I have been working at SwimOutlet.com full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Family environment Technology oriented Casual work environment/dress code Fast paced work environment Wear many hats Learn a lot and get exposure to a lot of areas that you wouldn't get in a bigger company Gym on site Fitness classes offered 4x/week Catered lunches 2x/week Gourmet food truck 2x/week

Cons

Because of how fast the company tempo is, sometimes information is not passed down quickly enough. It's good that things happen fast and a lot can be done in a short time, but communication is key to making sure people are on the same page.

Advice to Management

Make sure to continue to communicate as things happen fast at Swimoutlet. Over-communicating is better than not enough communication.

    Pros

    Catered lunches twice a week Young colleagues "Fun" atmosphere Interesting work if you're interested in e-commerce Excellent place to get experience

    Cons

    Lack of adequate direction from managers Pay is pretty low for industry standards Very little room for growth or upward mobility No rewards for hard work Sales and the bottom line is a top priority High turnover

    Advice to Management

    Keep good, fair managers Communicate with your team Reward employees for their hard work Foster a work environment that promotes good work Pay employees what they're worth - you will get better workers, have a better work atmosphere and you won't have to waste time and money to train new ones

    I have been working at SwimOutlet.com full-time

    Pros

    Friendly Atmosphere, Gym Usage, Catered Food

    Cons

    Hard Work unfortunately goes unrecognized. Do yourself a favor and if hired you're in for a really fake work atmosphere. You will be used and you'll never realize it because the managements are professional in making it seem like you're doing great there.

    Advice to Management

    Unprofessional, I did my best to look past these reviews towards the beginning of hiring but unfortunately they were correct, hard work does go unrecognized.
