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

    -Enjoyable store appearance and amenities (25,000 gallon tank sure beats that aquarium in the corner)
    -Discount is very generous on store owned goods if the products interest you (fishing, hunting, camping, etc..)

    Cons

    -Management runs the place very old school (1980s work safety videos, candy bar/$1 incentives for goals)
    - training is learn as you go which can leave you hung out to dry in new situations
    - pay is low compared to the revenue the stores bring in everyday

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - establish a new hands-on and face to face training
    - raise the wages, dealing with the general public is rough when you're stuck at a register/ in a department all day
    - a retail job doesn't provide much for challenge and growth so use monetary incentives but make them worth while ($1 rewards don't even buy a coke)
