    I worked at Journeys full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company and fun atmosphere! The company sets you up for success. If you work hard and are consistent you will get promotions quickly. The Atlanta DM Todd is the best and really cares about his team!

    Cons

    Be prepared to work 6 days and be understaffed due to hours shortages. High theft from employees so you always have to be a loss prevention manager as well.

    Advice to Management

    Work hard and show your boss and team that you are the hardest working employee in the store. Treat your store like its yours!

    I worked at Journeys part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Journeys is 1, 40 percent off all shoes, 2, co-workers were amazing

    Cons

    I hated my manager so much, she only cared about getting her bonuses and working us like slaves. $10.50 an hour was not cutting it

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you should get your lazy butt up and actually lift a finger and stop complaining if you aren't doing anything to help.

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

    Pros

    It's a lot of fun when you're helping customers.

    Cons

    Don't ever expect a straight answer about your career opportunities. I was told many times one thing was going to happen and something totally different happened and the time frame constantly changed. They don't pay Store Managers a livable wage.

    Advice to Management

    Stop misleading your employees with false promises. Pay your managers what they deserve for the work they put in!

    Pros

    Discount, working with happy customers

    Cons

    Management constantly switching, bad choices for management, put out schedule the week of. Left after being there for a year because I was getting 4 hours/week

    Advice to Management

    When promoting from within, ask the sales associates how they like their boss. Oh and don't hire people who are going to steal money out of the drawer and then try to blame it on others.
