Pros: 30% discount at all foot locker companies, flexible schedule, management, environment
Cons: pay rate, promotions can take a long time, hours can be cut
I've been working for Foot Locker since i've been in the 11th grade. The people I have worked with have been really great. From the regular associates to the management. Its like a family. I've worked at 2 different locations, 1 inside of a mall, 1 street side store. Its a huge difference in traffic but its something to adjust to. I can say its not a job for everyone. People always tell me "you are lucky to work at Foot Locker, I'd love to have that job". But you have to meet different sales goals every day, every week, every month.
Based on the day or week, a lot of hours can get cut. That sucks the most about the job honestly. Also the pay is low for the work we do. The physical labor, obnoxious customers, and day to day procedures. I think Foot Locker employees should get paid ALOT more than we do.
Also working for the company, you have to have patience. You can get promoted. But you have to wait. Your sales numbers have to be good and you have to wait for the position to be open. I was a Sales Associate for 2 years until I found out that I was going to be a Sales Lead, but someone transferred to my store at that position so I couldn't. It took me 3 years to get the promotion, but it can be a lot quicker and would have been for me too.
