  2. "Changed a lot over time"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Team Sales Associate 

    I worked at Footlocker.com/Eastbay part-time

    Pros

    Great job for high schoolers or college students when I first started. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Got more corporate the longer I worked there, with scripts to follow even when they didn't make sense for the call you were on. Timed everything to the minute, marked down if you were even one minute late back from break or had a longer call.

    I worked at Footlocker.com/Eastbay full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Love the discount and employee appreciation.

    Cons

    Only care about money and sales. Should focus more about the customer. Environment is very competitive between employees because management wants you to have the top sales.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing people to be the best sales person and work as a team/store to make a great experience for all customers.

    I worked at Footlocker.com/Eastbay full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Benefits, casual work attire

    Cons

    Worked mandatory overtime like no one's business with restricted dates for when we could take vacation due to holiday season demands. You were just a number at the end of the day.

    Advice to Management

    Take a chance on employees and allow them to advance. Saw too many good employees passed up for promotions and they left the company. Don't overwork your employees.
