    Pros

    I get to work with the things I love everyday! I see all the new equipment before everybody else and helping customers enjoy the same passion I have.

    Cons

    The employee discount could be better. Our upper management could do a better job with allocations. We are a specialty store run by a big box corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that we are a specialty business not a division inside a Dicks store. therefore we can sell different apparel and we get to hear first hand what our customer needs.
