    Call Center Rep

    Great experience

    Call Center Representative (Former Employee) South Saint Paul, MN

    ProsI worked for years during high school. they were very understanding and flexible with my schedule and hours.

    ConsIt slows down a lot in off seasons, and they typically have to let a lot of people go. In addition, it was great when I was in high school but I wouldn't call it a career.

    The Sportsmans Guide is an ok place to work in the Customer Service Department.

    Customer Service Department (Current Employee) South Saint Paul, MN

    ProsThe dress code is casual and the atmosphere is casual. They offer full benefits including paid time off. The Human Resources will work with you. Good 401K plan. There an annual review. They have their own parking lot. It is a good steady job. The Management is firm but fair. The director, she is reasonable and will take time to talk with you need to discuss issues you may be having. Montlhy meetings where you can choose gifts placed on a table for a customer compliment. Occasionally there is a barbeque and food catered from Famous Daves.

    ConsHigh number of calls per hour to meet their expectations. The amount of time for after calls and using the bathroom is lacking. The raise per year is usually $.25 per hour if you meet their expectations. Very strict attendance and late start guidelines. If you are late from a break or late for work, it goes into a rolling year time frame and takes a year to drop off. The work quality of life depends on which Team Lead you are assigned to. The work space cubicles are small and a lot of employees in a small space.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe management is good but it also depends on who your team lead is.

    Working in a unprofesional, competitive job that needs more professional Team Lead position.

    Call Center Representative (Former Employee) South Saint Paul, MN

    ProsThey aren't focused on any special age group. They offer seasonal positions, it's actually good for an extra job. Decent money in the call canter area. Very diverse in regards to hiring policies

    ConsAbsolutely lacking in professionalism and feedback ,work ethics, and virtually not practicing confidentiality rights. Management does not have a policy if a lead agent yells, demeans or embarrassing employees daily. VVvvvvery poor habits when discaplineing employees in front of other employees.
     Highly operated on favoritism in most areas. Management does not offer an employee on how to improve at their job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a management class. Monitor Floor Leads and Team leads on better ways to motivate employees.

    It's fine, it's a job

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsThe merchandise discount. We get merchandise at cost. It's a great job if you like to hunt, fish, shoot, military, etc.

    ConsExcept for customer service and call center, there is not much turnover so advancement opportunities are slim to none in other positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo what other companies do and make it a point to promote from within. If a current employee meets the minimum qualifications for a position, they should be selected rather than someone from outside the company.
