Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Wichita, KS – August 11, 2014
Pros: 4 week vaction `

Salesperson/watchmaker/keyholder (Former Employee), All of them – April 5, 2013
Pros: staff could get away with murder.
Cons: staff do get away with murder.
I enjoyed my stay there but in the end I felt as though I was waiting for someone to die or retire to move up any further than a keyholder. I was asked to do much outside of my job description as a salesperson and not compensated. I was not compensated for the extra responsibility of being a key holder either.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee), Lake George, NY – February 21, 2013
Pros: great summer job, work isn't hard, lunch paid for a lot in the summer
Cons: hours outside of summer are rare, no raise in pay and only at minimum wage
In the summer we run many sales in the parking lot of the outlets and at this time it is very busy. The summer is when everyone gets overtime and it is when work is the best. Management is very understanding if things come up and is also very flexible with scheduling.

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee), Wichita, KS and Gardner, KS – January 23, 2013
Pros: great discount on merchandise
Cons: short breaks
Productive workplace with good communication skills between employees and management. I would go in and review the day's work with fellow employees in crossover time.

The most enjoyable part of the job – more... would be succeeding. – less

(former employee) (Former Employee), Wichita Kansas – September 15, 2012
Pros: used to be a nice place to work
Cons: not a good employeer.
Do not recommend coleman as an employeer. The last thing they care about are their employees. They lay off people with no notice. The bosses are one for all and all for them only. Coleman will be lucky to be in business for 5 more years, simply because the only thing that sells are airbeds and they are junk. The appliance division has no work, because – more... they sent it all to China and I wouldn't buy a coleman stove or lantern if it was the last product on earth. The products do not work. In all fairness, Coleman used to be a very nice place to work, but all the old workers and bosses all retired or ran to other businesses. I did like most of my coworkers while I was there. I wish them only the best. – less

A typical day at work is going in at 6pm and start inventory. I've learned a lot from this company for SAP work center, driving fork lifts. Loved all my co workers. The hardest part of the job would be going in at 6pm and getting off at 6:30am. Enjoyable part of the job was going in there and seeing my co workers.
