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

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 of helmets in stock as well as on and off-road apparel and hard parts. Management is good about scheduleing your work hours around your school schedules too.

Cons

Raises are hard to come by unleess you are a partying friend of the manager. I don't know if this holds true at the other Cycle Gear store but I doubt it. Full-time positions are hard to come by too.
