Support from management

my manager is barely there, and only is to reprimand us. I received no proper training although i did receive proper scolding when I did things incorrectly.

Teamwork

we work together as a team because we all fear the same thing.

Freedom to work independently

there is only freedom because the manager does not care.

Internal Communication

corporate makes sure the managers and associates know what is expected, but further down the line, management does nothing to ensure that it happens, unless corporate pays a visit

Attitude towards older colleagues

the store is mostly teenagers looking for extra money, save for the manager. there is a very low power distance since to us, she is just another Skechers worker, working a dead-end job. except she gets paid more. she cares about her job no more than we do, though

Overall compensation for your work

no opportunity to become full-time for fear of having to pay proper benefits

Office / Work Environment

clean, but only if the manager tells us to do so

Environmental Friendliness

absolutely no recycling bin, no care for the environment

Work-Life Balance

flexible schedule, although i do dread going to work

Job Security

the manager does not care enough to fire anyone. it's not as if she has a plethora of employees to schedule from

Challenging Work

it is literally making customers feel good about what they are buying. nothing more, nothing less.

Inclusive / Diverse

it is diverse in that there are lots of minorities, but it is not literally diverse. the majority of my store is minorities

Suggestions for improvement

  • the manager should care more, do things when corporate does not breathe down her neck. also, the associates and store managers should stop coming to work high.

What I like about the company

the minimum wage paycheck i receive biweekly

What I dislike about the company

incentives, product, management, culture, associates.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Executive management should be more involved, especially in IT. IT was almost always at the end of the line for office space, new hire allocations, etc. Often felt like IT had little to no representation at the executive level.

What I like about the company

Flexible working hours. If you wanted to go home at noon, nobody cared as long as you could get your work done and be available if needed.

What I dislike about the company

Massive culture of nepotism stretching back decades. Members of “the Family” often can and do treat other employees with disrespect with zero consequence.

People tend to get ignored if they don’t aggressively stand up for themselves. Performance reviews and salary increases were few and far between.

Executive management tends to ignore problems, and shift blame. IT tends to be aloof, because it has no relationship with the rest of the business. Results in poor relationships between IT and other departments.

Teamwork

Team work from a corporate level is not there at all.

Internal Communication

They are getting better but still very in the past as far as technology, they just barely have upgraded stores to iPads but still rely heavily on fax machines......

Career Development

There is no path for development with this company, the so-so development program they have isn’t even a development program it’s more of check list for operations called an AOR (area of responsibilities)

Overall compensation for your work

I worked two years as a Store Manager without any raises. They expect to pay you the bare minimum while posting record sales for the year.

Office / Work Environment

The store teams are not appreciated by the executives and district/regional teams.

Work-Life Balance

The only reason there is any work like balance is because most of us in California are hourly, and there is no over time allowed.

Company Image

The product is amazing! And the brand could be great if the executives actually appreciated their hard working store teams.

Job Security

The company is a growing and expanding.

Challenging Work

Almost to challenging, and no support from corporate or upper management to help resolve issues, corporate adds to the problems if anything. Upper management just tells you to work faster and harder while we flood you with to much work, oh and we are cutting your payroll.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to be realistic in payroll expectations, I have worked in retail for years and understand that cutting payroll is important to the bottom line, but there has to be a balance and you can’t expect your store managers to work through lunch breaks with no other people working just to make a payroll %

What I like about the company

The product is amazing! And the customers are the best!

What I dislike about the company

There is no development with this company, and you might be willing to work hard if the executives at least appreciated the store teams.
