Shoe Sales Associate Job Overview


Shoe sales associates work mainly in department stores. They assist customers in selecting shoes that will please them in terms of fit, style and cost.

Shoe sales associates are expected to be effective salesperson, and those who do well may move on to a sales manager position. Sometimes, wages can be augmented by a commission system.

Shoe Sales Associate Education Requirements


There is no set of minimum qualifications for a shoe sales associate, but many employers prefer to see a high school diploma or GED certificate.
