    I have been working at Sportsman's Warehouse part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work. Great staff and management. I never have to force a smile. I really love it there.

    Cons

    Working hard towards advancement, no body's going to give you a free ride just for showing up.

    Advice to Management

    Management is awesome and working just as hard as everyone else.

    I worked at Sportsman's Warehouse full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employee discount is the BEST I have ever seen in retail!!! Fun place to work if your into what they sell. Easy job if you know what your talking about. Great perks (free stuff) In the 2 years I worked for them I received around $3000.00 Worth of free stuff. Most don't come even close to that BUT if you know what your talking about you will have regular customers that will only deal with you and that is how I did it.....

    Cons

    The young management IE: the oldest member of management was 27 and that was the store manager. There is a lot of gossip. 85% of the employees have no clue what their selling and lie to get a sale. I worked in the hunting department and out of 14 of us there were only maybe 4 that have ever hunted.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. Learn some management skills.

    I worked at Sportsman's Warehouse (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Had a great team, used to be a favorable place both to work and shop. Used to have experienced managers willing to help everyone.

    Cons

    Store manager is abusive and discriminates against anyone he doesn't like. If you speak to corporate about him, you get written up, pushed out, or fired. Favorites are definitely played in this store/company. Pay is low, and managers are given little support from store manager.

    Advice to Management

    Put people in place who actually care about the employees and company alike.

    I have been working at Sportsman's Warehouse full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This job is a good way to learn the ins and outs of a warehouse with nice management and chances to learn how to use motorized equipment, it also only works you three to four days a week with three different shifts to decide from.

    Cons

    The security is not great at this job, they have cameras everywhere and yet when peoples cars get broken into they will do nothing to stop it, when receiving promotions the pay grade does not go up much and the amount of work added to your job goes up twice as much

    Advice to Management

    Please either have better cameras or have a safer area in which to park our cars I don't like having the idea that things in my car are not safe there.
