    Pros

    There is nothing positive about my experience.

    Cons

    Incorrect pay, long hours with no breaks, POS issues. Don't waste your time. It's hard to be successful when not given the means to do so.

    I worked at Finish Line full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, unlimited vacation, benefits, 401k match

    Cons

    Horrible leadership, never received full bonuses, people were scared to speak up because they'd be fired. And it really was a trickle down effect from the C-level execs that make the next level so bad.

    Advice to Management

    Your managers know way more than you think. Empower them and let them thrive.

    Pros

    Good company, straight forward with their expectations. Pretty easy to learn, although they need to train managers better before submerging them into the leadership role.

    Cons

    They need to start providing more training to new management instead of asking us to lead and develop our team without managers being properly trained to manage and develop associates.

    I worked at Finish Line full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Worked there for 9 years and PTO accumulated faster the longer you had been with the company, regardless of position. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Pay seemed to decrease over the years and they lost many employees that had been around for a long time. By the time I left, there were associates that were being paid just as much some of the managers because of commission and the pay structure.

    Advice to Management

    Value the employees that have been around. Make sure those that aren't in the store, yet are making decisions that impact those that are, have store experience or at least consult with the stores.
