Sales Associate (Current Employee), DartmouthApril 28, 2014
Pros: great team to work with
Cons: not enough hours available
Journey's is a place where everyone can be their own person, let your personality shine while helping others find their perfect fit. It is simply a place where customers become your friends, we get to know our customers on a personal level to create an unforgettable experience. A typical day of work consists of helping customers find the perfect shoe – more... they've been looking for, running drag, shifting stock in the back room and filling display shoes. Our management is great, they take the time to make sure their part-timers are feeling comfortable with the work environment, they are open to suggestions and improvements and are easy to approach with any issue. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with each customer and getting to know each one of them. I get to meet so many great and friendly people everyday, and because I meet new people every time at work, I continuously learn new ways to interact with people. The hardest part of the job is stock shifting, it is physically demanding as I move stacks of heavy boxes up and down ladders for hours. However that being said, I still enjoy every aspect of my job. I'm always learning and that's the most rewarding thing to me about my job. – less

Sales Associate (Former Employee), London, ONSeptember 25, 2013
Pros: everything

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

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

Sales Representative/Cashier (Former Employee), Denton, TXSeptember 9, 2014
Pros: seeing and meeting new customers everyday
Cons: the pay is not great
If you are young and just looking for some little cash to hang put with your friends on the weekends this is the job for you. Hours are not guaranteed and the pay is not that great either.

Best First Job Experience
SALES ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), Columbus, GaSeptember 1, 2014
Pros: being able to express yourself by dressing however you want as long as you wear the company's shoes, growing and learning from both employees and mangers, being treated as an equal, and being able to learn skills that will be used in future job opportunities.
I learned how to be a team player and to take risks at work. It is okay for a customer to say no. It will teach you how to conduct self behavior and to remain a positive person. Never give up and to keep motivating yourself to do better. All of my employers have been great to me. They taught me how to believe in myself and how to feel confident. I learned – more... so much within a short amount of time and was able to teach those around me. – less

Old Shoes, New Shoes
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Elizabeth, NJSeptember 1, 2014
Pros: management gives good hours to employees
Cons: on-call most of the time
Journey's is shoe retail store. Greeting customers and fixing the stock room was an everyday thing for the part timers and the managers. If there were no customers in the store front, the employees fix the stock room. Management is not too lenient but also not to strict. They are in the middle ground. The workers are very relaxed and very easy to work – more... with. It is easy to move up in the ladder if you can show your numbers. If you hit goal everyday then in no time you would get promoted. It was an easy job and getting to know a totally different culture is fun. The only thing i did not like was my last three weeks of working there. I was on-call most of the time, and everyday they would call only me. I had no day-offs, had to close everyday and I was in school. I don't know about other locations but the store I worked at, the assistant manager only wanted her numbers to go up so that she can get a big commission. If an employee works with a group of people and sells $900 worth of items, and the manager helps one of those people in that group which ended up in a $40 sale, I think that the employee should get the credit for making that sale and not the manager. – less

Fantastic employees with lacking disciplined upper management.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Stroudsburg, PAAugust 29, 2014
I was a huge fan of the way journeys was run as a whole, the atmosphere was undeniably fantastic, yet the way it was care free in some ways had a way of convincing part time employees that it was a paid field day.

over all I believe more training is needed for employees

Fun place to work
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Merrillville, INAugust 21, 2014
A day at Journeys was either really busy or really empty. I learned a lot about the requirement of hours I'd need to afford living and also better gained my people skills. The co-workers were fairly younger than myself, but all in all I solely paid focus to my job and got along with everyone granted the generational barrier. The best part of the job – more... was having a client enter our store without a clue of what he/she needed and going above and beyond to not only get them exactly what they needed, but also brighten their day in the process. The self-satisfaction in that is fantastic. The hardest part was gaining the right number of hours and pay to suffice my independent living expenses. Overall, I really enjoyed all I'd learned from Journeys even though I was only there a short while. – less

nice first start to retail
Sales associate (Former Employee), South Attleboro, MAAugust 4, 2014
This job was a simple retail job that I did enjoy for the short period of time that I was there I had to organize and sell shoes which was a nice change. I enjoyed the staff they were very down to earth id say the hardest part of the job was getting critiqued for people not wanting to purchase anything that day.

Sale focus and lack of employee needs and no advancement opportunities
Store Sales Manager (Former Employee), Union Gap, WAAugust 1, 2014
Pros: some benefits for full time employees
Cons: little to no breaks, no gratitude, no respect, no company advancement
A typical day at work required all efforts to complete all tasks and no extra compensation or respect from above management. I learned how to appreciate myself over a company who did not respect their employees; however I did slightly learn the basics of running a store but with little to no help from management above. My co-workers were just fine as – more... I hired and trained them. The hardest part of the job was prioritizing as the management put emphasis on everything and were upset when somethings were not finished over other things and did not pay gratitude or respects. The most enjoyable part was helping customers and maintaining the inventory. – less
