Be punctual and regular in attendance, follow rules, and you'll do well. Metrics are strict but goals are achievable. Supervisors generally want to help you succeed. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

Hard place to work

High turn over rate super strict with bathroom breaks even though you’re on phones you can’t go more than your breaks even if your throat hurts. The management mostly aren’t kind it’s bad because they don’t have your back. They value their customers more than their workers.

Sportsman's Guide

A typical work day at Sportsman's Guide, to arrive at least 15 minutes early, to speak with supervisor and prepare for the rest of my evening. I learned to direct the conversation in keeping with my time restraints. I got along with management always willing to go above and beyond what my job duties were. Enjoyed working with all my co-workers. Maintaining my time on my calls. Enjoyed everything

Terrible

It's not a bad option if you just need a temporary job. However they will lie to employees about the possibility of being brought on permanently and full time and then a week later they will cut you. They cut a ton of people the week before Christmas this past year as well. Only take this job if you need a quick buck. It's not a job you can survive on longer then a couple months at best.

Pros

Weekly paychecks

Cons

Too many to list

My hours were changed to Sunday-Thursday and I am looking for a Monday-Friday employment

I take my job seriously. I perform to the best of my ability. I listen to the customers and resolve the issue in a timely manner. I use the resources available to achieve this goal.

Fast-paced environment with a good workforce. The various department teams strive to implement the various ideas of the company leaders in a timely manner.

Company went from a great company to poor.

Was part of a transformation of an unprofitable company to one that increased profits and sales every year. Fun place to work with an opportunity to be part of change and improvement. New CEO came in and changed everything with no input from present management. Profit fell first then sales lagged in high margin department. Took away fun and involvement and then blamed management for failure.

Pros

Causual dress and discount

Cons

Poor executive team.

Good for establishing sales/customer service esperience

If you enjoy speaking with people and are pursuing a career in sales or customer service, this is a good place to start. They offer decent pay + commission.

I learned a lot about the hunting season and the high demands of the ammunition and different cross bows as well as that they sold everything from clothes to pet supplies a very high call volume

Has turned into a corperate zombie company

Sportsman's Guide used to be a great place to work because of the job security, fast paced work and great down-to-earth people. I was a loyal worker who loved my job there. But since last year SG was bought by Northern Tool. Northern Tool is a predatory company that has liquidated and outsourced all the departments, destroying the once great company. As far as I'm concerned it is no longer the company I worked at and loved. After gutting ours and many other departments, Northern Tool began singling out workers who had been there 10-20 or more years and getting rid of them by any means possible. Laying them off, forcing some into early retirement, accusing them of things that they never did and using coworkers unfounded accusations to bring grievances against them. This happened to nine of my close coworkers, including myself. A despicable corporate tactic. The people that were rehired where inexperienced, young and not friendly. The work atmosphere went from warm, friendly, family-like, to cold, uncaring and Big Brother-ish with coworkers reporting anything said to HR as an infraction to get ahead. Because of the drastic change many coworkers left on there own, citing it was a miserable place to work and I agreed. I was isolated and unappreciated for my experience and years of hard work. It had become a toxic work environment. For years I enjoyed the heavy work load and willingly did overtime as needed. I was always busy. After most of my department was let go, the steady work that I had enjoyed for years petered off and management didn't care. I had not only totally - 

Pros

Had some great, highly skilled people who are all gone now

Cons

Bought by predator company Northern Tool that destroyed a money making company

Exciting workplace

The company is a good company to work for with fair pay and decent benefits. The company provides a yearly outing for the employees as well as 2 BBQ's yearly. The people I worked with were knowledgeable and very helpful when I needed their support. The management team were always helpful and very supportive. There was nothing hard about the job but very busy during our rush time. Every aspect of the job was enjoyable.

Pros

Family outings, BBQ's, Pot lucks, Easy time off in summer (slow time)

Cons

New hires yearly with little or no knowledge of products or procedures

Ever-changing Policies

Not a secure place to work. Work environment is very stressful. Policies change close to monthly, and are changed at company's leisure, and without notice to employees. Management is difficult to deal with regarding employee issues / problems.
