I worked at Cycle Gear

Compensation package was below average.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you take care of your employees they'll take care of your business, instead of having to keep training new hires due to high turnover.

    I have been working at Cycle Gear part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Discounts, discounts, discounts. If you ride any type of motorcycle then this job is amazing. I've never had a job where I get such a good deal on amazing gear. Vendors like shoei, arai, and dainese give cycle gear employees discounts on their products. I got a $500 shoei brand new from the company for $250. On some things in the store you can get upwards of 60% off. It is absolutely incredible.

    Cons

    very numbers driven and sales goal oriented. It can get annoying but in the end that is what lets you get those amazing discounts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that the seasons and the weather have a huge impact on the business of the day. Just because numbers were low one day, does not mean that the employees slacked off all day. Sometimes it just means it was raining.

    I worked at Cycle Gear full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly work environment. Strong Team Work. Very flexible. Great work/home life balance.

    Cons

    Compensation. Benefits. A little clique-y. Lacks formal processes and procedures (however, I know they are working on it).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want Cycle Gear to grow, you will need to leave your muddy boots at the door and standardize a little more. Start small. Like adding name plates at every desk. Adding titles to individuals in the directory. Having an official signature in all correspondence. With the expected expansion, you will need to bring more polished individuals who are going to make the company move forward, they aren't going to come to a company that doesn't even have the simplest things.
