just a job - not a good job

Sales Associate (Current Employee) Baton Rouge, LA

Pros20 percent employee discount on most purchases - the work mostly very easy also things change with each season of weather and sports. has fully vested 401k

Consvery poor pay for most store employees and annual reviews are downright insulting ! managers are instructed to not use the top rating tiers so the best anyone can get in any category is meets expectations. then raises are given that are so small [ under 2 percent - 10 to 15 cents per hour ] that they are lafable. very poor hours even for retail and those are often cut for weeks at a time while additional employees are added to the schedule

Advice to Senior Management.Look for a place to bail out - KK&R will suck up all the revenue that should have been going to the employees and then dump the company on another holding company to repeat the process until nothing is left and academy is either split up or shut down

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
