Sales Associate (Former Employee), Culver City, CA – July 30, 2014
Pros: 30% off of shoes.
A typical day at footaction would be me walking in and clocking in and checking the weekly schedule. Then prepare myself to go gout onto the slaesfloor and interact with with customers and see if they need any help with shoes,ask them questions pertaining to what they were looking for. Also throw suggestions to the customers. Since that was my first – more... job, I learned initially what customer service was because it was more of a hands-on experience versus working at the loteria. My co-workers were just my co-workers, strictly business. The hardest part of the job would have to been the rude customers, but they taught me to strengthen my work ethic, very challenging. Most enjoyable part of that job was interacting with the customers, because weall had a common interest in shoes & you just never knew what kind of customer you would be assisting. – less
Store Manager (Former Employee), Waco, Tx. – July 1, 2014
Pros: having fun daily
Cons: company selling out.
A typical day was fun with music and dancing on a daily basis besides just selling shoes. I learned how to train and develop associates for the future of the company. All my staff were very upbeat people and sharks on the floor as commissioned based. Hardest part of the job was the fact the company sold out to another company. I loved the people that – more... I worked with overall. – less

Pros: selling shoes, talking to customers, and being yourself

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Savannah, GA – April 15, 2014
A typical day is based on the time of year. It's busier around the time parents are preparing for the upcoming school year, holidays, and tax season. The hardest part of the job is convincing customers to purchase insoles because many aren't aware of its benefits. The most enjoyable part of the job is completing a sale & leaving a great lasting impression – more... with customers. – less
Sales Associate /Cashier (Current Employee), Baton Rouge, LA – April 14, 2014
Pros: different discount
Enjoy working with co-workers and learning about them. Getting different types of customer in and out of the store, also learning about their likes/dislikes. Able to learn about new fashion shoes compared to the old shoes. Learned a lot about Visual Merchandising the set up of the store from the VMs that came in to help.
Part- time Manager (Current Employee), Statesville, NC – April 8, 2014
Pros: discounts up to 50%.
Cons: bad pay rate.
Footaction was a great place to work when I was in school, very flexible schedule. In retail you meet very intresting people and sometimes make loyal customers who come to you for their needs. They have good benefits if you are a sneaker head and unwillingly you will become one! The payrate is not the best it can be. You usually start off at min wage – more... and are lucky to get a raise within the next year or two or three. Overall is was a fun part-time job, not something i could make a living out of. – less
