    I have been working at Finish Line part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    If busy commission can be good
    Fairly relaxed depending on mgmt
    Better than many retail stores
    You get to see the newest styles before anyone else

    Cons

    They have no DC so you spend a lot of time doing "send-sales"
    If it is not busy the pay is super weak
    They changed the pay and gave us less of an incentive to "up-sale" on particular products, yet they still get upset whenever you do not make an effort to sell those products
    You have to deal with a very shady group of individuals that have an infatuation with "retro" shoes, and they can be very intimidating and aggressive if they are not pleased with the situation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although not having a Distribution Center seems to be a core part of your Business Plan, in my opinion you will no longer be able to grow or compete with the Foot Locker empire until you have a Distribution Center.
    Stop altering the pay-rate because you have had a lot great employees that leave every week because of it.

    I worked at Finish Line

    Pros

    . You learn how to sell though, which is valuable in the business world, customer interactions vary, having to make the employee either versatile in treatment of the customer can help you in the long run. Lots of grunt work which disciplines.

    Cons

    Lots and lots of focus on sales and not on customer interaction and relationship building. Depressing work environment.

    Pros

    It was great to be around shoes and I really enjoyed interacting with customers every day.

    Cons

    I didn't like how the stock room was almost always disorganized and I found out that my assistant managers were stealing from the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep all associates involved and really work to make sure the stock room is easy to navigate and keep it clean.
