you guys gotta keep in mind one thing:
they don't give a fuck about how much you know about their products.
they want you to SELL them, and selling isn't entirely based on how knowledgeable you are about an item. That stuff can be taught. Selling can't.
^sry bud i totally disagree
I worked at the SP at richmond center, the guys that knew their shit were the top sellers, it might be true that selling cant always be taught but if u can "sell" but dont know wut the fuk ur talkin about, u'll make some sales but u end up with returned items which looks bad on ur record and reduces ur paycheck
SP does make u do h/w, a couple months before i quit, they made me take these online product courses, but in the end that actually did help with my sales
it doesnt take much to get in, u just gotta hand in ur application at the right time like in may or june, say that u do a shitload of sports, and previous job experience helps as well,
and if u compare the amount of shoes SP sells compared to footlocker, ur bound to see ur amount of "shitty" shoes, but just cuz shoes dont look "cool" doesnt mean their "shitty", SP focuses on shoes that can perform well, not shoes that look good while ur trying to perform
one more thing, by the first week if not the second u start working there, ur gonna want to quit.
