Payless Shource is a good place to work and you are able to grow very quickly however the pay is just is very low for. There is a lot you have to do to maintain the store to their expectations. The company doesn't even provide no holiday events or anything that makes their employees feel like they're appreciated
If you're looking for someplace to make easy cash while having no bills to your name.. this is the place for you. If you're looking for job advancement, support from your upper management team, flexibility, great pay, awesome work environment, encouragement; this is not the place for you. At payless the only goal is to make sales with minimum team members and lack of guidance.
Discount on shoes, career opportunity
Pay, flexibility, no holiday pay, heavily taxed pay checks, no job advancement, poor managment
This was an excellent company to work for. If you were management you got vacation, personal and sick time. You also got offered insurance, 401k and life insurance. It was very competitive but, very fun to find new ideas to sell to customers and all management was very supportive and helpful. Just saw they had to close.
I loved this position. It was a great job to create friendship and camaraderie amongst employees. It never felt like work. I enjoyed the fast paced environment as well as working with the public.
freedom of work
lack of compensation
Management was great fun place to work great discounts great training was always willing to help never wanted to see anybody fail as an associate flexible scheduling great benefits for full-time employees
Great pay and benefits great management
Closure of the company
I started as an assistant manager with a great store manager and staff. The holidays were a little stressful, but the team made it easy to work through the busy season. Pay is meh, benefits are also meh, but it’s not a very demanding job. I ended up leaving due to a personal issue with the DM. My store manager decided to leave the company, I was never even offered to apply for his position, the DM instead hired his friend who knew absolutely nothing about managing a store. I was stuck training some one who was unqualified for the job and being paid quite a bit more than me. For around two months I was carrying the load of store manager and assistant store manager, even when I decided to leave the company I was tasked with training my replacement, the assistant store manager, because the store manager lacked the proper skills to do so. This part of the review has less to do with the company and more to do with this particular district. Overall the job was not to bad, decent for a college kid or a temporary job.
Discount on shoes, generally laid back environment
Stressful holidays, certain performance goals were unrealistic, pay, benefits

Assistant Store Manager positions
I worked at Payless since 12/01/2013 and as of 10/02/2018 I was asked to resign or be fired. I only got one raise and it wasn’t enough to live off of.
Laid back, hour break, 30 percent discount
Long shifts, not consistent with raises.
i loved working at payless i learned a lot and quickly climbed the ladder i was on my way to running my own store just after 5 years but the pay and work/life balance was not worth it
fun be yourself type of place
Upper management (GM, DL, RM, up to the CEO) put too much stress on Store Leaders and Assistant Store Leaders on a daily basis. They have a lot of reports for SL’s and ASL’s to review and a lot of trackers that need to be tracked on a daily basis. You will do from doing customer service, working on the register, to processing shipments (1-2 a week), changing promotions (2-4 weeks), tasking plus meeting your goals hourly and having to make sure all daily goals are met by the end of the day with only 2 people a shift. If they would only focus on making sales goals that would be great!
Benefits, paid holidays, discounts, sick hours, personal time hours, vacation hours
Upper management puts too much stress, too many reports, unrealistic goals, too many trackers to keep track of, not too many hours, not good pay, not a lot of payroll given to high traffic stores
If a higher position you basically won't have a life outside of your job. Customer service is stressful because of the rude customers. You're always cleaning the store. Too much work for the hours they give you.
30% discount, weekly pay
Rude Customers, they always cut your hours
Love the job, love the customers, but you’re expected to do everything in the store and get paid just above minimum. Don’t expect raises, you might or might not get one depending on how the year goes. If you do get one, don’t expect a whole lot.
