Review Highlights

Pros
  • Great core values, with a great focus on customer experience (in 4 reviews)

  • Very Easy job expect in a huge store with no hours then it becomes quite the challenge more workload on less ppl for same amount of money (in 4 reviews)


Cons
  • There is a lot of turnover because of the low pay, so if you have a car you can expect to be going and helping out other stores constantly (in 7 reviews)

  • At Store Manager level, there's not much room for advancement within the company unless you are willing to relocate to California (in 4 reviews)

    Pros

    They give an awesome discount and free shoes for up and coming new styles. You get paid for your work hours even over time. Fast paced environment never a dull moment.

    Cons

    Although you are paid for every minute, you usually get barebone payroll and over the top shipments that can not be managed

    Be sure to have time management

    Pros

    I love the flexibility of work hours. The upper management has done a great job acclimating me to the retail management needs of Skechers.

    Cons

    Not really a "con" but sales in general is a tough gig. You have to exert yourself physically and mentally while concentrating on maximizing crew efficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on team oriented solutions that benefit our diverse clients.

    Pros

    Footwear discount, great corporate team

    Cons

    Stressful, bad District leadership, shoes hurt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I basically got fired because I had a relationship with another Skechers employee in a different store in a different borough. I was given ridiculous expectations (i.e keeping my store clean but we cleaned every single day and the prior SM hadn't cleaned in 5 years) and supposedly this led to me being let go. I should have filed a law suit for discrimination!
