    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Sportsman's Guide

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
