    I worked at Skechers U.S.A. full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility, immediate staff was amazing. Great employee discount and even friends and family. Easy systems to learn Kronos, apropos.

    Cons

    Expected labor vs hours(wages) nearly impossible, DM had to always give final approval to hire pt associates made me feel incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    If you have a manager allow them to do the job they were hired to do. Consider the actual labor and task expectations before assuming it's possible to complete with bare minimum hours.

    I have been working at Skechers U.S.A. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun working environment where it seems as though the company really does care about your growth and development. Pay is decent for the workload. Employee discount is amazing. Free pair of shoes for getting hired on. Flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Warehouse employees are asked to wear uniforms or purchase the brands apparel instead of being able to wear trendy clothes just as the other stores do. There isn't enough communication between corprate management and stores.

    Advice to Management

    It seems like there are too many stores for corporate managers and in turn some stores do not get much attention/ feedback. It would be really nice if warehouse stores could be able to wear street clothes to better show that shoes can be worn with so many different and trendy outfits.

    I have been working at Skechers U.S.A.

    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.

    I have been working at Skechers U.S.A. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits after 5 years. Employee discount is 50% off Company take store managers to an awesome meeting in california

    Cons

    Paid is was too low DMs restrict vacation time Stores struggle getting shoes or get over capacity

    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
