Pros

Great employee discounts, generally enjoyable days at work, good coworkers. Training was boring but useful and very applicable to the job most of the time.

Cons

Low pay rates until someone reached store management level. Sales goals and push for sales got tiring sometimes, but it's a business and the job is to sell, so most of the time it wasn't that big of a deal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Investing in your good employees and keeping them around (ie, giving them pay and benefits they can actually live on) will help reduce turnover and improve customer service and team knowledge. Could probably accomplish more with fewer people.

    Pros

    You work in a relaxed, casual environment with friendly coworkers. Many people here have similar interests, and even if you don't, it's easy to make friends.

    Cons

    Don't get many days off during holidays. They also seem to only care about how long you are in the office for, not as much for your productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monthly 1:1 with employees to recap performance and discuss upcoming events.

    Pros

    Working in the motorcycle industry is very fun as an enthusiast. Cycle Gear provided many opportunities to network with other industry professionals and opportunities to meet professional racers. It was also a great opportunity to stay up on current products and changes in the industry.

    Cons

    It was hard to balance work and home life with the demand of retail hours. This however is the same in most if not all retail environments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look closer at individual markets, especially for older locations. Factor in economical factors of the areas such as unemployment rate, potential new customer base and existing customer purchasing habits when setting store plans. Also look at geographical factors such as crime rate in area of store, location of competition, location of other major retailers and changes to retail activity in the area. For example relocating a store from a more economically depressed area of the city to a more desired shopping area. Especially in areas where development favors an urban sprawl and new development is moving away from the store location. It is harder to drive customers to less desirable area of the city that is out of their "comfort/safe" zone.
