    I worked at Challenger Sports full-time

    Pros

    Good work environment. Great people and good work life balance. Company does care about employees

    Cons

    Pay isnt great but very flexible schedule. Time off at christmas is a plus. Not too much room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Structure for advancement needs to be looked at

    I worked at Challenger Sports full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The kids you get to coach, usually most kids in the States are nice and friendly.

    Cons

    The people you deal with who work for the company, you are treated like dirt by the directors and the people on your camp. It's a demoralising experience. The job itself is mainly babysitting rather then actually getting any real soccer coaching in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider how you treat your staff, it's a disgrace. No help from anyone. Alot of the coaches who work for the company are horrible people too. I would advise anyone strongly to stay away from this company
