I have been working at DSW part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Employee discount was huge
Love the people I work with, except one or two but I rarely work with them
Ops and Merchandising managers are amazing
Give extra hours if you want/need them
District manager is amazing and really actually gives a darn about the associates

Cons

Store manager has really bad mood swings
When rewards sign-ups are down, management stresses out, stressing out the employees

Advice to Management

Don't pressure associates and cashiers to be so on top of rewards. There are bad days, and we do the best we can.

    Pros

    It's great for undergrad students, they give short shifts, work isn't hard at all, employee discount is decent.

    Cons

    Work politics, it's not that fun to work there a lot of the time, lots of housekeeping and picking up after customers.

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

    Pros

    The employee discounts were great.
    Loved my coworkers. They were phenomenal people.
    Absolutely loved TWO of my merchandising managers. Great attitude and easy going, which made employees stress-free and the work day better.

    Cons

    Need better management. The store manager didn't know how to put together schedules properly, which caused workers to have the exact same awful shifts for weeks.
    Need longer hours. 4 hours a shift for part time is ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Find better store management.
