    Former Employee - Store Manager

    I worked at Olympia Sports full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    i started as a part timer and worked my way up to store manager and the amount of pros are too many to count! monthly bonus incentives, along with company wide challenges often resulting in another bonus, pto and full benefits. that is just the pay they also continulously are training so weather you stay or leave you have been built up as a better employee for future employment. they also trust in the store manager to build the staff which makes for an enjoyable work enviroment.

    Cons

    you get what you put in! if you dont want to work 10 to 15 unpaid hours (store managers are salary and have to work 44) you have to make sure you are actually training your staff so they can help when you are not there. the weight load of the job rests on your shoulders. also if your first priority isnt customer service this job is not for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    rsm's watch the turn over of management i know way to many people who loved and would have done almost anything for olympia but felt like they couldnt talk to, get help from or go to their dsm.
