I have been working at Walking Company Holdings full-time (Less than a year)
Great company to work for. Great atmosphere. Very in depth training process. Upper management really cares about stores individually and offers great support when needed. Company offers all the tools needed to know and understand the buisness which in turn helps you to be successful. From a customer standpoint it's great to see how you can truly change someone's life with fitting them for the right orthodics and shoes. Having the ability to customize shoe support for a customer using the foot scanner is really cool. Like any company who has commission, pay is up and down but with the proper understanding and knowledge during training you can really earn a lot of extra money in commission
Perhaps should consider remodeling older stores.
Advice to Management
Continue to treat those on a store level with the openess you do and continue to always offer support. Seeing the support we get from those all the way up on a corporate level is refreshing and not something you see very often in the retail world these days.
I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Walking Company Holdings (Farmington, CT) in November 2016.
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.
