Wolverine World Wide Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Wolverine World Wide, Inc. or Wolverine Worldwide, is a publicly traded American footwear manufacturer based in Rockford, Michigan. The shoemaker is known for its eponymous brand, Wolverine Boots and Shoes, as well as other brands, such as Hush Puppies and Merrell. The company also manufactures licensed footwear for other firms, such as Caterpillar and Harley-Davidson. In 2012, Wolverine World Wide added Saucony, Keds, Stride Rite and Sperry Top-Sider to its list of brands, after acquiring the Performance Lifestyle Group of Collective Brands in a $1.23 billion transaction that also involved the sale of Payless ShoeSource and Collective Licensing International to private equity firms Blum Capital Partners and Golden Gate Capital.

A former employee in the management department said, "Toxic - can't trust anyone. Leadership keeps secrets from the CEO and all areas operate in a silo. Major turnover of Presidents and Sr. Leaders. Layoffs - they have layoffs almost every year and I am not talking about because of COVID. Do your research. In 2019 alone they must have had 10 rounds of layoffs. They do them small enough as to not get attention to the public or wall street. If the leadership doesn't like you, watch out. They grab you before you get to your desk, make you sign a paper, then you are gone. No trust in the CEO - it's weird, all the Sr. Leaders hide the truth and rearrange the facts. They act like they like him but behind his back, can't wait till he leaves."

"Wolverine world wide is no longer a company within the area. I worked there over 5 years. When they went down hill and had to adjust shifts giving people a chioce change shifts or quit with minimum payout and ridding of anyone that didn't work to their agenda, I lost faith in the company. Surprised they lasted years after."

Retail Store Manager (Former Employee) says

"Normal work week, weekends, holidays, overtime. Learned about the show business. Upper management was very difficult to get a hold of and there was not communication at all. Workplace culture was full of stress and unprofessional.Sales and KPI's were easily accomplishedLack of Upper management communication"

Sales Associate/ Cashier (Former Employee) says

Packer (Current Employee) says

"I worked for WWW in BR over the summer and it is honestly a terrible place. The hours are long, OT is suddenly sprung upon you, (I don't mind the extra hours) and the people that work there are all very rude and unintelligent. I've worked in a few factories, and honestly the only way to describe most of the workers is "white trash" because they are the scum you see climbing out from under rocks when something happens that they want to see in town.Four 10 minute breaks and a 30 minute lunch, alot of hoursNasty building, very hot, awful people, belligerent passive-aggressive supervisor"

ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee) says

"Stride right is a good place for a starting manager. Teaches you the basics about selling and running a team. For the young people, its a good place."

SALES REP (Current Employee) says

"Just really poor management to be honest. No hours. but you get to talk to a lot of people if youre into that like I am. They only give you hours depending on if you sell from my knowledge, but at the same time they make you work in the back, so its really hard to say.Customer serviceHorrible management."

Sales Associate (Former Employee) says

"I was very optimistic when I first stated, until I started having issue with a coworker whom I was presented to me as a assistant manager. This Co worker had an issue with me always coming in early, when I worked with her I wasn't allowed to help with any tasks, when I asked if there was anything I could do instead of standing around, she would just look at me with annoyances. I had spoke with the store manager about these interactions with this Co-Worker early on and she told me that she would try to schedule us apart for the most part, but this didn't happen all the time. The hardest part of going to work was the will to go in when I knew I would be working with her. I really was not able to enjoy the work environment to much concerning I just wanted out, I really couldn't believe some one like that had the ability to work with people so closely. I learned that I should of brought all incidences past the store manager and to home office. she is very lucky if she is still with the company.not working aside one of my co-workersworking with a bad co-worker"

Store Manager (Former Employee) says

"Since the company was sold multiple times it has no direction. Management has no idea what is going on half the time. Company does not like to hire within so there is no growth. People in upper management positions are not interested in their employees only customer service scores. Hours are being cut all the time and tasks are always multiplying. Stores are understaffed and moral is low,"

Warehouse Employee (Former Employee) says

"On the Friday of my second week there, they called me before work saying they didnt need me anymore. Dont on working here if you want a job that lasts longer than two weeks."
