      Incompetent corporate management - kiss their customer base goodby

      Pros

      Easy job, nice people to work with

      Cons

      Incredibly uncompetitive pay scale. Extremely high turnover. Corporate management is totally and utterly incompetent especially their purchasing dept. Their firearms dept. was a disaster before it was driven into the ground by corporate. They lost 90% of their customer base when they got rid of their firearms, hunting, fishing and clothing depts.

      Pros

      Only perk is the discount

      Cons

      Company closes its 2 largest departments(fishing and shoot sports/hunting). Then get asked if I wanted to stay onboard and I agreed. 2 weeks later they lay off half the store with no warning. Only focus on upwelling costumers on memberships and credit cards. Poor management at the corporate level. Worst pay in the industry. Avoid at all costs.

      Pros

      Taking a lunch break whenever you wanted, could mostly do work at your own pace, in the beginning I was always learning and never bored got along with most of the coworkers, but after a while I felt not part of the group too good to be true, I took the job out of desperation

      Cons

      Too much work for not enough pay, like digging in nasty trash and not getting any help and expected to do nonsense jobs quickly and efficiently. I didn't get extra pay because I wasn't on a register selling memberships They literally broke my spirit and killed my soul
