    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Valencia, CA

    I have been working at Steven Madden full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Steve Madden is a great corporation to work for. There is a lot of room to grow and develop in your career or as a person. They are interested in their employee's well-being.

    Cons

    The one and only con for me is the scheduling. In retail you will have days you work nights past 5pm, and it is mandatory for a full-time employee to work on the weekends. On top of that, you wont have a set schedule as every week the schedules tend to fluctuate.

    I have been working at Steven Madden full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Growth opportunities for those who work hard. Laid back environment. Teaches you to become a great salesperson and how to execute great customer service. Multi-faceted job responsibilities.

    Cons

    I'm quite optimistic about this brand. There aren't any cons.

    Advice to Management

    The product each store receives could use more attentiveness. The company overall needs better people to fill the buyer positions in order to have control over the store's value and what attracts clientele.
