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

    Pros

    Laid back work atmosphere with a strong family environment. They offer plenty of minor incentives such as free food, potential time off, and additional holidays. Company values are deeply family rooted so they also are more understanding than most companies about injuries, family emergencies, and health concerns.

    Cons

    The company is a bit old school. Industry standards and best practices are generally not followed or are not yet fully established at the company. Due to the company structure, growth opportunities are not available in all areas of the company. Additionally, certain positions that would be common place in other companies may not even be established due to the company's structure.

    Advice to Management

    Management should look for company growth opportunities as well as implement more industry standards / best practices throughout the company.

    Pros

    Best company I have work for. I value everything the company has provided, it has been a great learning experience. No one said it will be easy, I had to work for it. I don’t picture myself working for another company.

    Cons

    Need more technology to get caught up with other retailers. Old timers attitude is keeping the company from growing even more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the company.

    Pros

    What Pros..... people who work there are some of the nicest people around, not corporate people real workers not pretend workers

    Cons

    Oh where to start! Pay is awful offering people $8-9 hourly , who can live on that? Offering people bonuses they can never hit, because lack of product, sizes, or efficient marketing, is a joke. $15 off a pair of shoes are not a discount its called tax free, because that is all it covers, that was a great deal when shoes cost less, but that's been raised 3 times in the last year. YES your customers noticed and telling them cost go up is not working and that is why they are not buying. Quality has dropped and that's why the returns are so much higher. Customers are having defects left and right. We are taking everything back because they don't want complaints and stores are blamed when customers are mad. People working in the Corporate office have no clue what is happening in the stores or what we are dealing with daily. They create polices but then break them when its convenient. EX(must have a safety belt on a ladder but then don't provide the belt) unfortunately this list can go onononononononononononononononon but you get it right? They never will till the doors close. Employees are just worker drones and if you don't care about the company you can last but you have a brain you must move on they don't want you. They refuse to listen to people telling them what the issues are and give ideas, but if it's not there idea it's not good. all the good people with options leave and the ones who stay "like me" don't have the option to leave, I need my job! I just hope my job will still here til I can retire, but I'm scared were going to go under because the people up top, haven't a clue

    Advice to Management

    Pretend your america saying "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN" that's how your employees feel about SAS, MAKE US GREAT AGAIN, before it's too late, if it is not to late already. When you respond take thought because the generic remarks are corporate bull and tells me you only read and hear what you want and don't care what these reviews say

    Pros

    There was a time when this company could boast having the most comfortable shoes in the world...and they'd have been correct! Used to uphold quality over quantity above anything else.

    Cons

    Upper management has lost their way and is currently destroying what made SAS different. People who never worked a store are making decisions to turn on the very customers that pay their salary.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the "shoe source" mob mentality before it's too late. You CAN still turn it around. I bet your customers would return if you did.
