I was super excited to work at Aldo but it's probably the most uncomfortable working environment. Their goals are unreasonable and you have to sell shoe care products (insoles & cleaners), bags and accessories. Shoe care is their biggest asset apparently so you would have to sell multiple products PER transaction. I would go into work stressed out and it's just not worth it for a part timer. Management was a mess. When I got back from my vacation, I texted my manager for the schedule and was never answered. Very disorganized. The only enjoyable thing were the people that worked there. I didn't want to go to any of my shifts. To close the store, whether it's a weekday or a weekend, you usually stay 1 hour after closing which is absolutely insane. For the 1 hour, you're dusting, facing, organizing the accessories, making sure all the shoe laces are the same, handbags (make sure all handles are the same way and make sure the chains are placed properly), sweeping, windex-ing and taking out the garbage. If the facing is not done right, they actually get really mad at you and give you a tutorial on how to face and DUST(???). If you're not super competitive, this place is not for you.
