What’s unique about our company?

I found a “home” with Caleres. I started as a part-time Associate and never left. I’ve worked in multiple stores and lived in multiple cities. I’ve never felt like just a number, or just one Associate. From hourly Associate to Store Manager to DSM, I’ve always known I’m a part of something bigger.

We have many Associates who leave and come back to us—because they love the people and they love what they do. We don’t just hire people who are great with our customers and who drive results—we make sure they’re truly a great fit for our company.

What advice do you have for someone interested in working for us?

Work hard—that’s how you succeed. If you want it, it’s there. Don’t only prove to us that you can do the job. Prove to us that you’re passionate about being a part of a diverse team that drives results by inspiring others around you.
