Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Midlothian – 28 November 2018
It was fantastic and fun. I loved getting to work with other teenagers and getting to work with all sorts of animals. The staff members there were absolutely excellent. If I had the chance I would go back again because I honestly loved it.
Shop Assistant - Part Time (Former Employee) – Greenford – 24 October 2018
I only worked there for a week for work experience arranged by the college. The manager had a terrible attitude. We were allowed 30 minutes extra break considering the fact that we were students and used to seating through out the day. It was my first job so I found it a bit tedious because even when there were no customers and everything was polished were told to keep touching and doing irrelevant stuff. At the end of the day I could not even walk to the bus stop my feets where that painful
Some employees where nice and understanding
The management needs to be more friendly towards employees
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Sheffield – 30 September 2018
Terrible place to work. The company lacks professionalism in the way it treats employees. As a store manager, your accountability is equivalent of a senior sales assistant at most other retail businesses. Expect extreme directive management from your area manager, and pretty much zero autonomy. The pay is poor even by retail standards. There is a very odd culture in this company, that you have to experience to really understand how bad it is. But you'd be better of just avoiding it.

The staff at head office ,accounts and area mangers were wonderful,as new to management they was their for helping me to understand the role of store manager I really enjoyed working at shoezone I made lots off new friends and met lots off new people
STORE SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – england – 15 August 2018
days started at a reasonable time as did the end of day. Left with some firm foundations on how retail works. Hardest part of the job was carrying up large cartons of stock that were sometimes very heavy into the store room which was located upstairs in the property, the most enjoyable part of the job was giving customer satisfaction.
Retail Assistant (Current Employee) – Oxford – 9 August 2018
Typical day at work is serving customers and helping them find what they require.I have learned nothing from the managerI didn't already know. I did go to another branch for training as I felt I had more to learn about the service I was giving for the company.the hardest part is not being able to input anything. The best part of my day at shoezone is going home.
Discount on footwear
Long hours plus not being appreciated for the work I do
Manageress (Current Employee) – Bletchley, Buckinghamshire – 9 August 2018
my day starts by opening up the till and making sure the money balances from the previous day. I then make sure that the shelves are stocked and presentable ready for opening. once the shop is open I serve the customers with the products they wish to purchase, ensureing they have obtained everything they wished to buy today. I have learnt that if you treat your customers with politeness and respect you will get the same in return, and this also has your customer leaveing the shop with a smile on their face and wanting to return again. I work with staff of different ages and race, and we all respect one another and cultures. the hardest part of our job is delivery day as we have to carry our delivery up 2 flights of stairs.the most enjoyable part of my job is the people I work with and meeting new people everyday with our customers.
