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

Pros

Fun staff and positive work environment. Wonderful managers work within availability and provide training needed to progress. 30-40% employee discount.

Cons

Customer service takes the backseat to maintaining the cleanliness of sales floor. Massive multi-tasking: cash register, rewards card, service, recovering, stocking. No significant benefits associated with accomplishing these tasks.

Advice to Management

Closing is tough when no one has really been cleaning up throughout the day. Expectations are often unreasonable in this regard, especially in closing Mens.

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

    Pros

    depending on the manager you can get a decent amount of hours, flexible, easy job.

    Cons

    point system is stupid, lack of respect from managers

    Advice to Management

    yes we understand the point system but people get sick its hard to find someone to take your shift if you are sick.. instead of 7 being the max it should at least be 10 because it can quickly build up due to last minute fall-backs
