Pros

If you enjoy boating and the boating lifestyle, West Marine might be a good fit. Customers and associates share similar interests, and working in a field that you honestly enjoy can be refreshing.

Cons

Retail is seasonal. Payroll in the "off season" is a real challenge. Managers are paid salary, so winter hours can be long, while floor associates are begging for hours. This can be difficult in lean times.

Advice to Management

Continue to listen to feed back from the sales floor and store level. We are all in this together!

    Pros

    Great Company. Nice culture and atmosphere

    Cons

    Salary is a bit low compared given proximity to the Bay Area. If you live Salinas/Watsonville, salary is commensurate with cost of living.

    Advice to Management

    Improve performance of website.
