Supervisor in Sheffield
on 27 January 2023
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 area of responsibility scheme where they assign a certain part of the store function for you to focus on every few months, this is used as a tool for "Progression" Good luck getting those above you to spend any time with you on it though. My managers spent little to no time helping me be better at my job, if I made a mistake it was all my fault, every time I did something good though it was down to them.If you struggle at all with your mental health I would steer clear, they give all the lip service about caring for your well being. As soon as you start to struggle though they will throw you under a bus and put it down to "attitude issues" It's ok to not be ok, as long as it's not on the company's time. Overall then I wouldn't recommend joining as anything above a sales assistant. The pay is poor for what they expect of you. In the end when I needed good leadership, coaching and someone to get me through a tough time I was totally thrown under a bus and abandoned (even after going above and beyond with my duties and being a good employee, especially during a busy christmas period, boxing day aside), as my store manager and assistant manager didn't have a clue how to deal with it. They instead went to the regional manager for advice, making me look like a toxic person who needed to be managed out of the business. Poor people managers that plague the company unfortunately. I would more than likely still be working there as we could have worked through my problems (in my honest opinion) with a little bit of good management, and understanding. In the end though I suspect the manager and especially the assistant manager were happy to see me leave. Go somewhere else for better pay and less responsibilities, it's a no-brainer really.

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.

Great place to work
Really good place to work but the managers salary needs increasing the managers salaries are all close together but store managers have a lot more responsibilities. Compared to local jobs and competitors the salary for managers are much less

Hideous.
Awful place to work. The only saving grace was some nice work colleagues. My mental health improved when I left and now I'm thriving. There are way better jobs out there. Don't do it.

No Respect
wasn’t properly trained. given massive sections to clear and manage all my yourself if you’re not favoured but if you’re favoured you’re given small sections to share which just isn’t fair.
