It was a job. I got a paycheck every two weeks. Shoes. Not a whole lot to say about it. It’s typical retail. Average pay, average work/life balance.

You can find better retail companies to work for. Most of their stores closed, upper management would get upset if you asked for a salary raise. And they only offered part time.
Pros
Discount
Cons
Salary, benefits, management

It was fine, my first job so it was okay to get used to the market. work environment could have used some improvement and payroll was pretty bad, sometimes not enough hours.

I loved working at Payless. Cashiering was easy! The management was nice and understanding. I loved the workplace, women supporting one another, I made many friends! The most enjoyable part of the job was sorting out shoes. The hardest part of the job was slow down because there wasn't much to do.
Pros
Easy!!
Cons
Not a lot of benefits

I worked at Payless as a LP Associate for a store that had a major shrink issue. The position I had with Payless including the location of the store allowed me to learn many useful skills for the Loss Prevention field which I continue to use today. Management was sketchy from the hire ups, but my store manager was outstanding and she knew how to run that store.
Pros
Benefits, Routine
Cons
Compensation, Schedule

Was here for over 8 years. Good luck every taking your vacation time or even just 1 day. It was like moving mountains to get my store covered so I could get time off for surgery to have cancer removed. Zero concern for safety. Always alone so cannot even use the restroom or eat. Payroll is your easiest controllable expense, I get it, but I bet those making those budgets don't have to beg to use the bathroom.
Pros
Pto
Cons
all of it

It was okay. Small store so overwhelming at times. Low pay but, hey... it’s a job. Not bad until the store fills up and there’s only one cash register or if you’re the only employee in the store.

If you work at a dead location, the job will be fine. If you work at a busy mall spot, expect to be worked relentlessly for little pay and your accomplishments go unrecognized. Management is sometimes paid less than employees, little to no upward mobility or raises, and if you discuss your pay with your fellow employees, expect to hear discrepancies based on race and the time you were hired (new employees making 1-3 dollars more per hour than old employees, white employees making 1-2 dollars more than BIPOC). Managers get punished when employees quit, so also expect to be begged to stay for the same pay.

Overall the compensation was not good. Due to the fact that it is very easy to replace people. There were some people who worked here who were nice people.
