    Pros

    Great outdoor shoe and clothing discount. Co-workers were usually fun to work with. Learn lots about outdoor clothing and footwear.

    Cons

    Can be very repetitive and boring at times. Only .25 cent raise a year. Not a whole lot of room for growth unless you become a store manager.

    Pros

    Great brands, great management, quality products

    Cons

    The "Wolverine Machine" operating out of Michigan is outdated, bureaucratic, misogynistic and old school (and not in a good way). If you can get in with one of the Boston-based brands, I highly recommend working here because you can avoid the mess that is Wolverine Corporate and focus on your own team and personal growth.

    Advice to Management

    Managers were great. The CEO is a turd.

    The company culture could use improvement
