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

    Pros

    Well, let's see. There's a 30% discount and the dress code is lenient.

    Cons

    Think about it. I mean really think. If you get hired in as a manager or a full-time associate, is this the company in which you want to invest your skills? Your talents? Your time? Is this the place you want to spend a majority of your waking hours, slowly pacing the same isles, moving boxes of shoes from one spot to another, wearing a lanyard name tag and being forced to call everyone you come into contact with a "shoe-lover"?

    Do you want to be encouraged to micro-manage your employees, or be more concerned with "walkie communication" than building actual relationships with your customers? Do you want to even wear a walkie-talkie all day?

    Of course you don't.

    I could tell you about my personal experience during my tenure at dsw. I could talk about being repeatedly let down and lied to by upper management, or I could talk about a concerning lack of autonomy, or managers who delight in finger pointing and throwing associates under the bus. But that might not be your experience.

    I will, however, tell you this. DSW is, when all is said and done, still just a shoe store. As much as the company tries to be "America's Favorite Place to Work", it's a losing battle. At the end of the day, it's just a regular, tedious, soul-crushingly boring shoe store. Nothing more.

    Do you have a long-held aspiration to try something new or be something great, but it seems too risky? Do that. Don't settle for this. We're better than this.
