    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.

    The owner and president are uneducated and do not know how to run a business or manage employees. They also have tried to make it a family business with unsafe, convicted, family members.
    You are REQUIRED to work 6 days a week and still be available during your off hours.

    Pros

    - A lot of great people to work with
    - Good benefits

    Cons

    - no upward movement
    - boys club
    - they say they are work/life balance, but its very pick and choose who gets to take advantage of work/life balance.
    - upper management waste money on silly things, but decreases bonus and takes away events that employees look forward too.

    Advice to Management

    - stop wasting money and listen to your employees
    - spend money on training managers and supervisors
    - if you offer work/life balance then truly offer it to all employees

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

    Pros

    Discount
    Flexible hours
    Dress Code
    Free stuff from merchandisers

    Cons

    Retail
    Horrible upper management
    Unrealistic Expectations
    Vastly Under Paid

    Advice to Management

    Treat your store employees with respect... pay them what their worth. Very simple task, but you had extremely poor execution. Listen to the advice they give you regarding their individual store. And please do not act like you know better when you are not in the store 60+ hours a week.
