Productive and fun work place with a great team
Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Cairns City QLD17 May 2018
A typical day at Skechers is always fun, it goes really quick and you get so much done. I've learned how to lace a shoe properly, opertate a til, open the store, do a split payment, how to deal with customers and I've learned the different types and styles of shoes. The management is a ten out of ten. The hardest part of the job is at the back when you're looking for a specific shoe and it's been misplaced and you've got the customer waiting for a while. The most enjoyable part of the job is just rocking up and just getting to spend the day with an awesome and fun team, getting to meet new people and listening to music all day.
Pros
Great team
Cons
Nothing really

Terrible management, very high staff turnover
Casual Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD23 January 2018
The management is absolutely terrible. There's no clear instructions or any form of support coming from higher ups, you're just required to know and learn things on your own. Theres also alot of gossip that goes round this company.

Shifts and hours given are based NOT on performance, but favouritism and how much the manager likes you (read other reviews). Myself and many other casuals have experienced this form of management and its awful. Their way of "sacking" you is by slowly cutting down your hours to 3-6 a week, forcing you to quit on your own.

As a staff you are also expected to buy work shoes at 40% off which comes down to around $70, and you're required to buy new ones every 2-3 months because of how quickly they get rid of stock. Once your store sends out the shoes that you wear for work, you basically can't wear them anymore and have to get new ones.

All in all, the company experiences a very high turnover rate of staff and poor management so there's pretty much no job security.
Pros
Good team vibe, decent pay
Cons
Favouritism, high turnover rate, expensive work shoes

NO work life balance
Manager (Former Employee) –  Melbourne VIC21 May 2017
As a manager you are required to work a lot of over time which only you will be blamed for as poor time management, the turnover is extremely high because the expectations are unrealistic.
A lot of favourism goes on via upper management.
Pros
staff discount at their other stores
Cons
almost everything else

Not what I was looking for
Store Manager - Full Time (Former Employee) –  Miranda NSW22 January 2017
Communication within the company was quite poor and it made it difficult to understand what was required and what I could do for the company...

Team vibe was amazing and the company as a whole had a lot to offer. But communication with management was confusing for the whole team.

Fast paced, customer focused, fun environment
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Perth WA10 April 2016
A typical day would include, opening, briefing the team, setting daily budgets and incentives then focusing on customer service,
I worked with the happiest, most motivated bunch of people i've ever had the pleasure of working with.
I learned how to take on more responsibility within the team, make sure the team were always ontop of everything, and staying on track to meet budget.

Hardest part of the job i would have to say customer complaints- although rare.
Most enjoyable part of the job- the customers.
