    Pros

    No matter the location the co workers were always really nice and fun to work with. The actual job it's self isn't so difficult, as long as customer service come easy to you.

    Cons

    It is customer service... so if you aren't a people person, or don't handle customer interaction well, then this isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    Take your associates schedules to consideration. Respect hours of availability and there is no reason why they shouldn't preform for you and your store.

    Pros

    Fast paced, great ordering system, great bonus package, product is tailored to fit the demand of the area the store is located.

    Cons

    Got away from the bread and butter, tends to catch onto trends too late. The assistant manager pay could be better.

    Advice to Management

    There'sa need to compete and outsell the competition when available. Go back to getting PEs that everyone wants and listen to store management teams on what sells where.

    Pros

    The Finish Line really pushed my capabilites. The management staff really wanted our employees to want to work. It was a fun environment. It was definitely different because the mall we worked at was a tourist attraction, so we met all sorts of people from tourists who don't speak a lick of English, to celebrities that are very well-known. Meeting all the cool people was probably the best part about it.

    Cons

    Some bad experiences I've had with The Finish Line, is outside of our immediate management staff, upper corporate management ONLY cared about our numbers, and if we didn't hit our numbers, it would be our fault. The only problem with that was like I mentioned, we were in a tourist mall. The majority of our customers did not speak English so we had a language barrier and we have lost some customers due to it, but we tried our best to find ways around it. When we tell upper corporate management the issues we're having, instead of helping us find a way to work around it, they just told us: "You guys just need to keep pushing then, no excuses." It was rough but we did manage to work around it, but it would've been nice to receive some help.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee comes up to you and describes their issues, please know that they are coming to you looking for some kind of guidance.
