Good place to work

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It was one of the more quiet stores/places I’ve worked at but it was an overall enjoyable experience. The job was never very difficult and great coworkers & management helped to make it positive.

terrible company

terrible company. wouldn't recommend it. don't care for their employees, have poor management, and even worse corporate. Don't want employees to excel. If you are a loyal employee for years, they will not try to give you a raise. Some employees that have worked for 5+ years were getting paid less than new hirees.

Pros

none

Cons

terrible, don't care for their employees, poor management, even worse corporate

Solid Retail Job

The pay was not great, but that is to be expected. You feel run ragged during back to school season and Christmas, but other than that it is a mostly chill environment to work in.

No one wants to do their job

It was a struggle to get employees to get off their phones and actually do their job. It’s not a hard job. The hardest part is getting multiple boxes of shoes from the back. It’s hard to work there when it feels like you’re the only one working.

Poor management. Lack of communication skills.

No good training provided. Very poor communication, especially from the so call managers. Human resources is of no help. No culture at all, at any store or at any level. Locations are not visible from main streets, no signs. The communication between the company and the workers preparing new stores is poor to say the least. No discount on a lot of your merchandise, so no benefit on working there. One too many 12 hour shifts.

Pros

No uniform

Cons

Poor management. Bad locations. No culture. No discount on many itmes. Too many 12 hour shifts.

Great starter job

Worked here while I was attending college. Was able to work around my school schedule and have a good relationship with customers and coworkers. Learned how to deal with the public and handle different personalities

Lots of drama

Worked at several locations. The one in Raleigh is poorly managed by district and store managers. Lots of drama and hostile work experience. You also don’t get any shoe releases and pay is low of course since it’s a shoe store.

Fun environment but low pay

Great job for students but not a great career job. The pay is on the low end and the work is easy to complete. Not a lot of chances for promotion through the company

It’s cool

Great place to work. Keeps you on your toes so much and it’s just incredibly exciting to come to work to an atmosphere of this nature. Will never get tired of this place

Decent job low pay

laid back but just wont pay the bills in todays time. Hardest part of the job was waiting on costumers to come in. other than that this might be the best starter job

The pay is horrible and corporate comes in and complains about everything we do wrong instead of uplifting us.

We are over worked and under paid. This company gets millions per store and the starting pay is only $8.25 and every where else is paying more money.

Cons

pay is horrible.

Most coworkers are great. Management is horrible and greedy.

The job itself is the easiest job you’ll ever have. Management is greedy. You won’t get a raise and if you do it’s barely anything. This is a great job for a highschooler. If you have bills to pay don’t work here. The hours and pay you'll receive are horrible if you’re not one of the assistant managers.

Pros

Easy work, lots of downtime

Cons

Horrible pay, not a lot of hours

Poor management

Managers are centered around corporate goals and percentiles and not what’s going on actually within the stores. Favoritism is said to be something that doesn’t happen but is apparent when looking at how policy is applied

I loved working with the customers and helping them find exactly what they wanted but management was too egotistical

I loved working here but the boss seemed to have too much of a laid back attitude and a his way or the highway attitude. I love a job with good management thatll get you right on a set schedule but this was not it. I was given tasks that I have never done before with the expectation of doing it and when I had questions it seemed as if that was so much of a burden

Pros

Good discount

Cons

Management

Fun Environment

Fun job assisting customers with various sportswear needs. Enjoyed my time there but left to find better pay. Would recommend as a job for extra money or if you are in school.

Pros

Discounts on shoes

Cons

Low pay

Easy job but pay is low

Job is pretty easy but they don’t pay the employees much at all. Good employee discount but we can’t use it on new releases until the next day which means you usually won’t get the shoe because it’s sold out
