    A good option if you just want a job

    Pros

    They don't overwork you too much and lunch can be up to 45mins a day. They have very set in stone schedules so you won't be moved around too much and you can negotiate days off.

    Cons

    They require you to bring your own tools to work, the tools available for everyone are low quality, they aren't very focused on quality, and they do not accept suggestions or requests to improve the workplace either for the staff or for the company as a whole.

    Shiny on the outside, toxic on the inside.

    Pros

    None really. I guess working with bikes is fun, but this is one of the most toxic places I’ve ever set foot in.

    Cons

    -low pay -toxic, fraternity-style atmosphere -not welcoming if you’re different at all -frantic with a healthy healing helping of politics mixed in. -at least $10,000 in rent per month is paid out for the greenlake location year round instead of even coming close to paying a living wage. I’ll leave it to you to figure out who owns the building and why that’s atrocious.. -the political culture makes it so your complaints or concerns will only get you reprimanded with no back up. Good luck. -I was bullied and manipulated by members of the staff going all the way up the ladder. Not the nature welcoming environment that the marketing will have you believe.

    Still a job at the end of the day.

    Very unfair if you were born with a disability

    Pros

    Great facility and coworkers, good resources, great products

    Cons

    I just felt that the management could do more for employees born differently. I was literally denied the opportunity for a raise when it came up for this reason: I was given a reasonable accommodation as suggested by my doctor and he said that disqualified me from any raises.

    Fun, active place to work

    Nov 20, 2016 - Bike Mechanic in Seattle, WA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Staff is passionate about cycling, and very supportive of each other. Very active community and lifestyle, lots of great riders and racers, but lots of new riders too--everybody is welcome. Great deals on bikes and bike parts, and you will learn a lot about bikes!

    Cons

    Established company, has been around for a while, so management doesn't seem to want to "rock the boat" and risk any big changes. Pay is standard for retail, which is still relatively low ($15/hr to start)
