Pros

Competitive salary (if you negotiate), rapidly expanding with over 500 existing stores making relocation possible, great work environment with good people, sports related products and programs.

Cons

Payroll is always tight, many new projects and initiatives to manage and implement, highly competitive sales environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Customer service will always be a key to your success. Make sure to allocate enough payroll dollars to stores in order to provide your desired level of service.

    Pros

    There are so many other places to work so don't work here. Why? Low pay, low number of hours, very low moral among associates. No training.

    Cons

    See above. The company culture is the worst. Poor leadership from management. They don't care if you know anything about any sports because half of your shifts your working in the apparel section.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop building new stores and focus on the 500 you have already. This company is too big for its own good.

    Pros

    Great, passionate people to work with. Learn a lot of good customer skills.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. HR doesn't return phone calls until days and days later. Company claims to have an open door policy but is only really worried about numbers and making the almighty dollar. Minimal pay unless you are certified in something. Hours fluctuate way too much unless you are full time or a favorite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your heads out of your behinds and focus on the customer! They're the number one priority. They're the ones that pay you your billions of dollars per year! And take care of your associates! Pay them decent! You'll get better quality of people working for you.
