Brown Shoe Co. Employee
in Elko, NV

"Pros: not a thing.Cons: everything about this company.I have never walked out of a job in my life until this one. The company has ridiculous expectations and crazy policies. They micromanage you to death and don't actually let their managers manage. The training is a joke. I guess this would be the perfect job for those who don't like to think for themselves and want no challenge except trying to figure out who's stealing shoes. On top of all of that they spy on your Facebook and other social media."
