    Pros

    The discount and bonuses are always great. Coworkers turn into a family. Their scheduling is flexible and most importantly its a fun and friendly environment.

    Cons

    The pay should be better, products could be better, the company itself is late with what's actually selling. WE CAN'T WEAR ORIGINALS TO WORK.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to be more open minded when it comes to products and customer needs. For example, the shoe cleaners look exactly like the ones from Footlocker, Champs, ect. Why not make a shoe cleaner thats unique and eye catching? We can't wear originals to work? What's the point of selling products we can't wear? We know the brand is sports oriented, but what about making our brand number one? Track pants are always difficult to sell MOSTLY because of how it fits to most customers. Majority of the time its too long. How about me make width and length sizes? You know what sells for the future? Kids. The selection in the children's department isn't that huge for back to school events, Christmas, ect. Lets have a better variety of choices for our kids. Women always complains to me about their selection of clothes and shoes. Telling me about why we always have the same pink, purple, and black color scheme. Once again, lets be open minded with our brand that is all that I am asking. There is actually a handful of advice that I would like to give to this company as being apart of this company.
