Good Introduction to the how the Business World Operates
Purchasing Specialist (Current Employee), Columbia, MOJune 15, 2014
Pros: good pay and excellent work/life balance
Cons: work is too process oriented, not a lot of opportunity to advance
The Good:

The hiring process does a good job of selecting candidates that will mesh well with our company's culture. As a result, the people you work with are great. The benefits and salaries offered are generally competitive. I haven't worked for a manager yet that I didn't like. The work culture/environment is very family oriented and flexible. Also, if you show the initiative, you will receive mentoring and opportunities to take on more responsibility.

The Bad:

Lower and middle management doesn't have a lot of authority. Decisions are often made at the top and lack the appropriate perspective. Most positions entail very mundane and process-oriented work. Inconsistent internal promotion methods make advancement difficult and uncertain. The structure of the company simply doesn't facilitate a lot of opportunity to earn promotions.

Just watch your back....
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), ColumbiaMarch 20, 2014
Pros: fun job, awesome co-workers, great pay.
Cons: meddling supervisors
Honestly, the job was a lot of fun: i came in knowing very, very little about gun/ammo etc. I learned so much and enjoyed chatting with old veterans about their years in the war and all that. I also enjoy doing the "detective" work, finding replacement parts and whatnot. having my own desk and space was nice and i made a lot of wonderful finds. I could set my own hours. Saturdays during the busy season were meant for responding to emails and this was relaxing because you would listen to your music and even if a customer had a rude email, you could take a few moments to get a professional response.

Like the summary says: watch your back. I was fired from Midway because a customer apologized to me for being rude when i couldn't give him a straight answer about a given situation via him wanting to spend $1200 on an order that came from an almost expired sales flyer-until i spoke to a supervisor. I had documented everything and handled it as instructed: the next day I was fired, no questions asked. A few months later, a good friend and inside source me told me a different supervisor, lets call her "Betty" NOT my own, flagged the call, changed my documentation, and took out the portion of the call where I spoke to someone else about the problem. Surprising enough, a few months before this happened, my supervisor lets call him "Bob" disclosed to me that "Betty" didnt believe I belonged at Midway.
For a lack of better words, this job picked favorites, and everyone is disposable.
Funny enough: I miss this job every day.

You're either with them, or against them
Administrative (Former Employee), Columbia, MOMarch 6, 2014
Pros: starting wage
Cons: everything else
If you don't want to join the NRA, and or you appreciate diversity- not just within the work place but in general- then this antisemitic, homophobic, men's club is not for you.

Fun Atmosphere

Really enjoyed my co-workers that I worked with. If the Pay was better i might have stayed. I enjoyed the time I was with them regardless of the pay.

Productive and very easy to learn
Call Center Agent (Current Employee), Columbia, MOMay 21, 2013
Pros: can do just about anything as long as youre not distracted while on a call
Cons: busy, knowledge does benefit and can hurt if you don't know very much
Nice workplace, but can be racist. Usually busy because we sell ammo, etc. but a very laid back job. Co-workers usually stick to themselves because of the phones and how busy it can be.

A typical day consists of packaging and shipping products from the warehouse. Management is great and co-workers are easy to work with.
