Pros

The people are nice for the most part. A way to buy under armour at a discount. You can wear workout clothes to work.

Cons

The company doesn't seem to like to promote from within. Their return policy is not static and varies from situation to situation. You have to sometimes do projects more than once because they change their minds too many times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote from within more. Require drug testing for hiring. Don't be afraid to say no to a customer.

    Pros

    Better than Wal-Mart, built in good social environment.

    Cons

    Your job experience is generally at the mercy of the area that you are working in. Different problems depending on whether you are in a rich or poor neighborhood. As is common in most retail positions, management could take or leave you as the turn over rate is generally so high.

    Pros

    Store discount, Online discounts, You meet some very nice people,

    Working here part time can point you in two directions: Either, you want to become part of management and move very slowly up the line, or you can get a reality check and find out that you are being paid nothing to work horrible hours and you will continue your career search elsewhere.

    Cons

    Pay, Hours, Weekends/Holidays, People will always complain about something, Many times you will find that your supervisors are less qualified and competent than you might be (that's just retail for you), There is always some type of disconnect among the managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking you know everything, take advice or appreciate your employees. Chances are they have more experience than you do in most areas.

    Ex: It is hard to take someone seriously who has never worked in sporting goods but managed a grocery store. That type of management isn't the same.
