The only reason I did not rate this job one star is because I genuinely like the people that I work with they are all amazing and hard workers, never any drama. However the job itself is high stress and will have your blood pressure through the roof. Though I have been with the company for awhile now I’m leaving soon because I can’t take it anymore. Corporate is toxic constantly demanding things to be changed they can’t seem to make their mind up about the BOGO so they have certain shoes excluded from the BOGO but they do not make that clear on the advertising which has led to customers getting angry and violent (throwing things) with the workers as if it’s our fault that they have false advertising we do not directly control that. Corporate nitpicks at everything constantly demanding pictures of the store and talking about you behind your back. I put in a lot of work my time here only to be told I’m not doing good enough. They only notice the bad never the good. The training I had to become a manager was awful I never felt like I was trained well enough and I was thrown into it the whole process felt rushed which added to my stress level. The job is fun and exciting until you wake up one day and realize you hate it because the longer you’re there the more work you have to do as the new people take time to grasp the concept of shifting and adding shoes on the wall. The shifting and adding shoes on the wall is a lot of physical labor especially if you’re doing it alone. I’m dr
For Skechers corporate: there are multiple departments with multiple teams each. Some will allow you a workload to grow quickly, network, learn, and move up while others will have too much work to have any time to learn, network or grow. HR will tell you there is growth opportunities but this is the reality.... Management doesn't value opinions even if you have been with the company for many years or have previous experience. There is a honey moon phase like most companies but overall the opportunity is limited. If you stick out the day to day agony there is potential for long term growth but it really depends on which area you're in. It doesn't matter how hard you work or what ideas you have it just depends on if something opens up and you have the experience. You will be overworked and underpaid compared to the same position in other companies.
Management is out of touch with what's going on below them and don't seem to care. They are very very outdated in technology and ideas. Some teams are small yet have extremely high workloads and don't hire more people due to management being afraid to ask for more people. While other teams have too many people and not enough work. You will quickly realize which ones are which if you work for them. ...
The benefits are pretty good but they will really pay out/ promote the top level people making 6 figures before they give raises or bonuses to mid or entry level positions.
Your opinions will not be valued and they will probably

I worked very consistently which was amazing. I loved knowing that on these days I would work around four to six hours. In my first week I met four girls who had all given notice, within two weeks we had a staff of five with another new hire the week after that. We all learned why the store lost so many people. Two of my three managers we absolutely awful. The store manager would belittle you if you forgot the one very obscure insole that is literally only in one shoe. I had been made to totally fix our Mark Masons in the stock room because someone else had put a shoe in the wrong place. But I had been back there and seen the one misplaced shoe. There were five more in the wrong space. So as punishment for focusing on my sales goal instead of fixing it I spent the last hour and a half of my shift fixing and moving and getting crushed by these many many many boxes of shoes. The other manager just left me. A number of times, she would say she was taking her lunch walk out the door and come back not a half hour later but forty five minutes or even an hour. She would later complain that she was hungry and I'd tell her to get something to eat, and she would take another full break. Plus one time she just up and left the store after she had purposely switched shifts with another manager. The assistant manager on the other hand was lovely. One time she bought a big box of Cinnabon and let me take a few home for my family. Within about a month I was thinking about quitting. I had it
I started out working in a concept store and truthfully enjoyed it. Our team worked really well together and we had fun for the most part. Unfortunately, that store closed down, so I transferred to the Factory Outlet store. It was nicer in the sense that outlets are majority customer self serve, but this in turn means more work as far as replacing product and getting the store back in order each night. Other than basic customer service and keeping the store up to standard, the only things you ever do is shift the sales floor (shoe boxes) and make shipment holes. I didn’t mind it at first, quite frankly I kinda enjoyed it and found it relaxing. But after awhile of that being the only thing you do every single week almost everyday you work (excluding busy days like weekends or holidays), you get burnt out really really fast. These tasks aren’t difficult at all, but you can only do them so many times without wanting to scream. Coworkers were good for the most part, but there were times it was hard to get everyone to pull their weight - which in turn resulted in the same handful of us always doing the same mundane tasks over and over which sold the ticket to burnout city. Not a whole lot of room for promotion. Other than the Store Manager and Assistant Store Manager position, your only other options are Sales Associate and Floor Lead/Key Holder. Pay was decent, but not very comparable to other stores in the same mall or the same job position at a different store - company tends t
ProsSomewhat decent pay, good discount

A normal day: depending if you were the opening or closing manager.
Opening: Opening the store consisted of unlocking the doors and turning off the alarm. Once you were clocked in at your scheduled time, you would count the tills and petty cash, and writing out the planner for the day. All the people that were scheduled for the day get put on the daily planner according to the time they arrive, all the daily numbers and goals are set for the day as well we each are given a section to maintain throughout our shift. whether it is cleaning, filling the area, making displays, or customer service. As a manager you would send people to their breaks at their certain times; run the store as in customer service, register, moving product, visuals. Helping customers is a huge deal for this company, so we would constantly check on customers to make sure they are finding exactly what they were looking for. I was the first assistant in the store I worked in and all the management/ employees under the store manager and myself looked up to us everyday for help on certain situations and we answered all the questions they had.
Hardest part of the job was sometimes the customers. just about everyday the customers wouldn't treat the employees of the store very nicely. so as a manager would you have to do your best to take care of anything that the employee needed with a challenging customer.
At the end of the night the manager on duty would count the tills and make
I worked for them for 1 year and a few months and I got promoted to supervisor by the time I was maybe 5-6 months in. I was working at one location and they asked me if I could help out other stores and I said yes. I was helping 2 other stores and before I knew it they had transferred me to a way further location from where I lived and from the store I had originally gotten hired at, they didnt even talk to me about it or anything. So at the new location I'm already Supervisor and I was only getting paid as a regular cashier. When I got pregnant they cut my hours like crazy I swear to you I was doing 3.5 - 4 hours a day for only 2 days a week. And when i told them that I got a second job they were upset and when I told them I had a third job they were so upset that they made me choose between them (Skechers) as my priority or my other jobs and I choose the other jobs because I was basically getting paid $3 more at both for a regular position that didnt require much work compared to being a supervisor and working for a horrible pay. Also before making my decision I told them that it's very difficult for me to stay at Skechers and do they work that I do for minimum wage and they said we know, were not gonna change it tho. And so that made it a lot easier for me to make my decision. Beside all that I swear to y'all that a position as a regular sales Associate is a lot easier and you just go in and sell your shoes and make your money. It's based off of commissions. So if you sel
I was a Skechers Store Manager. First of all. Average salary realistically is 35000-42000 for a store manager which is terrible. The company is cheap and sneaky and doesn’t care about anything except money. Staff is underpaid in all positions. No morals and values in the company. Extremely stingy corporate team... one example. Staff was forced to do 2 overnight stays for the simple task of ripping off every price sticker and marking UP every shoe by $10-$15 dollars. The people that noticed left and said they would never be back. Rip off price sticker to hide what we were doing. Stores get One BULK shipment a week, 1500-3000 units at one time so cut shipment costs. Extremely stressful situation that happens every week. They have overstocked their stores because allocations is poorly managed. The weight of the product on the walls was so heavy it was pulling the fixtures out of the wall and breaking them. District Manager visits once a week... I’ve never seen this in any company. Puts huge stress and constant unrealistic visual expectations on staff and managers. Likewise, regional manager visits once every two weeks. Bonus is just for Store Managers, no one else. BUT upper management manipulates sales plan goals so high... sometimes 50% up to LY per quarter to make $850 before taxes. Lame and very stingy. Good luck staffing your store. No one wants to work here for any amount of time because of the crazy workload and stress. Not to mention that Skechers has a reputation
Overall a decent company to work for if you can get it.
I have worked at Skechers since 2014 when I started college, since then, I have gone through a lot of stress partially brought on by working for a severely understaffed Skechers location that, at its lowest, had 5 employees. The turnover has gotten worse lately as we are currently down to 7 members of staff with applicants that the district manager just isn't willing to hire due to them "not being qualified properly" because they are still in high school. Skechers does pay fairly well considering I work at an outlet store, I started out at $8 and am now up to a much healthier $9.50 two years later. Management in our store has been tough since spring of 2016 when the manager that hired me transferred and one of our assistant managers left for Ecco. Since they left, we have gone through 2 store managers and our full-time assistant manager being in charge with the store hitting a slump standard-wise. The customers in our store are either older, or tourists.
The most enjoyable part of working for this store has been working alongside some people I am very proud to call my friends at this point.
If Skechers can manage to lower their hiring standards so that high school students can work there, I would be very happy because we've got people applying, its just high school kids that can't get hired.
Also, just in case any Skechers higher-ups see this, THANK YOU for finally changing the tattoo policy! I appreciate it FINALLY being able to properly express myself at work in my
great environment with energetic coworkers. Most memorable job
Overall even though I was there for just a little over a year, it wasn't a hostile and distressing workplace. Managers were always maintaining the floor while keeping good positive relations with employees to create positive atmosphere. As of what i know i didn't have any enemies since i always was always ready to help and listen to simple request from co-workers. Within a year i was highly requested by the managers to potentially be a floor lead if i chose to head towards that route. Myself and only another co-worker were both offered the position amongst all the other sales associates. Our work productivity, ethics and readiness to assist co-workers and maintain the store was noticed. The only challenge of the job that caused me to leave was the need for higher pay to maintain house bills and school payment was a challenge on a minimum wage part-time job. Furthermore, as business excessively slowed down in the mall, taking the floor supervisor job still wouldn't be sufficient to maintain my expenses. If the mall traffic had not slowed down I would have stayed. I'm a kinesthetic person and not so much the type of person who can sit still in one area, like a cubicle, for hours. I need to use my hands and be active. The other job I enjoyed for the quality of work is my 3 year server job; which was active, hands on, customer service interactive, busy work, and quick thinking.
I recently resigned from my position because it was not what I agreed to. I was an assistant manager at my store and was told when hired I’ll have a certain schedule. My schedule was changed 3/4 times for the month and a half I worked there. When talked to about why I haven’t been the same from the beginning (I worked several hours to pickup for staff that couldn’t at the time) and now I needed to get my appointments/important stuff done as well. Did they care? No, I was supposed to accommodate everyone else’s life and push any concerns with mine to make the business happy when again I did not agree to the shifts they continued to place me on.Managers took weekends off everytime or days they knew would be less work, leaving me with weekend and mid day shifts taking my mornings and nights. I not only put my time and energy in this job but my health and was left with nothing. On my last day I ended up paying for my transportation like I usually do and an hour in I was told they’ll like to speak with me, they didn’t want to hear anything other than if I’ll be able to continue to compromise my life to make everyone else happy till my detriment. I explained I love the company and my employees but after the conversation and the unprofessionalism I experienced from my district manager I resigned. You do not treat people like that nor talk to them like that. Please do not join this company unless you know for sure they’ll respect your time and energy.
I worked in Skechers for about 3 months and I can only describe my experience here as miserable. A typical day consists of you running around the shop, climbing unstable ladders in stock rooms to get shoes and being belittled by management.
Skechers take their young staff for granted paying those under 20 less than minimum wage. Managers are extremely incompetent with a lack of people skills and empathy and the morale in the shop is extremely low whilst they are working. Targets are unrealistic and there is no incentive to reach them other than the threat of having your hours cut if you don't.
This company continuously cut corners on pay and are always renewing employees contracts for probation so that they don't have to make them permanent which in other words would give them more rights. In one particular circumstance my manager refused to take my P45 from me resulting in weeks of emergency tax. After opening a file with revenue I was told I would need to inform Skechers payroll to apply my credits I asked the manager for the number and was refused it.
In the store I worked in, in particular the manager would name and shame people on a targets board if they didn't reach them and in all of my time there I had never heard the manager praise anyone for any work well done, instead opting to tell staff that they weren't working hard enough and their efforts so far weren't good enough.

Sucursal plaza ANTEA: Mucho tiempo y trabajo por tan poco dinero
No hay compañerismo, tienes suerte si tienes apoyo de alguien más dentro de la tienda. Ya que como casi todo el salario depende de las comisiones todos actúan muy egoístas para "ganarte" las ventas.
El trato de la gerente es PÉSIMO, si tienes dudas sobre algo te dice que por algo uno lee los manuales el día que ingresa a trabajar, que "hagas memoria".
Igualmente si no le caes bien te carga la mano poniéndote a hacer cosas que no te corresponden (ya que a cada quién se le asigna su área).
Desde que entras te comprometen a comprar un par de calzado y playeras de la marca como " parte del uniforme", lo cual te lo descontarán de tu sueldo cada semana durante 3 meses. Te hacen firmar un pagaré por si te sales de trabajar antes de los 3 meses y lo hacen para hacerte pagar si aún debes parte de ese calzado y las playeras.
El sueldo base es muy poco. La gerente se duerme en la bodega (Jacqueline) y si alguien hace ruído se enoja y te regaña. A parte de que es muy racista, si tienes alguna orientación sexual distinta se burla, al igual de que si eres tartamudo, y siempre te llama mediante insultos y palabras antisonantes. Cada quién cobra sus ventas, y si no cubres con el límite de ventas al mes no te depositan NINGÚN porcentaje de comisiones. Hay un "bono de transporte" una vez al mes, el cual al menos a mí JAMÁS me depositaron. A veces hasta cobras menos del supuesto "sueldo base". Por más antigüedad que generes NO HAY AUMENTOS DE SUELDO NI DE PUESTO.

Ho lavorato per poco tempo nel nuovo negozio di sketchers all'outlet di scalo milano.
Non l'avessi mai fatto !!
La cosa peggiore del negozio è l'approccio ai clienti, quando una persona entra si vede venire incontro più d'un addetto vendita dirti "se hai bisogno di qualche scarpa, siamo a vostra disposizione".
Devi assaltare il cliente, questo porta ad un clima stressante e invadente sia per chi lavora (costretto a dire le stesse cose al cliente appena entrato) e anche per i clienti che appena entrano si sentono subito assaltati.
Da cliente non ci andrei mai in un negozio del genere.
Internamente il lavoro è gestito male con dei metodi per esporre le scarpe con le relative scatole che fanno solo allungare i lavori e perdere tempo.
Però attenzione a non essere troppo lenti perchè sicuramente qualche manager ti metterà fretta e probabilmente sbaglierai. Infine per l'errore verrai anche redarguito. In tutto ciò appena entra qualcuno devi mollare tutto quello che stai facendo per dirgli ciao e la solita frase standard.
La qualità delle scarpe tra l'altro molto bassa ed infima per il prezzo che valgono, una scarpa esposta mai usata e nuova aveva già delle parti scucite. Questo esempio sopracitato è la chiave per capire la disorganizzazione del negozio: i capi nel negozio ti dicono anche come salutare i clienti e vogliono le scarpe come dicono loro (anche se visivamente il negozio era orribile) ma non gli interessa di tenere una scarpa ESPOSTA già scucita.
