Sales Associate/ cashier (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 24 March 2018
a typical day at the shoe company was signing into day force and then getting started. I worked as a sales associate and cashier so I got to interact with many people and learned great communicative skills. I was often told to do stalk as we didn't have one at the time which I was not a big fan of and was not part of my job requirements. Where I worked the store was empty most of the time so I didn't get to do much which made the job boring.

a typical work day consisted of signing in and helping re-organize/re-locate misplaced merchandise/missing merchandise. I learned about leather authenticity and was happy to assist customers choosing their right fit and style. the hardest part of the job was the management, the most enjoyable was tending to customer concerns/questions

The shoe company is a good place to work, allowing room for advancement ank skill development. They offer regular trainings and always looking ways to inprove the work environment. I enjoyed that I could learn and use new skills, the team was always great to work with.

They really gave back to their employees provided customer service was your top priority. Ensured your secret shopper reviews got good scores you were rewarded with bonus bucks. one dollar for every buck. It was nice to not have to pay for shoes and it was a great incentive to keep the employees motivated and wanting to do their job.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 9 September 2017
I learned the most that I had to learn about being an effective member of the management company with this company here. I had an amazing supervisor and manager who worked with me well to improve on my skillset. I was able to coach and managed my team members and meet the sales targets and expectations of the store. Great and fun environment to work in, and so many incentives and perks. Bonuses were easy to achieve in this high volume store..
Very friendly and fast paced environment to work in
Perform Manager Duties (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 29 August 2017
A very fun and welcoming place to work at and associates are very friendly with one another, everyone is treated and accepted as part of the group. Managers are very understanding and flexible with scheduling.
Doesn't pay well for amount of work expected to be done.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 13 August 2017
Management doesn't protect employees, pays minimum wage but has a large workload, benefits are not worth it, rules are becoming stricter. Everyone takes their job too seriously for a shoe store, and are extremely greedily invested in sales.
Associate/ Visual/ Stock (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 August 2017
Overall a good place to work. Management is accommodating and kind. They have a decent culture and reward their staff for doing a good job. Plus, everyone needs shoes, so you get rewarded with something you would have had to buy to begin with.
customer service (Former Employee) – Dartmouth, NS – 9 August 2017
The management here was very disrespectful, not caring or compassionate for anyone. They favoured specific employees and made it very well known that some employees do not fit into the "clique". Felt bullied as an employee.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 27 July 2017
i enjoyed my experience with the customers and would recommend to someone looking for a casual job. When i was hired i said yes because i was told i would be getting 10-20 hours minimum. i worked there for 7 months and only once did i get a work week over 10 hours. the manager was not someone i felt comfortable with. When i explained my situation and how i needed the extra hours she explained that the store was not in a position to give me more than 5 a week, but then proceeded to hire more staff. Overall this company would have been a lot more enjoyable if my manager was not like this.
aside from head manager, good environment and people
