I thought that working at Payless would be a fun experience--what girl wouldn't want to work with shoes?Well, working at the Great Lakes Crossing Mall location was a nightmare.

Not only do I have to deal with angry customers more often because their shoes are of poor quality, but items get stolen more often, my boss takes advantage of her job benefits, and I had to give up my 4th of July to work there WITHOUT holiday pay because they only pay holiday pay to full time employees.

This is not the way a company should treat their employees--it makes us feel like we are not at all appreciated or desired at the store.My advice: DO NOT WORK OR SHOP AT PAYLESS.

I currently work at Payless and they literally forgot to pay us today or something...they're switching to bi-weekly pay at the end of the month but weren't supposed to start it yet. Nobody has gotten paid yet. BS.

I work at Payless too. I heard it was because there was no money to pay their lower level employees, so they had to get a loan to pay us.

I got fired for being sick with a doctors note when I come to work on time and do my job good everytime I was there.

I have worked for Payless almost a year now and it is one of the best jobs I have had.My manager has become my confidant and friend we even go on double dates with our significant others.

My mom even works at the store with me part time so its fun when people realize the connection. It was annoying that I was working full time hours from the get go and I wasn't getting the pay or benefits of full time people but when we moved to the super store in Kansas I was promoted and I love everything that comes with it.

Its not a hard job you know what you get yourself into right off the only hard parts are having to clean up after rude people or angry customers but its retail.Seriously hour breaks very flexible schedule and weekly pay what more could you ask for.

I totally agree we get little pay for all the things they ask us to do give us no credit on good work we do and to top it off get horrible hours since the manager gets 50+ hours not fair at all

Evidently this is corporate policy to treat employees this way.I DO NOT work for this company but I have a relative that does and the issues are identical.

Manager changes employee time sheets, leaves early and then changes her time, she clocks her employees in and out before they have ever shown up for work.

Seems like they are trained to do this.Keeps the employee pull rotating and they save on $$

not working for Payless you know very little about the company. We are not trained to cheat people or the company. That person should have been fired but because part timers did not speak up it does not get caught but eventually the person will be caught
