no support for staff at all , management only think about themselves

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
the head office stuff do not care about the retail staff, they care more about themselves and whether they will get into trouble. if you are in the bad book of the management , even if you achieve good kpi , they will overlook it, and focus on your small mistake and try to make it big just because they do not like you .work at your own risk,

Pros

pay

Cons

double job, politics

Fun and enjoyable but really depends what store you’re in

I’ve personally really enjoyed my time at Skechers, I started as a sales assistant and worked my way up to becoming a supervisor. I was lucky enough to get the hours I was looking for in sales. Fun and relaxed environment, as long as you do your job properly you will enjoy it, but it really depends on your store and team. They pay you minimum wage, however there is added commission from each sale, and they’re not strict on targets, as long as they can see you actually trying.

If you like little support and poor management, this is the place to be...

Store Managers were either bad at the job or put under immense pressure and would not stay for any substantial amount of time to give the store stability. Lower level management would often have to do a job above their pay to keep the store ticking over. Very little support from upper management in the business and or Head Office. Frequently understaffed and long opening hours meant the job was stressful and impacted work life balance negatively.

Pros

Discount on product, commision

Cons

Long hours, Understaffing, No support from management

A place of Toxic culture

Management is poor as majority of them are playing politic and gossiping other than focusing on guiding and building new staffs.Store incharges times are very flexible as they can get time off from don't know where and plan long off days together that is approved by the management.KPIs setting has no logic as its conflict with our MSP programs.Training given from the management is useless as none of us are using them in store.Staffs usually have to pay money due to system error.

Pros

Pays slightly better than others

Cons

treatment to staffs are very bad

Productive place, great management

I love my job at Skechers. I started as a sales associate and got promoted a few months later to assistant manager. The manager is great! She’s very understanding and flexible. The team is great overall and the company is great! My favorite retail job I’ve worked in a long time

Pros

Pay, management, improvement, busy

Bad pay. Bad leaders. Bad company.

Skechers are big on a sales culture, greeting people, pushing add on's ect. I think they are a bad company overall. The shop I worked in was way too slow paced and the management above are not very understanding when you start to struggle.You have to write an end of day email detailing the day on top of all the other management responsibilities, it's such a waste of time. There is almost no communication between parts of head office, marketing would have us change something, we would then be emailed by someone telling us not to (almost always after the job had been actioned). Had an issue with price changes sometimes, with them being wrong and having to change them all again the next day.The online side of the business needs more integration with the stores, not being able to click and collect/order missing sizes for customers is an actual joke, it's 2023 Skechers, get with the times! I would say this is a nice job for uni students, as sales assistants. Management are paid poorly and treated badly by those above, when the company appears to be doing well. Profits before people comes to mind. If you want top talent pay a decent wage.Admittedly, before I left targets became more achievable, so that boosted morale slightly. Before that though if your store didn't do well it was because you were incompetent, not much thought by upper management given about stores individual circumstances. UPS deliveries would sometimes randomly turn up, often at the worst times of the day staffing wise. Training was generally poor, this may have just been unique to my store. Have an -

Productive

Was a great place to work until they changed store managers and everything changed! Everything was running fine, and all of a sudden everything had to change it wasn’t right and became chaos

Pretty decent workplace

I applied to Skechers as a temp retail assistant through an agent. A typical day at work would just be us standing around, following customers around and assisting them when they need help. You also have to introduce the promotion going on at the time but this was not hard as there are usually only one at a time.I was the youngest and the only female employee. My coworkers treated me well and they help me when they see that I am struggling.Hardest part of the job is the long standing hours, which is typical for retail work. Some customers can also be a-holes as they will stay in the store for an hour or more, ask you to bring them 5+ pairs of shoes and then they will leave without buying anything ://Some shoes can also be really hard to take when you are short (like me) but my coworkers will help me.

Pros

none really

Cons

it's retail

Productive work

No benefits except store manager and assistant store manager. The management is very lazy and unprofessional. It's very stressful to work there. I would not recommend store 1005.

Pros

No dress code

Cons

Management is bad and it's a very stressful work environment there right now.

Equipo de trabajo muy bueno

Lo mejor de todo es el equipo de trabajo, muy cercanos y ayudan desde el primer momento. Se adaptaron a mis horarios de la universidad y siempre me intentaron explicar para que mejorara. Los sueldos están bastante bien y son siempre sobre las mismas fechas.

Alright workplace

If you are easily able to adapt to customers and their multiple shoe selections at once in a fast pace environment then this is the job for you. This is provided that management is professional and structured

Okay place to work

Managers and coworkers were great to work with. Manager was very flexible in terms of scheduling and accommodating as well, which is perfect for students. Pay, however, is not great and like any retail environment, you may have to deal with difficult customers. Overall, not a bad place to work but you can definitely find similar jobs with higher pay.

Objektif olmayan is gorusmeleri

2 hafta once yapmis oldugum gorusmeye istinaden, ilk gorusme dogal olarak ik ile olunlu geciyor cunku ik'da calisanlar objektif degerlendiriyor burada sikinti yok. Ama is, sozde bolge muduru, satis muduru gibi tiplere geldiginde tamamiyle subjektif degerlendirme tabi degerlendirme denirse!Fethi canbulat denilen arkadasla 2.gorusmeyi online olarak yaptik. Gorusmeyi siyah ekrana yaptim ayri bir konu tabi. Neden derseniz göya internet agi yavasmis da ses gidip gelmesin diye ekrani kapatti sadece sesle iletisim. Is gorusmeleri kisiyle yuzyuze yapilir bunu bilmeyen yoktur sanirim ama bu arkadas zaten gorusmeye girerken bile tanidik vasitasiyla mi basvurdunuz gibi sorular sordu. Yani tanidik olsa ise alinacaktim sanirim. Bu arada ben Magaza Muduru basvurusunda bulundum,18 yildir bu sektördeyim ki gormedigim tanimadigim kimse yok denecek kadar az sektorde. Tabi ki her yere alinacak anlasacak degiliz sonucta her sirketin kendine ozgu proseduru vardir vs vs. Ama burada anlatmaya calistiigim basvuracaksaniz eger tanidinik yoksa ustlerden basvurup da bosu bosuna zaman kaybetmeyin, cunku zaten bastan kural hatasi!
