    I worked at 2nd Wind Exercise Equipment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Selling using a consultative selling process to sell high end equipment, not low end product. Sales training at the time was great. Compensation plan was clear and not open to interpretation. Managers can make a good living if they sell fitness.

    Cons

    Working odd hours is always going to be a con when working retail. Benefits were not the best when I was working there. Tony Enrico about drove the business into the ground but I hear that has been fixed. Not much upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Work to get a better benefit package program. Bring back the consultative selling training. Bring back the awards, they go a lot further to motivate employees vs pay.
