Just like any job anywhere u work you get paid

For those who NEED the money and work this is amazing place was brought on by manpower. One of highest pay offered that would take me. If you are someone who Wants money beware you do have to actually work and earn your way

Areas for improvement

Poor pay

At some positions you can make money at others you're going to be broke always. Always having to worry about if you'll have enough work to make decent money.

Straightforward

Good basic job to provide a stable flow of income. My coworkers are great, I enjoy working with them. It is easy for me to focus on the tasks at hand.

A place where you can grow.

It's been only few months for me I joined HH Brown. I feel really great when I am working in a friendly environment, most of the people here are very supportive and experienced. In a very small time I got exposed to so many new technologies and working methods. My team is fast paced, friendly and very supportive for each other- They always help you to learn new things. They also understand and considerate about work life balance or if you need PTO's/ Flexible hours (of course depends on your manager as well). I am so happy that I got an opportunity to work here.

Pros

Friendly environment, Flexible hours, Trainings, supportive Team

Great company to work for. Fun enviroment with a good work life balance.

I've worked for HH Brown Shoe for 4 years now and its been a great experience. The staff is easy to get along with and my hard work has been rewarded. I've recommend a few friends to join the company. Stable company with a good workplace culture.

Pros

Management Team, Compensation, Product, and Work Life Balance

Cons

It's a ok place to work. We work alot of hours. So if you want a life this is not the place to work.

I've been working here for 26 years on and off. In the the last 5 years this place really went down hill. There is no training and has poor management. The drugs are really bad up there.

This place is not for young people

This is a place where people come to die. No room for any real growth unless you buddy up with hiring managers. Your work does not speak for itself.

Pros

Good location in Greenwich.

Cons

Good ole boys club.

Great management, fast paced but not too stressful. The hourly biweekly pay is terrible though.

Nice current and fast paced job. It's not to demanding or stressful. The hourly pay, and only being paid biweekly is below poverty level, for cost of living wages unfortunately. Management is great!

horrible place to work

training for the job you go in for take about a month, when it could take a week, bosses are aggressive and pushy, the hardest part of the job is standing around and waiting for work to come down the line to be done, and the best part of the day is cleaning your area and leaving at the end of the day

"Clique" mentality, Outsiders Run

If you are not related to, sleeping with, or worked there for 40 years, you have NO CHANCE, surving there. Long time workers, CONTINUISLY QUIT, and are RE HIRED. NEW HIRES, dont stand a chance at making ANY kind of wages. As the PIECE WORK, is handed out, to workers at MANAGMENTS choosing. So if you are NOT in their circle, or they decide that they don't like you, or want you there, you will STARVE. They will RE HIRE, prisoners on work release, pedophiles, and when employees were found DOING DRUGS AT WORK ON THE COMPANY GROUNDS. Instead of being fired.....they were allowed to keep their jobs, and ALL employees had to attend a drug counseling session, where they offered FREE REHAB.....But good, hardworking NEW HIRES, dont stand a chance, and get run out of their job, like me, and others. I'm not a local, but I worked hard at my job. I was always early, did what ever was asked of me. But, I watched as many employees just walked around socializing, or taking smoke breaks, for half of the day. But, if you actually DO your work, you get accused of being UNPRODUCTIVE. That was the end for me. Working for NO MONEY, and being DISRESPECTED, was not worth it.

Pros

None

Cons

Management, pay, hours, "clique" mentality, junk machines

fast paced

HH Brown is a very Physically and Mentally demandig job. All workes must consider the fact that everyone depends on each other. One call off could effect the whole factory in a domino effecct

I love working here

I love working here i just need more money so a Saturday job would be perfect. I love having my own space, I come in and get my work done. Whether it's shipping shoes, entering orders, working with consumers/sales reps. Its great. I just want to work Saturdays as well and the office is closed that day.

It's a job

Sweat shop atmosphere. Not always organized. Management is average at best. Must meet quota to get bonus. You can make money if you work quickly. Co-workers are all friendly.

Pros

You can make money if you work hard

Cons

Sweat Shop

At Cove shoe we put boots together cement shoes together do all kinds of stuff with cementing

The boots together make sure they're all right fit on the right size do the right Linings left and rights make sure they're all back in the same rack? To the end of the line make sure all our work is done if we have recut to take them off I think I do a pretty good job at my job I've been there all together 18 years
