Doesn't Recommend
Approves of CEO

I worked at Foot Locker full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

30% off mostly anything.
Satisfaction of knowing that you helped a customer!

Cons

Pay is unacceptable! Minumum wage for PTers.
No annual pay increase. (Some associates worked there for years and still only made minumum wage.)
Hours are not steady
Little room for promotions.
Deal with people nasty attitudes and the management does nothing about it!

Advice to Management

Treat people like you want to be treated.
Just because you're in a higher rank doesn't give you the right to talk to your employees any kind of ways. That leads to a troubled working environment. Increase the level in professionalism.

    I worked at Foot Locker part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Started making commission pretty quickly. Flexible hours working around my study schedule. The job is what you would expect, nothing too hard, just sell shoes.

    Cons

    Managers were reasonable but the district manager ruled by fear and intimidation. If the store manager is competent and sales are good, there is no need to micromanage and overscrutinize the little things

    Advice to Management

    Increase the commission for top regional sellers. I broke two store records for daily sales and all I got was a print out certificate. How about a cash bonus? Reward your employees if you want them motivated.
