Good Job
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Farmington, NMAugust 17, 2018
I really enjoy my job at Sportsmans. I do wish that we got paid more, but if you consider how awesome the employee discount is on products then it isn't such a bad deal

Janitor (Former Employee) –  Show Low, AZAugust 9, 2018
I liked working at Sportsmen's Warehouse. Other associates were friendly, humorous, fun to work with, and reliable. As the janitor I was able to structure my job to prioritize my duties, order supplies, help other departments as needed, and work independently.

I left the position to come back to Wisconsin.
Pros
Every few months there were free meals or occasions to celebrate, All employees were encouraged to take part
Cons
Break times were short, Lunch time was too short, We did not have a separate bathroom from customers

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Anchorage, AKAugust 8, 2018
Great environment and leaders within this company. There is advancement opportunities. The people are friendly and willing to help out other co workers. The only downfall is the pay. I would recommend this job to others.

Not worth it!
Front End (Former Employee) –  Rocklin, CAAugust 4, 2018
Even if you work hard and get full time, you'll only make minimum wage. Very little work-life balance. Communication is terrible, several pages/calls to get depts to attend to customers (with many customer walkouts as a result), managers rarely come down from the office to help out if it gets busy. Severely understaffed at the front end, long stretches of time with nothing to do and no projects given.
Lots of gossip and drama, badmouthing of current and former workers by employees and management and it makes the place feel like a high school vs. a legitimate business.
Rude interactions between workers and customers that results in customers complaints.
If you have any sort of issue with customer harassment, and if management, in dealing with said customer, would result in SW losing them, expect to be refused any help beyond a bare minimum...if you get any help at all.
Pros
Fun coworkers, fun customers (usually), decent benefits, you get full time if you work well.
Cons
Everything else.

I learned a lot of new stuff. Freight keeps the workers busy. It is a fun place to work but it is easy to get distracted. Good first job for somebody.

Can be a pleasant and fun working environment.
Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Rohnert Park, CAJuly 10, 2018
The company has evolved over the past few years to be a investor driven company rather than a family-owned. That has changed the culture and made it more competitive and challenging to work at. It can be a fun and relaxed environment to work in at times however because of the culture change can be stressful also. As with most retail operations Staffing levels are being diminished which I believe is having an overall effect on customer satisfaction. The drive to be competitive in online sales is overshadowing the Box Store operation and in my personal opinion having a negative effect on that customer service and employee retention and satisfaction.
Pros
Employee discount
Cons
Limited full-time positions

Firearm Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Bozeman, MTJuly 10, 2018
I have seen several fairly huge mistakes overlooked by management in firearm sales while working there, including a rifle being sold to a mexican national. (Nothing against mexicans, it was just against federal law for that transaction to take place. The firearm was retrieved without issue)
Pros
Great discount on most products
Cons
Discounts sucks for guns and ammo

Order Filler Lead (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTJuly 7, 2018
It’s really not that bad of a company but there are things that definitely need to be changed for that company to prosper. The morale for workers goes up and down like a roller coaster.
Pros
Discount
Cons
Short breaks and lunch

Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Riverdale, UTJuly 2, 2018
This is a fun place to work although i don't see it being a career unless you were to work your way up in management. This job is mostly about helping customers and stocking merchandise and the pay could be better you don't see them giving employees much over minimum wage.

Clothing/Footwear Associate (Former Employee) –  Las Cruces, NMJune 29, 2018
Everyone was friendly and helpful. The managers would be out and about helping customers and departments get things done. As part time, there weren't many hours so paychecks would be a little small since it was only minimum wage. But I enjoyed working there and would've continued if I could. There was a mix of busy and slow days, but usually there was always something to do in your own department or you could help in another department. Management was nice and understanding about things, but still encouraged you to do your best and meet the store goals set for the day. Every morning would be a store meeting for the opening crew to keep everyone up to date on what was going on and how the store was doing. Great company to work for with good benefits and discounts.
Pros
Friendly, close team
Cons
Not a lot of hours for part time

Clothing Associate (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COJune 8, 2018
A typical day at work included working the shoe and clothing departments. Assisting customers trying on shoes or locating a piece of clothing. I wasn't able to learn as much as I had hoped, management mostly did the heavy work for fear of it not being done correctly.
Pros
Breaks, good hours
Cons
Not a lot of responsibilities as hoped

Customer Service Associate (Current Employee) –  Rancho Cordova, CAJune 1, 2018
Great for part time, though if you are full time it can become challenging to work there since most full time employees are not given a specific title but are expected to take charge of their department.
Pros
Good break room, easy going, and managers work with you.
Cons
Full time are the only ones that get benefits
