      Pros

      Forty percent discount on items.

      Cons

      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.

      Pros

      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!

      Cons

      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.
