Sales rep (Former Employee), Bloomington, IN – November 21, 2014
Pros: being active
Cons: wages and hours
Exciting job seeing different people everyday even famous people. I was very active and busy helping others find shoe care and even using my shoe knowledge and fashion advice to assist others in their needs. I worked with a good team we all promoted sales and worked together to satisfy the needs of customers. The store got really busy on new release – more... dates but we worked together when it was over crowded. – less

Store Manager (Former Employee), Ocala, FL – October 27, 2014
Pros: is that we give chances
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work would be helping customers and what I learned that every customer is different and have different taste in what they liked. Management was good cause we trained as well as being involved with all customers and employees. My coworker was very helpful as well as we was a team one team one goal. We helped one another. The hardest – more... part of the day is when it would be slow in business. The most enjoyable part of my job is making sure that my customers was able to walk out happy and knowing that my job was done. – less
Cashier (Current Employee), Overland Park, KS – October 22, 2014
Pros: getting free lunches on management.
Cons: short breaks, hours cut
I love working at Footaction. Usually, if I am not on the cashier, I help customers with getting a shoe or help them look for an outfit. When I'm on the floor I always learn something new. If the customer doesn't want to buy the shoe, they tell me to still hold a conversation with the customer. I love working with my co-workers, they each are different – more... in every way. They are always helpful and fun to be around. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that we made day at the end of the night. The hardest part of the job is telling a customer that we don't have a certain shoe, even if we try to look for it in every way. That just shows that everyone was on their A game and did as what our managers asked us to do. – less
Sales associate (Former Employee), Monroeville, PA – September 3, 2014
A typical week day for me started at around 4pm, after I got out of school.

At the end of the day, I would assist the manager or key holder count the drawer, straighten up the store and drop off the days deposit. – more... On the weekends, I normally worked 10 hour days to make up for my limited hours during the week. – less
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Bronx, NY – August 30, 2014
Pros: friendly staff
Cons: low pay, no growth within company, overlooked
- typical day would be a 4-7 hour shift that would consists of price checking all shoes, clothes and sales items. Then greeter all customers and trying to sell the product - hardest part of the job would be to make sure you sold enough products through out the week to meet quotas and to earn pay - most enjoyable part of the job was the staff was small – more... enough that you developed personal friendships with most of the staff - co-workers were fairly nice - management held there weight and would help out the store in any way possible – less
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
