When it was in operation, it was a great place to work. Our store was lucky we had a great team and management was firm but fair and approachable. Too bad the company was unable to survive

It was a great learning experience. the workplace culture was little competitive. the typical day at work would be greeting customers and helping them out.

Fun place but no longer in business

I loved working here, it was a great part time job. It was faced paced, but easy going. The customers were always happy and friendly. It is unfortunate that this place went bankrupt.

Great place to work

Lovely managers and co workers. Easy and fun but sad to see it close. The products were great and fair prices. I would work here again. Nothing bad to say about the company.

Unfortunately the company shut down now because of bankruptcy

I enjoyed working for Payless shoes. The team was enjoyable and friendly to work with and I like that it was a busy work pace. If the company were to open back up I would work for them again

Good place to work

Awesome store managers, although not a lot of backup available when needed to support staff. Clients were the best part of the job. Great perks and benefits.

Great place to work

Payless is a great place to work. I learned more about customer service and my manager was very understanding when it came to my school. She was very flexible so I never had a problem with her. The coworkers were amazing as well.

I loved it there...

It's really unfortunate that the company had to go down. The shoes were very affordable, and at the location I was working at, my coworkers were so much fun and I couldn't have asked for a better team. I love Payless and sad to see it go.

Positive, helpful environment

Greeting customers and solving their problems Learned to maintain a professional and positive attitude at all time Management was very understanding and genuine Workplace culture was very diverse and equal Hardest part of the job was maintaining a positive and professional attitude after being sworn at. Most enjoyable part was seeing my coworkers and sparking conversations with customers
