    I have been working at Sports Direct as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    During my time at Sports Direct I have found that the best things about the job are the Zero-hour contract, which for me as a student allows me to work as and when I'm available (after school, school holidays etc) and also to take time off whenever I need it such as for exams and holidays with my family. Another great aspect of Sports Direct are the people. Even when the hours behind a till are starting to drag on a little there's always a friendly face next to you to make you smile.

    Cons

    Every now and then the customers can be rude, however I'm sure this is an occupational hazard for anyone in retail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay from minimum wage. It isn't easy working six hours non stop 5 days a week and the pay should reflect this. The employee discount is pretty much non-existant, even with a valid pay slip and being on the only day of the week when the company gives a minimal employee discount I have been refused by stores as I don't work for that particular branch. Ideally the discount would be extended to 7 days a week and some form of proof other than personal information about my earnings should be given out to allow access to discounts.
