    Pros

    Get to meet many different people.
    learn about shoes.
    30% discount.

    Cons

    Terrible pay.
    5.00 base pay +commision
    unless you are making at least a grand every shift and are receiving alot of hours, you will barely get paid $300 every 2 weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. My Management was great.

    I worked at Finish Line part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The discount was great, the sales associates worked together and got along great. The environment was very fun. I like the non-commision style pay.

    Cons

    Management needs some cleaning up, some not all. Pay can be a little better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check in with your sales associates because we are usually the first point of contact in the store. Our smiles, our faces. Management needs to understand that. And leave there personal problems at the door.

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

    Pros

    It's very flexible, considering most of us were students. The manager was fair, the best manager I've had in any job. I was shy but gained a lot of customer service experience, communication skills, growth in my selling skills. Met a lot of new people, gained relationships with frequent customers. Get a 30% discount on everything in the store,

    Cons

    We were only given 1% commission on sales. It was a smaller store, so not much opportunity for promotions. Considering it was an entry level job, not really a career, the pay is not much. Get paid bi-weekly. Holidays are extremely hectic
