Fast paced and motivating environment
Sales Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYMay 18, 2015
Pros: Commission
Absolutely, one of my favorite jobs ever. To excel in Skechers, you learn to be apart of a team because everyone needs help at some point, no matter how talented you are. While being a part of a fast paced sales floor, you also learn to take pride in your paycheck after each pay cycle due to the sales commission. Through each customer experience, you get to learn what features for each product benefits particular problem areas each customer might have like bunions, slip resistant, light weight for exercises, etc. Management gives the highest performers recognition which pushes everyone to continue progressing as sales people and team players. The hardest part of the job was language barriers, which was a minor hurdle. The most enjoyable part is getting to see your units per transactions, average dollar sale, and daily revenue for the store after each shift. The ability to see the numbers up close, allows you to figure out what you need to work on within yourself.

Productive yet unsafe working place
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Springfield, NJMay 18, 2015
Pros: Retail experience, lunch breaks
Cons: Inappropriate customers, bad management
Even though I was only there a short period of time, I adapted to the environment very easily. I realized that selling items and signing up customers for the rewards card came very easy. The reason I quit after about a month is because it became unsafe for me to work there. Customers were always out of line and management ignored it. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the inappropriate customers. What I found enjoyable was actually selling the shoes because I was very good at it. Management didn't seem to care that I am a student and was taking my finals at one point by keeping me there until past midnight on some days.

My typical day at work be selling product and making sure we are hitting on daily goals, encourage other employees to increase sells and be devoted to our product. Since I was in management, I got to learn a lot of new skills that I can carry into other companies. Working with customers and finding them the perfect shoe was the most enjoyable part of my job.

Worst job EVER
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Austin, TXApril 11, 2015
Pros: Discounts on shoes
Cons: The people in the higher power do not know what they're doing.
Terrible company to work for; the worst i've ever worked for. They do not take care of their employees. Unreasonable expectations for the staff at hand. Very unorthodox. Regional/Corporate are VERY judgmental in all the wrong areas.

This is undoubtedly the worst job I have had to date. Corporate is fine, the actual corporation is a well run organization. That being said this particular satellite is horrid.

You're not going anywhere..
Assistant manager responsible for all cash flow (Current Employee), Brandon, FLApril 2, 2015
Pros: easy first job
Cons: terrible management job
It's a great place to work for a part time sales associate. But for an assistant manager or especially a store manager- forget it. The pay is terrible but they compensate for it at the beginning by promising monthly/ quarterly bonuses. After a year of working as a store manager, I have yet to see either one. Corporate gives you minimal hours to work with and has very high expectations for customer service, daily paperwork, transfers, ect.. They promise their best employees promotions but always end up hiring outside of the company when a position is open.

Assistant Manager (Current Employee), outlet mallMarch 18, 2015
Not the type environment you think it will be. you don't have the full support of upper management one would hope for. The company itself has great vision. But the lack of support and growth is very obvious.

The most enjoyable part of the job
Floor Supervisor (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYFebruary 28, 2015
Working in retail I learned that a happy Customer is a returning customer. Helping people everyday makes me feel like a better person. Seeing the smile on someone's face because excellent customer service was provided is what gets me through the day. No customer should leave anywhere unsatisfied and that is why I make sure that every customer I come in contact with as soon as they come through the door feels welcomed and happy to be in the environment. That is the most enjoyable part of my job.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Clinton TownshipFebruary 7, 2015
Pros: commissions/bonuses
Cons: not enough hours/pay per hour
At Skechers, I managed the staff and helped hire/train new employees. I was responsible for making sure we met our sales goal on a daily basis. And ensured visual/marketing updates were done on time. This was a fun place to work for and the commission was an added bonus but it was only 25 hours a week.
