I have been working at Academy Sports & Outdoors part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good hours and competent managers. For a sports fan, this is a great place to spend your time over the summer. Learned a lot about sporting equipment through the product training guides. Enjoyed the other staff members and my managers were engaging and supportive.

Cons

Minimum wage, high employee turnover. At times asked to sell/discuss products far above my knowledge level. Sometimes very slow during the day and hard to stay engaged with nothing to do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider more employee perks to improve employee turnover.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, opportunity to have many hours. Generally enjoyable people to work with. Great pay for the simplicity of the job.

    Cons

    Management often has unrealistic expectations of job performance or customer complaints. They often have high, yet unrealistic, expectations for their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider promoting individuals who work hard rather than those who spend the most time lobbying for a promotion. I saw an individual who spent the entire time in the manager's office receive a promotion while the individual who was carrying the load remained part-time.
