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

    Pros

    The best part about this job is the discount. You meet some cool people but the company itself doesn't care for their employees.

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid . This company doesn't care about the little people that keep things going. Warehouse workers are looked down on.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better

    I worked at Finish Line part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My manager was the best guy I've ever worked for. He truly cared about his team and his guests. The guy motivated everyone to be better than they were capable of.

    Cons

    Corporate could care less about the stores. They always said that they wanted to maximize their team but in reality just their sales. Worked at a small store in Carmel and they only cared about profit. $5 an hour plus commission was a joke when they changed their commission. Never earned more than 7.25 trying to convert so many customers. I was completely motivated when they gave dollar incentives to insoles and socks, then they changed everything to 1%. For shoes that's ok, but to tell a $20 or $35 insole and only get 35 cents for that was a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Keep motivating the team. That in reality was the only reason I enjoyed working there. Would have ran through a brick wall for my manager Dave.

    Pros

    Flexible with school schedules, laid back atmosphere, fairly non-strenuous physically (do have to climb ladders)

    Cons

    Blatant disregard for safety protocol (forced to climb "do not climb" labeled shelves), not paid as much as coworkers with less experience than myself.
    Not honest about when/how raises or evaluations work (3 years no raise, differing answers on how to get one)

    Advice to Management

    Follow safety protocol, listen to sales associates who actually do the selling for the company. If we say something does not work/impedes our ability to do our job, listen

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

    Pros

    Helps develop your interpersonal skills. They teach some simple but fairly effective sales techniques.

    Cons

    Poorly run on the corporate side. Had huge losses in 2015. Management structure is pretty weak. Quality of the assistant managers really makes or breaks a store.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay to attract better talent. Empower your employees more i.e. Store manager, ASM's, and sales associates.

    Pros

    Great company and the discount was great, also loved what the company stood for and their ethics, I highly recommend this to anyone.

    Cons

    I enjoyed finish line but their healthcare plan wasn't that great along with the dental so other than that it was a great experience.

    Advice to Management

    Always treat your employees well and they will work better and more efficiently, and also just take better care of workers.

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

    Pros

    I learned valuable communication skills through this position interacting with customers to find their needs and wants. It was a friendly work environment geared towards a young adult workforce. This is definitely a part-time job position and do not expect to make a career out of it.

    Cons

    The pay was awful. I was paid $4 and hour plus 1% commission on sales. This is supposed to be an incentive to encourage hard work to make more commission but it was almost impossible to even reach the minimum wage threshold. So essentially I made minimum wage which is obviously required by law.

    Advice to Management

    I would say to increase the wage and keep commission if you want to encourage your employees to sell more.
