I have been working at Sport Chalet part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

-good discount
-pro deals
-shop passes to local ski resorts
-generally pretty flexible when it comes to scheduling
-good product

Cons

-favoritism
-they've lost sight of what the company stood for...helping customers, providing expert advice and making honest sales
-they would rather you, as an employee, sell someone a product that is unnecessary than selling what is truly needed to make percentages
-no raises since 2008
-management doesn't communicate
-they expect projects to get done on top of making daily percentages, while cutting/eliminating shifts. Therefore the store and most departments are understaffed

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember the core values of the company. Train management to lead better. Being back the great training clinics for new hires.

    I have been working at Sport Chalet part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Easy atmosphere, not much hard work. Some managers are great.

    Cons

    Expected to fill in for positions you may not have experience with. Some managers are horrible. The company does not believe in raises. What you're hired at, is what you get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the salaries with experience.
