    If you are young and incompetent with zero leadership ability you will likely get promoted!

    I worked at Academy Sports & Outdoors full-time (More than a year)


    You get to sell a lot of really cool products! Customer interactions are pretty fun for retail. Very easy job for retail. They work with you on a flex schedule. Most management is easy going and lets the workers work without micro-management. 20% employee discount and 6% 401K match.


    They love to hire 19 year old kids at a low wage and quickly promote them to Team Lead +$1 and then Senior Team Lead (+1.50). The problem is you have incompetent leaders making ~$10 per hour in order for the store to keep payroll costs down. College degree doesn't mean anything. They arbitrarily cut wage employee hours after bragging about the millions a particular store makes. Raises are low 10 cents - 25 cents. The most knowledgeable people in the store are the plain ol' associates who have been there longer than the Team Leads. Employee turnover is high. A lot of small cliques within each store. It is a lot like a high school atmosphere. An inept store director or department manager can do a lot of damage to working processes. Management allows hostile work environments to thrive long-term right under their noses. There is a lot of gossip within a couple days you know which manager is sleeping with which employee.

    Advice to Management

    Make your Team Leads and Managers train the new hires, they are getting paid for the leadership roles. Recognize those who are doing the majority of the work with promotions and good raises before they leave for a competitor. Oh and don't hire anymore "managers" from Wal-mart and Target as they ruin any team dynamic that exists within Academy. Academy is a fun place to work at because it is not Target or Wal-mart.
