    I have been working at Payless ShoeSource full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling and great discount. Weekly pay and no uniforms! Who doesn't like to work with shoes all day?

    Cons

    A lot to do in very little time while helping customers with almost no assistance

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Coon Rapids, MN
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Payless ShoeSource (Coon Rapids, MN) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied and got a call two hours later, set up an interview for the next day. It was a very easy process and the manger was nice. Basic questions asked and had to pretend the manager was a customer and help her. Pay was great and hours were great, only reason I didn't accept was being a young female alone in the store made me uncomfortable.
