Work & Life Balance

Reviews

Assistant Store Manager in New York, NY
on April 28, 2021
You will be required to take on a multirole position & deliver but will not be paid accordingly.
In short : You will have to become a jack of all trades to take care of specific and often technical needs of the boating community, On average there are never enough trained employees to properly facilitate this as there will be plenty of DIY scenarios which require the hands on hardware experience to provide proper guidance for possible solutions. Following up from the previous paragraph that also applies to chemicals, marine craft, and navigation components/computers. There is no possibility to earn a living wage unless you are management and there are no salaried positions available even to full-time employees no matter your tenure, experience, or skill set. In regards to the subject of raises and bonuses there are next to none for full-time employees if the store's (Subjective) performance is not up to snub that eliminates any real consideration with the exception of management and their superiors (guaranteed bonuses regardless)

West Marine is a good company to work for, they work with you and try to help you if you have problems. They train you and promote people from inside first. They are really busy during their peak and hire a lot of people but they have a lot of incentives they give out. They pay a Stimulus for Perfect Attendance and they do a lot of drawings to give out gifts. Cool place to work!

I loved working for West Marine. After leaving and wiring for other retail companies, I can honestly say that West Marine treats their employees very well & is a great place to work.

You are able to learn a lot about greeting people and talking to people but the managers were horrible. It was a pain to take off unless you found someone to cover for you and the pay is bad.

Good for high school or starting in the industry. Poor company communication. Most work goes unnoticed and you feel a lack of appreciation. Pay is very poor
