Good place to work for a short while
Senior Manager of Business Analysis (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 August 2018
Town Shoes Limited, owned by DSW Inc U.S. is a struggling footwear retailer that is trying to find it's niche in a changing Amazon dominated retail market. There main challenge is delivering consistently on projects since collaboration with the U.S. team is not as tight as it needs to be. Management is not top shelf. Nevertheless, it is a good opportunity to learn a few new skills, coping with chaos, and then moving on.
Pros
Relaxed environment
Cons
Disjointed management across the border

"Was" a great place to work
Director of Stores, Western Canada (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON21 June 2018
Town was an amazing place to grow and thrive while the company was lead by the Simpson Family, Since the sale and acquisition by DSW, Town Shoes Limited has become a cold dark place.

No clear direction
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON20 April 2018
Thought they had a lot of potential with the new buyout from DSW Inc but it feels like they lack proper direction or at least they don’t know how to successfully trickle the information down to store level. Too many changes that don’t make sense or just aren’t articulated properly so it leaves ppl wondering about job safety.

Would rate as 0 if possible.
Keyholder (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 April 2018
This company is very biased and does not like to be told they are wrong. They could care less about their employees and only do things that will benefit themselves. Please stay away!

Very traditional, no work/life balance, no established culture
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 October 2017
Very traditional, no work/life balance, managers don't have leadership skills, don't appreciate staff's extra effort or over hours work. There is no established culture. Very high workload.

Great place to work!
Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 April 2017
Town Shoes has come a long way since going corporate approximately 4 years ago. Its Head Office is small yet mighty!
It has definitely made many changes to enforce its focus on "PEOPLE FIRST" and has come a long way. Great place to work if you are someone who is self motivated and has an entrepreneurial spirit. Because of how quickly it is growing vs. the resources it has within the office - there are many opportunities to learn outside of your role and to expand your knowledge and experience.

Horrible
Manager of Lasting Impressions (Former Employee) –  toronto30 July 2014
Lack of advancement opportunities. You will not succeed within this company without being there for many years. The management team is old and needs to be replaced due to being inclusive and unprofessional.
