Sales Associate (Former Employee), London, ONSeptember 25, 2013
Pros: everything
Cons: nothing really
Typical day at work would have been coffee at the start, any stock need organizing, do that. Didn't learn much,retail isn't very hard. management was good, co-workers were nice and friendly, hardest part of the job, and this is nit picking, was when my hands would get super dry from handle cardboard from new stock. it was all pretty enjoyable

Fun, out going work place!
Manager (Former Employee), Newmarket, ONJune 9, 2013
Pros: monthly bonus
Cons: low pay/long hours
Journeys is a great company when it comes to keeping managers and staff motivated with fun challenges and out door activities, that involves everyone.
They are a very diverse company and are willing to give everyone a chance.
The over all mission and goals of the company are great if i was to say anything they should change would be the salary/benefits.

Great People To Work With
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Scarborough, ONMay 22, 2013
Pros: co-workers
My co-workers, and communicating with customers were the only exciting part about working for this company. Though my manager was excellent and treated us with respect the polices of the company itself are flawed.

I really enjoy working there.
Stock Manager (Current Employee), Windsor, ONFebruary 25, 2013
Pros: the staff are great
Cons: not enough hours
Typically I receive and shelve stock on a weekly basis. I learned how to work the sku system and how to work really fast because we get a lot of stock. The hardest part would definitely be that it's very physically demanding, but I don't mind. My co-workers and management are absolutely amazing; great people. My favorite part is that it's all run by – more... young people! – less

Great workplace and team, always on our toes
Co-Manager of Mapleview Mall location (Current Employee), Burlington, ONJanuary 16, 2013
Pros: discount on shoes, meeting new people
Cons: working in the mall
We have a great team at Journeys. I think in a workplace that is very important. I enjoy leading my team, and helping them with different Sales Marketing strategies that will help us improve. The key thing about success in my mind, is strong management. With strong management, it pushes the team to be the best they can be, and we all want to work harder. – more... Journeys is a positive environment. I enjoy dealing with customers, and meeting new people everyday. Some customers can be tricky, but those are my favourite ones. I like a challenge, and pushing myself to achieve goals in my day to day life. – less

Productive volunteering setting
Volunteer (Former Employee), Warszawa, MZApril 26, 2012
Pros: meeting new people, experiencing new things, travelling, making people feel good
Cons: long days, on the road all the time, saying goodbye
A typical day volunteering was meeting new people, traveling new places and experiencing new cultures. I helped different people ,brought joy into there life. I had great fun with working with my other volunteers, two of them were classmates from school. What I learned from the job is people in different parts of the world people have different expectations, – more... and culture norms. The Hardest part of the job was saying goodbye, as I did not want to go I was having so much fun and making people smile giving them gifts and making there day more enjoyable. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and experiencing new things. – less

A fitting first job.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), King of Prussia, PAApril 1, 2014
Pros: meeting new people, being in a mall setting, & close to the food court.
Cons: distance, lack of hours, low wage, management.
On a typical day at work, I found myself approaching customers to sell shoes, socks, accessories, etc & usually being told to go home early due to the slow pace of sales & progress in the store on that particular day. On the days that I had to close I had to make sure that the store was clean, make sure all of the display shelves were neat & full, stay – more... past my scheduled clock out time & help count the money at the end of the night. I learned responsibility, being as though this was my first job. I learned a lot about people as customers & what they are & are not receptive to. I learned about different types of managers & authority because halfway through the time I spent working for Journeys, the management was replaced. I had a great relationship with my co-workers & we helped each other along throughout our days together. The hardest part of the job was the lack of hours which translated into an unfulfilling check at the end of two weeks, the distance, & being told to go home because of the store being slow. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing how much I was able to help people, & meeting new people every day. – less

Productive and fun workplace
Part-time Sales Associate (Current Employee), Greendale, WIMarch 31, 2014
Pros: friendly co-workers, managers, liberal
Cons: pay
I enjoy working at Journeys because it is a very friendly environment. Everyone gets along and problems are handled in a respectful fashion. Each person is different and that contributes to the culture of the store which is an urban/rock atmosphere. Scheduling is very flexible especially since I am in school, I can alter my availability whenever necessary. – more... Each day is a good time, the only stressful thing is selling product everyday to customers because we have sales goals that have to be met. We try to help each other out even if it means giving sales to one another, if the person really needs it. Journeys is a good place to work and build up any skills. – less

unique and fun work environment
Brady Rogers Manager (Former Employee), Muncie, INMarch 28, 2014
journeys was the perfect fit for me. it was great to have an atmosphere where your customers weren't just customers they were like friends and family and to be able to express myself and be exactly who I was made the job that more fun. the part time associates that I worked with were great. the hardest part of the job was trying to multitask alone and – more... do everything all at once when your left by yourself. I got used to it quickly and it taught me how to be efficient and get things accomplished in a timely fashion. – less

So So Company
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), Stamford, CTMarch 28, 2014
Pros: discount on shoes
Cons: short breaks, compensation, unfair company
Set up shoe displays, help customers buy shoes and other items to add to your "commisson". Not really a busy atmosphere unless it's around the holidays. Learned how to get customers to add more items to their purchase. Co-workers were nice at first, but became competitive and manipulative. Managagement was awful and didn't know how to run their store. – more... Hardest part was having to compete and not making your daily goal. – less

Not a great enviroment
Area Sales Manager (Former Employee), Burlington, MAMarch 17, 2014
Pros: was left alone to do your job
Cons: negative attitude and too cut throat sales
Years ago the company was enjoyable to work for. Towards the end of my time there, it got to be way to large where you were just a number and hardly had any support. The upper management seemed to create a negative attitude rather than a positive and encouraging one.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee), North Wales, PAMarch 5, 2014
Pros: as much over time as you wanted
Cons: unreasonable goals, long days, bad communication
As a manager, you're worked very hard. Long hours- working open to close once a week. The customers were the best part of the job; everyone was different and there was never a dull moment.

Co Manager (Former Employee), lansingFebruary 19, 2014
Pros: great discount on shoes and apparel
Cons: zero respect for personal time.
Journeys is a great place to work if you don't have a college degree, are not sure what you really want to do, or if your look prohibits you from working at most other places (tattoos, piercings, etc...). I worked for the company for 5 years. I gained a lot of valuable experience working there but it didn't mesh well with the rest of my life goals.Don't – more... plan on making a career out of Journeys if you ever want to go back to school. It is almost looked down upon. Journeys is a horrible place to work if you have a family or kids. It is a lot of hours so even on your days off you will be so tired that it makes it hard to do much of anything else. There were many times around holidays I would clear 60+ hours a week. I don't think any week as a manager I ever did less than 50 hrs. – less
