    Pros

    I worked for Golfsmith for almost 7 years. Learned everything there is to now about golf and build a really strong foundation for sales. Great leadership and very nice discounts.

    Cons

    My particular store had very high turnover (Livingston - NJ) and was eventually shut down due to increasing competition from PGA superstore and Dicks sportting goods.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the corporate training programs (Eg. having ecco/ callaway/ taylor made reprs come in for product knowledge seminairs).

    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.
