    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.

    Definite stepping stone, learn a lot while you're there. Don't get caught up in the politics of the game. There are a lot

    I worked at Foot Locker part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Time on the clock is usually pretty chill. A busy store allows for lots of sales which leads to commission. Managers and regional leaders handled internal issues well.

    Cons

    When the store is empty, working at Foot Locker can be hateful. The managers sometimes start to try to make up something to do. And it sometimes leads to a little "ruffling of the feathers". The company tried to train sales methods on a methodical basis, where when you're selling something such as sneakers, it takes much more of a case by case mindset.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the employee discount from 30% to 35-40% please.
