    I worked at Foot Locker part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    30% discount on all merchandise, 401k for all employees, and employees are friendly and welcoming.

    Cons

    Minimum wage, no salary increases, very low sales commission (1%), and low weekly hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers are very demanding and can be condescending at times when a Sales Associate fails it meet their daily goals in spite of a genuine effort. Employees will appreciate and support management's goals when all their effort and work are recognized.

    I worked at Foot Locker part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    30% discounts, first hand pick on new released sneakers.

    Cons

    Very little pay for cashiers. You have to be able to sale too but the commission does not go to you. It's basically like you're doing free extra work. Also for sales associates, sometimes it can be slow or your co-workers will be greedy and take some of your sales. That's why I hate jobs based on commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organize your stores so every employee can eat! Meaning make sure everyone stays in their section so everyone can make money. Don't have someone from the kids section coming to the mens section because that section makes more money! As far as cashiers just pay them more especially if they have to sell too, otherwise have them work less. Minimum wage went up! Also store mangers, keep the schedules organized. Sometimes they wouldn't have people on the schedule (like a cashier) so they would have to call people in.

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, easy work tasks, employee discount, like my co workers and managers.

    Cons

    Little room for growth, unfair pay/commission, horrible hour/breaks, no recognition for hard work. Overall, cheap company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the pay. Learn that if you take care of your employees, your employees will take care of you.

    Ok place to work in the beginning...

    I worked at Foot Locker

    Pros

    Decent employee discount, builds communication skills, friendly employees, always room for promotions

    Cons

    Management is questionable, shady employees, never value your hard work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay on top of today's trends. Some managers are stuck in the 90s often pushing away certain customers. Have an open mind and stop being so stuck up when a customer questions something that may seem silly to you
