    I have been working at Genesco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great trainers, great facilities and easy to get the hang of. Working here is a lot of fun. The supervisors are always there to help you.

    Cons

    The way they handle absences and tardies. They work off of a point system, so if you are absent that day and you call the employee hotline then you earn a point. As new hire you can only obtain 1 point a month.

    Advice to Management

    Better way to call about absences and tardies

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Genesco (Nashville, TN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    When I got there for my interview the front desk security guard gave me a badge and told me to go the the 6th floor. I went up and found it with the help of one of my friends that already worked there. It was very nice, everyone smiled and the interview process did not take long. Maybe 10 minutes and I got to pick my schedule and was hired on the spot.
