General Manager (Former Employee), new yorkJanuary 5, 2015
Pros: you get to see the newest apparel as soon as it comes out
Cons: standing on you feet for most of the day
Working with customers, making sales on the floor. Work the register from time to time.

More people skills, ways to act fast in certain situations, money handling skills, display placement etc

I'm a people person and I never get into any confrontations with any co-workers. I was friends everyone at footlocker

Having a lot of work to do and not enough stuff

Just to do my job well is enjoyable, no matter what job it is that I am doing

Sales Associate (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 4, 2015
I enjoyed working for the footocker Company for many reasons one would happen to be because of the location there where plenty of people from out of the contry that come to shop and at times it challenged my position but what's work without a challenge.

Good first job
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Broomfield, CODecember 18, 2014
Pros: sneakers, discounts, fun environment
Cons: career advancement opportunities were not advertised (among employees)
This was a good long-term first job to have. I learned about working with people, and selling, as well as marketing and professionalism. Can't see how I could have made a career out of it though, the opportunities to advance were never readily available in the stores I worked in, so I could not set a career path once I finished high school.

Fast Paced Work Environment
Sales Associate/Stock/Cashier (Former Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FLDecember 15, 2014
Pros: sometimes our managers treat us to lunch
Cons: the pay
A typical day at work is talking with customers and trying to see why they came into the store and make sure they don't leave without them being satisfied. I learn how to interact with people better. Management is driven off of our communication with one another. We communicate well. The managers never abuse their powers and treat you equally fair. My co-workers are very friendly and down to earth. And the hardest part of the job would probably be dealing with ignorant customers.The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to talk about sports with my co workers when things get slow.

I Enjoy Working Here
Sales Lead (Current Employee), South Euclid, OHDecember 14, 2014
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.

Worst job I ever had!
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Upper Darby, PADecember 7, 2014
Pros: discount, you get 50% 3 times a year.
Cons: everything else
Foot locker does not give out raises at all. I worked there two years without receiving a raise and there was obviously people who worked there way longer. One girl was there for 14 years and never once received a raise. You would think the pay would be great if they don't feel the need to EVER give out raises but its not. As a sales associate you get paid $6.13 a hour plus 1%commission. Assistant managers make minimum wage with 2% Commission and i am not sure about the actual store managers but i know they don't make commission. As a part time employee you can not go over 30 hours so even with the max hours you can only make but so much with $6.13 a hour and the commission doesn't really help, If you sell $1000 worth of shoes you only get a extra $10 on your check so to make a extra $100 on your check you would have to sell $10,000 worth of shoes. This job only works for people who have another job and just want a discount on shoes because that is all this job is good for. The discount is 30%
