Current Employee - Assistant Manager Finish Line in Canton, OH
Current Employee - Assistant Manager Finish Line in Canton, OH

I have been working at Finish Line full-time

Pros

-Great for learning communication skills and exercising the effectiveness of product knowledge.
-Discount is useful (When allowed to be used).
-Opportunity to meet good people.

Cons

(This depends greatly on the management focus in the store)
-Asked to work extended hours on little to no notice with no regard to personal plans.
-Training takes longer than it should.
-Large amount of dissatisfaction and blame when results aren't as expected.
-The sales results you do have will never be good enough. Even on a gain.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- You have a great opportunity to teach people the basics of sales and management. Don't let the wrong people represent that opportunity.

- Make the X store feature more streamline, customers want transactions to be FASTER once they have picked out everything they want.

- Management sets the mood for employees, employees set the mood for customers. Remember that.

    I worked at Finish Line full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great for learning how to sell item. Also a great stepping stone for a overall selling job.

    Cons

    I was promised managment 2 times and both times they brought someone else in to fill the position. Also pay raises were supposed to be based on selling performance, but every time raises came around i was bumped the same as everyone else even though my selling average was 2 times as much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you say something about becoming manager or higher then keep the promise made and do not bring in other people to fill that position. Also if pay raises are based on performance then why are they all the same? keep your promises, it might cost more but trust me moral will be much higher and people will work a lot harder.
