Great experience working at Columbia

Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Pleasant Prairie, WI

I worked at Columbia Sportswear part-time for more than a year

ProsColumbia offers their employees good pay, a friendly atmosphere and the management believed in abilities of employees and didn't micromanage. They also made efforts to reward employees who did well. Columbia also gives monthly bonuses if sales goals were met, which was great.

ConsThere was a lack of training by management in the stores. Not enough was provided to be able to confidently answer all customer questions without hesitation or having to go back and ask management the proper response.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore in-store training is needed.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

The worst teams get the most training and resources but the high performers just get more work and denied… Advice to Senior Management: Replace the upper and middle managers in I.T. and get managers that work well with teams and cross functional teams.
