    I worked at Clarks part-time

    Pros

    They have great and flexible hours and the shifts are not too long there at all but still long enough to make some money.

    Cons

    The management provides little benefits, and they can sometimes be rude and not very nice to new staffers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on new sales people because it is easy for them to forget about the new people and support the profitable sales people.

    Very nice people to work for. Easy to move up there too because they rely on experience and the pay is good as well.

    Sometimes there is difficult customers pr maybe the boss isn't jiving with you but other than that its still a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe re think when certain stores are open and closed bc some stores just aren't busy enough to be open 12 hours a day.

    I worked at Clarks full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great discounts
    Good communication with district/regional managers

    Cons

    Long hours in a failing industry. The culture has been destroyed, they used to recognize the employees, now they are just numbers in a system. The pay structure was decent at best, and now it's just terrible. In many stores there are outside influences that make it impossible to hit LY, so essentially these managers just took a pay cut with no opportunity to make it back.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your outlets, the retail side is dying a slow painful death. Stop making your managers suffer.

    I worked at Clarks part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    50% off shoes including sales

    if staffed with the right people, its fun on the weekends

    weekly pay

    Cons

    THEY DO NOT WANT TO PAY YOU AND THE PEOPLE IN THE PAYROLL DEPARTMENT DO NOT KNOW OR WANT TO DO THEIR JOBS CORRECTLY!!!

    first i thought they were going to put it into one big check but they didn't.
    i didn't get my check until 3 weeks after and it was still not for the correct number of hours because it was for my last week and they still owed me for the week before and i didn't get that until the a week later...

    they dont promote from within and no bonus's or quality incentives are offered.

    more importantly, no comission.

    Advice to Management

    DO YOUR JOBS BETTER!!!
