Pros

Decent discounts on "fun" sporting good products, some repeat customers that are enjoyable to interact with, bonuses are based on your particular store's sales so there's incentive to push the associates to do well.

Cons

The hours aren't good. The company sets expectations on metrics and when you achieve your goals they are never satisfied, so they simply up the goal or ask why you aren't doing as well as the top performer in your area.

    Pros

    Performance oriented, they are always striving to be better than not just the competition, but themselves as well. Most driven company I have ever worked for. Focused on success. The Executive level was highly accomplished and capable.

    Cons

    Mid and entry level executive management such as District Managers and RVP seem to be in fear for their jobs at all times. I saw a great deal of turnover at this level, and most in these positions seemed to act out of fear instead of driving the business properly. The frantic pace coupled with perfect execution leads to chaos at times focused on trivial things as opposed to customers and business. Drop everything tasks directing you to move widget X two spots to the left on the gondola would require sign offs to 3 different people, and 7 Emails regarding the movement of a single widget. Most were capable of running their business with less interference, which would have led to higher service and sales figures.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the big picture, leave the minutia alone. The company is driven, and their success is clear. As they transition to best in class practices across the board there will be pain, but I believe they will be a strong player for years to come

    Pros

    ok pro deals if you know how to get them

    Cons

    no manager will tell you the same thing you do a project one day and have to change it 5 times before they tell you i guess that will work. 3% a year is not enough. Product ordering is a joke never have what you need

    Advice to Management

    communication just because you send 19 emails that all say the same thing breathing down everyone's neck means nothing if there is no direction
