    I worked at Duluth Trading Company part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun and interesting product line, generally good clientele.

    Cons

    It's fairly monotonous (as to be expected with part time jobs), and the products are overpriced. Their high prices and target market give the indication that their products are American-made, but the vast majority of their products are made overseas. Lastly, their profit margins are so large that it can be difficult to sell their products, trying to convince someone to buy a product that is only slightly differentiated from the product of their lower priced competitors.
