Fun workplace, met a lot of great people, learned a lot of great lessons.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Annapolis, MD – October 5, 2017
A typical day at Finish Line would be coming into a friendly workplace with a goal in mind. Depending on the shift you work depends on how the day will go. Usually a day shift it is pretty dead in the store other than a few customers every hour so mainly during the day shift your job is to prepare the store for the evening rush. And evening shift basically involves interacting with customers, trying to complete the days sales goals, and make the store profit. Management could have improved, most managers were down to earth but when it came to scheduling it was a mess. The hardest part of the job would be during the holiday season you would get big rushes all throughout the mall so being able to keep up with customers and make the daily sales goals because they were higher during the holiday season was challenging. The most enjoyable part was becoming close with employees, meeting a lot of knew people and learning different sales strategies. I learned a good bit working at this retail store. I improved a lot in my communication skills as well as learning how to close sales and influence people. Another Valuable skill I learned was upselling, because we were advertised as a shoe store selling shoes was the easy part, getting people to buy the apparel and other merchandise was the challenging part where your skills were put to the test.
