Fleet Feet Menlo Park is a great place to work. We offer a fun, upbeat, health-minded working environment and a great team of people.
We are currently hiring. If you are looking for full- or part-time work and would like to know more about opportunities here, please contact Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Questions to ask yourself when considering applying to our team:
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 suggesting items people might enjoy.
Are you good at switching gears? Retail work keeps you on your toes! When customer traffic slows, you might find yourself busy with stocking, cleaning, and more. But when somebody walks in the door, focus has to switch back to friendly customer service.
Are you a team player? Fleet Feet Sports is like a family and we work closely with each other, sometimes under stress. 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. Our staffers are educated about all of our products, so that they can deliver the highest level of service.
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 customer's name. Going an extra mile by staying open late or rush shipping a customer a pair of socks before a big race is what sets us apart.
Are you patient and eager to serve people? We expect team members to take a friendly attitude toward customers. 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. Employees work at least one weekend day, and staff our many special events during the week.
If you answered “yes” to these questions, please contact us through email. If you have a resume, attach that, too. No phone calls please.
