Cashier, stock shelves, tidy up (Current Employee) – Manassas, VA – June 14, 2017
customers aren't too bad although there are some rude ones. managers kinda seem to put the work on others. they don't recover very well and usually i was stuck cleaning. the best part though are those few, nice customers.

I worked here years ago. The hours were meh, I was usually on call, a practice that has been ended thank goodness. One manager was OK and the other one was lazy and entitled. The district manager was and awful person.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Monroe, NY – January 17, 2018
As I professional within the Footwear industry, many of the goals are unrealistic. As hours tightened we were often asked to push peoole out of the store at 9:00 pm. Very uncomfortable. No review or increases. Also strange. My store manager was a profiler, which I find deplorable and would be told to follow certain individuals on my walkie.
Working at Famous Footwear was the ultimate experience. The boss I had was amazing and real down-to-earth. The job can be very rewarding, and is great, as long as you want to work there. You get out of it what you put into it. It is not just a job where you greet customers and stand pretty. You have multiple tasks to complete, but it is a great way to use teamwork. You have to want to work in order to enjoy the job. I absolutely loved working there. I would go back if I could.
Employee discount, great store manager, fun atmosphere
Limited hours, multiple tasks in short amount of time

Same ups and downs that came with retail. I loved my other assistant manager and my store manager. Unfortunately I had to leave for person reasons, otherwise I would most likely still be working there.

At Famous Footwear, you will learn about insoles, shoes and much more. You will learn a lot from your guests, fellow employees and the DM. The work load can be heavy at times but there is a silver lining at the end of the rainbow.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Coralville, IA – January 9, 2018
Slow paced work environment. Management was all over the place with training, never fully trained in what I was supposed to be doing. However customers were amazing and always understanding when trying to locate product.
If you like shoes you would enjoy working there. Great people and customers to work with. Things can get a little repetitive but not too bad. You can still work hard and get stuff done but you can do it in a fun way

Shoe Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Lakewood, WA – January 7, 2018
I learned that retail is one of my favorite things to work in, my manager was great, workplace was nice and calm, hardest part was when it got super busy and we were all rushing to get things done, the most enjoyable was relaxing with co workers, a typical day at work was calm and relaxing and fun
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – North Olmsted, OH – January 7, 2018
If you dont require guaranteed hours and specific schedule days and times this is for you. Store managers are considered golden and assitants/ sales people are expendable. Fast paced work environment with minimal staff per store.
Good pay as a whole
Not usually provided 40 hours per week Bonuses for managers only
