Great company to grow with

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Orlando, FL

I have been working at New Balance part-time for more than a year

Prosfamily company dedicated to employees and customer service
great products for support and performance, as well as casual wear
many opportunities are given to grow within the company
close-knit environment
lots of benefits for full-time including co-pay for doctor visits as well as tuition reimbursement
part time benefits include gym membership reimbursement and paid vacation days.
making the sales goals everyday means everyone gets a "spiff" on payday

Conswork can be very boring when things are slow

management stresses walking around the store even when there aren't very many customers shopping.

breaks are very short for anyone working a shift that's less than 8 hours

Advice to Senior ManagementI stared at this section for quite some time trying to think of some sort of advice. I got nothin'. This is a very good company to work for, especially compared to other retail companies.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
