Fun to work, but hard to move up and commission is pitiful
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – East Brunswick, NJ – March 6, 2019
It's a fun work environment, especially if you like trying out the latest gear and gear heading with other associates and customers, but amount of tasks required by associates goes up every 3 months with no changes to pay, and management does nothing about it. Commission is convoluted and very time based, you're on a timer from the moment you clock in to the moment you clock out, and it's really difficult chasing those numbers to get where you want to be saleswise. That is in between shipment days where you are required to put away and merch out different gear while also trying to sell, thankfully only happening twice a week. It's not really a great job if you're looking to go full time, since the amount of sales you need to do on every given day to keep pace with the best bracket is astronomical. The most efficient way is to work part time on the weekends and a day or so during the week to make the most money possible based on daily sales numbers. Customer service is also a huge part of the job, which means that you can be dealing with some less then pleasant people on any given day. Management can be great, but at the end of ths day they're protecting the company, then you in that order.
Free lunches on busy days, great full time benefits, fun associates and lots of trying out new and old gear.
Unpaid lunch, stressful commission, stress of multitasking on any given day
