I worked at Clarks full-time
Pay was competitive at the time of hire. A very respectable benefits package (low premiums and comprehensive coverage with low monthly out of pocket). Fairly High Degree of Autonomy.
Limited opportunity for growth. After reaching the level of store manager employees are encouraged to take on increasing numbers of responsibilities with a tacit promise of eventual promotion. Actual promotions or raises were, in practice, extremely rare. The bonus structure made it extremely difficult to collect bonuses.
Advice to Management
Engage your store managers in conversations about their futures, and create a structure in which a manager can feel they are making progress. Recognize years of service to the company with something more significant than a mass email.
I applied online. I interviewed at Clarks.
I responded to an ad I saw on the ClarksUSA website, and they responded to me within a couple of days. I was asked to meet for an interview the following day. The interview was very relaxed, and both very nice and friendly.
