Journeys is an amazing company and their values were very strong toward not only its staff but its community as well. When I started in the company, I knew that my hard work would benefit my paychecks because of the commission made on my sales. I was hungry to grow in the company and within 6 months I went from a keyholder in a high volume store to running a brand new location as the general manager. I was super excited and I was compensated very well but I put a lot of blood, sweat, tears, and time into this building. The district manager and I bumped heads a lot but the company itself is an amazing one. I wanted to go all the way to corporate and was on the track to get there, but the DM was the one who didn't support me and without the approval of the DM, I knew I wasn't going to ever get promoted past a general store manager. I was very successful in my role, but the hours and time I dedicated to the store became overwhelming as I was spending anywhere from 50-80 hours a week in my building and I always seemed to be playing catch up.
I would highly recommend this company for someone who has the drive to want to do more and isn't afraid of working hard for it. The company has amazing benefits and have contests to win money, concert tickets, and free shoes based on performance. I would highly recommend working there, even if my experience wasn't the best.
