    Not bad

    I worked at Academy Sports & Outdoors

    Pros

    Co workers: Even though I don't work at academy anymore I still keep in touch with the people from my department. The sales associated are what sets academy apart.

    Cons

    Management can be poor at times. For example, the store manager made us redo a whole aisle during the busiest part of a Saturday. Managers also had problems working with each other.

    Pros

    This job provides you with the ability to work for a growing company in an environment that alines with your hobbies and lifestyle and gives a great employee discount too! My store does cookouts on some weekends and other events that constantly increase morale.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement, as is the case for most retail stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management continues to do a good job and is fair to employees despite increasing corporate pressure.
