Pros

You always hear companies say "customer service comes first". With Clarks, this really is the case.

Cons

People who work in an outlet are treated differently from full priced stores. There is some sort of ridiculous segregation. It has something to do with customer service, which is silly, outlets are required to offer the same amount of customer service. Outlets also bring in more money than most full prices stores!

    I have been working at Clarks full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Clarks has fantastic benefits and compensation. Many managers work on commission, either based on individual sales, or a percent from the total sales volume of the store. Being compensated based on how well you do your job can be a little intimidating at first, but if you work hard, and use the training tools that are easily available, you'll be very successful! As a store manager, you'll have close contact with your District Manager who is a great resource for tough questions. If you are relocatable, there are lots of opportunities for you! Clarks really invests in their employees. It's refreshing!

    Cons

    The 44 hour work week can be a little daunting, but isn't as bad as some other retail companies require. There are really no raises in the retail environment. The only way to get a raise is to move stores, get promoted, or beat your sales goal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your ground troops. There is a new focus on really listening to the retail store managers and making changes based on what they need in order to do their jobs better. This is a fantastic direction to take in the ever-changing retail environment!
