Cons

Lack of understanding of graphic design craft

Not bad

Summer job but no hours. Good for a person who loves the sport but equipment is overpriced so people go elsewhere for it. Upsaling on items that weren’t needed was pushed.

Pros

Not much expected of you

Cons

Terrible management

Best Job ever

Great place to work, great environment, great employees & managers. Have made life long friends working here and learned a ton about the game of lacrosse.

Manager

No HR Dept. This whole company is a joke. If you want to work here for peanuts while selling $400 lacrosse sticks then go for it. You will never move up in this company. They claim flexibility but anyone with a brain can see that's not happening. Also, when your training managers are lackluster and your hiring managers talk trash about those same training managers to new hires.. makes you wonder how anyone in this company has a job.

Pros

Literally nothing happens for 7 hours of the day

Cons

Nothing happens and the pay is a joke

Super laid back work environment

I actually really liked working at Lacrosse Unlimited. It was a great first time job for a high school student. I was a key holder when I became of age (which was 18). I did a lot of opening and closing procedures. Which consist of counting the drawer and making sure the store looks presentable for the day or the next. Every week we got a shipment of lacrosse equipment and I had to scan everything in to make sure we got everything and then had to restock the floor with all the new equipment. Every morning that I opened I had to deposit money from the previous day and make sure whoever was working the night prior pulled the correct amount of money out of the drawer.

Good

No corporate micro management, do your job and you get rewarded, room to move up in company, very understanding corporate system. Many hours and responsibilities for this position, could be paid more.

Impossible to advance unless you're family or a friend.

Upper management at Lacrosse Unlimited is not at all supportive. They assign tasks that they themselves do not know how to complete and simply expect you to "figure it out," without offering guidance. There is no Human Resources Department within the company, so nowhere to go if an issue with a coworker arises. Raises are promised and not given annually, and overtime is not compensated for. The majority of upper management are the owner's family members and friends, so many biased, unfair practices occur. Also, harassment from members of the management team is common, with poor language and derogatory terms used frequently, especially in the warehouse.

Fantastic Place to work

Mellow position that puts you in direct contact with learning valuable skills for future positions. Also involves you heavily with the local lacrosse community.

Lacrosse Unlimited Work

Working at Lacrosse Unlimited was very stressful as a manager, I had to do everything. Training employees was very important for my job. I would have to teach them everything from clocking in for payroll to knowing all of the merchandise and talking with customers about them. Teaching the computer system was also difficult at times. Customer service was the most important thing at the end of the day. If I trained my employees to make sure that every customer that walked in the door had a wonderful experience with us then I felt like I've done my job.

Lacrosse Unlimited

It is a good job if you're desperate. Management needs to lighten up. Stores have been closing left and right because they expanded to fast. Not the best lacrosse store out there.

tough to fit in if not part of inner cicrle

This is a family owned business who has no interest in advancing outsiders regardless of talent or work ethic. Compensation is laughable and culture is terrible. Must have thick skin and high patience

Decent Company With Poor Management Track Record

I've worked for Lacrosse Unlimited on two separate occasions. Unfortunately, on both occasions, management was less than stellar and drove me to search for employment elsewhere.

Fun and friendly work environment, goals in store to practice lacrosse.

Position needed to be self-disciplined, taking initiative and clean and maintain store cleanliness. On slow days, having to find work when it seems there was none. Staff was like a family, would have monthly meetings to find out what was working and what was not working.

Pros

Discounts, laid-back environment.

Cons

Normally work alone so when the store would get busy, it became stressful.

Terrible treatment of employees and store managers

Unless you're a family member or friend of the owners, there is no room for advancement in this company. Managerial hours required are usually 50+ per week with no overtime pay. No bonuses, not even a merry christmas or happy holidays.

Pros

none

Cons

everything

Fun laid back work environment

Great place to work and learn the ropes on managing a store. This job taught me the ins and outs of customer service and retail. Easy to work your way up but at a certain point there is a cap.

Pros

Friendly environment

Cons

Poorly organized

Must love lacrosse to work here.

Lacrosse Unlimited was a good work experience but the lack of advancement opportunity was the reason I left. Good job if you're just out of college or live in a lacrosse hotbed.

Pros

Discounted lacrosse gear

Cons

Low pay for my area

fun place to work good with good people

It was either incredibly busy and you had to bring work home with you or very slow seeing 5 total customers per day. Most of the managers that I had were very good.

Part time work

Good part time work for lax minded people. My time spent at lacrosse unlimited was great. I was responsible for closing/opening operations and managing a team.
