    Easy work to get accomplished. The overall company atmosphere in my department was good. I did not like it though.

    Pros

    Working at the Macy's shop you get discounts at Finish Line, Macy's and Bloomingdale's !!

    Typical inconsistent retail hours. No yearly bonuses or raises for part-time associates. Only managers are considered full-time even if you consistently work over 30 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with employees about the amount of hours that are available.

    I worked at Finish Line part-time

    Pros

    You get to be around shoes and see new releases. Wow

    Cons

    You make 0. I busted my butt proved that I could sell more shoes, clothing, accessories. Still added to almost nothing. I also had a manager steal my spiff. 5.00 ( you rarely ever got one).. I knew he stole it because he typed it in under his account, was not reflected on my pay. They use a waiter scheme for selling merchandise. You have to earn past 7.25 in order to break minimal wage. Here sometimes you weren't even on the floor to sell, and it was rare To see many hours break minimal.

    Advice to Management

    You make millions. You started a brand new store and trend. Finish line outlet @tanger outlets myrtle beach. You had a jerk who got fired later command the whole operation. Yet you had your big wig corps fly in show off in there fur coats and fancy wear as were all busting our butts.
    It's called take action treat your employees like you want to make money with them.
    The start at 0 earn your sales to make more than 7.25 is garbage.

    Pros

    You are encouraged to build relationships with customers. Talk to them. And are coached along with your team.

    Cons

    Selling sof sole (sneaker cleaning) products and keeping number averages above average are a necessity. (I.e. Average dollar transaction and people who bought multiple items. ) Your hours are based on performance. And you are encouraged to outdo yourself and your team mates every week. You are encouraged to outdo yourself and your team mates every week.

    Pros

    It was a great experience. My training went well, and it didn't take very long to get in the swing of things. They're not stingy with hours as long as you're doing your job.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons at the moment.

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I worked at Finish Line part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The job was great for a young adult because it was pretty flexible. The opportunity to work came over time but once you put in your work and proved that you could see you could get as many hours as you wanted. It worked out very well for me during the holiday seasons.

    Cons

    The hours can tend to become overwhelming and while the pay is decent for a high school or college student it isn't a great paying job if you are looking for a company to stay with for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on ways to incentivize employees with more than the sales based rewards that are generally only attainable in large geographic regions. Finding a way to increase employee productivity can increase dramatically if they actually enjoy their job and can see some reward even if it's a team outing at a restaurant or buying lunch for the staff.
