Fit Technician

Dec 2020

Fit Technician

New South Wales, Australia
3 to 4 years in the role, current employee

Fantastic and informative.

The good things

I love working with my team. Working as part of a franchise team it becomes a bit more of a family which is great because I know I'll get backed up in the best and worst times. You gain an appreciation for the science and tech that goes into runners and work shoes.

The challenges

Working with challenging customers who may take up to an hour of your time in service and end up buying nothing. Most of the time it's okay though because the customer usually walks away more informed and appreciative.

Good employees, Bad Management

The good things

The challenges

The management do not care about you, only themselves. They treat you like you are disposable. The store I was in was not organised and no one knew what they were doing.

Fit Technician

Mar 2020

Fit Technician

Canberra ACT, Australia
5 to 6 years in the role,

Great people, comfortable environment with flexibility for shifts but so repetitive and disappointing when you have a boss who doesn't care about you.

The good things

The people made the entire job worth it. Knowing you have people you can rely on is such a nice thing. The discounts are great for particular brands and the brand incentives are good to push you to sell more.

The challenges

Not a concern for all stores but having an owner who only cares about numbers and figures was the main issue for everything. Not a people person in the slightest, went back on things that were first said and always felt under appreciated unless you happened to have good numbers. The amount of technology issues that occurred over the years was ridiculous and having a boss not willing to spend a bit of extra money to fix them was annoying as hell. As a smaller store, we also missed out on selling opportunities when shoes were pinched and taken to other stores to be sold and then we got the blame when sales were low.

Fit Technician

Many ups and downs but my overall memories are fond.

The good things

There are a lot of progression options for management positions, the pay rate is higher than the average and the head office crew are actually interested in the individual person.

The challenges

As a casual, you are sometimes viewed as another number, however, if you perform well this can change.
