Sales Associate (Current Employee), Calgary, AB – December 15, 2013
Pros: nice coworkers
Cons: not enough compensation
Staff are extremely nice! Managers are also friendly and approachable. Job requires you to sell shoes while maintaining a clean workplace. Personally, I found the job asked too much of its employees as we were asked to double our sales goals but we did not make commission (no real incentive to sell). Job also required us to climb a big warehouse type – more... ladder and take down shoes that were stacked up a bit too high. Overall it is a nice place to work and I had the opportunity to meet a ton of new people, which i enjoyed! – less
Floor Associate (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – June 19, 2013
Upon first arriving everyday the first thing I would do was check to see what my sales target was for the day. Basically in short what I did was help my customers find the right shoe for them. There was not a whole lot of down time between customers but when there was I would do some cleaning in the store.
I enjoyed working with both the management – more... and other co-workers in my store. It was a very upbeat and happy work environment.
I really enjoyed pushing myself to try and beat my sales quota for the day. The most enjoyable aspects of my job was helping my customers find what they were looking for. – less
My managers at Skechers were completely understanding of my other life obligations in conjunction with my need to work, earn hours. I never had to choose to study for the GRE or come to work. From the fist day my managers became more of a role model for the job and not an office warden. Proper customer service is a skill that I learned during my time – more... there and speaking with customers quickly became my second favorite part of the job, the first was inventory with all the staff because it was like a reunion of Skechers staff. – less
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Garden City, NY – July 4, 2014
I learned everything on my own, I didn't have anyone sit down and train me, I got skipped a position and moved up in a year. Then got promoted to full time in another year.I start off my day if I open, by making sure we have all goals set for the day, individual and store wide. Focus the rest on my day on dealing with customer complaints and increasing – more... sales. – less
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Grapevine, TX – June 26, 2014
Dealing with customers, employees and managing people has taught me a lot on how to speak to others in a more positive way while still maintaining a stern strong attitude. We have a great management team with lots of experience on managing tasks and people. The hardest part of this job is definitely the changing environment, every week something different – more... happens and its challenging for sure, but never overwhelming. The most enjoyable part of being with Skechers has been the experience with customers, the satisfaction of helping people is the best part of all of it. – less
Target driven organisation and enjoyable workplace
Sale Assistant (retail) (Current Employee), Limerick – June 24, 2014
Pros: 30% off skechers shoes
Cons: after three years, still on minimum wage.
My day would consist of providing a high standard of customer service such as selling specific fitness runners to athletes as every day wear shoes, answering and making phone calls to other skechers stores in Ireland and customers, fulfilling tasks delegated from managers and supervisors and ensuring store target is reached. I have learned that I enjoy – more... a busy, fast pace workplace, working as a part of a team and learning new information such as new products. I have a very good working relationship with my two managers that advocating an issue or asking a question is easy and encouraged. The hardest part of my job would be achieving an high UPT- the number of double sales achieved in a week. It is something I constantly work at but can be difficult to maintain when individual sales are higher than expected individual target. I most enjoy work when it is very busy, I am constantly meeting new people and listening to them therefore finding a shoe that suits their needs. I also enjoy work when I have a number of jobs to complete, I get a sense of achievement and love working on my own initiative when completing these tasks. – less
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Santa Monica, CA – June 19, 2014
Cons: not a good company
Wheni first started with skechers, it was a fun place to work. I got recruited by the best manager, had a wonderful experience with the staff and eveything went fine....until I got promoted. I got promoted to Assistant Manger to work as the Shape-Up promoter for the Kiosk at Century City. I had to work 12 hours with no break, If I left the kiosk to – more... go to the bathroom, I got into trouble. I had to work the kiosk while it rained. Called the labor people of California and they said that Skechers had every right to treat their employees how they wanted. I was so upset. I did everything right and then still got the short end of the stick. – less
Supervisor (Former Employee), Rancho Cucamonga, CA – June 4, 2014
Pros: having fun at work
Cons: restocking the store
A typical day would be greeting guests, sizing their feet and grabbing them all the shoes they wanna try on. I learned how to speak to guests and listen to their needs. The management team was a little off, we went through a period of time when we were going through a few managers in a short period of time. My co-workers were a great group of people, – more... easy to get along with and helped the day go by faster. The hardest part of my job was sizing guests feet. The most enjoyable was helping little kids pick out shoes and watching them get exciting when they found a pair they liked. – less

Pros: good management

Skechers was a fun place to work. I learned a lot about the sales department. The management definitely knew how to do their job well. My co-workers were fun and upbeat to work with.

Lead Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Concord, CA – May 20, 2014
Pros: great pay, great place to work.
Cons: no concept store in modesto.
I started here as an associate and ended up leaving as Assistant. I would cashier, do payroll, write the schedule, and perform a number of other duties. All of the managers I worked with, even the District Manager were all so great to work with. My co-workers were a great plus to work with and are still friends of mine to this day. The hardest part – more... of the job was having to leave. I loved every day that I was there and really can appreciate all that I have learned by working there. – less
