    I have been working at Footprint Retail Services

    Pros

    There are no pros for them.

    Cons

    I signed up with them, took a drug test and had documents notarized so I could work for them. The only time I received a call to work was at 8:30 one night, they wanted me to drive 90 miles the next morning to do some training. I told him I already had an appointment the next morning and could not go. I never heard from them again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie to people about the opportunities.

    I have been working at Footprint Retail Services full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I felt there were no pros for $12.00 an hour & $14.00 an hour as a Team Leader. Trust me ITS NOT WORTH THE TIME & energy you put into doing the paperwork & drug testing that must be done. I don't want to forget on the job training/orientation. There isn't any. I have nothing positive to say about this company.

    Cons

    Challenges. The way some of these Managers with the way the great some of these hard working employees. I feel they should be treated with respect no matter how hold they are. As I said above there job training/orientation is ridiculous. As for benefits you have to pay for your benefits up front out of your own pocket and there is no reimbursement. Who has that kind of money when your starting a new position. My suggestion go to a different company you will be much better off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up a job training/orientation of what that employee will be doing, not because it's convenient for you to place an employee anywhere and consider that Jon the job training. Take a look at your management staff no matter how long they have been there. Maybe it's time for upper management to get rid of the old who are set in there ways & BRING IN THE NEW WHO ARE WILLING TO LEARN!!!

    I worked at Footprint Retail Services as an intern

    Pros

    Most the employees were really nice, especially since I was one of the youngest people there. It was easy to get the hang of things once I went through training. They have "grill days" on a lot of Fridays where everyone brings in food to share for lunch, so it was nice to get to know everyone this way.

    Cons

    Some employees were horrible to work with and the job was really boring to me but I did not major in a related field to what I was doing. You sit looking at your computer screen for eight hours straight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let some of the employees below you do some of your work -- they're there for a reason.

    Pros

    Good pay compared to other companies in the business. Very nice district managers and team leads. Merchandising work as well as other projects including the Freestyle Coke training.

    Cons

    Not really negatives to working for footprint. The biggest complaint is they often do not have enough hours/work for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing. Management is great.

    Pros

    Flexible. You can choose nighttime shift or daytime shift
    Daytime shift starts at $10.00/hr ad Night starts 10.75/hr
    Part-time 32 hours a week. Good if your a student or if you have another part-time job.
    Friendly team lead and co-worker
    No experience needed; can easily be learned within a workday

    Cons

    You gotta drive to different Jewel-Osco location to do your merchandising work BUT you get paid 0.55 cents per mile and the farthest I driven was 15 miles so it's not too horrible.
