Assistant Merchandising Manager (Former Employee), Portland OregonSeptember 24, 2013
Pros: discounts, bonuses
Cons: weekends, nights
I learned to treat all employees the same and if everyone knew all the basics of being a manager they would feel more comfortable in their position and room to grow.
Hardest part about my job was scheduling, but i learned to get past all the requests and changes.
The most enjoyable part was working with customers, i like learning where they come from – more... and what they are looking for. – less

Fun place to work, great atmosphere
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLSeptember 16, 2013
Pros: great employee discount
Cons: no advancement, low pay
A designer show warehouse in a great town center mall. Co-workers and management work well together. Fun working atmosphere with high morale. Teamwork very important to maintain store. But, this is a part-time position that offers no advancement and little pay.

Good place to work
Retail associate - DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MISeptember 8, 2013
Pros: store discount
Cons: short breaks, unstable schedule, no advancement opportunities, pay is pretty low
It's a nice work environment. Dealing with customers is the best part of the job. The schedule is very unpredictable and unstable. But if you are ok with that then it's fine. No PTO unless you are a manager because full time isn't available for regular associates. Great temporary job.

terrible
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), STATEN ISLAND, NYAugust 30, 2013
Cons: everything
HORRIBLE PLACE TO WORK. EVERYONE IS IN EACH OTHERS BUSINESS AND THE LOSS PREVENTION MANAGERS GOAL IS TO FIND ANY LITTLE THING TO FIRE ASSOCIATES THAT HAVE BEEN THERE FOR A WHILE. NO APPRECIATION FOR THEIR ASSOCIATES WHAT SO EVER. STAY AWAY.

Deadend job
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Glen Allen, VAAugust 26, 2013
Cons: no chance to advance from within
DSW tries to be a cheaper version of Nordstrom, and what they are is the penultimate retail job. You get no benefits, raises are miniscule, and there is NO chance to advance from inside the company. I worked there for 3 years, and during my time there I went through 12 store managers, and was never offered a management position, despite training the – more... managers as they came in. – less

It can be a really fun place to work with some cool people
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), Merrillville, INAugust 22, 2013
Pros: awesome sale on shoes.
Cons: move nowhere
If the right people are there it can be really fun and pretty easy. bringing out new shoes and taking back the old ones. the main thing is keeping the store clean while helping the customers find what they are looking for. what sucks is it felt impossible to move anywhere. you were always stuck at the bottom. but it was a cool second job with easy scheduling.

The Worse Place Ever To Work!
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Southfield, MichiganAugust 12, 2013
Pros: 30% discount
Cons: everything else!
I literally walked off this job!!!!!!! I have never done that! The customers are rude, The management staff has no respect for the associates, or customers. They hire a lot of people & barely have enough hours for the associates they already have! You this job was will drive all the way to work & when you get there they will tell you its too slow & – more... they don't have enough hours & they will send you back home. Most of my co- workers were nice, but the management is a bunch of backstabbers. The only thing I enjoyed about this job was the discount! DONT WASTE YOUR TIME!!!!!!!! – less
