My store manager is super awesome at what she does. She schedules everyone to what they've asked for and when we need a day off we ask and most times she will give you that day off. The work is easy but it is work if you're doing it right.
minimal to no training for new management... very poor overgrown toddler staff... if they get in trouble they pouting throwing tantrums. Store was un organized. No training provided...
shoes were good. And discount was ok
very poor structure
Corporate leadership is schizophrenic dictating orders policies, procedures, sales and marketing changes almost daily. Price changes are daily and include fake sales that change the retail price to make the sale price look good. Employees are expected to keep up with all this and serve the customers all while filling out a patched together system of software, electronics, and handwritten forms.
Modern day wage slavery

Upper management doesn’t care about their employees. They have bad communication between upper management and store management. They expect you to put the store before your own mental and physical health. They didn’t close during the Covid pandemic. Risking the lives of employees and families. Overall, the worst company I’ve worked for. $11/hr isn’t enough to live off of, let alone for amount of stress you’re required to deal with
All of the above
Communication within the company is awful. Corporate/Upper Management breeds an environment of animosity because of the lack of communication. Restructuring the districts and regions are forever changing. If you're looking for consistency, this will not be a good fit. Compensation is weak. Prioritizing where the company spends money is loose and training is not a priority.

Other stores may be different, but the one where I was the assistant manager was horrible!! The manager played the associates against each other and the home office always took her word against me. (I did train in a store where the manager was exceptional and seemed to care about her employees.) The most and about the only enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with the customers.
I worked for this company for 4 years. I had the opportunity to watch it decline. The issue with this company lies in corporate office. The only reason I worked here as long as I did was because I had a good experience at a store level. However, given the more recent "advancements" that has changed. Corporate does not care about their employees. Since the store was taken over by a new CEO, employee benefits have declined or have been taken away. Employees have been forced to work during extreme winter store conditions, such as code red when legally no one is allowed to be on the road. Employees were forced to work during the coronavirus pandemic. Corporate does not listen to employee feedback and refuses to give raises even to their most dedicated workers. Store managers are over worked while sales associates struggle to get more hours. Soon, employees will no longer have any say in their schedule, a computer will "generate" schedules for them. The company wasted money on software instead of investing in their employees. They've taken steps to micromanage stores instead of support them. My recommendation: get a job somewhere else.
The store manager called me a idiot but in a different way because she didn’t know what shoe I had to find for the STS. While doing that in front of customers I stayed calm while she yelled at me sayin I was stupid for wanting days off and because I couldn’t find the “missing” shoes when they were never on the shelf or in back when I first started
A wonderful place to work, flexible hours, great pay, ability to accrue vacation hours. All corporate members are very helpful and provide a sense of job security within the company.
