    Pros

    Great , it's a great vibe with people and the team is all about the customers and making them happy and making money for our store.

    Cons

    The only con would be just when it's a lot of associates in the store hard to make it reach your goals

    Pros

    They offer a great discount. You're able to build long-lasting relationships with customers. Opportunity to network with other employees from different stores.

    Cons

    If you don't network, it may be hard for upward mobility; all about who you know. This may go for other jobs, but if you want to have a ranking, you have to develop relationships. As Asst. Manager, you basically manage the store.

    Advice to Management

    Stay positive.

    I worked at Foot Locker full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fast Paced. Good discounts since you have to wear the shoes sold within the banners . Uniform so no need to worry about what to wear everyday . Build loyal relationships with customers internal and external .

    Cons

    Work/ life balance can be very challenging for management . Fiscal responsibility to stay within hours and still get the job done in big box stores can be stressful . DM's are not always supportive. HR director of the west is very questionable .

    Advice to Management

    Show your appreciation to those managers who have been with the company 10+ years. Look at their entire character , performance , and what they have given to the company before you decide to let them go for something that could have easily been coached .

    Pros

    You don't have to run to the back room, climb up the ladders to get a shoe

    Cons

    You are in charge of the apparel, that the costumer touch a lot. And you have to be in the register all your shift except on your break. Your feet can get tired from not moving from the same spot.
