Busy workplace with heavy emphasis on customer service
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Reno, NVAugust 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.
Pros
commission + hourly, flexible hours, good co-workers
Cons
strict sales goals, dishonest management, strict dress code

Cafe Employee (Former Employee) –  Sparks, NVAugust 2, 2018
Schools provides you with a great employee discount, but other than that it is not worth it. The management is not friendly, and they don't care about you

Fun place to work, does not work around schedules well
Server (Former Employee) –  Springfield, ILJune 14, 2018

Pros
Nice Benefits
Cons
Not schedule friendly

Great culture and workplace to have fun and grow
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Moorhead, MNJune 8, 2018
I thought Scheels in Moorhead was a great experience. They teach each employee the right way to treat customers. Also the management staff were not only fun but were helpful in teaching confidence, product knowledge, individual and professional growth. It was always very rewarding when you were able to help a customer find exactly what they were looking for through the teachings of the managers.
Pros
Great Staff, Great retirement, fun work environment
Cons
short breaks, not the most compensation

Fun place to work!
Receiving Manager (Former Employee) –  Grand Forks, ND 58201May 15, 2018
Worked at Scheel's when they first opened and it was very enjoyable. The company is fast paced and exciting.
I learned to become very organized and efficient in my shipping and receiving areas.
The culture of Scheel's is and was very employee oriented.
The hardest part of the position was working out the new kinks of a new store. Scheel's has now relocated to a new building.
Enjoyable atmosphere!
