    I worked at Olympia Sports full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good product and loved working with my employees with a very flexible schedule. Also enjoyed getting to wear the product (after purchased) as a work uniform

    Cons

    Not enough compensation for work produced/demands, terrible yearly raises, tried to step down from management position to a part time position in order to pursue a last minute opportunity but was let go instead of getting support from upper management as it didn't suit their needs/desires.
