Great place to work!
Service Shop Technician (Current Employee), Grand Forks, NDMarch 25, 2015
Pros: Employee discount, fun atmosphere
Cons: clean shaven, laid back attitude at times
In a typical day at Scheels I will mechanically repair bikes, sharpen hockey skates, restring tennis racquets, and communicate with customers about the complications they're having with their sporting equipment. I have learned how to take care of the customer even if they are upset with the product they have purchased. Taking care of the customer and having them leave with a better attitude than when they entered the store is the main goal. Management is great at Scheels. They listen to what anyone has to say in the company and if a idea for change can benefit the company, then it is implemented. My co-workers make the job fun. Working together in a shop allows us to have fun, but still get the job done. The hardest part of the job is facing problems I can't solve at that moment in time and need to order parts and prolong the amount of time the customer has away from their activity. The most enjoyable part of my job is working on bikes since cycling is a passion of mine.

Softline Sales Associate/Manager (Former Employee), Omaha, NEMarch 3, 2015
Pros: atmosphere
Cons: leaving the company
After working for this company for 3 years, I've made some life long friendships. The culture here is like no other. I was able to learn about many products which I've learned to love. Not one day was the same since you were able to interact with each and every customer.

Women's athletic Speciality shop manager (Current Employee), Mankato, MNFebruary 24, 2015
Pros: great benefits, opportunity to attend sports events at discounted prices, free meals during holidays.
Cons: being on your feet all day.
Helping customers with their shopping needs by providing excellent customer service. Empowering other associates through product knowledge in the athletic department. Monitoring sales goals to ensure we're on pace with goals. Creating orders when product is low. My co-workers were positive and great to work with. The hardest part of the job was creating a balance between selling merchandise, crunching numbers, visual displays, and orders. The most enjoyable part is helping customers and providing exceptional customer service.

Shoe Sales Associate (Current Employee), Springfield, ILJanuary 27, 2015
Scheels is an excellent opportunity for those that are passionate about great customer service and product. Scheels is a company that provides an essential amount of training in order to become knowledgeable and confident about the products. The most enjoyable part about being a team member at Scheels is being able to have co-workers that are just as passionate about great customer service and product as I am.

Cashier (Former Employee), Rapid City, SDJuly 11, 2014
Pros: discounts
Cons: long shifts with no breaks except for lunch.
Scheels strives in excellent customer service! Customers were always first priority on this job. I was a cashier at Scheels which is an outdoor sports store. I learned communication skills and how to meet the needs of the customer to my best ability. Everyone got along at work and we were always in a good mind set. The hardest part was counting the credit card receipts from the till because there would be so many after a shift! What I enjoyed about the job was meeting new people and talking to the customers.

Scheels
Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee), Omaha, NEMarch 27, 2014
Pros: co-workers, contests, discount
Cons: retail hours, pay
Scheels is a wonderful company to work for. They give lots of opportunities to Sales Managers/Store Managers for bonuses and trips. They have a tremendous business plan. Overall, my favorite part about Scheels is the proximity of personal relationships with co-workers.

Unfortunately, I was not a Sales Manager and was not able to take advantage of the bonuses and trips. I was Cashier Supervisor and managed 150 people with one other supervisor. I learned a lot as I was in the position for 10 years. However, because I was in the position so long, my skills were nearly irreplaceable and I was not allotted opportunities for advancement. The pay was not equivalent for the amount of work associated with the job.

Part-time Cashier (Current Employee), Springfield, ILMarch 21, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, helpful management
Cons: n/a
Coworkers are friendly and helpful.
Scheduling is flexible. Hardest part of the job is dealing with issues that come with a retail position. Enjoyable part of the job is being able to form a relationship with the customer for those few minutes.

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Fargo, NDNovember 18, 2013
Clock in, go to the sales floor, if it was slow we would re-merchandise, straighten, if it was busy we would be first hand to the customers. i learned a lot about new items and how everything worked. the management was fun, easy to work with. my co-workers are my best friends. the hardest part was keeping yourself motivated when it was so slow. the most enjoyable part was just being with such a fun crew

Pros: discout was awesome
Cons: no breaks and most of the adults there act like high schoolers

Freight Team (Former Employee), Appleton, WISeptember 16, 2013
Pros: i loved interacting with co-workers and customers
Scheels was great because I got to work all over the store. I enjoyed cleaning and organizing the back rooms, but my favorite part was getting to interact and help the customers. There was a lot of managers at Scheels, but they were all very nice and easy to work with. I learned how to work as a team.
