Logistics/Sales associate/Cashier (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAAugust 13, 2014
a typical day at work would be to clock in clean up my stock room then pass my time on the sales floor organizing, helping customers until the truck arrives. once the truck arrives i have to unload and make sure everything was accountable in the in-coming and out-going freight. once i was done that i had the option to stay or go home.

Everything dependent on management at your location.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), MassachusettsJune 12, 2014
Some opportunities for advancement. Long hours. Hard work. Can be bearable depending on management. Many managers are incompetent at their jobs.

Multi-Store Manager (Current Employee), Pasadena, MDApril 16, 2014
Find the company to be very backwards and does not motivate the hard working but more of the brown nosers.

Cashier & stock person (Former Employee), Olean, NyApril 2, 2014
Pros: working around kids
Cons: short breaks
One thing that always needed to be done at work is our shipment. It needed to be put out in a timely and fashionably manor. The management was poor when it came to helping us with things that we didn't know or when it came to even being able to socialize. The hardest part of the job was dealing with customers who didn't know what they wanted and every – more... suggestion you gave them they didn't like. The most enjoyable part of my job was dealing with sports equipment everyday. – less

Interaction with the public
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Shelton, CTMarch 18, 2014
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: part time
Daily interaction with customers and coworkers while being able to attend to the needs of the customer. Being able to keep the store clean and presentable. I have learned how to multitask in the most effective way possible when needed. I learned how to maintain inventory of the store and how to process orders on a daily bases.

Productive and fun customer service job
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), SkowheganMarch 12, 2014
This job provides a great work atmosphere, and great training for anyone looking to go into sales. The co-workers are all personable and very friendly. As a manager we pride ourselves on using great training tools, and always providing a fun, cooperative, and competitive work atmosphere. Overall, it is a laid back job, but sometimes merchandising could – more... be quite challenging due to the size of the store. – less

Great into company to retail, great customer service
Store Manager (Former Employee), Milford, PAFebruary 20, 2014
Pros: laid back atmosphere, good benefits, fun place
Cons: low pay
On a typical work day, you balance between customer service and keeping the store looking neat. You learn all about helping customers , adding to the sale, representing the company well. The challenge was balancing customer service and side projects, especially in peak hours with minimal staff on. My staff was great, and it was a great place to work.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Burlington, VTJanuary 19, 2014
The managers respected their employees and made sure everyone was having fun while still managing to keep the store running professionally.

Helping out customers and meeting their needs was rewarding, almost compensating for the low salary provided by the company.

Good starter job
Store Manager (Current Employee), MAJanuary 13, 2014
Pros: good people, good discount, good environment
Cons: pay, breaks on the clock, advancement once manager
Being a manager at Olympia is a great job for a recent college grad or someone looking to change fields. Overall it is a decent job as you are mainly selling shoes and making sure customers are happy. Co-workers have mostly been college students or high school students. It is a young environment and shows with the pay. They want to pay young new managers – more... less instead of paying more experienced people more money. There is not much growth once you become a manager unless you want to move to Maine. District manager spots rarely open and starting pay is not good for either. At least you get a decent discount for cool sneakers and the people there at all levels are nice. – less
