Pros

I like the hours i work. 4am to 1pm. Employee discounts. medical and dental plans are good.

Cons

the employee discount is going from 25% off to 15%. though that is still decent. it feels like members only if you're not in the click of management and junior management. there's a lot of gossip and trouble making in parts of management.

Advice to Management

work opposite the team leader. work with the employees not only the team leader.

    Pros

    Academy offers health, dental, and eye benefits to all full-time employees, along with new "associate perks" that allow the employee to get further benefits from other services (AT&T discounts, LaQuinta, etc...)

    Cons

    The pay is very low, with mid-level managers having a base pay rate of $10/hr. Due to the laid back environment, store managers seem to "let things slide" and the work load becomes completely unbalanced for those harder working employees.

    Advice to Management

    The high turnover rate could be caused by both the low hourly rates, and the unbalanced workload that is placed on employees. For myself, I have been given jobs from multiple departments (not originally stated in the job description) which I have gone with in stride, however have not received any form of appreciation whether that be a raise or even appreciation from the higher ups.


  2. Good Company!
