Before you consider filling out our employment application, we have some things for you to think about. Is an opportunity at Fleet Feet the right fit for you? Test yourself with these questions:
Are you comfortable making recommendations? Our customers appreciate learning about our products…from shoe technology to the importance of carrying a hydration pack. You should be comfortable (even passionate and excited!) about suggesting items people will benefit from and enjoy.
Are you good at switching gears? When customer traffic slows, you will find yourself busy with stocking, cleaning and other tasks. But when somebody walks in the door, your focus has to switch 100% to friendly customer service, even if you are behind in your other tasks.
Can you stay calm and friendly under pressure? Imagine providing superior customer care to 2 guests at the same time (with your other team members doing the same) while 5 more guests are waiting. They all want the same level of attention and care, they want it in a timely fashion and they want you to be friendly and appreciative. Things can get very busy here and there is always other work to be done. Expect a fast pace for hours on end.
Are you willing to learn new things? People know us as the FIT experts. “FIT” does not just refer to shoes but all of our products and our service. We'll teach you everything you need to know but you’ll need to make an effort to learn and commit to memory information about all of our products so that you can deliver the highest level of service our guests have come to expect.
Are you patient and eager to serve people? We expect team members to take a friendly attitude towards customers; to smile and greet them as soon as they walk in, to make conversation with all kinds of people, to serve their needs, to take time and care for them. If you feel shy or awkward about talking with strangers or if you are not willing to serve guests (even touch their feet) you might not like it here.
Are you available on evenings and weekends? In this business, evenings and weekends are a KEY TIME when many of our customers shop and stop by the store for one of our many fun runs and seminars. It is critical to our continued success that our employees be flexible and comfortable working a variety of shifts, including evenings and weekends.
