    I have been working at Columbia Sportswear part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Passionate, hard working, talented co-workers. Great, quality, high tech products. Columbia walks the walk: they care about the environment. Perks like free TriMet passes for all their employees to encourage green commuting. Great discounts on product.

    Cons

    Pay not great at retail level. Difficult working conditions in terms of scheduling and hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You've got amazingly talented people. Pay them better to keep them and keep a strong team. It's much cheaper than continually having to train new employees just to have them leave to work at REI.
