They are just like any other retailer but they are good at working around your schedule.

Cashier Team Lead (Current Employee) Lubbock, TX

ProsIt is a very easy job that requires little thought. It would be hard to get fired from this store. The only real way to get fired is to steal or to accumulate to many attendance points resulting in termination. I like the people i work with. That makes the days go by faster and makes it far more enjoyable.

ConsIt's retail.... sometimes other co-workers like to slack off forcing you to carry their weight. Some times they poor a lot of work on-top of you and they want you to stop and help every customer. You will work late some nights when you close.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to make it more enjoyable. They hardly care about their employes desire to come to work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It's retail

    Team Sports Sales Associate (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Academy Sports & Outdoors part-time for more than a year


    Pros: Employee discount is better than most places, co workers are awesome. Fast pace, always something… Cons: Academy uses a top stock system in stead of a stock room so there is a lot of climbing ladders. If you can't stand climbing… Advice to Senior Management: Instead of stressing about weekly/monthly visits and cramming more projects all at once the day or so before a visit to get your store looking… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
