Pros

nice friendly co-workers.....can't think of anything else.

Cons

Unprofessional slave driving management. refused to hire enough employees, high turn-over rate, pay rate, advancement, and hours given are based on who sucked up the most. I was often the only associate in the department and when i suggested that there be more employees to improve customer service, I was given a condescending inconsiderate response by the store manager of all people!! Many of the employees are expected to do the impossible and aren't rewarded or even acknowledged when we somehow accomplished it. Crap definitely roles down hill in this company. I also encountered some of the most entitled, stuck up customers out of all the retail jobs that i've had. Run away and run FAST!!!!!

Advice to Management

stop using favoritism and be more considerate of employees.

    Pros

    Flexibility and learning aspects of different sports

    Cons

    Pay, lack of communication between employees and management.

    Advice to Management

    Take more responsibility with customer complaints and refrain from pawning off duties to employers when you are more than capable of getting the job accomplished yourself

    Pros

    Employees, discount, atmosphere at times

    Cons

    Constant shifting, hiring outside the company, no room for advancement w/o going to another store making 9 an hr

    Advice to Management

    Pay better more incentives. Contests went down from $75 to $50 to now $25 dollars since I have gotten their. Treating all of your employees like 28 hour part time employees won't keep us with no room to advance unless we move to another store for a measly dollar. Got hired for holiday and have to wait a whole YEAR AND A HALF for a review. Constant shift in management as well as it being terrible. No commission.
