Pros

Can be a very fun enviroment to work in. Company has a lot of contests that are attainable. Fast Paced enviroment with constatn change each week and month and year. Management pay is highly competitive and so are the benefits Great advancement opportunities. Company is always changing and trying to better itself. Company is driven to make reporting easy for management to read and understand Corporate buyers and team are always looking for feedback from store management Company spends money on upkeep of store to make sure they are fresh and clean Stock incentives Discounts and cetting edge new golf product

Cons

Senior Management sometimes sets goals at unachievable levels and timeframes. Payroll lacking in order to give customer service as needed Bonus is lacking compared to other companies Guidance is usually opposite from district leadership, to Regional and then Corporate staff Highly Loss Prevention driven and focused company, sometimes a little overboard. Shipping from DC's can incur quite a bit of shrink and no control by store, but all accountability. Lack of training for management staff leads to high turnover.

Advice to Management

More training for Management staff, a set training schedule with District Leadership held accountable, has to be supervised by someone outside the District Team. Payroll has to be looked at more closely as staffing levels can be inadequate at times due to cutbacks. Competition is going to be based on service and at times there are no sales associates on the floor to help. Getting out of touch with the customer seems to be the trend as the company cuts back on payroll and is using more visual aid tools for customer self service. This is good for the customer who does their research but not for the 1st time parent of a little leaguer, football player, etc etc.
