Company Culture

Impossible Standards from Home Office.

Support from management

District Manager and Regional Manger were great to work for.

Internal Communication

The only Communication came from District Manager.

Gender Equality

If you work hard you can move up quickly regardless of gender or nationality.

Overall compensation for your work

Underpaid compared to other shoe retailers.

Work-Life Balance

No work life balance for Store Managers And District Manager. Store Managers expected to work 55+ hrs a week to keep labor cost down.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Do pay increases for all employees annually. Allow District Managers to decide who gets a raise. It should not have to go through people at home office who do not know how the store management and employees work. Better pay will result in a higher quality of employee and managers.

What I like about the company

My District Manager and the employee discount.

What I dislike about the company

Poor Communication from home office. The lack of a work life balance. And poor pay for the work expected.
