    I worked at Summit Racing Equipment full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    For retail its full time hours with benefits.

    Cons

    It's not a retail job, it is stressful and the computer system is demanding and tricky and all of the management who should know the software look to us to help them.

    I worked at Summit Racing Equipment part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Most of higher up management cares about you and are friendly, they give you most days requested off, pretty easy job, great discounts, free food (bagels, donuts, vege trays) once a month - honestly one of the best jobs I had while in college

    Cons

    Can be boring at times when there are no orders or customers, you may get sent to a new department for something else often

    I have been working at Summit Racing Equipment full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is alright if you have been there long enough but you can get better pay else where. Employee discount is great.

    Cons

    I have been here for almost 2 years and there seems to be no guidelines to training or placement of employees. We have been understaffed and in the past few months half of the longer lasting employees have mentioned looking for other jobs and they havent been able to keep any of the new hires. You have to be team lead’s pet in order to be trained on equipment and there is no rhyme or reason on schedule placement. During my time here Ive been asked by my superiors to lie to new hires and compensation to write a good review. It is completely mentally draining.

    I worked at Summit Racing Equipment full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Made some good friends with coworkers (while they lasted) Absolutely no other pros to this job.

    Cons

    Overworked. Understaffed. Underpaid. Does not follow safety protocol. Will work you outside your department but will not match other departments pay. Make you stay late but send you home early another day so you can never get over time. Management has zero involvement. Management never steps out onto the floor, they always stay in their office with the door closed. Production standards continue to rise while staff continues to become smaller and smaller. Levels mean nothing, level 1 will do all jobs while level 3 barely does anything but gets paid way more. Management is rude and plays favorites. Zero room for advancement. Team leads are management's friends and management is the owner's friends. Experience and work ethic goes unnoticed. Pays incredibly lower than any other warehouse in surrounding locations. Discriminates against workers. Unsafe/faulty equipment. This is a job for highschoolers or monkeys, not a working adult with bills and career goals. Work every single holiday. Work weekends. Don't expect any form of social or family life. Team leads love their cell phones. Team leads love not working. EXTREMELY high turnover rate. 65+ employees in and out during my first 8 months. Rethink submitting your application.
