    Pros

    25% in store discount and the vendors give you a website to go to for better discounts

    Cons

    Upper management litterally tricks you into their own hand. Do not take this as a career it is litterally a resume builder that's all it is. Low pay. They expect you to do everything drop your family life in the ditch. You WILL NOT HAVE A SOCIAL LIFE AS ANY MANGER HERE.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people. We have families. Don't work us like dogs.

    Pros

    They have a decent bonus every month, easy job, decent hours, benefits are okay but not the best weekly or bi-weekly memos.

    Cons

    Absolutely horrible communication. They use memos that come in a tupperware box on shipment days that may or may not have your memos for that week in it. They implement new things and don't give you any idea on how it's supposed to be done. Store resets almost weekly. Terrible delivery process. Outdated computers and shipment process.

    Advice to Management

    Give management an email for the company to easily get them accurate information quickly. Quit using outdated hardware and software.

    The ability to become familiar with the athletic target market and find their specific needs is a great tool for future career endeavors.

    Continue to train and prepare the employees for any situation they may need to handle whether it be pleased or upset customers.
