    Pros

    30% discount on all merchandise, 401k for all employees, and employees are friendly and welcoming.

    Cons

    Minimum wage, no salary increases, very low sales commission (1%), and low weekly hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers are very demanding and can be condescending at times when a Sales Associate fails it meet their daily goals in spite of a genuine effort. Employees will appreciate and support management's goals when all their effort and work are recognized.

    Pros

    If you have a very good manager he or she will train you to be the best. The discount is about the only good thing you have here.

    Cons

    Company does not care about the employees safety. Very hostile work environment and seems like only men work, hardly ever hire any woman. Hours are a joke most part timers get 9 hours a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more hands on. Stop doing your visits only 3 to 4 times a year.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at Footlocker honestly is the employee discount and first dibs on shoes IF your manager allows.

    Cons

    The pay at this company is HORRID. Whoever says it isn't is lying to your face. The pay x expectations is just terrible. As an assistant I made $8.75 plus 2% commission. You might see the commission on your check and you might not. As an assistant I dealt with conversion, add on sales, doing morning paperwork every morning, conference calls while the store was busy, closing paperwork, Tues & Thurs shipment by myself until someone came into work in the afternoon to help (shipment could consist of 30-90 cases). Stock room management, sunday payroll processing, weekly window display changes etc before even thinking about dealing with customers. This job wears on you mentally and it takes forever to move up within the company. I believe that the only people in this company are the one's that settle and are just to lazy to look for something new. You also deal with transfers that you aren't told of until they happen and you either accept or take a demotion. No matter how you leave the company, resign giving your 2 weeks or mutual agreement you are listed as un-rehireable out of spite. This company is great for children that like shoes but not for an adult looking to make a living

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less expectation for the terrible pay

    I worked at Foot Locker

    Pros

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

    Cons

    You 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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop 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.
