    Not a hard job, but Management is not inspiring. Very High Turnover.

    I have been working at Academy Sports & Outdoors part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you need a part time job, it's generally pretty easy to get hired. The work isn't hard if you're not a moron. Pay is decent if you negotiate when you're hired. Harder jobs do generally get paid more, though only if you know ahead of time they're harder and ask for the extra pay. Employee Discount is awesome if you like any of the things the store sell, especially on Guns and ammo.

    Cons

    Management structure is pants on head retarded, and doesn't really feel effective. Hours are generally long and if you close, you can expect to be at work till midnight every night. Customers suck. Turnover is atrocious, especially in Footwear, as that department is a nightmare and is poorly run in most cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a better effort to train your employees. Make a better effort to retain good employees. Offer better wages to middle management and long term employees so you aren't constantly having to hire newbies.
