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

    Pros

    Benefits are good, trying to take care of the lower level employees.

    Cons

    Company has little clue that the problems are within upper leadership and not the stores' management. Surveys constructed to criticize stores' leadership rather than the company that dictates how the stores should operate. Kids are filling out surveys and in reality, they will move on to other employers in a very short time. Still hard to succeed without connections. RVPs are a tight group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a survey for store directors and mangers to rate D.M.s and RVPs. Of course you know the answer to this and it will never happen. Ask the employees what they think about the company and what they would like from the company.
