Cashier (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 5 July 2018
I've been working at The Shoe Company for over a year now and it was my first job, and for a fist job i would definitely recommend it. like all jobs it has it ups and downs but overall it taught me a lot. and teaches you a lot about customer service
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 July 2018
management is okay. the hours could be better. salary is low for management position. promotions are notified to the store in a very tight time line and needs to be changed which is a huge headache if we are less staffed for the day and it is busy.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Orleans, ON – 28 June 2018
Store Management and coworkers are fantastic. Treatment or customers and employees by upper management is terrible. High workload expectations for bare minimum staffing. Not enough labour hours provided to get tasks done and serve customers as head office desires. Not a lot of upward mobility or raises available, job is secure but hours are not
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 19 June 2018
A district manager who really did not care and was completely fake and unprofessional. Manager that fabricated and never really took a stand with employees, she liked to talk behind associates backs, high school drama. They would still make it seem like you do absolutely nothing. no respect and appreciation.
Company breaks policies, upper management likes to micro manage, you will make the same wage a the rest of staff, some staff are childish and unprofessional
Sales Associate and Cashier (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 18 June 2018
In a typical work day, I always have the opportunity to learn something new, its a great work atmosphere and the work schedule is alright can be better but it is good so far, the management is amazing everyone is polite and kind and fun to work with.
Customer service Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 16 June 2018
Log in, check the targets for the day, create desired goal. Learned the basic necessities for managing a store, but most came from my schooling. Management was inadequate in providing proper training. Modules that needed work was not provided after the first day. Hardest part of the job was dealing with management. Most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the smiles of satisfied customers and returning clients.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON – 13 June 2018
The shoe company is a lovely, fast pace job where you meet new people daily which helps make the longer shifts more interesting and fun filled. Cleaning the store after closing is a requirement but not at all difficult. They train you as a cashier, teach you how to place online orders for customers, and teach you many helpful tips on customer service. Working on the floor you assist customers with finding shoes as well as cleaning up the aisles, greeting customers and informing them about current sales. I truly enjoyed my time working at the Shoe Company.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 4 June 2018
I enjoyed working with others and learned a lot about the workplace culture. This retail position helped improve my communication skills and I enjoyed the challenges that came along. It helped improve on all my skills overall.
Constructive and healthy work environment with an awesome team.
Manager on Duty (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 9 May 2018
At The Shoe Company, I learned a variety of life skills that I will apply in any job or career that I may experience. The team that welcomed me, and the team that we built over the time that I worked with the company was supportive, co-operative and exceptional.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 6 May 2018
horrible district manager. manager had no backbone. could be the hardest worker and would still make it seem like you do absolutely nothing. no respect and appreciation. complain about your work but wouldn’t offer proper training. district and above fed on your fear. uncleanliness store, always looked like garbage.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 3 May 2018
Working environment is very friendly. Feel very comfortable to learn new staff and never hesitated to ask if I am not sure. Enjoying dealing with different types of customers. Feel bad if I cant find the thing client is looking for.
Management provides lunch or dinner if we achieved our goal
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 1 May 2018
overall management for this company does not care about their employees as well as they are very unprofessional. work is often left for associates to do by themselves while the manager is using work hours to complete personal errands. there is nothing enjoyable about this job.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Richmond Hill, ON – 27 April 2018
Everyone at this job was very friendly and helpful. When you needed help with something they made sure to stop whatever it is that they were doing and help you out with what you needed. They taught me more people skills and how to react with customer service.
No cons, it was a normal workplace with expected hours that were given
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.
