High Praise From MeNov 29, 2018 - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Where to start? There is really nothing to not like about this company, at least from my perspective. I'm confused about the negative reviews on here. They all seem to center around pay and make it seem like you're slaving for minimum wage. That is not the case. I suppose if you show up and do the min imum to get through your shift, you should expect to be paid no more than the minimum-that works both ways, right? I've been here a few months and have receive 2 raises. And an e-mail just went out today informing us that we would be receiving bonuses for the past 6 months, equal to about 3% of pay. As other reviews have mentioned, the food is free. Not many jobs outside of the tech and very white collar sector feeding their employees. This is an alll you can eat kitchen. BIGGEST PRO is the owners and upper management. I'd say the (and I hesitate to type this) 'least liked' person in the owner or manager category is better than the person you like the MOST at your current or former job. They are great people.
Required to put 5 words here but trust me there are no cons.Continue reading

Great place to work if you are in transition or in schoolAug 22, 2016 - Department Lead in San Francisco, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Fun staff, management does not micro manage too much, freedom to merch and create signs. The great benefits for athletes include race reimbursements and 40% discount off everything. Full time staff get health coverage. Airline miles and PTO as well. Great for students as well!
Hard to move up if you don't plan to be here forever or want to be a manager, so enjoy the time spent and use it as a place to launch from...also, pay is basically minimum wage.Continue reading

think its chill and laid-back? think again.May 8, 2022 - Rentals in San Francisco, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
the benefits but they really are not all that glamorous or accessible to begin with..
This job should really be hiring seasonally as opposed to part or full-time. The title is misleading. They completely slashed my hours once ski season started dwindling down. They proved to be an unreliable employer whom markets a specific work culture as chill and laid back but its dysfunctional and unorganized at best. The managers played favorites and seemed to only judge you based in a relevant short-time span once reviews came around. Also, I was trained during the peak of the season while the rest had a comfortable training session before the season even began. Im not sure if I am justified in this regard but in my opinion, this a factor in my performance as an employee there but it was not considered during my review. Furthermore, I was seemingly portrayed as a worker who only excelled at grunt work? I always prided myself in working hard but never have I ever been made to feel ashamed of my grunt work ethic at a workplace. Shameless. But apparently, we were suppose to go far and beyond just renting and waxing ski for the meager minimum wage our county had to offer. But we were well compensated in 'healthy' snacks and flight miles I suppose.Continue reading

Part Time StaffJan 11, 2018 - Part Time StaffRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Forty percent discount on items.
Mean girls on steroids, fraternity like hiring staff, high expectations with very low pay (you can make more money working as a cashier at the Dollar store), nonexistent six month peer review so basically non existent raise conversations will take place. Their expectations are too high as they expect a seasoned athlete with expert product knowledge, but they pay you minimum wage. They start you out part time to probably not be forced to give you medical and other benefits. This is the lowest pay I ever received in my life. I was looking for a fun part time job, but unrealistic expectations and contradictory and unorganized management is laughable at best. Most people who work there live with their parents, significant other who makes more money to support them, or has tons of roommates. Basically you can not live off these wages. I’m sure you would be given more money either on unemployment benefits or on welfare.Continue reading
