    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Wittner Shoes part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The monthly stock drops of beautiful shoes. Especially during Winter, the boots sell themselves. - Very supportive cluster manager for the Brisbane region. - Very Supportive State Regional Manger for Queensland. - If you love what you do and strive to do your best for this company they will be very encouraging and supportive.

    Cons

    - Markdown heavy, big stock drops. - I worked as a Brand Ambassador in a David Jones store and often I would be on by myself to serve customers in the whole shoe department. Which meant selling Men's/Women's shoes whilst having to fit school shoes for children.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Wittner Shoes part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    50% off semi decent shoes

    Cons

    Bad management style. No concern for personal growth. Manager's are bias and never want to genuinely help staff. They only do that they think is right. They make staff work when they are sick (with medical cert) just because they do not have enough staff to cover. They don't allow you to take leave without pay. The management talks about support and team growth, but only managers are included in team events. No concern for the wellbeing of their staff
