How do you want to work?

We offer a unique blend of entrepreneurial spirit and Collective strength.

We know our associates are the ones who make our success possible. We are committed to attracting, hiring and retaining the best and most diverse talent in the industry and developing you professionally – for your own benefit and for the Collective benefit.

We believe that diversity means more than just cultural and ethnic backgrounds. True diversity means embracing the breadth of thought, experience, knowledge, background and opinion of all people. We create an inclusive workplace that celebrates the individual diversity of our team members.

Associates describe our culture as fun, hard working and collaborative. They’re attracted to the clarity of strategy and Collective alignment behind the company’s vision, mission and strategy. The pace is lightning fast. Expectations are high.

If you truly want to understand the culture at Collective Brands, take a look at our Guiding Principles. More than 1,000 of our associates were involved in creating these principles based not just on their own ideals, but also on what they experience every day.

Together as a team, and individually as team members, we will passionately:


Delight the Customer — we will act with the Customer in mind and deliver a great experience by anticipating the marketplace and exceeding expectations.


Show Respect — we will value everyone in all aspects of our business and embrace differences to cultivate an inspiring, fun and productive atmosphere.


Inspire Possibilities — we will deliver creative and innovative ideas in order to continuously improve; and by embracing change we will learn and grow.


Deliver Excellence — we will be accountable to achieve results through consistent execution and quality in everything we do for our stakeholders.


Do What's Right — we will act with courage, demonstrate honest and ethical behavior and be responsible to our Customers, our shareholders, our communities and each other.
