I have been working at Golfsmith part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Commission. Co-workers are friendly. Some sales contests.

Cons

Lack of training. Hardly any communication between management and sales people. Commission rate is slowly declining.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Raise the commission, have sales contests - without those it would just be any other retail job. Also, train your employees more.

    Pros

    Great if you like Golf. They provide reasonable discounts to employees, and offer free courses as well for employees.

    Cons

    They spent more money on making the place look pretty, then paying employees. It seemed like the company had too many bosses and not enough money to go around to the people doing the hard work for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people more money, and less money on the decor.
