Approves of CEO

I have been working at Academy Sports & Outdoors full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Company objectives are supported from the top down. Priorities are generally well defined. Lots of work, translating to job security if you perform. Recognition is abundant when you work with the right team

Cons

High turnover in IT Director level power struggles Directors actions don't always follow their words Pay is average for retail but this is an energy corridor and tough to compete with. Company is still operating in a small shop mentality with large growing pains.

Advice to Management

Keep the faith, remember that without good people the future gets bleak.

    Pros

    I don't have much to say, they work around your schedule?

    Cons

    Management sees you as a number not an employee, point system for missing work even if you have a valid reason or doctors note, very unorganized from the top down. They change your schedule without telling you so you have to keep checking back.I wouldn't go unless you are desperate for a job.

    Advice to Management

    Get your crap together.
