    Pros

    Its a big company and a small company at the same time. Employees have access to everyone in the company even those who run the entire company and the owner

    Cons

    The company is not technologically advanced so some of the systems are antiquated. Advancement possibilities can be a bit limited.
