Pros

Decent starting pay for an entry level employee. Awesome discounts on products!

Cons

Needs better training on products for employees to understand what they are selling.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I really wish we had easier access to product information to help our customers better with their choices on the products we sell.

    Pros

    Company has good values, too bad store doesn't reinforce that belief. Good discount, fun contests.

    Cons

    Managers speak down to associates, like they are idiots. The saying is, "the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing".... At bass Pro its more like the thumb doesnt know what the index finger is doing... Managers can't manage because the higher ups have all the control. Leads dont lead, they are just associates that get yelled at. If you are a "yes man" you will become a quick favorite and stay that way until you disagree with a manager then you are on scheduled crappy shifts and shrugged off like you are a nobody.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just becuase this store is usually top 3 in the company does NOT mean that you have associates that are happy, it just means you have customers who like what you are selling. Do an anonymous survey of the morale of the associates... you will be amazed at what associates say. This store is losing great associates and managers because you have "loyal" upper management that make the little people hate going to work!
