    Pros

    25% employee discount, 3point5 training discount, awesome coworkers, If you love everything outdoors; every day is like browsing a catalog which makes time fly bye.

    Cons

    Part time doesn't mean 28 hours per week, in fact you'll likely have somewhere around 15 hours most weeks. Working part time 3rd shift is difficult to manage, especially when you only work two days per week.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more seasonal workers when you open stores, don't get us all going on 28 hour weeks then cut them in half with the hopes that we'll quit. Do a better job of researching locations that aren't next to giant amusement parks.

    Pros

    Working with experienced outfitters. Great management team. Benefits i.e. employee discount, and 3point5 etc... Great workplace environment. Training opportunities and the list goes on.

    Cons

    I have yet to have any complaints or negative experiences but if I happen to come accross any I reserved the right to change my answer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on KEEPING ON and do what you do best. In other words don't make any major changes and keep the lines of communication open.

    Pros

    Good pay, opportunity for advancement, positive coworkers and managers, great products

    Cons

    Inconsistent hours (the standard for retail), feel like you're required to ask customers to apply for credit card

    Advice to Management

    Credit cards hurt credit scores when applied for, regardless of whether they're accepted. 60-75% of the shoppers cannot afford to be there so they do not need a credit card to make matters worse, since they'd quickly acquire more in debt.


  7. Very good, Friendly Manger and leads

    Pros

    Environment. Working with people that enjoy and are proud of where they work. Outstanding perks and ability for growth is astounding!

    Cons

    It's retail so no shockers when it comes to hours and/or expectations. Perhaps the company could be a little bit more organized, but it provides a great way to make a name for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job of leading by example!
