    Pros

    Love working around the sports and outdoor equipment that I use. Employees work together well and have a good team feel in most cases. Good benefits packages. Store management for the most part seems to care about the hourly employees.

    Cons

    Lack of ability for career advancement. Takes to long to get promoted to manager and the amount of external hires for manager is very deflating for those aspiring to move. Payroll cutting takes place to much to the point that it affects the moral of all employees, stretches departments to thin and leaves full time employees with part time hours almost. If you make it to an hourly leadership position you are severely underpaid for the work that you do.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your hourly employees. Pay them what they deserve and don't cut hours so severely. It would definitely improve the morale of both store employees and store management. Get back to the focus on rewarding hardworking employees by promoting from within instead of looking outside for manager openings.


  2. Great place to start after graduating college

    Pros

    As long as time-off is requested 2 weeks ahead of time, your request is granted. Fun, energetic, atmosphere For all of you athletes; ESPN all day every day. You never mess a big game in any sport! Sales are easy to make and often enjoyable; however, you receive no commission. Great Deals on equipment and clothing. Not the greatest golf clubs to purchase and try out, but definitely not the worst! Decent starting pay out of college.

    Cons

    Takes time for advancement. Managers are rather unenthusiastic. Upper management could not care less who you are. They are almost entirely emotionless, and very unfriendly. For every $10,000.00 you make the company, you will be paid around $300-$411; at times you will earn the company this amount in a two day span... The only great deal you get on merchandise is during clearness events.

    Advice to Management

    support your sales personnel, promote at a quicker pace, understand your role as a supervisor, lighten-up, help to shape and at time change the lives of incoming graduates.
