No opinion of CEO

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!!

    Disapproves of CEO

    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

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good Pay (sometimes), If you like the shoes good discount, international chain (can relocate if you needed to),

    Cons

    Contradicting Memos, Weak Middle Management, Completely Sales Driven (There is nothing in place to keep morale up), Terrible Secret Shop program in place, Near impossible to advance unless you stay for 2+ years, Do not look for advice within the store to improve sales, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Secret Shops dont work and are faulty, not to mention a terrible way of evaluating performance and promotions. Try to care more about your employees. Also, try to make a better product, shoes (in same style, color) dont look the same. Eye lits rarely match up on the shoes, the shoes are often faded, and they are just terribly uncomfortable.
