    I worked at Skechers U.S.A.

    Pros

    None-Fullerton area is really nice.

    Cons

    Skx Retail Division is stuck in the 80s...that's when Bob Greenberg was bankrupting his first company L.A gear remember? The same result will happen here over the next decade as the company refuses to invest in any technology not even email! H.R is not effective and are discussed terribly throughout org. They are so disconnected focused on recruiting good looking 'branded' people who have zero business acumen. Stores are not supported, managers forced to work while clocked out for lunch. 50 boxes of transfer product showing up out of nowhere daily...Retail Division needs an overhaul. Regional Manager won a camaro from the company she proudly flaunts while employees struggle to feed their families. Start the firing with the Director of Stores then work your way down!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pursue licensing agreements with partners who can drive traffic..I'm thinking US tour De France team sponsorship.

    not much promotion from within. needs to hire more employees!

    promote more from within, there is a lot of good employees that work for the company that usually get over looked for outsiders.

    Pros

    Learn a lot of management duties as an assistant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through with SM's to make sure they are developing a pool of strong future managers

    Store Manager

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Skechers U.S.A.

    Pros

    I worked for this company for 2 years and I honestly cannot think of a single positive thing I could say about this company.

    Cons

    horrible hours, minimal pay, unrealistic expectations, awful support from district manager and even less from corporate, if your not a well endowed woman you will not move up. I used to sit outside the store before I had to open the doors and cry because I hated that job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give up and start over.

    Expected to make miracles out of barely anything. Extremely political company, Raises were not given often, no room for advancement, Terminates employees for not living up to unrealistic goals and tasks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to stop having so much politics, appreciate people that really want to be team players, hire employees that have compassion for the job.

    Pros

    good discount on shoes

    Cons

    Retail division is poorly run and there is constant turn over because of the abuse. Miscommunication happens everyday because the retail president demands things to happen instantly but then constantly changes his mind and then blames it on you for not listening. Your quality of life will be destroyed because of all the stress and all the yelling that is directed at everyone - you will spend everyday trying to stay out of the line of fire but it is useless because you will get screamed at and told you are worthless. This place is run by fear and not by respect and they have no dedication to retain their good employees and they have lost a lot of quality people. Run as far as you can from this place and look elsewhere, it's not worth it!!
