    Pros

    Co-workers are genuinely friendly
    Casual, laid back environment

    Cons

    You are valued more on the time spent in the office(even if that means you are just wasting time and space - trust me I have seen many people do that here!) oppose to the actual work productivity. Out-dated systems, no one in the 'upper echelon' really listens until it is too late and by too late I mean, we are in 'Red Alert' mode fixing and cleaning up messes on the back end OR we lose great employees!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people what they are worth!
    Take the time to listen to your team.
    Managers should meet with their team monthly to discuss where they are at, what they have been doing, where improvement is needed etc...
    Restructure is needed is most departments

    I worked at Cycle Gear part-time

    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.
