    I have been working at Sports Direct full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    the rewards of working your way up in a company , hard work yes, long hours of course, but as with everything worthwhile in life what you put into it you get out of it, if you want an easy life do not work for sports direct, you want to work and earn beyond all expectations then this is the company for you

    Cons

    only negative here is people that don't want to work for a living and think that the company owes them

    I worked at Sports Direct full-time

    Pros

    A highly successful and forward-thinking company, which encourages to use a full potential of its employees. Employees of the company can actually experience, how the vision and strategy of the company flow from the top to the bottom, and sideways, which makes the company a great workplace and a great working environment. There are always career progression opportunities and potential employees can expect to work with a very nice people.

    Cons

    There is nothing to add here.
