    Pros

    As a sales associate I do not feel the need to pressure customers into buying shoes. We have sales goals but they are easily attainable

    Cons

    Low benefits and incentives means it's hard to be enthused by your job. Some unfair pressure in keeping up to par on sales

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more incentive to sell the product. If you want to push product out the door you need associates on your side

    Great company to work for- discounts and movement across brands opens up many potential career paths.

    Cons

    Very few, if any at all!

    Pros

    This place has good brands, good people and a great company culture. I love the work ethic and how everyone is relaxed and casual.

    Cons

    VISA sponsorship for internationals seems to be a problem and it looks like it's not something that happens commonly. Meh..

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Wolverine Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Wolverine has grown a ton, especially in the last few years. That leads to a lot of opportunity and growth potential for employees. And given the right team and management can mean some very fulfilling and rewarding opportunities.

    Cons

    Wolverine has grown a ton, especially in the last few years. That can lead to a lot more responsibilities, hours worked, and duties. When not on the right team or working for the right management group, it can often go unnoticed and unrewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote people just because they've worked there a long time and don't hesitate to reward those who step up and show themselves deserving.

    Pros

    Good benefits, some managers are great in certain divisions. Lot of flexibility in field sales.

    Struggling to find future identity in product lines. Too much corporate shuffling and bureaucracy at times.

    Listen to field reps, take suggestions. Make career growth opportunities more transparent.
