great work environment - especially for retail

Sales Specialist (Former Employee)
Bloomington, MN

ProsHigh level of respect within staff and management, comprehensive training and support, friendly atmosphere.

ConsIt is retail after all, so no one will be getting rich at this.

Advice to Senior ManagementThis was the best retail environment of a few that I had worked from high school age on. Everyone from top management down seems genuinely passionate about the outdoors, and I have made several lifelong friends that started as coworker relationships. Longevity of employment is the norm rather than the exception, and the 'corporate culture' is very healthy and employee-friendly. Keep up the good work; I'm glad for the years with you!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
