Working as a Sales Associate at Fleet Feet Sports – Chicago is a lot like running, you are always in motion. One moment you’re watching a person run and then recommending them the shoes that would work for them for their 5K or marathon, the next you’re fitting someone for a wetsuit for their first triathlon. You can be advising a customer on the different types of gels and bars to eat during their workout, then setting up and walking them through the new GPS unit they purchased. You can be helping your teammates set up for a fun run, or a packet pick-up for a Fleet Feet Sports Signature Race or vendor event for the evening, then offering a treat to one of our canine customers (Fleet Feet Sports is very dog-friendly.)  When you work at Fleet Feet Sports – Chicago you are always on the move, so we are looking for energetic and enthusiastic people who are will to go that extra mile to exceed the expectations of our customers and assist them in finding what they need, working as a team with your fellow associates to create an unimagined store experience.
