    A great company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosgreat part time evening hours, commission, training. The company also gives a nice discount and occassional family and friends days.

    ConsYou are always on your feet, there are a lot of high school students and it's their first job so you are dealing with some immature teenagers on a daily basis

    Foot Locker's gave me the opportunity to flourish and succeed as a unique individual.

    PT Sales Associate (Current Employee) Aurora, CO

    ProsYou get paid to love shoes and talk to people it doesn't get much better than that.

    ConsMeeting your sells goals and pushing yourself to be competitive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI'm looking to work as much as I can with regards to my ever-changing Footlocker schedule through the Winter and Summer when I'm not schooling. Nights and early mornings are good time periods for me to work as much as you deem fit, and I do know quite a bit about checking in and running stock.

    The company is energetic and constantly looking for ways to grow and improve.

    Store Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsThe company really likes to promote from within. So, if you want to move up the corporate ladder, they will help make it happen.

    ConsLow pay, especially compared to other companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think the employees would do a lot better if so much was not placed on the store manager. They get stuck working 60 hour weeks and everyone else in the store gets their hours cut. Stop cutting hours in stores- especially smaller volume stores where the only person left to work is the store manager.

    Poor compensation

    District Manager In Training (Current Employee) Arlington, TX

    ProsRelationships you build with co workers & cuatomers. Exciting product no doubt. Discount is good but you won't always get a discount on some releases

    ConsThe pay is horrible. You can make more money managing a McDonald's & for part time associates it is WORSE!!! The commission sucks..1% part time & 2% for Full timers. The company pushes for high performance but the way you are compensated you won't make much more than the poor performers. DMs, RVPs & HR are pathetic, they don't care & act as if YOU should feel blessed to have the job. You basically are giving the company a discount to work there just to get a discount on shoes. If you choose to work at Footlocker, be sure you get into reselling, hooking up clientele & anything else you can think of to hustle money cause they are NOT going to pay you what you are worth.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop fatting your own pockets! The CEO made over 40 million last year while thw avg employee barely makes 8 an hr???? This is a pyramid top heavy company where only those at the top get taken care of while the large portion on bottom get nothing.

    ProsYou get a 30% discount on all products, easy hours, easy job. shoes sell themselves.

    Conssales associates make minimum wage with a 1% commission on whatever you sell. you have to move up if you want to make more money.

    Advice to Senior Managementkeep doing what you are doing.
