    Call center; very stressful and administrative guidelines are impossible to maintain.

    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 Management

    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.

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

    Pros

    The working environment was very nice and so were the people that I worked with. Everyone is extremely helpful.

    Cons

    Sometimes there wasn't enough work to do because the position was new.

    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 Management

    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.
