i work there techinically i guess still......

i think i've worked maybe 5 times, including the 'training'

got it as a second job, but really just to get the discount.....

it's not hard work, everything is mad easy to learn how to do, it's just really boring.......go get shoes for people, they don't want them, they want a different pair, they don't want those, they want the first pair you took back, they finally leave, you go fold shirts....

but it's easy money i guess...

There's no such thing as a perfect job. And all stores will definitely vary. Some will have drama, some won't. Only thing I hated about it was that I was doing it for so long, I hated the sight of the place. Easy work, but if you're not tryna work your way up to a store manager spot in X amount of years... but just want that discount, work 1 or 2 days a week so you don't bore yourself with the job, or prepare to find another job ASAP. Anything over 16 hours will get old when they expect you to upsell their sh*tty product a lot. The customer is never right, and money is terrible, even for AM's (assistant managers).

Jobs ain't supposed to be a playground, plus I'm sure working at a footlocker type of store has its share of increase in getting at all kinds of chicks..

It's just a part time job while in school for easy hours, and the discount in the skeem of things. Do they pay minmum, or do they start above minimum or not even hourly wage? I know champs is on comission..

...i work there too, and that's pretty much how it goes...except i've graduated a long time ago from folding shirts...i'm one of the highest paid sales a.ssociates making $9/hour. they stay on my tip for having good sales numbers...

i think minimum around here is $6.55 right now......it was $5.85 when i got hired......they started me at $7.00 but that was because i know the manager and he knows i'm a good salesman......

they have a SPIFF type of thing.......like where if you sell shoe cleaner you get a dollar, you sell insoles you get $.50, etc.

that's why i don't like it, there's no motivation to be happy and TRY to sell the shoes since i get paid the same no matter what my peformance is....

I used to work there as an a.ssistant manager a few years ago. It's cool the pay wasn't sh*t though. My brother and my homeboy were a.ssistants too. My home boy had got a store and got fired. I hated the DM he was a big bonk headed racist hater. I liked working there though all the Ravens players used to come in and some of them were real cool, would give us tickets or whatever come in and say what's up and shoot the sh*t. I sold Method Man a pair of Airs and Cappadona used to come in a lot... I think it was my first real job where I had responibility so overall it was cool.

When it cumz to workin' at a shoe store, i wouldn't work anywhere but Champs Sports. Iono about any otha shoe store that does commission. I mean if itz a dead azz mall then don't do commission, but if your mall iz poppin', and gettz jay'z too, ya check iz guaranteed to be fat! I only worked friday, saturday, sunday and thats like 15-20 hours a week at $5.50 + 1% commission and I was bringin' home 300 to 400 dollar checks err' two weeks. Not bad for weekends only. And depending on ya manager you may gett a couple of bucks if you are the top seller of insoles, socks, cleaner, or whateva they gott now lol

I was talking to a chick who worked at champs, and she said like you get to use your discount on how much you sell idinvidually or by store, is that true or what? Jw.. sorry for all the questions.

maybe where u live, champs here is the WORST!!!! like when j's come out, they have to wait til monday to get the discount, if they don't sell out. they never busy, and the DM is a fukkin a**hole. 5 people quit that place last week. my podnuh is the store manager @ finishline and he get 50K + bonus. he start his people off @ $8 w/o experence.
