I have been working at Columbia Sportswear part-time (more than a year)Pros
Great co-workers here, good managers, especially the swing and freight supervisors. Customers usually are in a great mood coming in. Store layout is great and only switch things when need be and do not overdo it.
Culture and pay are on par with the rest of the area around Johnson Creek.
Great discount for employees, family and friends of such employees.Cons
I'd say the turnover is a bit surprising right now having worked there. Some of it is for a reason like going to a different city but others are more surprising but regardless those positions should be filled.
I'd say help out the managers with a 401k or something and give the sales associates some sort of benefit plan like health care (even if it is minimal)Advice to ManagementAdvice
I think if they focus on what makes them as them, that is really good. Also bring in more of the other styles like Montrail, Mountain Hardwear, prAna, and such into the outlet stores. Customers really want them and it is a huge seller. Upgrade customer support as that is a frequent thing customers bring up. Also the 10 percent off for signing up as a rewards member was an enormous hit with customers, so I'd suggest bringing that back as well.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
