    I worked at Scheels part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Employee discount and atmosphere are the best benefits, but they treat employees with high respect.

    Cons

    The pay was not that great and almost discouraged breaks from being taken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise management to be less stringent on petty rules and concentrate more on how the employees can exceed customer expectations.

    Specialty Shop Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Scheels.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewing for a store that will be opening later this year. I learned about Scheels at a career fair at my university and they were wonderful. I went up to the city a few weeks later and interviewed with two different managers and filled out 2 applications; I was there for 3 hours. The interview was very simple and casual. We spent a lot of time talking about Scheels and I asked a lot of questions. They called me a few days after the interview and scheduled a time for me to come back in about a week later. I went in and they offered me the job and explained everything to me; I was given a week to decide. I couldn't take the job because the pay was not enough.

    Scheels seems like a great company and a great way to get supervisory experience for those that don't have a college degree. They really try to determine where someone will have the most strength and want to help them succeed. Scheels is a smaller company, but it felt like there was good potential to move up.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were very difficult. It was a casual conversation about Scheels and my potential with them.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I will have a college degree and the offer was not in line with the salary I needed to relocate to the city and pay living expenses and student loan payments.
