    I have been working at Foot Locker

    Pros

    You get to see shoes before the public, first dibs on most releases and there’s a decent employee discount.

    Cons

    The pay rate isn’t too great, and customers are sometimes overwhelming.

    Pros

    Employee discount Gym on site Cafeteria on site

    Cons

    The benefits here are absolutely horrible. 401k is a 1% match and insurance premiums are very high (and keep going up every year!) for a sub-par plan that still leaves you with a lot of out of pocket expenses. Many doctors and medical facilities don’t take the current insurance offered here. The pay (and raises) here are also very low - and you only get paid once a month, so make sure you know how to budget!... Depending on your luck, or lack thereof, of who your direct manager is, your experience here will either be “ok” or downright horrible. Some managers are awesome, while many have mastered the art of micromanaging. The workload balance here is very tilted. Your coworker(s) could be browsing the internet/playing on their phones all day while others are there late at night trying to get things done. It is frowned upon to leave at five, even if you have all of your work done. Want to take vacation? Good luck getting it approved. If it’s near month end, it will never get approved. Only the people that become buddy-buddy with upper management get promoted, regardless if they are good at their job or not. Turnover at the corporate level is extremely high here.

    Advice to Management

    Constantly training new employees is very frustrating for everyone. Figure out how to fix what’s broken so the employee turnover slows down. Listen to what people are saying at their exit interviews. Work on offering better benefits - what’s currently offered is unacceptable. Promote people that are not only good at doing the work, but also know how to properly manage the people under them. Don’t just promote your... “favorites”. Management as it currently is has created an environment that many people don’t want to be a part of.

    Great introduction to retail Easy and efficient communication methods. In store and out of store. Working with arguably the coolest inventory on the market Employee discount Good communication and flexibility Awesome, young, knowledgeable, and helpful coworkers who never leave you behind.

    Cons

    Clients can be difficult sometimes, but that’s just retail. Not Footlocker’s problem.
