Hard work pays off, always be one step ahead of your duties. Daily planning is crucial to ensure you don't get side tracked by other duties. Always check and recheck on your staff. I loved learning new things all of the time, I'm just sorry that I never had the time to learn more about the management side of running the business.
Pros
Being busy all of the time
Cons
Salary is a problem

This is retail, it was extremely taxing on mind and body. It requires a lot of energy. The head managers were not so nice and made working there undesirable. However it was good experience for engagement with management and other staff and customers.

a typical day at work on weekdays, one is always busy and always has something to do in terms of merchandising, etc and on weekends are very focused mostly on customers service as it is very busy especially in festive. I have a lot mostly about different product in different departments and how they work or used for. The hardest part of the job is not making the customers and management happy or when you make a mistake by giving the customer wrong information.
Pros
Free lunch at training and the experiential learning
Cons
long hours and hard labour

Like all companies, SWH has it's pros and cons. What stands out about them is that they give all the necessary tools for skills training, growth and development from flexible staff, through to management. And this allows for growth in the company. Throughout the year there are continuous product knowledge training, workshops, leadership and management training, skills training for specific departments and general in depth training in each and every aspect of the store. From cash desk, receiving, customer carex through all departments, running, cycling, swimming, exercise, outdoor, transports, apparel. It's a company that supports it's staff in it's development. The hours may be long, but it's not any worse than other retail companies.
Pros
Discounts, skills training, experience
Cons
Long hours

the workplace culture among the temps was cool but the management messed with the work place environment which led to me leaving and also there was no real place for growth. Lastly the seniors make you do all the work and there's not a thing you can do about it.
Pros
Not much other than the vibe created by others
Cons
lack of interest on the part of management

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.
Pros
training
Cons
long hours standing

Sportmans Warehouse is filled with Quality of workers who is committed to their jobs and the goals. My job description as a cashier was always being on time and develop skills in knowing certain equipment. I have learned to obey instructions and my work has to be done professional as well as independently and working as a team. The management works well together with the rest of the staff to develop strong employees and they follow up on additional responsibilities.The workplace environment is structured always time and again for some fun ,if there were conflict it would be resolved immediately. The hardest part of working in retail was dealing with difficult customers who sometimes could not understand the process and procedures. The enjoyable part of the job is when your work colleagues turns into family where u excited to go and work and enjoy the working environment having happy people around you having to laugh is joyable.
Pros
Double pay on public holidays, and getting weekly paid
Cons
long hours and having to cash up last
