I worked at Sport Chalet part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Pro-deals
Discounts (cheap scuba classes, free rentals year round, employee discount)

Cons

Management is horrible. They're incredibly sexist and favor men over women. Always up and down, different moods every day, no stability. Would stay past midnight many times for closing. Have to push credit cards, warranties, loyalty cards, etc onto people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train your employees, and maybe get some training yourselves.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Wages are entry level due to current state of the economy, however, worth the job!

    I have been working at Sport Chalet full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Surrounded by your passions. Surrounded by people that share your passion. A lot of employees in the store compared to other companies so there's a real team atmosphere.

    Cons

    A lot of performance-driven goals without much reward. A very negative corporate work environment. Very poor pay policies at the moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust that there IS talent at the store level and seek them out. They will help your company grow. Don't be so conservative.
