Pros

Having a job, Team environment, growth opps if you brown nose the right ppl. Coachable employees at my store, TV's on the sales floor

Cons

As company goes from transforming itself from a retailer to brand, they have rethink a lot of different thnigs. the processes that are getting installed are great, but you have to let the store teams master them first, before add more and more on the plate. Morale is a 911. its the most thankless organization that I have worked for.

Advice to Management

Grow your own talent and promote within instead of hiring random SM's from other companies when you have men and women busting their humps night and day coming in on days off just to get looked over.

    Pros

    Chances to move up, if they like you.

    Cons

    The store i worked at was very sexually harrasing. Women were not as good as men. If managers wanted you out they would cut your hours, give you the worst hours, worst jobs to do, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Take some sexual harrasment classes.


  2. Employees are not treated fairly

    Pros

    Discount, overall great customers, fun job, fun environment, opportunities to learn new things. (I learned how to work on bows.)

    Cons

    Management!!! Leads, who are the lowest form of management, often don't do their jobs. They roam the store without working. District and Regional Management are worthless garbage. All they do is come in to the store, complain, offer no solution, leave and when the problem is fixed and it kills sales they complain that it didn't work, tell us to undo it, and say it should never have been changed.

    Advice to Management

    Guns should be sold only to people willing to fill out required paperwork. Stand behind your employees. Stop staffing a store that sees 3000 people a day with 13 workers while simutaneously staffing the store with 700 customers on average with 25 people. Use the other head.
