    I worked at Aldo part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The fast paced environment
    Great team
    50% off employee discount
    Ability to move in roles e.g Storefront to Stock
    Support from management

    Cons

    Minimum wage $9 in TN
    Small stores mean less hours available
    Shoe prices are high so with the minimum wage you aren't actually able to reap the full benefit of 50%

    Advice to Management

    Increase wages or add more employee incentives and rewards

    Pros

    great discount, cute shoes and hand bags

    Cons

    could be a bit slow

    Advice to Management

    Our district manager constantly compared our sales to stores in more Metro areas in the district. Even though our sales were better in comparison she still didn't seem to grasp that there was no way we would ever make as much as our counterparts at other stores.

    Pros

    Discount is 50 percent off, you get some flexibility with schedules, and you get paid vacation after your first year

    Cons

    Methods of how to push are a little extreme , having my job on the line and my fellow employees because they aren't selling the cleaning products for shoes is a bit much.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find other ways to push show care so that you don't lose employees because a customer isn't going to buy it every time they come in.
