You can do better than here, trust me

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Allentown, PA

I worked at Cycle Gear part-time for less than a year

ProsId have to say the only 2 pros are the discount and getting to meet cool people here and there. Thats seriously it.

ConsWhere to start. Well besides making no money and having no life to ride you're motorcycle anymore. The company is now pushing only their exclusive brand "Bilt" over everything else. And the Bilt products honestly suck while you're told to basically lie to customers that they are getting a great quality item. The management is a complete Joke. from the store level to the district leader to the idiots sitting at a desk in corporate. Sales goals can be unrealistic, employees are constantly being let go or quitting. I had an issue with the store manager, reached out to corporate and basically was ignored. If they read this they know exactly who I am. Trust me its not the job you think it will be before you start. A true motorcycle enthusiast should skip this place. And if you're manager
is anywhere near as evil as mine was goodluck staying out of Jail.

Advice to Senior ManagementDrop the Bilt brand and you're company might have a future 10 years from now, otherwise along with you're joke of a management team the company will lose alot of business and respect. Though you've already lost mine.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Decent job if you need money to get by or stuck in a crunch.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Cycle Gear full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: -Scheduling is kinda flexible with schooling. -Discount on apparel and accessories. -Get… Cons: -Minimum wage pay or just a tad over to start. -Raises are yearly about and covers just the rise in minimum wage/cost of living; new hires… Advice to Senior Management: Calm down with all the goals/sales and preferred item crap. It comes off as pretentious to customers who have to constantly get badgered with add-ons… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

What was once a fun place to work is now a place of bickering management and promotion of "buddies" by management.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cycle Gear


Pros: If you love motorcycles, this is a great place to work. Although Cycle Gear doesn't sell motorcycles, they do sell everything related to motorcycles. Hundreds… Cons: Raises are hard to come by unleess you are a partying friend of the manager. I don't know if this… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
