    I worked at Finish Line full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working for this company. I worked at 4 locations in 2 cities from ages 16-21. This company believes in inside promotions, in addition to rewarding good behavior and increase in sales.

    Cons

    Getting time off around the holidays is a bit frustrating (no surprise though, it's retail), also you can be a sales associate and have more education and skills than you AM or GM.

    I have been working at Finish Line part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Training isn't just about something you can use in the store, it's also something you can use outside of the company. The company is very well structured. They want you to be about the people. It's not so much about the numbers like most companies, it's about being a well rounded company.

    Cons

    Some managers aren't consistent with rules. It's very hard to move up. Associates are overlooked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more praise towards the associates. Without the associates, management wouldn't be getting the bonuses they do. We are overlooked at times. Especially those who repeatedly put up awesome numbers in the district.

    I have been working at Finish Line part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, Fun environment, managers respect their employees, competitive yet fun, discounts are a plus

    Cons

    Pay is low for SAs. Usually have to work every Saturday

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider offering promotions to SAs to AM based on numbers, and pay higher than 1/3/5% on the commission.
