Thumbs down

Not a good company to work for, regular visits from U.S which they will never speak to you, act like you’re beneath them. Same with district mangers/ regional mangers. They never speak to you and when they do it’s condescending. Hr is not there for the people. Rather there to protect misconduct from store managers.There selling ugly shoes for ridiculous prices and wondering why they miss out on sales. Pay is not good either !!!


When your shift finishes.


Excepting the job offer

Nice pay

Working comission based is quite good, you can make a lot of miney regarding how much afford you put in. Management can be quite forceful when it comes to how many hour you want to work for.

Good team

Not a bad place to work, they fit in with the hours I could do around my home life, which to me was a bonus as a lot of companies don't do this anymore. Area manager was a nice guy and really helpful. Store management were good too.


Good discount

Great workplace

The floor staff and the store management are both lovely, the job can get very busy but for the most part its enjoyable. Since its at the outlet, customers can be a bit rude.

Fun but demanding

The job itself is fun, however it is consistent and you are on your feet all day. Working 6 hours without a break. However you are paid a base pay and commission

An all-round constructive and caring work environment. If not having to move cities, I would not be writing this review.

During my time at University I worked for Skechers for a total of 2 years, and I can honestly say that during this time, it became a pleasure to work alongside the team. Having not finished university, I would not be writing this review.As other reviews have mentioned, the store is located on a high street surrounded by other retailers with competitive prices, which does have an impact on sales. However, rather than see this as a negative, this is a great opportunity for people wanting to enhance and improve their sales and customer service skills beyond that which basic retail jobs teach- that are then highly transferrable for future occupations. Having worked at Skechers Sheffield, I would now consider myself a much more successful, pro-active, and adaptable sales person - and I put this down not only to the location of the store, but the support and training from the surrounding team. Across the two years, as expected there has been changes to staff, but I can confidently say that there has always remained a sense of community across the team. I think that there are always exceptions to this in any team across all types of jobs, and that some of the existing reviews reflect these types of individuals. Upon starting, I immediately felt welcomed by all staff, who didn't just see me as a colleague, but expressed a genuine want to get to know me personally. The team is extremely welcoming and made the work environment a place that I didn't just attend to earn a wage, but somewhere I actually enjoyed coming to work. Although I did not initially have a strong passion towards -

Good team, poor management

Great people there, just ashame the manager had no respect for their staff. Training is pretty much as and when so you may not find something out until last minute


Good pay, decent discount, members of staff are nice


unreliable hours, lack of training

Nice colleagues, flexible

Overall this place is good to work, pay is definitely on the lower side for central london and london in general as they want you to try to earn more through commission, some management lack people skills and overall the ability to do their job however overall it is nice environment and good support

Great team structure and a fun environment to work in, with lots of opportunities to learn along the way.

What is the best part of working at the company?The best part was the team I worked with (Bromley store). Loved the brand before I joined the company - my experience made me love it even more. Discount and free trainers were quite good. Also liked the fact you got commission tooWhat is the most stressful part about working at the company?The delivery -having to space the stockroom to be able to fit the stock in in numerical order and by department ie kids, women's and men's. Having to work the delivery shift which finished quite late at night.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Really good lots of incentives instore and amongst other stores I your area. Great management support and amazing sales team. Lots of recognition within store What is a typical day like for you at the company?As a member of the management team - getting in to start up tills etc basic management start of day process, planning what you want the team to do, ensuring that the displays are fully stocked at all times and ensuring we're hitting our hourly kpi's

Loved skechers but not for working mothers

I loved my job at skechers and didn't want to leave the company I excelled in my role and was more than capable of being supervisor I wasn't allowed to apply for supervisor because I have childrenWhen I took the job I was told my 20 hour contract will be weekdays with the odd overtime shift on the weekend which I why I took the jobHowever I rarely worked in the week at all and I worked all day Saturday and Sunday which gave me no time with my children as they were in school in the week and I was working all weekend every weekend I had to leave due to the damaging effect it was having on my family life ( I have children with SEN) I was gutted that I couldn't stay as the job itself was fun, challenging and rewarding with the customer satisfaction and the commission helped of course


Great job, challenging, rewarding


Not for working mothers, terrible work/home life

Area management make it toxic and stressful

My manager was good, the area manager had worked there for 3 weeks, and proceeded to swear at our staff, including myself. I was taught nothing, and was expected to complete tasks, then being remanded for not knowing. You are made to feel like a piece of dirt.


My manager was a nice man, average pay


Everything else

Fun place to work at

Friendly staff, can be competitive as you do get commission. Supervisor relatively easy job, just helping the staff when it gets busy (repens of stock), handling money etc.

Worst company in the UK.

I will never recommend anyone to work for that god-forsaking company. American visit/Management is only interested in sales. Nobody cares about the people. No training given, you will be given a book to read and memorise about the products. And if you are smart enough and speak out to the HR about what's happening in the store, they will get reed of you. It's the worst company I have ever work for in my life.


You will be paid correctly


Poor management practices, Fake products that don't last, Very Toxic environment.
