Busy workplace with heavy emphasis on customer service
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Reno, NV – August 15, 2018
Scheels' main focus is on appreciating customers and giving them excellent, unique, and friendly service. If you accomplish that, you'll likely be in the good graces of your manager. However, there are monthly sales goals to be met (getting at least 2 credit card sign-ups if your part time, 4 if you are full time), and if you don't make those goals, you'll be required to attend an extra meeting on top of the 3-4 you already need to attend a month. Co-workers were generally fine and hard working, and managers tend to be strict, but can be worked with.
The biggest con comes from the dishonesty of management toward employees. They will tell an employee they have a chance at a promotion, and then backpedal and criticize the employee when the opportunity for promotion arises.
