We definitely seem to do better employing more mature people. Went thru 3 previous employees very quickly that were young.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better availability in reducing overstock by sending back discontinued colors or styles of shoes.

What I like about the company

Good support from Corp. Bonuses on occasion!

What I dislike about the company

Not enough raises. Have worker here 6 yrs. and make the same as a brand new employee.

Company response

San Antonio Shoemakers appreciates all of our employees regardless of age. We have the good fortune of retaining some of our employees from the earliest days of the company and have many who have proudly served for 20 to 30 years or more. Currently, SAS will match up to $7.50 per week in 401k contributions, and we are actively seeking new ways to improve our 401k offerings to employees.

Employee safety is of our utmost concern. We have a number of safety policies and procedures in place in our retail stores designed to ensure that our employees are not at risk for harm and are able to work while maintaining their health and comfort.

Suggestions for improvement

  • At least give employees yearly raises.

What I like about the company

Operating hours are ok.

What I dislike about the company

They do not give raises. When they do, it’s only to the stores that make more money. Not based of individual performance.

Support from management

set goals but without consideration of employees, when management don't learn the jobs they are trying to change
first. They make changes for the better so they say but at the end its the blind leading the blind

Teamwork

there is no team work, work is not distributed equally
it's like we are in school (pets)

Freedom to work independently

new management comes in and you are not doing your job to there expectations but you have been with the company for years and they are new with SAS so they pick and pick

Attitude towards older colleagues

i don't think so, but again it's management new employees make more money, miss a lot of work and we have to train them, is it because we are older? but yet they get paid more and get the easy work.

Overall compensation for your work

Nope, we are doing 2 and 3 jobs and get paid for one, is it because we are older? also we only get 2 weeks of PTO, after 30 something years

Inclusive / Diverse

the company, but not your supervisors, that is the problem

Suggestions for improvement

  • do not send a new manager into a department without him or her getting some training for the position, they should learn everything about a department, have upper management train them, before they take over so they know what we are talking about when we need help.

What I like about the company

hours, distance from my home and it's Monday-Friday

What I dislike about the company

Management not knowing what they are doing and not trying to learn, management not treating employees equal and not taking time to listen
