    Pros

    The job was awesome. It was a really relaxed, really fun and friendly environment centered around sports - can't get any better than that. As long as your doing your job management has nothing but kind words to say to you if anything at all. Awesome opportunity.

    Cons

    Can't really think of too many cons. If I had to nitpick maybe the hours. I was part time it was hard to get 35-40 hour work weeks unless you're covering for your partner..

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Management was enthusiastic, vibrant, with a great sense of humor. I absolutely loved management honestly.

    I worked in the shoe department. I learned a lot about shoes and got to help people choose the right ones for them. It helped with communication and sales experience.

    The work outfits. But those have changed now to comfortable sport clothes.

    Pros

    Fair pay, opportunities for advancement, fun environment.

    Cons

    Very "by the book," no leniency.

    Advice to Management

    Police yourselves and each other. one of the managers I worked with spent the majority of her time at work playing on the internet or just sitting in the office while everyone else worked hard.

    Pros

    A lot of fun working with a talented team, opportunity to advance and make more money at the job.

    Cons

    Tough to stand on your feet upwards of 8 hours a day. Management plays favorites and wont let you have days off.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to give you ideas about how you can set up the store more effectively and give them some room to grow.
