    Finish Line was a great place to work, but as with most retail it could get demanding for little pay.

    I have been working at Finish Line full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive benefits package (401(k), Employee Stock Purchase Plan, PTO, etc.). Good pay structure. Great experience in a sales environment, excellent training.

    Cons

    Very time consuming, can sometimes be difficult to get time off, frequently had to work 50+ hours a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your managers for extra hours worked or don't tell them that they have to work more then 50 hours in a week as that is pretty outrageous.
