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

Pros

Good work experience especially those looking for their first job
Flexible hours during peak
Most of the customers are very nice and appreciate your help

Cons

Unrealistic sales goals some days
Customers will sometimes make a big fuss over not getting something for an extra discount
Almost impossible to get promoted to full time
A LOT of pressure on the associates to make sales goals and get sign ups for the rewards program
Pressuring customers who do not want to be a rewards member for whatever reason

Advice to Management

Actually talk to every associate and figure out from their view point what needs to change in the way each store is ran. Also, appreciate however many people are signed up to be a rewards member and not focus on how many choose not to for their own personal reasons

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

    Pros

    Discount was good. It was fun interacting with the customers. The 4 hour shifts were a perfect length since you were on your feet the whole time.

    Cons

    The managers weren't consistent. They would have different rules for different people. I didn't quit nor was I fired. After having to take off at the last minute due to a family emergency, they stopped putting me on the schedule. I called several times to speak to my managers but they gave me the run around and kept telling me to call again in a few days and speak to another manager.
