      Easy Job

      Pros

      The job in general is pretty easy. You stand behind a counter and talk about firearms all day to customers and coworkers. Once in a while you will be required to complete a 4473, which is the paperwork required for a customer to purchase a firearm.

      Cons

      It is only a part-time job. The job can get boring if there are no customers and you are working by yourself. You cannot leave the sporting goods section unless there is another associate to keep an eye on the gun counter, which makes bathroom breaks difficult if you are working by yourself.
