Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Milwaukee, WI

I have been working at Finish Line

Pros

30% Discount
Jeans, T-Shirt and Athletic shoes dress code
Free shoes every so often from vendors
Great vacation, and heatlh benefits

Cons

Conversion, Conversion, Conversion!
Too many expectations with customer service i.e. GO TEAM
Not able to properly discipline associates at store level (Terminating bad attitude employees)
Executive Management only criticizes, never rewards good performance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If Upper level management (DM's) actually took the time to coach and develop store and assistant management instead of always criticizing bad store sales metrics it would help encourage more pride and understanding in achieving these goals. The company changes directions too frequently in how to service the customer and store employees are expected to just do it at the snap of a finger. Corporate needs to wake up and learn that if you want tried and true emplyee performance you need to understand that the store staff are human beings and not machines. Praise and compliments go a LONG way...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lighten up on your employees. Lower the managment work standards. Decent career if you don't have a family.

    Cons

    Depending on your store location, product selection is sometimes limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wider variety of products
