    I worked at Steven Madden part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great employee discounts and you get a free pair of shoes each season!

    Cons

    The culture of the store is completely dependent on management and those you work with. When I started, there was a great store manager and everyone was like family. Work was fun and exciting. Unfortunately, corporate did not respond appropriately, going through 3 different store managers in just a few months.

    Advice to Management

    Team meeting are essential to keep everyone on the same page.

    Pros

    the benefits are the only acceptable thing in the company

    Cons

    Unless you are a department head. you are overworked and underpaid. There is no respect or appreciation from upper management. With tons of complaints against specific management, nothing is done to improve the situation. There is no training program and you are belittled if you don't know something that you were never taught. There are no opportunities for growth, regardless of what you are told, unless you know a department head.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees and learn to treat them with respect. There is a reason that the corporate office is a revolving door. Also, HR needs to learn to address and resolve issues instead of pushing them under the rug.

    I worked at Steven Madden part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - the discount on shoes and handbags. (might have spent too much of paycheck back into their hands....) - a lot of leeway for part-timers when it comes to the scheduling - very little cleaning - my boss was awesome

    Cons

    - a lot of pressure on sales even on part timers (when compared to full timers) - rewards only benefited the full timers - no commission for part timers only hourly rate

    Advice to Management

    there should be some separate section for the part timers for quotas met ---- rewards.

    Pros

    The best part of working at This location was the people. Best coworkers!!! You also get a great discount.

    Cons

    Working in retail is never ideal. Working weekends is a must, and holiday hours are awful.

    Advice to Management

    Give the employees some motivation! I was a college graduate that was looking to advance, and it went unnoticed.

    I have been working at Steven Madden part-time

    Pros

    Amazing discount, great coworkers, learn a lot.

    Cons

    Management is a bit uptight. No praise when doing well. Only noticed when doing something wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Praise your employees! They'll work a lot harder if you do.

    I worked at Steven Madden full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, everybody is super friendly, and a relaxed environment but still functioning. There is no dress code (except for "wearing Steve Madden shoes") and you get to participate in the Steve Madden Music concerts and International photoshoots.

    Cons

    There really isn't too much room for creativity especially since it has to be approved by the higher ups, but you're always encouraged to try. Sometimes gets super busy but most of the time it's a consistent work load.
