Just like the Fleet Feet Sports community at large, our employees @ Fleet Feet Sports Baltimore have a passion for pursuing an active lifestyle and a desire to make a difference. We work hard, but it is a labor of love. Our team enjoys inspiring others to get moving and is focused on positive change in our community. If you want the satisfaction of waking up each day knowing you can make a difference, we hope you'll consider joining our team.
Before you consider filling out our employment application, we have some things for you to think about. Are you right for Fleet Feet Sports? Are we right for you?
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. We are open on Monday/Wednesday/Friday and Saturdays until 6pm. Tuesday/Thursday until 7pm and Sunday we are open from 12noon - 5pm!
Are you a team player? Fleet Feet Sports is like a family and we work closely with each other, sometimes under stress.
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 services. You’ll need to make an effort to get educated about all of our products, so that you can deliver the highest level of service our guests have come to expect.
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 guests’ name or what type of shoe they run in. Going an extra mile for a guest by staying open late or rush shipping them a pair of socks before a big race is what sets us apart. Fun little extras go a long way and make your job worth the effort.
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? When customer 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 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 for hours on end.
Are you patient and eager 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 about talking with strangers or if you are not willing to serve guests (even touch their feet) you might not like it here.
If you answered “YES” to these questions, please EMAIL US - firstname.lastname@example.org and include contact information, hours of availability per day, days available, previous work experience, and a brief description of why you picked us. If you have a resume, send that too. No prior experience is necessary, again you just have to like people and like to be healthy/run/walk/exercise!
