I worked at Finish Line

Pros

Discount, pretty coworkers, and gaining better people skills.

Cons

Impossible sales goals, constantly being talked down to, having to do too many tasks while head manager just does nothing but complain all day. At first I tried to take this job seriously, but after a while it just becomes a joke. You never have shoes people want to buy and if you do their size is never in stock. I remember days when my head manager would complain about me not selling enough stuff, but would put me on the cash register while he went on the floor to sell things and he doesn't work off commission. When another employee would ask my head manager how to do something on the computer he would just tell me to show them while he just glared out the door.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Come up with realistic goals. Actually have peoples shoe size. Stop expecting employees to have conversations with customers. Some customers just want to look without being talked to and I respect that and you should too.

    I worked at Finish Line

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Friendly co-workers. Amazing discount for employees. Very understanding when it comes to taking time off. Overall great place!

    Cons

    Sales goals are the worst. They force you to demonstrate shoe cleaning products, and that a lot of the time means rejection from customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was wonderful. I really never had any serious issues with my managers. They were very helpful and understanding towards me.
