    Pros

    District manager wants store managers and assistant managers to grow within the company. Great employee discount.

    Cons

    Location! It's hard to keep a full staff since we are located about 20-30 mins away from town. Benefits are not amazing and as a store manager you get the worst hours.

    Advice to Management

    Great people will stay loyal when you give them the right tools for success. More competitive pay and benefit packages would keep people more satisfied.

    I have been working at Skechers U.S.A. part-time

    Pros

    Employee discount is 50% off "X" amount of pairs per month.
    Pay is average.
    Scheduling is flexible.

    Cons

    No upward mobility even though you will be told that they like to promote from within. I should've realized this wasn't the case as I was hired directly into management.
    If you are anything higher than a floor supervisor you are not allowed to leave the store unless you have another manager or floor supervisor in the store, even if you are clocked out while on lunch.
    Expectations and requirements are set way too high if you don't have the proper staffing.
    You can work your butt off in order to help your store and other local stores and hardly get a thank you.
    Anything other than 1st Assistant and General Manager positions are considered part time, even if you work 40+ hours per week.
    They do not back up their employees or ask the employee's side when there is a customer service issue.

    ***Biggest Complaint***
    They do not offer benefits to ANYONE other than the General and 1st Assistant Managers.
    If you have a chronic illness that requires expensive medication monthly, DO NOT APPLY!

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying during the interview process about upward mobility.
    Help your employees not just your wallets.

    Company take store managers to an awesome meeting in california

    Advice to Management

    invest in your store managers, some get visit frequently some others not at all and feedback is critical to make progress, review what they get paid with similar companies and the gap will be visible so the turnover will be less

    Pros

    Great product, awesome staff, and good discount. A lot of training at this company. Really good job for college kids or just a first time job.

    Cons

    A lot of lifting and climbing ladders. Shipment would be heavy especially during seasons changing, so tons of new shoes to put out each week.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! It's nice to shop where the staff has product knowledge.
