    I worked at DSW part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly work environment and management that took steps to check in to see how you’re progressing and make sure that you’re happy. Definitely saw opportunities to move up if you show interest and work hard.

    Cons

    Management requiring us to keep checking on customers even though it clearly annoyed most customers or made them uncomfortable. I think they did away with this “rule” a year or so after I left.

    For a minimum wage job the interview process was pretty simple. They went over the company's work environment, what employees are trained to (such as sales, cashier, freight). They also required a minimum age requirement of 18. No degree requirements.
