The experience of a sales associate surely depends upon the location of your store

Lodge Sales Associate (Current Employee) State College, PA

Pros-flexible/ accomodating to college students schedules
-opportunities to work for manufacturers/ dealers in area of expertise (if you look for them)
-generally very friendly co-workers
-recognition is given where it is due
-valuable "real life" experience
-retail work in sporting goods offers a surprising amount of learning experiences

Cons-seems to be a large disconnect between the upper levels of the company and the store levels
- 3% commission is recieved only on warranties sold and only if warranties total is greater/equal to $350 or so (this is a monthly endeavor, if you dont reach the goal commission is forfeit)
- location in a college town means high turnover which often leads to miscommunication/constantly bringing someone new up to speed.
-getting a full time position is nearly impossible

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: Some of the discounts are ok, The other part… Cons: Where to start, this company stinks from the ground up. Honestly im not sure how they stay in business. Let me give you some… Advice to Senior Management: Before you promote some of these "professional" managers, how about getting them… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
