    I worked at Stride Rite full-time

    Pros

    You get to work with kids all day, so its a fun environment most of the time

    Cons

    The company would never let us schedule enough associates for larger sales and events, and the pay was low for their actual expectations

    Advice to Management

    I never had any issues with my managers, the issues came from higher up than them. District managers that travel from other states once or twice a year should listen to the managers that are running the stores, as they see the actual day to day operations.

    Pros

    Great co workers, pretty flexible scheduling for the employees, everyone who works there currently pretty much went out of their way to help each other out and made the environment more enjoyable when there were really horrible customers

    Cons

    Honestly the store manager here won't do anything for her employees. She plays down any work injuries so that it doesn't go up to corporate. On top of that, there are numerous promises to raise pay wages and even after calling corporate several times nothing was resolved. The store manager promotes workers to key holders and doesn't give them any work benefits or a pay raise. This company is ridiculous and the store manager is just covering her own rear. Don't go to work here at all!!!

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to pay closer attention to your store managers that you hire. Who actually makes someone a key holder with no benefits. That's not fair to the employees and it leaves the company wide open for a lawsuit. Too bad wolverine doesn't even know what's going on in their own stores.
