  1. Great Company

    I worked at Tradehome Shoes

    Pros

    Great company to work for if you are in college or looking for experience in customer service.

    Cons

    If you are a store manager and/or manager trainee be prepared to work A LOT- if you work in a different sate from your family, you probably wont be able to take off

    Advice to Management

    More so advice to the district managers, don't be over pushy when it comes to assisting sales associates with sales.

    Pros

    Great place to get sales experience. Wonderful products.

    Great learning program 3point5.com that really helped me gain product knowledge and sound professional in sales. I also received 70% off new Asics and Ecco's through the training program.

    Cons

    Low pay, even with sales, and high turnover.
    My assistant manager always spoke about getting high and drinking; thought this may not reflect every store, it was a poor reflection for ours in Layton, UT.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more money in employee's; you'll get better ones that will stay with the company.

    Pros

    The people who work there become your family, your friends, and basically your life. They are some of the best around, as Tradehome attempts to hire the best people for sales. The job itself is fun, and the customers are generally nice.

    Cons

    Forward mobility seems to be Manager, but no further. Also, there is no public advertising or anything of that nature. They do everything by word of mouth. While it is cool that they can maintain a business at that level, it is ridiculous to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Start advertising. Its 2015 for God's sakes. Also, the ability to pay your people without taking away from the manager's pay would always be nice.

    Pros

    Customer service is hard to find in many industries. They teach you how to.

    Cons

    One location until promoted, work can become monotonous

    Advice to Management

    Check in with your employees to understand future changes

    Pros

    It will teach you to be an adequate and self reliant team member. Develops teamwork, and sales skills.

    Very strict sales approach. Nothing to be faltered with.

    Make it a little more fun of an atmosphere.

    Pros

    They like to build from within. Yearly bonuses, good benefits, profit sharing, feels like a big family most times.

    Cons

    They are very cheap. They like to micromanage. They seem to be stuck on their old-school ways of doing things & make changes for the future. If you are good at ass-kissing you will seem to be more liked and go further than you should. There is zero marketing & hardly have a social network presence. We need to start sending out promotions to our customers since we are supposed to be known for our outstanding customer service.....

    Advice to Management

    Grow with the times and don't be afraid to make big changes every once in awhile. And stop acting like Tradehome is Mom & Pop business. We are a medium size business. There are over 100 locations in the US. Let's start making Tradehome a well known name. We are missing out on A LOT OF MONEY.

    Pros

    Good pay good atmosphere. Wonderful customers and good employee discount. Full control of your store and a lot of freedom.

    Cons

    There are no con's for me. You get out what you put in. A lot of opportunities for advancement. Health care went up but that's it.


  11. Customer service always comes first.

    Pros

    Personnel are great to work with, management is very supportive and accommodating to college schedules, company has options to better yourself through management positions.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be boring/tedious work if customers are not in the mall/store.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the stores surrounding Tradehome. When there are 7 other shoe stores within walking distance with lower prices, numbers aren't going to look so great.
