    I have been working at Fanatics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fanatics has one of the best cultures I've ever experienced. There are few companies around that compare. Leaders are so down to earth and communicate with employees - everyone is treated as an equal and information is readily shared. Everyone has a voice here if they want one, although there are always those pockets of people who just complain instead of speaking up when they have a problem. Benefits keep getting better, opportunities are increasing. Keep up the good work!

    Cons

    Peak season is super busy - there is a lot of support and encouragement, but when you work around retail you are usually working a lot during the holiday season. Small price to pay in my opinion.

    Pros

    You can miss four days here and still work. Big break room! Great pay and discounts on merchandise.plenty of breaks and overtime in the holiday seasons such as Christmas and thanksgiving.

    Cons

    When you first start it could be slow so you’ll have to pick up trash some night or ATO the first week and VTO after you make 40 hrs a weeek you can keep building 10 to use.
