EmployeeWorked in Distribution/sales at Sas Shoemakers in San Antonio, TX, TX at the time of review.

What I like

work/life balance

What I dislike

the amount of changes that happen almost weekly

Suggestions for improvement

listen to the employees, from the warehouse to the retail stores. we are the ones that deal w/ the customers everyday, we hear the feedback, we have suggestions and someone may want to hear them.

Work-Life Balance

very good work/life balance. communication is key

Overall compensation for your work

Currently underpaid when you compare the quality of shoes we sell and the type of care we take with our customers with an employee at Bill Miller's making $13-15 an hr to sell a brisket sandwich they threw together in 3 seconds. From the moment the customer walks in until we walk them out we are dedicated to inform, try on, educate them on the need for sundries, etc and their purchase is more then I make in a week.

Workplace Safety

other than the amount of shoes in the store sometimes interfering with our ability to work

Teamwork

Our staff works great together!

Support from management

in store management is great, dm and upper management are a little harder to please

Challenging Work

depending on the customer, some sales can be challenging

Freedom to work independently

we are left alone for long durations at times and it can be trying but for the most part, it's tolerable.
