    I worked at Eastbay

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for Eastbay. My supervisor was very involved and attentive. The work-life balance was great and the vacation and sick benefits were great.

    Cons

    Some of the supervisors seemed to get the job because of seniority and not merit. Just because you've been there a long time doesn't make you an effective leader. There were cliques throughout some of the departments that if an employee wasn't liked because of an arbitrary reason, they were essentially sabotaged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO and VP should really look at some of the management in your Distribution Center. There are people there with positions that they aren't able to effectively do and will repeatedly blame it on their staff which is one of the reasons for the high turnover in entry level positions. Those employees don't feel valued by their supervisors or managers.

  5. It was a very easy job, though not rewarding and there was no motivation to do a good job.

  7. Meh...it's ok if you desperately need a job, but way too much favoritism going on.

    I worked at Eastbay full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    fulltime work, nice co-workers, good vacation and PTO if you last long enough to get it

    Cons

    Zero flexibility, ridiculous attendance policy (you're not allowed to have any kind of problem come up within the first 3 months or you'll get written up), flagrant favoritism by management shown all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on your communication; we cannot read your minds. Pay people a living wage if you want them to be happy to come to work, and work hard.

    I worked at Eastbay part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work schedule is really friendly. When u initially get hired, they allow u to basically make your own schedule and when u need to change your schedule (which u can do every 3 months or so), u can do that as well. The supervisors are really friendly and are always there for u when you need help. They have holiday incentives for being an employee such as gift card giveaways and food during breaks.

    Cons

    You have to often take blame for a lot of things and especially during the holidays, it gets really annoying because people are crabby around Christmas time because a lot of their orders are either wrong or they order the wrong size or color. The pay could be higher as well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that people that have been working for the company for a longer period of time should be paid higher. I left the company for a summer, came back and was making the same as a new employee. Previously I had worked there for 4 years prior. Little promotion but other departments may have openings

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

    Pros

    If you are a college student, they work around your schedule. Coworkers are nice. The pay has increased as of late. Most of the supervisors are nice and have good attitudes when you need them.

    Cons

    Limited Promotions within. Though they take good care of their employees, I feel like there could be more discount events for call center employees. I also worked within the company for 5 years and have seen minimal pay increases.
