Management was bad.

Sales Associate (Former Employee)

ProsI like Columbia Sportswear clothing, so it was nice to get a discount on that.

ConsManagement was terrible. He wouldn't let us talk to other co-workers. Wouldn't listen to my request off dates.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave more fun. It will allow your employees to actually want to go to work
