    Pros

    There honestly were not many pros to this job at all. The best thing was the employee discount and coupons we got

    Cons

    Management structure was horrible. No communication throughout employees. Definitely just a starter job or a job for high school kids

    Advice to Management

    Respect employees


  2. The job is like any other retail experience, not horrible, but certainly not great.

    Pros

    If you like sports, and wish to share that knowledge with others, than it can be a great atmosphere for you. Also, if you truly enjoy working with customers, than you may also enjoy many of the encounters. The employee discount is more than several other retail companies, at 25% of regular price. The wide array of sporting related services they offer can be a great boon to customer interaction.

    Cons

    Depending on the size of your store, certain policies and practices may be very ineffective and impractical. Like all businesses, strives for bare minimum payroll, to the point of under-staffing, which causes problems not only with workflow, but also with customer satisfaction. Does not offer more than minimum wage pay for most positions, unless necessary. Pushes its sales metrics to the point of being constantly unsatisfied.

    Advice to Management

    Although I understand the high cost of payroll, be aware of how under-staffing affects not only your employees, but also your customers. Too few associates to help the number of customers in your store leads to a completely avoidable, and high, number of dissatisfied customers who intent to spread negative reviews of your company. Also, consider increasing the size of back-stock for your stores. While having a lot of inventory can be expensive both financially and in terms of store size, the lack of available items also hurts customer satisfaction.
