    I have been working at Eastern Mountain Sports part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I had a good experience working at EMS during college. They had a friendly work environment, good sales training through use of clinics and vendor visits, and challenged my fellow associates and I with making sales and engaging customers.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot to say here. As far as part time jobs go, this was a good one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think we had too many sales and discounts. In the end, I think it devalued the product, specifically the private label merchandise. I think we could have commanded a better overall gross profit if we sold slightly higher quality & higher price private label merch at a slightly lower initial GPM, but with less sales promotion as the season carried on.

    Was pretty laid back overall, we sat outside. It was done very well, initial contact was quick, efficient and professional. Job was offered and was happy to accept. I felt welcomed onto the team in a very short amount of time.
