Horrible management from top to bottom

Ski Hardware (Former Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

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

Pros- Purchasing perks for vendors, i.e. snowboards, lift tickets, clothing, etc.
- Fairly little work is necessary

Cons- Management does not care about you, I know several people from different stores and it is the same throughout all.

- Lunch breaks are 30 minutes, even if you are working a 10 hour shift.

- If manager's do not like you, they will restrict your hours until you quit.

- They push for you to make credit card sales, yet there is no incentive for doing so.

- Managers treat you like another minion

- Closing shift is the worst of any company I've ever seen. If store closes at 9 PM, you are lucky to be out of the store by 10:30.

Advice to Senior Management- Extend lunch breaks
- Do a better job of hiring
- Make an incentive for credit card sales, otherwise nobody cares.
- Closing is an absolute joke. Get it together.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
