    I worked at Edwin Watts Golf full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Corporate leadership built company on two key principles; customer service and sales with integrity. Consistently strives for employees to have highest "Product IQ" knowledge to better serve the consumer. Store managers are some of the most loyal employees I've ever seen in the business world.

    Cons

    Stores could have benefited from computer technology much sooner than originally implemented. A particular retail software transition was detrimental to customer service and ultimately sales success. New owners have proven and efficient retail sales software and applications.

    Advice to Management

    Just as Edwin Watts was founded, pay close attention to store manager feedback. Continue to upgrade fitting software in the stores as well as in-store hitting areas. When feasible, consider stocking products that sell within that specific market.

    I worked at Edwin Watts Golf part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone I worked with was very relaxed and easy to get along with. The schedule was always very flexible. I met a lot of customers that I still keep in contact with.

    Cons

    The worst part about this job is that it went out of business. I was really enjoying my time with the company, and had no choice but to leave once my location was shut down.

    Advice to Management

    Management always did a great job of making sure everyone was doing what they were supposed to be doing, as well as making sure everyone was happy.

    Pros

    the best part of working here is that you are learning about golf every day. Also, all the costumers are very respectful and professionals.

    Cons

    I would said that nothing is wrong with this company right now. But, areas that they can improve is having more media advertising across the south.

    Advice to Management

    The promotions sometimes are great but usually they don't offer any big promotion with clubs.
