We are always looking for people who have a passion for lifetime fitness, who enjoy serving others, and who are capable of providing consistently superior customer 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. Are you right for Fleet Feet Bonney Lake/Tacoma? Is Fleet Feet Bonney Lake/Tacoma right for you?
Test yourself with these questions:
Do you have a sales sense? Our guests appreciate learning about our products, so 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 somebody walks in the door, your focus has to switch 100% to guest service.
Can you stay calm and friendly under pressure? Things can get very busy here. Especially in the summer months, expect a fast pace for hours on end.
Are you a team player? Fleet Feet Bonney Lake is like a family and we work closely with each other, sometimes under stress or with other things on your mind. No matter what's going on in your week, your team members will be counting on you to be here 100% when your shift starts. We all depend on each other and support each other.
Are you willing to learn new things? You'll need to make an effort educate yourself about all of our products; that way, you can deliver the level of service our guests expect. We're here to help you, but you’ll also need to ask questions and take the time to remember things.
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 guest’s 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.
Are you patient and willing 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 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 weekends? In this biz, weekends are a key time. Of course, we want to have our staff out there racing, too, so we take turns allowing each staff member the opportunity to race when they want. However, we will also need you in the store during weekends, too.
If you answered "yes" to these questions, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com). With your email, include a brief resume, days and hours of availability, and a brief description of why you picked us.
