Foot Locker Interview Questions

32 Foot Locker Interview Questions
Question 1 of 32
How do you like to be recognized for your accomplishments?
How to Answer
One of Foot Locker's 2018 strategies is to 'embrace the power of employees,' which includes celebrating success and recognizing the hard work that goes into accomplishing a goal. Talk to the interviewer about how you like to receive credit for your work.

Answer Example
"I am very much an over-achiever and find that the best way for me to be recognized for a job well done is through words of kindness and recognition. I am easily encouraged, and the best reward for me is to know that my hard work is noticed."
Answer Example
"A few years ago, I had a manager who made a habit of hand-writing thank you notes for team members who went the extra mile for the team or our customers, and I always really appreciated that small, thoughtful token of appreciation. Public recognition and gifts are always nice, but it meant so much more to me to have a manager who took the time to think through what she appreciated about one or more of her employees every month. It motivated me to do my best work because I wanted to be an employee who she trusted and appreciated enough that she would take those few moments to say thank you."

Question 2 of 32
How do you handle situations that could cause you to be late or miss work?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
At Foot Locker, we want to make sure all of our employees are empowered to be leaders and who pursue excellence in all that they do. One of the ways that an employee can prove their leadership and excellence is by planning ahead for the unexpected. Talk to the interviewer about how you react when unexpected situations arise that threaten to make you late for work.

Answer Example
"I've been on school and intramural sports teams since I was really young, and timeliness and punctuality are values that every coach has instilled in me. Being on time is really important to me, so I always have a backup plan in mind if something goes wrong. I tend to leave for work much earlier than necessary -- that way, I have time to relax before my shift starts and I have a buffer built into my schedule if something unexpected pops up that would have made me late for work."
Answer Example
"I'm a mom to three sports-lovers, so I'm no stranger to running into complications when shuttling my girls to their separate practices, games, and meets. My go-to strategy to prevent being late to any event, including work, is to have a plan B, C, and D -- that way, if something unexpected happens, I don't have to worry about how I'm going to stick to the tight schedule."

Question 3 of 32
Do you have reliable transportation?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Even if you're not expected to drive for the job, you will need to have some form of reliable transportation. If you take the bus or ride a bike, that works too! Merely share that you have the means to get to work consistently and on time.

Answer Example
"I have reliable transportation. I have a well-maintained vehicle, and I am comfortable with the amount of travel required to get to your office every day."
Answer Example
"I take public transit; however, I find it to be very reliable. I was late to work only once last year, and that was due to a snowstorm which stalled all of our employee's commute - including those with personal vehicles. Rest assured, I am reliable and will always come to work on time."

Question 4 of 32
What do you hope to learn from this job at Foot Locker?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Foot Locker is a huge corporation with a wide variety of potential career paths, from administrative support to marketing to product development -- there's something for everyone at Foot Locker, and a retail job could get your foot in the door for future career opportunities. Talk to the interviewer about what you hope to learn at Foot Locker and how you see yourself growing with the company in the future.

Answer Example
"One of the main reasons I'm interested in a job at Foot Locker is that I would really like to move into a Merchandising role someday. I'm hoping that starting out on the sales floor will lay the groundwork for me to take on more responsibilities and, hopefully, will make me an ideal candidate for a merchandising role sometime in the future."
Answer Example
"I really love sales, so I'm hoping to continue to strengthen my customer service skills. I'm currently studying to earn my bachelor's degree in marketing with the hopes that I can become involved in online marketing and e-commerce in the future -- that's really my dream career, and I'm hoping that starting out at the store level will increase my chances of earning the job of my dreams after I earn my degree!"
