    Pros

    Decent pay, I enjoy the in-depth conversations with other people who love golf as much as I do!

    It's difficult to close a sale, generally because it's a lot of money to give up.

    I worked at Dick's Sporting Goods part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you love sports and love to talk about sports this is the place to work at. You're surrounded by coworkers and customers who are sports minded so it's a plus. On top of that you get to learn new things about other sports activity you probably wouldn't necessarily consider.

    Cons

    The operator was cheap, unorganized, and hated dealing with conflict. One of the employers was stealing money from other employers and it went on for 4 months before they finally let the one they knew was responsible go.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of situations when they happen not after the fact. Just because you give people who actually work more time doesn't mean you cut 60% of the staff's time. It doubles the work for the people who do work.

    Pros

    discount, flexible scheduling, fast-paced environment

    Cons

    Managers don't communicate with each other well. Also have a policy for "leads" that they must have open availability and nothing less.

    Advice to Management

    Start conducting exit interviews with associates when turnover rate starts going higher.
