    I have been working at Payless ShoeSource full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I really like my job it was challenging, fast past, worked with all levels of the organizations. Benefits were good, work, life and balance was promoted.

    Cons

    The company could not meet the needs of at home shoppers. Management could not grasp the idea that our customers were changing they were buying on line rather than the store

    Advice to Management

    Management should not listen to others on making shanges

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Payless ShoeSource (Wichita Falls, TX).

    After applying for the position I was then called in for a interview not long after from the stores manager. The interview was short; I would say under 15 minutes.
