    Pros

    If you like sporting goods, you are surrounded by them. Not much other than that.

    Cons

    Long hours, poor pay, not loyal, high turnover. Very low pay especially when you are paying for your own benefits. Store Managers don't even make over 45000 a year. Managers are extremely micro managed, absolutely no say in anything.

    Advice to Management

    Regional Manager's are in your store once a year. District Manager's are in your store twice a month. They both micro-manage you through email. Absolutely terrible!!

  2. Great Company!
