Good Customer service (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – July 19, 2017
A typical day at work is me providing good customer service, keeping the store organized and stocked. What I learned here was to be more open minded by building relationships with customers. I also learned how to manage or merge my work skills in my everyday life. The workplace culture benefits by letting you express yourself and to be original and creative. The hardest part of the job was to not get enough hours and to survive off low pay. The most enjoyable part of the job were the employee benefits and people that I have worked with and the customers I have met.
Mail Room Technician/PR Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 5, 2018
I worked at the Converse NYHQ during the transition phase to the Boston HQ. I worked mostly shipping and receiving but supported all departments from PR to Tech and Design with facility and office requests. The culture was laid back and casual. I worked closely with smart responsible people and developed much of my good work habits. I did daily checks of the mailroom facilities as well as the conference rooms and communcal office spaces. I would resolve on site issues before reaching out ot vendors. Coordinated catering for meetings as well as furniture set ups including any outside vendors at their request or in my own determination as needed.
Working at converse, you never know what to expect. Sometimes too many associates are scheduled at once and there aren't enough hours for everyone. The management isn't too organized. Barely any raises and no benefits unless full time (not easy to become full time).
Full Time customization Maestro (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 2, 2018
It a great place to work in when you have the right management.Due to lack of great leadership something is always going wrong. Theres lack of communication from the leaders to the employees. Normally Promotion is based on your work ethic but sometime people in there got promoted because of favoritism from management.

Inventory Associate (Former Employee) – Pleasant Prairie, WI – January 15, 2019
Fun work environment with an amazing discount. Lack of hour and advancement opportunity. Came into the company with previous managerial experience willing to work my way up, but found out there were several other employees who have been waiting for years for an open position.
Seasonal Sales Associate (Current Employee) – North Charleston, SC – June 11, 2018
This is my second summer working at Converse. I absolutely LOVE this job! It pays more than minimum wage, the uniform is reasonable and comfortable, the environment is great, and the managers are super cool people. It can get busy every now and then but once you get the hang of the job it's easy. I love my managers. They're people who work hard and are knowledgable of their jobs but are also chill people that want to enjoy themselves. They're a breath of fresh air compared to the typical idea of a manager. The average work day requires helping customers find clothing and shoes (usually shoes) and just making sure they have a good experience. I have learned how to enjoy going to work. I was genuinely excited to come back to this job.The discount is EPIC! The only down side to it is that the shifts are short and you don't get very many days of work unless you're a manager. The breaks aren't very long because the shifts are so short but they do make sure you get your break. It's just enough for you to relax then get back to work. This is a good side job. I highly recommend it.
GREAT management, employee discount, fun environment, comfortable uniform
short/limited shifts if you're not a manager, short breaks
Garden State Plaza Store Manager (Former Employee) – Paramus, NJ – March 5, 2018
10 out of 10 the organization is one of the best in the retail industry. Company has amazing benefits Opportunity for growth collaborative on all levels from associates to management Corporate takes pride in developing they're people.
Honestly, I love working at Converse I just can't deal with the culture they set within my store. I truly believe a leader should lead by example and not have to "delegate" everything. A leader needs to put in the work as well.
Fast paced, fun and friendly job with some downfalls
Part Time Over Associate/Manager in Training (Current Employee) – Folsom, CA – March 29, 2018
Its a fun place to work and have fun. It can be fast paced to really slow. This job is for people who love to interact with other people. I've met people from all over the world with many different stories but everything is the same, the love for Converse. Depending on your position you can receive great benefits from the company. This includes things such as health care to company discounts. Discounts range from Nike to Hurley to name a couple. The work and life balance is a little harder. Holidays and weekends are a must, you never know when you might be called in which is not a bad thing. Your schedule is not steady at all which can become tedious at times. The management hasn't been the best as of lately, I feel the work environment has become somewhat negative and unprofessional at times. But overall a good job depending on your position in the company and the attitude you bring.
Benefits and discounts. Learn how to adapt quickly
SUPERVISOR/RECRUITER (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – January 8, 2019
Great experience with awesome leaders. The leaders make the company what it is. I can honestly say the constant support and communication kept me for four years. The company is constantly looking for good ideas and if you follow the correct chain of command you can impact real change!
