    Pros

    Excellent manager, easy job that anybody can do. Great high school or college job.

    Cons

    You work with other kids who are terrible coworker, but that's retail for you. And the drama is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the employees who work in the store than the guys who sit in chairs and suits and aren't present.

    Pros

    Very laid back, not responsible for anything but the bike area (besides the end of the night where you clean up the store). Repair, build and sell anything related to bikes is pretty much all you do.

    Cons

    Very boring when not in bike season, not much to do obviously. Never work with anyone else, mostly one shift ends and you pick up where the last guy ended or vise versa.

    Advice to Management

    I work in bikes for a reason, don't pull me away to a department I don't know just to fill because then I look stupid.

    Pros

    The work isn't hard. Its nice to be moving and talking to customers. Flexible when you need time off.

    Cons

    Training is somewhat lacking. The managers focus very heavily on metrics and can stress out the employees over insignificant numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the employees and less on the numbers and success will come.
