    For a store that promotes health and wellness they sure don't care about the well-being of their employees.

    I worked at Academy Sports & Outdoors part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. You can trade labor for money.

    Cons

    Breaks are too few and far between. It's not uncommon to have to work 6 hours without a break to eat or drink anything. Not healthy! You are not even allowed water at your register to stay properly hydrated. Their excuse is that you can excuse yourself to the restroom when they aren't busy, yet if you walk away from your register they get upset with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need treat your employees the same way you want them to treat your customer and live up to the image that your company is projecting through their products. It's not healthy to have your employees working so many hours without proper nutrition and hydration. There is absolutely no reason a person not to at least be able to have a water bottle with them.

    I worked at Academy Sports & Outdoors full-time

    Pros

    pay check and discount for merchandise, close to home so I didn't have to spend much for gas to get to work, customers were usually very nice

    Cons

    In gulfport store it's low paying and raises over 25cents are only given to certain groups like ap and team leads, very discouraging environment,only "twentysomethings" are made team leads ,only two are over 30 years old!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop showing such partiality to your favorite people with promotions and "second chances" on point system,also have aguide line on starting pay, some managers will start people off at different amounts while none of new hires had retail experience
