      Pros

      The discount can be nice but if you do the math of how much you save it doesn't make a big difference if you got paid more elsewhere and had to buy Scheels stuff at retail.

      Cons

      Lack of raises, only keeps up with inflation so 3% a year max. Bad/negative culture. The company enjoys sweeping unethical acts under the rug. HR does nothing but hire because the turnover rate is so bad. Be ready to work in a "fast paced environment" because you'll always be understaffed and will work until you are burnt out, hence the high turnover rate. You can approach most managers but anything mentioned will not be addressed or changed. Policies exist but are rarely followed and no one is held accountable for breaking policy.

      Pros

      Great Technology, Awesome discount, Work/life balance

      Cons

      If you like to be a part of a good old boys club, where people make it up as they go along, then it's the place for you. No training manuals. no policy manual. If you like having your hands held behind your back, and then get chewed out for not doing your job.

      Pros

      1. Everyone is very friendly and professional. 2. Leadership team treats employees with respect and compassion. 3. The employee discount is the best perk they have! 4. Flexible hours, depending on supervisor. 5. Pay is very competitive for retail.

      Cons

      1. It's a HUGE store to walk! But, it keeps you in shape, so it's not really a con.
