    I worked at Scheels full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people you work with are what make the job bearable. It’s retail so there aren’t a lot of perks to the job but your coworkers make it good.

    Cons

    There are so many managers, you get 16 different answers to every question. Getting time off is next to impossible, it’s like pulling teeth to take the time off that you earned.
