Pros

They have good discounts and its a fun atmosphere to work in.

Cons

Too much pressure on the employees from store managers. They need to help uneffective employees before threatening their jobs.

Advice to Management

Train your store managers how to help their employees make their quotas.

    Pros

    learn skills in skate board repair and assembly, discount on clothing (only through the store manager though), and cool atmosphere

    Cons

    essentially they pay you minimum wage, expect you to hit unreasonable sales quotas in little time (ie. $10,000 in sales on a four hour shift on a Tuesday night), they criticize when you sell fewer yet more expensive items compared to many items of little monetary value.

    Advice to Management

    Give your sales force real incentive to hit quotas, by 1. making them realistic and achievable goals for the location and time span 2. Give them commission on all sales not just ones over $100 3. Do not give your employees a smile or a frown face next to their name reflecting their performance, This is not a preschool class, it is truly an insulting form of motivation.
