    I worked at Golf Town part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great team, Managers are vocal and make themselves seen on the sales floor, great discounts and company relationships, educational training programs.

    Cons

    Sometimes restocking shelves and putting on grips can be tedious. Required to work on major holidays (boxing day, new years). Some pressure to push fitting onto people. Pressure to convert sales.

    Advice to Management

    Let each employee sell their own way. Only recommend fitting if its necessary. Give sales associates updates on all sales every day, keep up morning meetings, maybe even implement shift change metings to brief promos.

    Pros

    Great people to work with and very knowledgeable, discount on products, good working environment and atmosphere with in he store.

    Cons

    Limited storage and too much stock held, general and other managers should order their own stock for the store so that too much stock is not being held and the expenditure wouldn't be more than the income on or in certain circumstances.

    Advice to Management

    General managers to place orders for own stores.
