    Lack of Loyalty In Upper Management

    Pros

    Finish Line truly is a great place to work, especially for those trying to get into retail management. There are ample opportunities at the store level because of a previous lack of talent, and the company now making the right moves to identify the right kind of people to promote. If you can stay organized and focused, you can still have a great work life balance while working alongside some incredible people.

    Cons

    At the corporate level there is a large emphasis coming down to the stores on training and developing our people. However, that's not put into practice by Store Managers and DM's. I've seen really smart individuals leave this company because they were not given the respect they deserved. By respect I mean, that we put our lives and career futures into our DM and RVPs hands, and that kind of loyalty and trust is not often reciprocated. I know of a young man I worked with in another state who had to ask for months to get a interview to be promoted to a MIT, a position he already held, and when he finally did, his respective DM didn't respond to him for weeks. The interview was left on the promise that the process would continue to ensure his promotion. If this was an outside candidate interviewing for the same position contact would have been made and kept immediately following the interview. The company is doing the right things to seek out and recruit the right talent, but once they become a part of this team, the loyalty and dedication to every individual is very saddening. It's a great company with a good future, but they will continue to lose their smartest leaders while they continue to focus their energy on outside hires, and not building trust and loyalty from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The most important thing you have to do every day is TRAIN. Do not ever underestimate the importance of this. Yes you have to make the day, but that can only be consistently achieved through diligent and developed training methods.

    I have been working at Finish Line part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great customers and the discount is pretty good too.

    Cons

    Lousy lazy management that lacks work ethic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to DM and store management. I've been with the company for many years and I've seen management transition immensely and not for the best either.

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

    Pros

    30% employee discount... need I say more? I basically had this job for the discount alone. Very casual and laid back except for Christmas and tax free weekend, other than that the job was a piece of cake.

    Cons

    Really pushed us to sell subpar accessories. Its difficult to sell a cheap product that is basically useless. Wish they would reconsider the overall value of their name brand accesories.
