Great job for students

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
Laguna Hills, CA

I worked at Cycle Gear full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPretty decent employee discounts, fun atmosphere, good stepping stone to move on to bigger and better things in the motorcycle industry.

ConsEmbarrassingly low pay, typical inflexible corporate method of doing things, micro management

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your front line workers. Customers are generally not interested in poor quality products (ie: Frank Thomas). Empower your employees (or at least asst manager/manager level employees) to make decisions on discounts. Continue to sell at MSRP and Cycle Gear will follow the path of retailers like Best Buy... where consumers walk in to physically exam products before ordering online.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

This will vary from manager… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
