Great workplace culture
DSW - Designer Shoe Warehouse - Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Newport News, VA – November 8, 2018
I have been an assistant manager for 3 years with DSW. I originally LOVED it. They preach work-life balance, try to make training and development fun, hands-on, and interactive. You really feel the "work family" value here. Everyone truly cares about each others well being. But everyone also knows there is a job to be done, take care of our customers and work quickly and efficiently. Here recently has been more stressful due to lack of hour and the company trying to do new things to drive profit which in return is exhausting the managers. There's a large gap sometimes of communication from home office to the actual retail stores.
