    Pros

    They give you some freedom to do your own thing, but creativity is really taken away most of the time.

    Cons

    There isnt enough freedom given to the employees for them to really sell. They have such a strict environment.

    Pros

    The sports environment plays to the people who love sports, which makes it an easy place to work at.
    Being team-oriented to achieve goals speaks on behalf of how management goes about doing business.

    Cons

    Management changes constantly with new people and new practices. One we adjust, just seems like there is someone new to change processes again.

    Pros

    Not a very demanding job. Still able to stay busy during the day. Management is very responsive.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of hours, and even though the work is not hard, I'd still prefer to do something that pays more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep cashiers busy.

    Pros

    Working here can be exciting, fast paced, your coworkers get to know you well and usually have a positive team attitude.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are that managers are not afraid to tell you when you've made mistakes and some lower level managers come off as rude

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should look at the way they are treating other managers and their employees
