Working at footaction as an assistant manager opened my eyes to a lot of things. It taught me how to defuse situations and how to give 100% customer satisfaction. It taught me better team work and better social skills. Most importantly working in the company taught me better leadership skills. I learned instead of trying to take over and do everything myself it’s better to get everyone engaged and participate. A true leader gets their team involved and trains them to become great. Not just great workers but greater people outside of work as well

I LOVE WORKING HERE. The environment here is so free, pressure less, and everyone works together to accomplish the stores goals. The only thing is they have many full time positions and don't offer many hours.

Working at Footaction has expanded my social skills to a next level that i myself had never thought it would get to. Working here gives you the opportunity to meet great people and fall in love with shoes.

Footaction was a great experience for my first job. It allowed me to adapt to the working world and learn how to interact with customers. As much as I loved this job when I first got it, I was even more excited to leave.
Productive & Fun, But Sometimes The Total Opposite.
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Current Employee) – New York, NY – December 5, 2018
Typical workday? Helping out customers from regulars to tourists from different countries. Great working environment, and your surrounded by sneakers & clothing that other stores like footlocker etc. don't have.
Some days at footaction are rough, other days are fun and relaxed. All employees get along. I've learned so much about them and I'm glad to say we were a great team. Management was great. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the rude customers, but i had to stay positive. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with a group of people that keeps the store in high enjoyable spirits

I learned a lot about customer service don't treat people how you wouldn't want to be treated. Customer service is important to provide good customer service to all types .Customer service is most important part of any business.
A good place to grow despite organizational issues.
Social Media Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 29, 2018
Constantly changing to adapt to the world of retail, but still behind growing trends - especially issues with the buying/merchant teams. Especially fast turnover of employees. Good people, but expect to wear many hats and work well past 5pm.
Room for growth and upward mobility, travel, and lots of sneakers!
Long work hours, no consistent organizational vision, lots of meetings, making it hard to get any real work done.
