    Poor management
    Poor pay
    Upper management doesn't care

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start requiring degrees for those who are of management and do criminal background checks. Will never complete with a champs or shoe palace because the selection is limited

    I worked at Shiekh Shoes

    Pros

    The culture of the company is great for Urban / sneakerheads. The product line, and the buyers are fantastic, however the company, and the management are very poor leaders.

    Cons

    They are all foreign and do not understand the clientele. They do not understand how to train and develop their people, nor is their technology up to date.

    Pros

    Very easy to run store and some of the styles are pretty sweet too. They were very good with hours and people interaction tends to be pretty positive.

    Cons

    Management needs some serious reconstructing. Some managers are clearly not qualified to be managers. As an employee you make this company hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. Yet they don't care. No discounts, No first pick of product. UNLESS your a manager then you can pick what ever you want. Also had a situation in which i was never given my w2. Made several attempts to call and they would say "ok ill fax it over right away" . Never received it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think of your employees , they represent your company , if their not happy then it'll reflect the job. Invest in training and in the store back room .

    Pros

    Great customer interaction that builds communication skills. Great opportunity to make connections with people.

    Cons

    Upper Management is very poor. No opportunity to advance with the company unless they desperately need you. Not enough people working on shifts. Worst District Manager I ever worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel if you guys raised the pay a bit more & allowed people to feel like they actually have the opportunity to grow within the company, then Shiekh Shoes would be a great place to work for.

    Pros

    You get to do the same thing over and over again.
    It turns into clock work and you get to stand all day!
