Great place to work

Team Leader (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cycle Gear full-time for more than a year

Pros1st let me say this...anyone that complains about working at cyclegear will complain about any job that requires you to work hard and take pride in something...the problem with most motorcyclist that come to work for cycle gear is that they have no retail experience and when givin a chance most of them just want to chat about bikes all day and get paid for it...most guys get in and dnt take the training serious and dnt realize how much they dnt knw until they have that customer that has tons of questions and they dnt knw any of the answers...I've been in retail for a long time and I have to give cyclegear credit for doing it correctly...from the top dwn they treat and care about all of there employees...and as far as the bilt brand goes...it's our job to qualify the customer so that they make an informed buying desicion...we are never told to push any brand on to our customers...it's true that we dnt hold on to bad or consistent bottom performers ...but what business does? This is a great place to work and all of my employees are like family

ConsWe have to move a little faster with the new technology some of the things we do are out of date

I have been working at Cycle Gear full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: Great Employee discount. You gain a lot of knowledge of the industry and about the sport and hobby of motorcycling from dirt, to street, ATV's… Cons: The downside is the WalMart mentality. This is a specialty retailer, selling safety equipment, parts accessories and apparel that can potentially save somebody's life. Getting… Advice to Senior Management: Drop the sales goals!!! It's not realistic to try and best your comp when the company is this old and well seasoned. You're own stores… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
