    I worked at Good Feet (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company just added 401K and health benefits if you enjoy helping people its a great job

    Cons

    Owners are not always equitable and you play by their rules which tend to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the customer and the employee both are assets and remember if you kill the Golden goose because you don't nurture it where will you get your golden eggs...

    I worked at Good Feet part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are absolutely no pros whatsoever to this awful company! To push a product that costs 300.00 and not offer a money back guarantee is a scandal!

    Cons

    To work for an agency that takes advantage of people's problems and then profits from them is shameful. To see people who are suffering and sell them a product that promises miracles, only to have their problems made worst is enough to make any salesperson uncomfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are confident in your product (which I doubt) you should offer people a money back guarantee!

    I have been working at Good Feet full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It is a pleasure to work with a product that makes such a profound difference in a client's life! It is truly life changing!! The arch support system has a life time guarantee and are excellent products. The comfort shoe line is extensive and a demand product for today's lifestyles.

    Cons

    Retail hours are not flexible with family life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more employees due to the fact that each client has a personal shopping experience.

    Customers were great! Franchise owners were absolutely clueless when it comes to running a business.

    Pros

    Product works, hours are family friendly.

    Cons

    Product is far too overpriced and franchise owners only care about the potential profit of business, not the needs of public. Owners are not very good at promoting company to community. No benefits for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You REALLY need to screen your franchise applicants better. Inexperienced ones only alienate your potential clientele, in turn costing everyone involved time & money.

    I worked at Good Feet full-time

    Pros

    Easy work, no high pressure sales tactics needed. The customer either get relief during the one on one consultation, or not. If they get relief, they usually buy.

    Cons

    The crew. Manager/assistant manager do not lead by example. No consistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep better tabs on the people running the stores. There's a lot that goes on that shouldn't.

    Pros

    Free supports if you work over 90 days

    Cons

    Horrible management. Dishonest and incompetent. They do not view customers as people. THey don't care what the customers issue is, they just want the sale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees and customers like people.

    Pros

    The product is great! Helping people feel better is rewarding for sure.

    Cons

    The compensation is the bottom of the barrel for specialty retail sales. Very high turnover because of no room for advancement- very low glass ceiling for retail. The CEO (owner) keeps trying to come up with something new yet has an altered vision of what actually works on a customer level. Accounting runs certain franchises so the customer experience can be stunted even though they train for good customer service- it's just a theory and numbers always trump customer service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the competition are custom orthotics, not another Good Feet franchise so quite price hiking! Eventually you will ruin your reputation by price gauging- reputation is already becoming tho
    Is way. The owners are profiting highly but the employee compensation is flat, therefore you will lose your talented individuals and it takes years to become great!!

    I worked at Good Feet full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Quick Start and good opportunity earnings for new sales persons. Did not provide consistent opportunity to improve sales skills, poor communication from ownership to employee.

    Cons

    Company is not interested in growth and development of existing employees outside the corporate level. Job security is not performance based.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop long term employees
