    Pros

    Good Incentives if you like outdoor stuff.

    Cons

    They preach a Philosophy, Its in your Nature. They act like there outdoor people but yet they don't let any Outfitter take off Saturday and Sunday. You have no time to be doing outdoor activities.

    Advice to Management

    When you say your going to do something, do it.

    Pros

    Nice employee discount. Great Coworkers. Good interactions with customers.

    Cons

    I was employed part time and they would always schedule me for as many hours as possible without having to give me benefits. This resulted in me working several 6 day works weeks with several shifts that were only a few hours.
