    I have been working at Famous Footwear full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - 30% off with employee discount
    - flexible (great for students)
    - great coworkers
    - simple job
    - very rewarding when you help a customer find the perfect shoe

    Cons

    - the shifts change every week

    Advice to Management

    Let employees have consistent shifts every week so that they can plan their work around their lives and not their lives around their work.

    I have been working at Famous Footwear part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    30% discount. Which is great if you love shoes and always buying them, like I do. Sometimes I hear they do 40% discount for employees.
    Excellent coworkers, managers and customers. We are one big family.
    It is great to come in every day and help customers find the perfect pair of shoes.
    Great work-life balance. Will work with you on scheduling.

    Cons

    It can be challenging at times, still retail. However, if you put in the work the benefits are great.

    I have been working at Famous Footwear part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good environment, friendly coworkers, low impact/stress

    Cons

    Pressure to sale accessories you don't necessarily like. For me, this was insoles. I wasn't a fan of the Sofsole insoles so i didn't like selling them to customers. Other than that the hot times of the year (back to school and end of year holidays) weren't the best in terms of store cleanliness but it's retail so that's expected.
