good company, Corporate leaves a little to be desired
Merchandise Manager (Former Employee) – Vienna, VA – October 13, 2015
Store culture is good. Management depending on the store is great too. However, corporate always seems to be on a witchhunt of somesort and are to comfortable in there positions so they let things slip through the cracks and then when sh!+ hits the fan its rolls back down to the store level management teams. IT and technology is severally lacking.
decent pay, good work life balance
corporate structure needs some revamping, IT and P.O.S. are sub par
Good place to work. i have learnes a alot about customer service and retail management. This a great company for the retiree or partime student. To be honest, it is a challenginf job for someone to make a good salary as a full-time salesperson. You will have to hustle and know your product and have good customer communication skills. the commission percentages are not very high 1 to 10 % usually. Manufacturers often pay spiffs for selling their products which helps your paycheck. There is the opportunity to win contests and trips as well through those golf companies.
free golf lessons, discounts at golf courses, discounts on golf equipment, apparal

Golfsmith is a company that has adapted over the years. It has done a good job establishing relationships with its vendors. Golfsmith is attempting to stay relevent in the specialized golf industry. I believe in the markets of larger competitors will be their biggest challenge.

Golfsmith offers great benefits and perks to all its employees. They offer commission to Sales Associates such as myself. The management is great with solving customer and employee conflicts and issues.

The management and employees made me feel welcome from the start. This is a place where one can learn the tricks of the trade in a timely matter. Fast paced work, fun atmostphere and a genuine emphasis on team and teamwork. Great for students and full timers alike.
