    Pros

    not a hard job and can be very boring at times.

    Cons

    you call customer service and they cant even tell you whats in the warehouse. that's bad customer service but they are working on it. got there and no one knew very much about shoes and really wasn't focused on sales because its not commission. so why try hard to sell when you get paid the same to let someone walk out the door? manager had no clue how to train employees to sell. Doesn't follow policies in the handbook and low wages

    Advice to Management

    you are only strong as your weakest employee. so learn how to teach someone to sell better. you need to give more incentive

    I worked at SAS Shoes (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are no positive aspects to working for SAS Shoemakers.

    Cons

    SAS Shoemakers does not care about the life-safety of its workers. Moreover, SAS Shoemakers operates a factory in Acuna, Mexico, while touting its brand as being American-made. Work for SAS Shoemakers if you are a dishonest person who doesn't mind working in a store with blocked fire exits.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together.

    Pros

    The customers and the feeling that I was able to help fit a customer with a quality product.

    Cons

    Having to sell the product within a very set guideline. I enjoyed chatting with customers but I was told to keep it short.

    I worked at SAS Shoes full-time

    Pros

    Fun activities throughout year for employees.. Casual attire everyday. Company garden for employees is a nice perk.

    Cons

    Very old school. Behind times on technology, family life balance, wages. No real training opportunities or promotional opportunities. Favoritism rules and there are no real performance metrics. Raises are biased and go to upper management. No real retirement. Complainers are blacklisted.

    Advice to Management

    The divisions within company between management vs non management need to be addressed. There needs to be a voice for administrative staff. Prizes should not be a substitute for competitive compensation. More management training. Micromanaging seems to be the ONLY management style. Empower employees.

    Pros

    Peopleare ffriendly, great place to work not a job to do. Meet lots of people from all over. Good opportunity

    Cons

    Prices to high, shoes not made the same so you have to deal with angry people at times. Shoes not comfort like should bring

    Advice to Management

    Make softer inserts,freeze prices


  8. SAS Shoes products are well-made, but management needs some serious accountability

    Pros

    Customers, co-workers, somewhat decent wage, a weekly paycheck, time off, and benefits are great assets in this job

    Cons

    Management at the local and district level needs some serious investigation. All managers need to be held accountable for not doing their jobs well both ethically and professionally. NO exceptions.

    Advice to Management

    Watch all managers closely to make sure they practice ethical and professional behavior. Many do, but some are failing miserably. Make people accountable not only for their work but more importantly for their behavior towards others. Most employees detest any company that states they have an open-door policy and claims to be professional, ethical, fair, advocates for a harmonious workplace, etc. when it's clear that is NOT being done. Never ask something of your employees that you are not willing to do yourself. Employees who work directly with customers KNOW best what customers want. MANAGERS ARE NOT ALWAYS RIGHT BY ANY MEANS.

    I worked at SAS Shoes full-time

    Pros

    Most of the employees are great for the most part, 100% American made products, occasional bonus depending on business.

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid, zero work-life balance, incompetent upper management, CEO needs to be removed from role, unfair treatment, over step boundaries, No room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to be fully trained and held to higher standards and accountability, better pay in comparison to the market, Compensation for working on weekends if you're M-F only. Fire all senior management and start over!! Promote employees based on the work, not the length of time with the company. Learn the business before making decisions solely based on yourself.
