Very fast pace work environment, not much else because i was the youngest one working there at the time.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 January 2018
Working at Nine West Wearhouse was an interesting experience because of the people I got to meet with my time working there. The management of the wearhouse was very straightforward and stricted at times. what I've learned within my time working there was learning to wake up everyday of the week with only weekends off. It was a little out of my comfort zone at first but i got used to it with time. There was nothing very difficult about working there because it very easy for me to connect with people no matter their age or background. Most enjoyable thing was trying different foods from different cultures.
Being able to work with such I wide variety of people from different parts of the world
Waking up early every day of the week, I felt as if i did not have much of a social life working there.
Cashier/Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Dartmouth, NS – 26 January 2018
Nine West Shoe Studio in Mic Mac Mall is a dying company. Working there you feel pressured and stressed out at all times, even when you met your sales goal. Management needs improvement, FAST. They fired their old manager on the spot, with no warning and had a new one in AND TRAINED the same day. I have never been more ashamed to work for a company in my life. I had to quit because I felt insecure about my job. Maybe I was next, who knew? I would never work there again.

Depending on the location of your store will directly impact your experience. The management is horrible and the opportunity of promotion is slim to none (unless you have connections to the higher ups)

nine west is a nice place to work while you are in school or trying to save up a few dollars. Communication with head office is not always the best but management do what they can to assess situations.
Troisième clé - Conseillère en vente et caissière (Current Employee) – laval, chomedey – 7 August 2017
Cet emploi ma aider a être plus responsable et a savoir mieux gérer des situations délicates concernant nos produits envers les clients mécontents. Ce travail ma aussi appris a bien gérer un magasin, par exemple: le budget de la journée qui est a faire pour la semaine, s'occuper des employés et s'occuper du plancher en étant la responsable de la journée. J'aime le fait d'avoir des responsabilité importante, cela me motive a vouloir apprendre de plus en plus.
Nine West as a company ok, but the staff at the DC from management to cleaning staff they are 1st class. Everyone is helpful, respectful of others, funny. The staff made for a great work environment. If you want to learn a new skill they are willing to teach. The hardest part of the job was when there is a rush for things to go out and the time is against you.

Sales associate (Current Employee) – British Columbia – 23 November 2016
A typical day at work would include helping customers find their correct shoe size, suggesting other shoes if the ones they originally wanted do not suffice. Then I would complete the sale by bringing them to the cash register and ringing in the shoe(s). My co-workers are very easy people to work with and we work well as a team. The hardest part about the job is finalizing the sale, because you cant force someone to buy a pair of shoes they don't want. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to socialize and meet new people all day.
Sales Floor Supervisor (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 14 November 2016

Key Holder/Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 11 August 2016
Co-workers were very kind and friendly, and would help you in situations needed. The stock room was always a mess and that getting used to it was hard as there was a confusion as to where everything was.
Fun workplace implementing a competitive work environment, and a sales-driven attitude.
Key Holder/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 23 July 2016
Working at Nine West helped me gain a wide variety of skills and helped me uncover many talents I did not know I had. My typical day consisted of opening and/or closing the store, and managing the employees on shift that day. Customers were always welcomed with a warm smile, a promotion and casual conversation while they looked around the store. Help was offered and given to anyone who might need it.
A great part of the job was that I could be myself around customers while still maintaining a professional environment. My bubbly, outgoing personality worked to my advantage in most situations as it made customers feel comfortable and welcome in the store. It was a great feeling being able to fit customers needs and provide them with a product that they loved.
Duties around the store included keeping the displays clean and aesthetically pleasing, making schedules, and ringing customers through. I was also in charge of daily Audits if I opened, and shutting down the store at night.
You can also view my daily tasks on my resume.
Half hour lunches, competitive selling, commission on top of base pay.
Poor management at the higher levels, at times during my employment.
