Pros

The pros are they take care of you as an employee. The district supervisor took a personal interest in me and my employees. The Benefits package was great (they paid for it). My supervisor allowed for my creativity and my connection with the community to dictate how the store was set up, and how we approached visual merchandising. A great job for a part time seeker. .

Cons

The lack of commitment to improving the company and bringing it into the current century. The dress code is rediculous, shirt and tie for all male employees, really? The quality of some of the products is poor at best. The lack of annual raises is discouraging, out of 7 years employeed, recieved 3 raises.A good start into management but not a life long or long term career choice

Advice to Management

Do away or redefine the dress code, the shirt and tie has little or no effect on a customers perception. Upgrade the return policy so it is defined accross the board, not left up to managers discression.

    Pros

    I liked the set up of the company, and the history of the company as an army surplus store. I like how they sell guns and all types of affordable sporting goods.

    Cons

    Pay is low and work can get boring.
