Pros

Excellent leadership and the company is growing rapidly and heading in the right direction.

Cons

Titles and salary are below that of similar positions at other companies.

Advice to Management

I would recommend reviewing job titles and salaries to match up with competing companies for similar job responsibilities.

    Academy is a great company overall, but compensation is poor.

    Pros

    casual atmosphere, team environment, receive regular feedback/updates from the President; receive employee discount on merchandise

    Cons

    below average salaries (even for college graduates), poor compensation in general; corporate employees are treated the same as hourly store associates (have to use personal vacation days for holidays such as the day after Thanksgiving and Christmas, Good Friday, Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Compensate your employees at least up to the average market standards, and reward them when they deserve it.

    Pros

    Get to help people. I was in camping and always doing something. Got to work the amount of hours i wanted. I did more physical work which is what i liked (like moving grills, other big objects, etc.) If you are not wanting that then other departments would be better suited like apparrel, or footwear, or hunting and fishing (who by the way I can not think of once helped me).

    Cons

    Some of the people are pretty weird, I felt I knew about just as much as the managers after working there for like a month, and closing sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe to check in on the managers.
