Are you up to the Fleet Feet Albany Challange?
We are always looking for people who have a passion for lifetime fitness, who enjoy helping others, and who are capable of providing consistently superior 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. After all, we want good people to join us, stay with us, and grow with us.
Are you right for Fleet Feet Albany? Is Fleet Feet Albany right for you?
Ask yourself these questions:
Do you have sales sense?
Our guests 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 might enjoy.
Are you good at switching gears?
When guest traffic slows, you will find yourself busy with stocking, cleaning, and more. But when someone walks in our door, your focus has to switch 100% to friendly guest service, even if you are behind in your other responsibilities.
Can you stay calm and friendly under pressure?
Imagine providing superior customer care to 2 guests at the same time (with your teammates 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 a team player?
Fleet Feet Albany is like a family and we work closely with each other, sometimes under stress or with other things on our minds. But no matter what's going on in your week, your teammates 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 to all of our products and our service. You'll need to make an effort to get educated about all of our products so that you can deliver the 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 remember things.
