Dissappointment with company
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Holyoke, MADecember 9, 2013
I did not like the District Manager with this company, He lied about our pay. Did not communicate well with us. Learned a lot on my own.

Sometimes I had to work by myself from open to close. With no break at all.

The pay was absolutely horrible. I got paid every two weeks.

Very Productive
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCOctober 23, 2013
Pros: discount on the shoes
Cons: very few hours where given
A typical day at work is basically being in the back stocking shoes and getting ready for the new arrivals. Got to make sure that the stock room was neat so that it was easy for the other employees that worked on the floor could get to the shoes fast without having to walk or step over anything or having to make sure that anything was not in their way. – more... What I had learned from working here was how to avoid conflict with the my peers who I worked with. I did that by telling myself that are not the ones you go home with when you clock out, and that they do not pay your bills. Me telling my self that worked out a lot cause I couldn't afford to lose my job. Management was okay they had things in order and they also maintained a good environment for the the sales association. My co-workers were easy to work with we all got alone just about and we worked as a team which made it easy to get the job done on time. There weren't any hard things about the job everything was easy just about even dealing with the customers. The most enjoyable part about the job was getting prepared for the holidays we wore costumes dealing with each holiday we also gathered food and gifts for one another. – less

Active work environment
Store Manager (Current Employee), Rockaway, NJJuly 8, 2013
Pros: building relationships
Cons: low pay, no work family balance.
Opened the store between 9:00 and 9:30 AM and immediately began preparing daily paperwork from last nights polls. Balanced the drawers from the previous night and prepared the store front for the business day. Through out the day as customers would come into the store it was my duty to provide personalized customer service to match every customers individualized – more... needs. Around 1:00 PM my asst. manager would come into the store, if I had interviews set up I would usually conduct them around 1:30-2:00 PM. Depending on estimation of how busy the work day would be I would also have a part time sales associate come in around 1:00 PM and if not then I would have someone on schedule for between 5 PM and 6 PM to close with my asst. manager at 10 PM closing time. Most of the time through out the day are solely sales focused and any task work or maintenance for the store were taken care of after hours or if I had my asst. manager on duty. The hardest part of my job was being away from my family so much, I typically worked 55-60 hours a week, 6 days a week. A typical work day consisted of a 9:00 AM to 6:30 PM shift or 1:00 PM to 10:00 PM shift. The pay was also inconsistent due to being based off of commission. The most enjoyable part of my job was being to create a family environment with my employees and meeting and building relationships with my customers. – less

Fun Work environment, Great Employees
Co Manager (Former Employee), Eatontown, NJMay 25, 2013
Pros: staff, comfortability, manager, control
Cons: pay, benefits, vacation, company policies
A typical day at work included opening the store , registers, filling out daily paperwork, updating displays, and sending out and receiving new merchandise from the warehouse or other stores. In the midst, of managing employees, sending out shoes, checking emails, filing paperwork, and cleaning I would provide excellent customer service to guests and – more... encouraging them to purchase fashionable , trendsetting shoes. From working there I learned how to run a store, how to manage employees, how to deal with employees calling out, how to better lead myself, I taught myself professionalism, and how to run a business. My co-workers were the main reason I came to work everyday with a smile on my face, I hired or helped hire most of them and in conducting the interview , or co conducting the interview (in some cases) I made the interview fun, relaxing, and serious all in one so directly after the interview was over we had a relationship , even if they were not hired they would still come in and visit. The hardest part of the job was juggling my personal life, I worked 50+ hours a week getting paid commission and not being compensated appropriately. This store has pretty great shoes at an affordable price, it was just in a terrible location in the mall, and the area. The most enjoyable part of my job was updating displays, building a great rapport with the clients that I had the pleasure of assisting. – less

My time at Shi
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Winston-Salem, NCMay 3, 2013
Pros: 40% discount
Cons: commission
A typical work day for me is very chill no matter how busy it seems to get I don't really let it get to me I just use my strong social skills, and work ethic to get the job done. Working during the week is so boring. Not many people want to shop on a Monday or a Wednesday but I still try to keep myself occupied keeping my co-workers entertained, while – more... making sure everything is cleaned or making sure we have all the stocks on the walls and off the floors. I learned how to be more social and the right way to sale shoes, as well as being more persuasive. The harderst part of the job is working off of commission because you don't really want people buying just one item, you want them to buy more so your commission will increase and you are able to make the amount for the week that is needed. My co-workers and I are one good team together. We know each others weaknesses and push each other to make them better. We also rub off of one anothers energy. When one is having a bad day, someone is there to bring us back up! The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people and seeing the different styles people like to wear!! Also my co-workers make work very enjoyable for not just them but myself because of the energy we have all throughout the day. – less

Great laid-back atmosphere but extremely too many hours with very little pay off.
Store Manager (Current Employee), Miami, FLOctober 8, 2012
Pros: friendly atmosphere, 40% discount on everything, great training/learning experience.
Cons: to be a "good" manager you need to put in at leaat 50 - 65 hours a week, little to no weekends off, comission with an extremely small salary
I worked for the company for over 3 years because it is a good and fun company. Unfortunately I felt as management I was getting very little back for all the hours and work I was putting in. I would say working a part-time or in possibly in the home office (which you'd have to relocate to Tennesse) would be the best or "happiest" jobs in the company.

Comanager (Current Employee), Rockaway, NJApril 2, 2012
Pros: great management, enjoyable working atmosphere, pleasent customers
Cons: working off of commission and the hours
Working for this company has taught me patients, courtesy, management styles, as well as responsibilities. I have also made good friends within my co-workers, as well as good connections. The hardest thing about my job is pulling the 12 hour shifts all the time and working off of commission.
