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

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

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

Possibly my favorite job I've had.
STORE MANAGER (Former Employee), Maumee, OHJuly 15, 2014
Loved working here. They promote based on performance which was a major advantage for me. I went from a part time sales position to co-manager to store manager in under six months. They promote energy and craziness and it was an excellent atmosphere to be in. I would definitely recommend applying for this job, it barely even feels like work.

Productive and fun workplace
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Lakeland, FLJuly 13, 2014
A typical day at work is greeting customers and helping them find the shoes they want or need, then going to the stock room to find the specific pair(s) of shoes they asked for and taking it out to them. Then when they are ready, you take the shoes to the cash register and ring them up, and then bag their shoes and walk around the counter to hand it – more... to them. That is my day at Journeys. – less

SALES (Former Employee), San Antonio TXJuly 5, 2014
Pros: fun, social aspect
Cons: low hours, lots of climbing, unorganized
The atmosphere for this job was incredible, the customers are fun and your coworkers are all characters. It makes shifts go by very quickly and pleasantly. The best part of the job was connecting with strangers and having fun getting them what they required. The hardest part of the job was climbing up and down ladders all day long.

sales job
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), West Ashley, SCJuly 1, 2014
A typical day at work would be unlocking the store, doing the morning paperwork. Check to see that the deposit was not short the night before. Organize all the displays and dust displays. Once the morning procedures are all completed, open up the store and tend to the customers who need anything. Some days are busier than others so on the busy days – more... there will be more associates scheduled to work. At the end of the day, close the store and count down registers. If other associates are scheduled they will sweep or mop the store. Once the store is clean and re-organized and all the stock is put up on the shelves, fill out the deposit slip for the next day and take the deposit to the bank.

At Journeys I learned how to become more outgoing, manage shipments and multitasking. I have also learned how to sharpen my leadership skills and teach great customer service.

Management at journeys was satisfactory. The managers did their best to help associates stay on sales goals and be impressionable with their customer service.

The hardest part of this job was the amount of multitasking involved.
Sometimes you were the only one running the whole entire store on a very busy day and it would become difficult from time to time.

The most enjoyable part of this job was talking with the customers. In this specific job many of the customers were glad to see new products and apparel that we get in the shipment and it was exciting to get people the products they wanted. – less

Fun place to work, not very employee driven
MIT (Current Employee), AlabamaJune 30, 2014
Pros: discount
Cons: pay, upper management, almost everything else
They work their co's, MIT's, and MGRs to death for very little pay. I mean VERY little. The pressure is tremendous, though not impossible. Advancement is abundant because they can not keep employees. The culture is the best part, being who you are and embracing it.

Great start to work for your first job
Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Milpitas, CAJune 30, 2014
Pros: discounts
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work would be helping customers find the shoes they need and persuading them to buy more of our product. I learned tactics of how to sell: like showing 4 different pairs of shoes to one customer (a shoe they chose, something similar to what they picked, a shoe completely different, and a shoe for sale). With that tactic, I could be – more... able to sell more than one shoe at a time if they're interested. Management was good at Journeys. My supervisor knew what she was doing and she made the job like a family-friendly environment place to work at. I had the best co-workers, it's as if were one big family helping out all the customers there. The hardest part of the job is having to compete sales numbers against my manager and co-workers. Sometimes, not all customers would want to buy shoes, and it'll be hard for me if I don't sell anything because I can lose my job. The most enjoyable part of the job is the environment that I work in. The theme is mostly for teenagers like my age and I feel that I can connect with my customers more better. – less
