Overall Reviews at Sportsman's Warehouse
Survey Assisted Greatly
Surveys are a vital aspect of many businesses, and helping carry out the surveys for The Home Market was great.
The only drawback would be that were slightly understaffed, and carrying out the surveys within the given time frame did become an issue if all employees weren't pulling their socks.
ConsAmount of houses needed to cover
Early mnorning we use to have a quizz relating to sports in general other days we excersize, the hard part was when we receive lots of stock in a day and the requirement was that all the styock must be captured,marked and sent to the floor we use to leave late on those days but that has taught me to work even more harder and sometimes taking only 10 minutes lunch. on wednesday we use to play action cricket after work as part of relaxation
Sales floor post & assisted with till cash up
Daily interaction with customers & staff
Daily opening of accounts, Book keeping, Pa announcements , Report - Quality returns decisions (replacements or refunds)
Report - Staff roster & payment summary
Management, most enjoyable, fun loving & cheerful bunch of people
Environment & culture- always busy but warm & welcoming
Hardest - Staff rivalry (don't like conflict)
Most enjoyed - People & friendly atmosphere
ConsLong hours of work
Product knowledge through features and benefit
Working in an environment where there is so much selling skills taught through training and certification was very professional to me. I liked that because I also wanted to learn other sports too.
most enjoyable workplace, fun and educational etc.
I believe to be the person of professional virtue in all respect due to my educational setbacks. All need is to be in a vibrant environment, workplace
ProsProduct knowledge sales or morning meetings

Growth and fun
Sportsman Warehouse is a place of growth and skills acquiring.
They have fun EMT's during the weekdays which is great for teambuilding . Management is great but the work culture can get sloppy as the job requires a lot of patience and great customer service which tends to make people grumpy if you have alot of it.
I have learnt a great deal from SDportsman Warehouse and their training is exceptional.
Conslong hours standing

Fun place to work
It is easy to balance your personal life and work.
The managers are good and easy people to speak to.
Learned how to work with people who are older than me.
Productive and fun
Helping a variety of customers on a day to day basis and retaining customer loyalty. I've learnt that the customer is always right and do everything in my power to make sure the customer is satisfied.
productive and fun workplace
I used to meet different customers some were friendly and some were not but i have learned how approach them accordingly and always be friendly.
My co-workers were friendly and also the management staff.
my hardest part was when dealing with an angry customer but i always managed to make them happy at the end.
my enjoyable part of the job was seeing a happy and certisfied customer with my services.
ProsFree t shirts every season especially in world cups
Treated unfairly, Managers slept with your girlfriend, Then fired you unfairly, Really an awful place to be , No advancement at all, Extremely rude people in power there, Fired for doing nothing wrong at all.
overall good place to work as a part time job
good place to work as a part time job but do not expect a raise for at least a year and no paid vacation until you have been a Full time employee for a consecutive year. Awesome coworkers and customers including regular customers that you will see on a weekly basis.
Awesome Place to Work
This was a amazing Company to work for. Too bad they had to leave the state/ close stores due to a re allocation and chapter 11. Now they are growing and hopefully will return to the Outdoor market her in the Midwest.
Everything about Sportsman's is wonderful
Everything about Sportsman's Warehouse is wonderful. It was a great place to learn selling skills and a great place to make memories and enjoy what you did everyday.

Sales, Stocking, Remerchandising
How to be confident and open with people.
Co-workers are fun and trying to make a living.
Selling product that I know is not good.
Selling the right product to fit a persons needs.
ProsFree products from vendors who recognize our worth.
a typical day
Typical work day was nothing spectacular. I learned to sell small arms to civilians. Management wasn't much nor was the work place culture. There was no hard part to the job. Most enjoyable was the gun discounts.
Fun group of people to work with.
I did Data entry part time, for three summers. They worked with my hours so that I could still go my high school sport that I played competitively at the time.
Not an equal opportunity workplace
They say they value your work but if you're female they don't. The majority of the males make 50% more than the females make or more. If you bring it up to them they'll find a way to let you go. They don't respect females, females cannot advance into upper management positions and females are not valued. Your only chance of advancement is if you're in accounting or HR. It's a mans world there so don't waste your time.
Productive and fun workplace!
Working at Sportsmans warehouse was very fun for me. I learned a lot about the area in which I worked, met and made friends with all of my coworkers and would recommend this job to anybody starting out.
Great Place to work
Very goo fun and learning enviornment. Both for employees and customers. Very customer friendly, with knowledgable employees and supervisors.
