    I have been working at Oakley part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you’re looking for a Relaxed, Healthy Work environment come to Oakley. The discounts are braggable & the product is something you can stand behind as a salesperson. Their 2 year warranty on any new pair of sunglasses is absolutely free. And promotional contests with reasonable expectations exist within the locations as well as the company. Their hourly pay is negotiable to suit the employees lifestyle & all employees are given 175$ of “Staff dress” clothing of your choosing off the racks every 3 months to wear as a Uniform. Employees can also hold items in the event they want something but can’t afford to walk out with it at the time.

    Cons

    Honestly the only downside is most of the elderly customers come in looking to buy gifts for their relatives and have no idea what they are looking for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing
