    I worked at Finish Line full-time

    Pros

    Freedom to hire train and develop talent. Good benefits and awesome perks/bonuses for high performing managers.

    Work hard and apply yourself, sky is the limit with companies like Finish Line who promote within.

    Pros

    The best thing about Finish Line is the discount on merchandise.

    Cons

    They tend to pay management on the lower side of retail, more similar to fast food. They have a very high turn over so it makes networking difficult.

    I have been working at Finish Line full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Connecting with different types of people
    - Leading a team
    - Not many

    Cons

    - Retail
    - You're selling shoes, and after a while, you think you're selling a cure for cancer the way management pressures you to get a sale.
    - No incentives; basic/low bonus program for management.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back commission to increase sales and the drive, or cut the crap and chill out. Not many will sell shoes for min. wage with no incentive!

    Pros

    Highlight of any retail job would have to be the employees that you work with and this applies the same for FinishLine in the years that I worked there. Very flexible with schedules yet very limited with handing out hours, as always it will always reflect the performance of last year's numbers. It started off with base + commissions for assistant manager but in my last year the top dogs implemented bonuses, which is a blessing and a curse. A curse of course if you work at a store that have normally poor traffic and conversion of sales.

    Cons

    Management, benefits and overtime restrictions in ratio to the back end workload.

    Advice to Management

    Invest not just in your Store Managers but also everyone else below.
