Payless ShoeSource Reviews

Working at Payless is great! I love working with any employee and we typically have get-together's about twice a month where we will all hang out with each other. The customers aren't bad either. There is usually a good sale going on so the customers become happy shoppers. In addition, management is very good at letting people take personal days and schedules are made in a good timely fashion.

I had flexible hours, understanding managers, and friendly coworkers.
I also had a discount on, you got it, shoes and accessories!
I have worked for Payless ShoeSource for five years. I started out as a part-timer then worked my way to a full-time, and now I'm management. Overall I have had postive experince with Payless and would recommend it to others! Plus an awesome employee discount.
