    I have been working at Golf Galaxy full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    They do a good job of giving you training before they put you out there on your own. The employee discount is a plus.

    Cons

    can get a little boring just standing up there if you aren't busy, customers complain to you all the time

    Advice to Management

    Extend more opportunities for people to move from cashier to other positions. promote from within or you will lose workers
