ProsDecent discounts on "fun" sporting good products, some repeat customers that are enjoyable to interact with, bonuses are based on your particular store's sales so there's incentive to push the associates to do well.

ConsThe hours aren't good. The company sets expectations on metrics and when you achieve your goals they are never satisfied, so they simply up the goal or ask why you aren't doing as well as the top performer in your area.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: Not too many pros for the footwear department. I guess… Cons: Footwear department is HARD on a person. Constantly running up and down stairs and climbing shelves.
