    To district managers, please, show your appreciation to your employees and encourage their efforts so they can strive to achieve more.

    Pros

    3point5 discounts. Store discount. I can't really think of anything else. Started out great but then turned into the worst place I've ever worked.

    Horrible place to work. Pretty much ruined my life by working here. Developed debilitating anxiety and depression.

    Advice to Management

    "A bad manager can take a good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to flee and the remainder to lose all motivation."

    Great company to work for! Lots of opportunities to move up! Great chance to interact with others! Great job for someone who loves sports and sporting goods equipment.

    Higher salary for your store managers would keep them around longer.
