    Pros

    Good payment per hour, nice environment

    Cons

    The responsible for the runners, don't really care, they were all the time talking bad things about each other, there were just professionals when their bosses were around, didn't give enough training to the runners...

    Advice to Management

    Be more appreciative of the ones who really are trying to do a good work.

    Pros

    Competitive Pay
    Relocation Opportunities
    Large Dealer Network
    Strong Training Programs
    Great Brand Portfolio

    Cons

    The biggest struggle I faced was the competing agendas among top management (C-Level), regional presidents, and general managers in relation to my career development. The lack of communication between each level and myself is what led me to pursue other opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Open up the dialog a little more with your employees who wish to take on additional responsibilities.

    Pros

    It was a job.
    Good people who work hard.

    Cons

    Company does not repay loyalty, dedication, seniority.
    Hire people with no boating knowledge in at more money than current employees.
    One store may have 4 separate employees doing 4 separate jobs - -one store may only have 1 person doing all of those jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Treat loyalty with respect and reward dedication if you don't want a lot of turnover.
    Employees will stay if they are paid what they are worth.

    Pros

    Great Benefits-Med/Dent, PTO, 401K , Stock purchase plan
    Great customers
    Can be fun at times
    Great experience in boating/education as well
    Nice co-workers

    Cons

    Long hours
    Pay raises far & few between
    Must volunteer for weekend customer events
    Work comes first then family

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your Team Members if not for them where would Marinemax be? Cut out the annual December executive's Cruise, and reward you're Team Members instead. I'm sure that gesture would be very appreciated. Get back to a more family oriented company within. It would payoff in the long run.
