Could be worse

Sales Associate (Current Employee) Colorado Springs, CO

ProsNever got denied a requested day off, coworkers / managers were good people (varies by store). Decent hours and were able to work around my college classes.

ConsDress Code - It's the 21'st century, button-up, ties and slacks in a sporting goods environment is ridiculous. No facial hair except for mustaches. This kind of dress code really has no place in any retail store, especially a sporting goods one.
Pay is a bit underwhelming.

Advice to Senior ManagementDitch the dress code, this isn't 1975.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
