I have been working at Sports Direct part-time (Less than a year)
Meet new people, can choose your own hours, 20% discounts!. The other staff here are very friendly and understanding, helpful if I don't know something. Managers bought us cakes after a particularly busy day!
Back to school and Christmas times are very busy and stressful and busy! Been doing the same job/task(s) for >1 year, getting bored now, only thing making it noticeably interesting is the variations of customers. We use radios to talk and often there aren't enough and people get into a queue to call the shoes which causes irritation with some customers.
Advice to Management
Make sure all packaging is in decent condition as its often unusable and falls apart. I've had many complaints about this. Some sort of new system for calling the shoes is required, the radios are somewhat inefficient.

I applied through other source. I interviewed at Sports Direct.
I was interested in a store manager position but after speaking to the recruitment team at the Milton Keynes job fair, it's not a company that I am at all interested in now. The people on the stand looked really unhappy, you can just tell it's a miserable place to work. They had some staff from the stores there too I think, they just didn't want to be there. Really poor, so if you were thinking about sports direct as an option, forget it. 70 hour weeks, for no praise or reward, no wonder the guys looked hacked off!
