Since Blaine and Robin first opened the doors to Fleet Feet Roanoke in 2003, they had no idea where this journey would take them, but they had a goal. They wanted to help build the local running and walking community in Roanoke, one step at a time.
15 years later, and there's no slowing down. Fleet Feet Roanoke is more than just a running store, it's a family and sense of community. We are dedicated to helping Roanoke become a healthier and happier place, changing lives and giving back to the community that has supported us for 15 years.
We value our employees. They care about the local community, being active, and helping every single person that walks through our doors. And we're growing! We are looking for passionate and driven individuals to join our team. We are hiring for full and part-time Outfitters—a job that is fast, fun, rewarding—and you can wear running shoes to work! If you’re interested in making a difference, let us know by applying below.
Are you up to the Fleet Feet challenge?
We are always looking for people who have a passion for lifetime fitness, who enjoy serving others, and who are capable of providing consistently superior customer service. We work hard and we play hard - and, while this is definitely a fun, rewarding place to work, there are demands that go along with a position here, so we tend to be selective. Are you right for Fleet Feet Roanoke? Is Fleet Feet Roanoke right for you?
Test yourself with these questions:
Do you have a sales sense? Our guests appreciate learning about our products, so you should be comfortable (even passionate and excited!) about suggesting items people might enjoy.
Are you good at switching gears? When guest traffic slows, you will find yourself busy with stocking, cleaning and more. But when somebody walks in the door, your focus has to switch 100% to guest service.
Can you stay calm and friendly under pressure? Things can get very busy here. Especially on the weekends, expect a fast pace for hours on end.
Are you a team player? Fleet Feet Roanoke is like a family and we work closely with each other, sometimes under stress or with other things on your mind. 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.
Are you willing to learn new things? You'll need to make an effort educate yourself about all of our products; that way, you can deliver the level of service our guests expect. We're here to help you, but you’ll also need to ask questions and take the time to 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 our specialty.
Are you patient and willing 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 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 weekends? In this biz, weekends are a key time. We expect team members to be able to work most weekends.
