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

Pros

great atmosphere for the most part, middle management is uplifting yet upper management tends to be hidden away. always moving around and doing different tasks so there is never a dull moment.

Cons

the lack of ability to retain employees and lack of support and help from management when needed. No leadership within management makes it difficult to reach expectations set by them.

    Pros

    Associates are friendly, associate drama free, great pay, some really wonderful customers,

    Cons

    Next to nothing hours, crazy 4-5 hrs shifts, no benefits nor vaca time for pt associates who are very hard workers, not very understanding when it comes to your family, all they care about is the dsw family not yours not even if your kid is dying sick in the hospital bills piling up the ayer cuz u dont have ins through the company. Lets see what else, managers looking down upon you when you dont know something, when u make a mistake its the end of the world for them, super double standard about offers and rewards program, they treat you like ur an idiot after expecting you to be this super perfect person. Oh and then u have the super horrible customers who treat you like dirt but your expect to treat them as kings and queens HA!!

    Advice to Management

    Note: not everyone will sign up for the rewards program, and it SHOULD NOT be a HUGE deal and NOBODY is perfect not even you.
