    I worked at Walking Company Holdings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    With a hybrid salary(or hourly) plus commission you can make decent money at certain stores.

    Cons

    "car salesman" like sales training approach. 1-year vacation probationary period for managers, Store Managers MUST work 6 day weeks after Black Friday. Low base salary for Store Managers. Upper management keeps most of the power from the store manager. Upper management unsure about new brand management (Abeo).

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the rewards program, retool selling practices, attract a younger demographic

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Walking Company Holdings (Farmington, CT) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional and disorganized from start to finish. They lost all my paperwork and application and made me fill out a new one on the spot. When I asked for clarification on certain questions which didn't even make sense, the manager told me to just skip over them. Then they didn't even know my correct name or its spelling. The interviewing manager was extremely young, inexperienced, and unprofessional. They offered me the job bud I decided not to accept.
