How many work at the company? What is the overall employee count at NYC?
Anyone has any fear or information on the potential impact and/or job loss the lawsuit could generate?
Company stated they would open 40 new stores in 2018, but my middle management relative has seen zero proof of anything coming. By now, leases would be signed and there would be orders for inventory and plans for hiring, but none of this is... — read more

Foot Locker desperately needs some new and younger leadership. People who are in charge right now don't appreciate innovation and initiative. They're too stuck in the old ways of doing business that might have worked thirty years ago. Fresh ideas are... — read more
I am hoping we have layoffs soon and I am one of those let go. Working at Foot Locker is a lousy experience all around. Pay is ridiculous and raises are on par with unicorns on how often they are spotted. There is absolutely no quality of life here... — read more
Too dependent on Nike and they are losing it recently. Adidas is kicking it out of park. Internally, things are not improving, back stabbing and politics are rampant. Not sure what to tell you.
Another day, another surprise, there are folks that think that job reductions may happen in corporate in NYC.
Foot Locker has rested on Nike’s laurels for years. Now that Nike is no longer innovative and a desired brand and is suffering badly, Foot Locker does exactly what NIKE does: lets go of their smartest and most tenured employees. Foot Locker Culture... — read more
I work In Wausau and about 10% of my department was laid off including me. I know the old VP of marketing was laid off as well as some tenured people in purchasing.
Apparently today (9-19-2017) about 40 people were marched out of Foot Locker headquarters and there was also talk of warehouse layoffs as well. Do we have any more info on this? My location was safe yesterday, and I haven't heard anything about... — read more
As with any restructuring there is always pain and layoffs.
In addition to those who have already been laid off...there will be a second wave after the holidays. They want to see where things are at when "the dust settles." The estimated number of layoffs is 300+. Also, it is correct that they are offering no... — read more

Anyone has the list? I am interested in stores located in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, New York City, Boston, Chicago, Houston and Dallas. I am not even sure if a list like this exists but I hear that some non performing stores might be permanently... — read more
Anybody has the list?
No one wants to work there anyways. The pay is horrible, the hours crappy, and respect is zero.
40+ retail positions in california will be eliminated by April 2010.
