A Great Side Job, Not a Career

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Madison, WI

Pros-Amazing Team Leads, Management and Coworkers
-Extremely Fun Work Environment
-While working with this company I truly met some amazing people. Management ranging from in store to regional to national was always extremely easy to work with and helpful.
-Provides continual performance feedback, pushes you to do your best and be your best

Cons-The only con I have to say about this job is the lure of working at UO Headquarters. I have seen many fellow employees and managers being told they were advancing to work in Corporate only to be shuffled around from store to store for years. Take this job as it is, a fun side job, but do not expect a career out of it.

Advice to Senior Management-Don't dangle the carrot so far ahead.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
