    Pros

    I loved working with payless shoes it was a great experience

    Cons

    We were a pop up store so all the boxes of shoes were sitting on the floor and very hard to clean up at the end of the night

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Payless ShoeSource (Topeka, KS) in May 2011.

    Interview

    One on one interviews with the Data Center Production Control and Operations Director (there was no department manager at the time) and two of the shift supervisors, all back to back and a phone interview with another shift supervisor (a fourth shift supervisor position was open).

    Interview Questions

    • Typical questions about my experience, how I got along with co-workers and management in the past, how I handled difficult situations.   3 Answers

    Negotiation

    I negotiated the hourly pay up by 75 cents an hour. Also got two weeks vacation annually (pro-rated).
