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

    Pros

    They gave a nice discount.

    Cons

    Commission pay scale can result in under minimum wage paychecks. Expect all employees to hump the customers leg until the buy every shoe in the store. Most stores are not allowed three key holders which results in regular open to close shifts and single day off every week. This also means if anyone need a week of vacation the other manager has to work upwards of 80 hours.
