    Pros

    Hard work is recognized by superiors, and is well noted. In about a year and a half, I went from first ever job to Store Team Leader (manager). In the last two years working here, I have no complaints and plan on staying as long as possible.

    Cons

    As with any retail/sales job, sometimes you feel like as an entry level position, you "don't matter". In my experience, that is only the case of you don't put forth effort in doing your job. Honestly, I can't think of one major downer

    Advice to Management

    Make in store visits more frequent, and have the suppliers come in stores to actually see what people want. Too hard to communicate with them otherwise, and we end up with a lot of product people (at certain locations) don't want

    Pros

    Great benefits! Fitness facility and fitness classes offered are wonderful. Facility is beautiful. Very nice co-workers. Vending machines come in handy.

    Cons

    Facility needs some sort of cafeteria. Repercussions for taking advantage of the "Open Door" policy IF it is not what management wants to hear.

    Pros

    The employee's who work there are amazing. The job was fun.

    Cons

    HR doesn't investigate anything. So if any rumor's get spread, you might as well quit as soon as you hear it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employee's happy and be honest and upfront with them.

    Pros

    Good experience in sales and speaking to benefits of different products offered. Good way to build team chemistry.

    Cons

    It started off at a good hourly rate then we went to a lower rate with commission. The commission was good for the full time employees but not so great for the part time.

    Advice to Management

    A more structured system to request time off and clocking in and out. More benefits offered to part time employees.

    Pros

    Fun, up beat environment. If you like shoes and talking to people this is a nice place to be. Flexible schedules and decent benefits..

    Cons

    Micro managing. Commission based for sales, not a place to make good money. Forced to sell other products other than shoes and clothes. POLITCIS for management, its not what you do its who you know, or likes you. Constant manipulation, Everyone is replaceable, no employee appreciation, its a matter of time before you quit or get fired. No one retires from here. All fun stops when you get promoted into management.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on taking care of the people who make you money everyday. Appreciate employees who have given their time, life, bodies, energy, and youth to your company. Happy employees, happy customers, in that order.


  11. Good for a college job.

    Pros

    Employee discounts were a pretty good perk. Also first dibs on all of the latest and greatest shoes.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible. Everyone always want you to do more with less, but that is pretty much every company now a days.
