Demanding for full time no employee growth,raises, and thank you for hard work by staff.

Advice to Management

Needs to look at store numbers as depts to fully understand what is needed instead of lumping districts together for replenishment.

    Pros

    Fellow employees are an interesting lot and customers really appreciate good and knowledgable attention. Dealing with sporting goods can be a lot of fun.

    Cons

    It appears that employee morale is the least of their concerns. There is a pervasive climate of fear of the corporate staff, many of whom have no experience in the sporting goods industry.

    Advice to Management

    Do a much better job of training management and of communicating up and down the line. Encourage input from employees. Close the locations that are not paying their own way.

    Pros

    The main reason to work here is the fact that you get great discounts on products that sport chalet sells. Also, if you are a student they are willing to work around your school schedule.

    Cons

    Management basically considers all the sales associates to be pawns. They don't really care about you as individuals, and consider anyone to be replaceable at anytime. If you want to work there full time be prepared to work 6-7 days a week, and get called on your days off, which would be more acceptable if they didn't pay between $10-12 an hour for regular full time employees. Also, they black out full months of the year where you are forbidden from taking a vacation, even though there is always another person who would have been willing and able to pick up your extra shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating employees like they are not important. Stop cutting back on training hours, because without any training how do you expect people to keep considering your employees to be "experts"?
