Pros

The job is not difficult or strain you too much. The customers are generally nice, if you bring back what they are needing.

Cons

The pay is not as high as it should be. You don't make very much commission, because most shoes are less that 80 dollars and you only make one percent commission.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't get too comfortable with your job. Many managers slack off and the other employees work harder than they do. You're not irreplaceable, and one day a sales associate will replace you.

    Team environment great; company promotion is based on favoritism, not results. Ugly politics happening here.

    I worked at Finish Line

    Pros

    Excellent team support
    Environment supportive of training and education
    Reasonable work-life balance

    Cons

    Management does not understand their customers
    Corporate culture poisoned by dirty politics and favoritism
    Hard work and proven results are not recognized
    Instead, workers who spend their time brown-nosing are promoted
    Management unable to see employees misrepresent their numbers to make bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less favoritism, focus on actual results. Are the employees performing? Great. Reward them.
    When your employees come to you with numbers and claim they've made bonus, double-check them! Ask for the source! Don't assume they're being honest about it and that your web analytics tool must just be broken!
