    Pros

    Easy to work your way up the ladder. They will move you around the world to help you move up

    Cons

    The pay for some people is not enough for what you have to do. The BlackOut days are very hard for the people that live far away from their family.

    Pros

    Best environment, understanding bosses, good pay, opportunity for benefits, all that good stuff

    Cons

    Corporate doesn't seem to understand how to work with the smaller stores and puts them at an improbable standard when it comes to consistancy

    Advice to Management

    Take into consideration also giving us Thanksgiving off, because nobody shops on Thanksgiving.

    I have been working at Foot Locker full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The ability to network, communicate with many individuals, and run a location as if it were your own businesses. Fast paced training and promotions. Fun, exciting environment.

    Cons

    Pay is not negotiable, as each location has its set pay per volume. Each District Manager can manage/ lead a district different from the previous without proper guidance.

    Advice to Management

    More competitive pay and do not hold back on the proper tools for those to exceed.
