    I worked at Skechers U.S.A. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great staff as far as mid-level staff. Good benefits, discount on shoes. Always busy, never bored in position.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to industry averages. High turnover among staff. Not enough opportunity to advance in the company. Cliques among the old managers from L.A. Gear.

    Advice to Management

    Need more interaction between staff and management, and more communication when changes are made.

    I have been working at Skechers U.S.A. full-time

    Pros

    Growing company, lots of opportunity for advancement. Travel to California every June for Global Sales Conference. Some truly amazing people within the company but depends on your location. Company is branching out into fitness apparel and products so there are always new and exciting products coming out.

    Cons

    Poor compensation for all store level positions, not competitive at all. Museum standards expected on very minimal payroll, especially during peak season. Poor understanding of work load by upper management and corporate. Company is heading down a path towards heavy paperwork load, taking managers out of their own business.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to basics. Trust your managers to know their business and manage it accordingly. Filling out 20 different logs for every little thing is a waste of time. Create an auditing department so that store managers don't have to dedicate an entire day out of every week to just sitting at a desk going through paperwork. Go back to focusing on people; developing, coaching, and customer service.

    Try to be more invested in your managers

    I have been working at Skechers U.S.A. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discount on shoes, sometimes friends and family can take full advantage of the discount as well. Very easy job, even in management it's easy to enjoy yourself and the work that you do. You work closely with your peers, so you get to know the people you work with pretty well. Mall hours aren't so bad, plus you get some weekend days off. Room for growth within the company. Skechers is a growing company and stores are opening constantly.

    Cons

    Large truck days can be a little crazy, but manageable. Customers make a mess of the store. All the time.

    I worked at Skechers U.S.A. part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I never thought I would enjoy working in the shoe side of retail sales, but I did. Great team, commission and base pay was offered in the malls, but NOT cut-throat. Got transferred to Warehouse where I learned even more. Management is down to earth and accommodating to your needs as best as they can be, and many are well-versed in fashion, so stay on top of current trends in order to best help customers.

    Cons

    Upon transfer however, I didn't get an adjustment in my pay to compensate for my loss in the commission I would have earned at the mall. My pay as an assistant manager was cut drastically.

    Advice to Management

    Would be great if District Management took more time to spend one on one with middle-management and associates to decipher future goals. SOME of us have extensive resumes in sales and would have loved more opportunities to go beyond the store level.

    Pros

    Great view of the beach! Good work life balance for most positions. The company is involved in some charities that help out the community and people in need.

    Cons

    There are no SOP's for any job function, which leads to costly mistakes and unnecessary finger pointing. There are many supervisory position holders that need further training in soft skills. There are consistent emotional outbursts, which are disruptive and have lead to poor office morale.

    Advice to Management

    Create SOPs for all job functions in writing so that they may be referenced by all employees. Set up mandatory monthly training on soft skills for all employees that hold supervisory positions.
