    I worked at Shi by Journeys full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. My DM was amazing. Pretty straight forward place to work. Low stress.

    Cons

    Terrible pay. I was lucky to make minimum wage for a 40-50 hour work week as a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management was awesome, but the pay was far too low to stay at that company. This includes journeys.

    I worked at Shi by Journeys part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    working at journeys from she helped me a lot with talking to people, opening up to people, being there was all about making sales for shoes. although I am not a sales person the job really helped me out with my shyness.

    Cons

    in order to sell a client an item. you have to do whatever it takes to to convince them that what you are selling is the best item yet. I had no problem with selling but I can tell when a client would get annoyed and I hated that feeling. It made me and the custumor feel both uncomfortable. my manager would yell at me if I didn't keep talking to the customer or persuade the client more and more.

    Advice to Management

    my advice to the management at journeys is to leave a customer alone when they start feeling uncomfortable

    Pros

    being able to put a management position on my resume

    Cons

    everything. 58 hour work weeks, salary ended up at around 7 $ an hour, Unable to call in sick, when you're scheduled alone you're unable to use the bathroom or do anything that requires leaving the floor for several hours.

    Advice to Management

    managers should only have to work 4-45 hours a week. Not 60 +. If you want the store to be my entire life, PAY MORE.
