Global company with over 25 different shoe and apparel brands.
Pros: paid expenses, full benefits, global positions available.
I work from my home and manage 204 locally owned shoe stores within eight Northeastern states. Depending on the time of year, I am either on the road meeting with accounts face to face to present our new lines of children's shoes, or entering orders and making spreadsheets so that I am aware of my goals and what numbers I need, per account, to reach – more... said goals. Working out of my home means that I am not in very close contact with any coworkers, but we do see each other at various shoe shows/functions throughout the year. I keep in touch via phone and email with various other Account Executives on the road if I have questions or to bounce ideas off of them. Although we do not see each other often, the Account Executives are close and are ready and willing to listen and help when approached. I would say that the hardest part of my job happens to be my most favorite part, and that is everything is all on you and your performance. You make your own schedule, travel dates, appointments, for which you need to be disciplined and self-motivated. The pressure of making your goal for the season can be eliminated once you know that you have done your job to the best of your ability. – less
