Low pay for potentially dangerous work and unappreciative management
Not only is the pay low, but management expect employees to live and breathe the company. Whether it's dropping what you're doing when they call you to come in or needing to take a day off for appointments, its an issue. At the location I was at theft was a constant problem with thieves pulling a knife on me personally and another more notable incident of a taser being pulled on a manager. After these incidents the immediate response to employees was to disengage with people stealing but a day or two later you are encouraged to put your self in harms way for a t-shirt or jacket. I made many good friends there which is nice but in four and a half years the atmosphere was not one that I would ever want to work in again

A typical work day in the summer invovled creating bikes for customers from scratch, repairing bicycles by diagnosing them and then solving the problem. Reparing or building tennis rackets and badminton rackets, and sharpening skates. In the winter time a typical day involved maintenanceing skiis, snowboards, and skates. It was enjoyable at first but management made it difficult to enjoy the shifts as they tried to cut on costs by not hiring enough workers.
Great place to work. The staff and managers were always exceptionally friendly and easy to get along with. The customer interactions were also very fun, as people were sometimes making big purchases, it was fun to help them decide.
