Pros

Meeting alot of great and loyal customers.

Cons

They have the worst human resources dept. ever!!! Complaints get swept under the carpet!

Advice to Management

Get a clue! Your shoes don't sell on their own! It's NOT all about $$$$$$ It's about thanking your staff for all their hard work. Instead of the neg comments from the DM's How about THANKS to the sales staff for making our company so profitable!!

    Pros

    Really fun atmosphere if you're in a store with good people. Pretty easy job. Pay is better than most retail. Very flexible scheduling - good for students, second jobs.

    Cons

    If you are not full time do not count on your hours. They often make cuts with little notice (from corporate level not store manager). They don't seem to care about their part time employees at all. It's very difficult to get a full time position as there are 2 per store max (store manager and assistant store manager). People who deserve these positions often get passed up for outsiders They often change their commission structure as well resulting in getting great pay one week and an unlivable wage the next. The commission and hour cuts are horrible. If going here part time do not depend on it for your sole source of income no matter how good it is when you start.

    Advice to Management

    take better care of your employees

    Pros

    bonuses, family days, casual dress code in corporate office, free drinks, the PARTIES!, meeting celebrities, the open bar at parties,

    Cons

    meetings almost never happen on time, you are lucky if people meet with you in person, fire drills, power outages, no close places to eat other than chinese, the scary music piped in the bathrooms and hallways

    Advice to Management

    skechers is no longer innovative, and there are many senior managers and midlevel managers that have been there over 10 years and needs to get rid of them so that innovation can occur the status quo at skechers is that if it has worked for 18+ years why change it? when things like the inventory system constantly breaks down, the company the inventory system is made out of no longer exists, there are better software and operating systems other fashion brands use.
