    Pros

    Promoting hard working employees is encouraged and valued. I feel as if I am encouraged to find talented sales associates that I can help become managers.

    Cons

    I'm sure it's the same with almost all retailers but it is very tricky to staff the store with enough associates to provide the level of service I (and the company) expect while staying within payroll limits.

    Advice to Management

    I think upper management is doing a great job. With the recent focus on localizing inventory to suit the local market, I believe We are poised to become even better in 2015z

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Golfsmith (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    The interview went well. It was a more casual interview than I expected. I went in to first meet with the hiring manager and then I was asked to come back again in a week to meet with a few others I would be working with. Those interviews went well - albeit they weren't as serious about the interview, which made it easier.
