I worked at Wholesale Sports and Outdoor Outfitters part-time (More than 3 years)
Most of my co-workers were great, the hours were reasonable, there were lots of good discounts. Pay was decent depending on the store location.
Terrible corporate management. Instead of properly training and guiding store managers in the right direction, corporate would just give new store managers a 'shot', and then fire them when they didn't exceed expectations. Corporate is undoubtedly the reason they are out of business now.

Can't fix stupid
I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wholesale Sports and Outdoor Outfitters (Edmonton, AB) in December-2009.
it was very informal, gave the assistant manager a resume and he asked when I could start
