    I have been working at Happy Feet Plus full-time

    Pros

    Great discounts
    New CEO "let's hope changes are made"

    Cons

    Management ie: gm and regional
    Pay structure (it depends how much they like you or not, someone below you can make more)
    Very sales driven for numbers
    Average ticket 120 yet shoe care less than $10 counts against you.

    Advice to Management

    Pay structures should be the same for every job title not a secret between all of your employees, that causes a lot of animosity between people if it does get out. Relook categories and make it fair shoe repairs and shoe care products should not count against your average ticket. There is definitely not any type of punishment if your not working to your standards! The list can go on.

    Pros

    My co-workers are great, work together as a team, some decent perks. like free shoes if you win. sometimes flexible hours.

    Cons

    Very low pay $6.00 per hour, the General Manager micro-manages every aspect of your work. Simply takes all the fun out of selling. Let's face it this is shoe sales and not brain surgery. This is not a career job with respect to pay and job advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the hourly, this would do a lot for morale. Fire the General Manager, he claims to have increased sales, but this would have happened anyway. Sales have increase in the retail world by 5% this year

    Pros

    As an employee with Happy Feet, you do get 40% discount on the shoes there which is a very good perk. Also, the shoes that they carry are very comfortable and will definitely make your feet happy. The shoes they carry are absolutely amazing!

    Cons

    There is absolutely no growth or potential for upward movement whatsoever. I have been with the company now for quite awhile and haven't received a raise or even a performance review. I have been very unhappy working there. It would be a good job if you were in college looking for PT work or if you wanted to supplement your income. But if you are looking to build a career or work your way up the ladder, stay away from this company because it definitely will not happen.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of the Business Development Manager!! He is the reason why the company has changed and why employee morale is down the drain. The employees feel EXTREMELY pressured to sell and reach #'s. It is all a #'s game now. What ever happened to making the customers feeling welcome and happy?? It's like we are treating the customers as $$$ signs and not people!! That is the wrong way to approach it. Because of what's going on, I have lost all desire to sell and confidence in myself and the company. We have lost all faith and support in the company.
