Pros

They aren't focused on any special age group. They offer seasonal positions, it's actually good for an extra job. Decent money in the call canter area. Very diverse in regards to hiring policies

Cons

Absolutely lacking in professionalism and feedback ,work ethics, and virtually not practicing confidentiality rights. Management does not have a policy if a lead agent yells, demeans or embarrassing employees daily. VVvvvvery poor habits when discaplineing employees in front of other employees. Highly operated on favoritism in most areas. Management does not offer an employee on how to improve at their job.

Advice to Management

Take a management class. Monitor Floor Leads and Team leads on better ways to motivate employees.

    Pros

    The merchandise discount. We get merchandise at cost. It's a great job if you like to hunt, fish, shoot, military, etc.

    Cons

    Except for customer service and call center, there is not much turnover so advancement opportunities are slim to none in other positions.

    Advice to Management

    Do what other companies do and make it a point to promote from within. If a current employee meets the minimum qualifications for a position, they should be selected rather than someone from outside the company.

    I worked at Sportsman's Guide (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    good pay and benefits excellent co-workers.

    Cons

    after almost 20 years of dedicated service when I would work whenever asked, often called in the middle of the night to handle problems,gave me the impression I would have a job until retirement. came in one day and entire department was outsourced to a contract company.this is not how you treat people that helped build your company.

    Advice to Management

    don't kick your dedicated employees to the curb to save a few dollars.
