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

    Pros

    I have worked for Aerosoles for over 2 years now. The company culture is supportive and you feel like your voice is heard. Dress code started out having to wear all black but they updated it so you can show off your personal style. As Store Manager you are responsible for driving sales and KPI's (UPT, ADS, VIP and SVPH) Sales goals most of the time are reasonable and achievable.

    Cons

    Recruiting: Company doesn't have a lot of brand recognition so it makes it hard to hire good people.I was short staffed most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Advertise more! You need better brand recognition in all markets.

    Pros

    The store is small so there is not much to clean. All employees get to know each other very well.

    Cons

    You do not work on commission and get paid minimum wage. If you do not meet the high sales quotas they take you off the schedule.They never actually fire you they take you off the schedule for many weeks until you stop calling then will file the paperwork.I saw them do this to many employees.

    I worked at Aerosoles part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was my first job out of college and I really enjoyed working here. I was a sales associate for about 2 years and I met a lot of nice people during my time here. My coworkers became a work family and it made selling shoes to people a lot easier.
    Pros: Proper training (ie: Register, Shoe Collections, customer service etiquette)
    Personal growth (ie. learned how to confidently communicate with customers)
    Great work staff
    Rewards for achievements if company goals were met.

    Cons

    Cons
    - Little pay
    - A lot of staff turnover within company especially in corporate
    - Not a lot of room for advancement within the company.
    - Limited workload and no pay raise when given more responsibilities (ie. Doing returns/exchanges)

    Advice to Management

    Offer full-time sales associate positions. More incentives if company goals are met. More advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    You learn a lot about the product as well as the company.
    Customers are overall very personable.
    Great place to start out at.

    Cons

    Disrespectful Upper Management, Lack of professionalism, poor communication, low pay, little to no hours for part timers, no appreciation of anyone who actually does their job

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting people get away with whatever. Whether it's faking VIP customers, disrespect towards coworkers or customers, or the overall lack of retail management to begin with. You've lost so many hard working, dedicated people because of hiring people with no business being in a management position. Take care of your employees; especially the ones who actually do their job, love the company, and genuinely care about the customers.
