Pros

Everyone is very nice and willing to explain, people were friendly, pay was good, excellent compensation for job well done.

Cons

Some managers were a little overbearing, some of the perks stopped after a while

Advice to Management

Love the store, the people make the difference, I'm not really big with outdoors stuff, but they made me feel right at home. Just keep taking care of your employees, better health insurance, more incentives etc.

  1. Excellent, unless one person has too much control over a store

    Pros

    They pay well and promote their best workers. It's a very family friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    This may have changed, but the store manager at the Fort Worth location was rarely seen. He would come down when we had long lines in the front and try to fix it, but short of him getting on a register, there was nothing to be done. If you needed to find him he was either in his office, in the firearms section or gone.

    Advice to Management

    Don't rely on your private label stuff to drive business and bring in new customers. Stop shoving the credit card down people's throat. Yes, the store makes money. No, it's not good in the long run for the economy or the company.

    Pros

    In my department, you get to work independently and with little direction. The manager pretty much trusts you to get your work done in the time allotted. Only time you get a task list is if there is a special project or sale coming.

    Cons

    There is a serious lack of respect and appreciation for the overnight team. Its a small team that is responsible for replenishing merchandise and are often blamed for misplaced items and improper inventory practices. The warehouse manger does not seem to be an advocate for his team. Too many rumors run around.

    Advice to Management

    Create more incentives for supply chain and overnight teams.
