Are You Right for Fleet Feet Sports Roanoke?  
Is Fleet Feet Sports Roanoke Right for You?

Test yourself with these questions:

Do you have a sales sense?  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 educating people on items they may enjoy and find beneficial.

Are you good at switching gears?  When customer traffic slows, you will find yourself busy with stocking, cleaning and more. And 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 and a lot of fun.

Are you a team player?  Fleet Feet Sports Roanoke is like a family and we work closely with each other, sometimes under stress. And no matter what’s going on in your week, your team members will be counting on you to be here 100% when your shift starts. We all depend on each other and support each other. You need to be respectful and patient, and you also need to pull your own weight when it comes to customers and other work that has to get done.

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. You’ll need to take the initiative to get educated about all of our products, so that you can deliver the highest level of service our guests have come to expect. We’ll help you, but it will be up to you to ask questions and take the time to learn and remember things.

Do you pay attention to the little things?  It’s the thoughtful little touches that make a “specialty” store so special, like remembering a frequent guest’s name or what type of shoe they run in. Going an extra mile for a guest is what sets us apart. Fun little extras go a long way and make your job worth the effort.

Are you patient and eager to serve people?  We expect team members to have a friendly attitude toward customers from smiling and greeting them as soon as they walk in, to making conversation with all kinds of people, to serving their needs, to taking the time to 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 Saturdays?  In this business, evenings and Saturdays are a KEY TIME when many of our customers shop and stop by the store for one of our many fun events. 

These are the various positions at Fleet Feet Sports. They are currently filled, but we are always accepting applications.
