    I worked at Caleres full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Store level management great to work with.

    Cons

    Store managers get pushed around by their boss. Hired as full time and get not getting even part time hours.

    Advice to Management

    Check if the corporate level managers are worth the pay. See if the employees can make their living with 20 hours as full time.

    I have been working at Caleres full-time

    Pros

    The people at the company are great. These are people that will truly care about you as a person.

    Cons

    The leadership can get very political. Not the best at hiring candidates because they don't understand what they are hiring for. Company doesn't have the best perks.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people.

    Up and coming brand. The footwear was fun to style and wear at times...

    No hours for extra bodies on the sales floor
    Lack of organization or consistency within scheduling

    Advice to Management

    Take into consideration the associates working within your stores.
    Take action on any of the problems happening & don't just try to sweep it under the rug.
    Don't string along your associates about possible growth within the company & not follow through.
    Communication is key!

    I have been working at Caleres full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A little different every day, small team to work with, intimate customer interaction, paid holidays, flexible scheduling, a lot of responsibility to gain experience.

    Cons

    Terrible help from corporate, very lacking in IT, pay is low, payroll decided on uncontrollable metrics. Payroll so low we sometimes have single coverage. Tasks and sales impossible to complete with how little payroll we have.

    Advice to Management

    Think about your employees. They have ends to meet, and we can't control sales, but you can control if we make enough to make a living.

    I worked at Caleres full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, good learning experience. Other associates are very helpful and willing to help/teach/mentor.

    Cons

    Long hours expected, Management on the director level varies from the best boss I've ever had to the worst boss I've ever had. Decisions are made rashly.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your associates because they are there to help make the big picture happen too!
