A DAY IN THE LIFE:
Working as a Sales Associate at Fleet Feet Sports is a lot like running...you are always in motion. One moment you’re watching a person run and recommending shoes that would work best for them for their 5K or marathon, the next you’re helping someone determine what hydration system works best for their needs and preference or walking them through the new GPS watch they purchased. You can be helping your teammates set up for a fun run, packet pick-up for a local race or vendor event for the evening, then offering a treat to one of our canine customers (Fleet Feet Sports is very dog-friendly.)
When you work at Fleet Feet Sports, you are always on the move, so we are looking for energetic and enthusiastic people who are will to go that extra mile to exceed the expectations of our customers and assist them in finding what they need, working as a team with your fellow associates to create an extraordinary experience in our store.
