If you want a job that will consume your life, this is a great fit.
Sales executive (Former Employee) –  ScottsdaleNovember 25, 2018
I’m not a fan of a work environment that doesn’t allow you to grow. They put you in a box and expect you to stay there until your shift is over. Even if you’re helping people and doing a good job and making them money, that isn’t your box. General manager was good, but the others in management who were directly over you were not so good. Very unaccomidating to life outside of work. But those outside of management were absolutely solid. Great people to work with. It’s sad to say that we had more fun and got more done when our direct manager wasn’t there to micromanage us.
Pros
Discounts on golf equipment, always in the know with the industry, good business strategy.
Cons
Bad direct report managers, life consuming, no real job advancement.

2nd Swing has been a great place to work
Ecommerce (Current Employee) –  Eden Prairie, MNJune 21, 2017
I have been with 2nd Swing for over 15 years (6 with the original 2nd Swing, now in my 10th year since we have re-opened) and I will say that I have enjoyed my time working here.

I have personally held a number of roles in the company from starting as a cashier to managing the ecommerce department and everything in between. Management gives all employees ample opportunity to shine and those that excel are given many opportunities to grow within the company. By putting in hard work as an employee you are showing your investment in the company and the company will to invest in you.

We do have many seasonal employees, as a retailer in a specialty sport that is seasonal that is inevitable. Many of our leadership team started as seasonal employees and showed potential and grew into their current positions.

This is a fast paced, fast moving company that requires you to move quickly and adapt accordingly. It is a fun place to work and rewards those that work hard.

Broken promises and poor leadership
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNMarch 30, 2016
Management says one thing and doesn't ever follow up with it.

Turnover is high as there isn't much appreciation and compensation is terrible.
Pros
Can sometimes be a fun environment
Cons
Low pay, limited advancement, poor management, lack of communication
