Pros

Excellent employee discount if you do a lot of outdoor stuff.

Cons

Pay isn't too great and the current economy won't help. If you're only looking for a short job, it would be fine. Don't look for long term growth in the retail sector, especially with a company based off of people extra money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some managers are much more apt at leadership than others.
