It was a lot of work for very little reward.

I have been working at Fanatics part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The staff is cohesive and friendly. Even the customers, primarily Auburn fans, are great to work with. The people all around make this job worth it, without the customer base and the staff that it has, the store would have few redeeming qualities from an employee's perspective. If you are a sports fan or especially an Auburn fan, this position does give you unique opportunities to interact with Auburn players and coaches as well as famous Auburn facilities like Jordan-Hare stadium.

Cons

The work can be gruling with long hours and often real physical labor. These periods of intense, tiring work are punctuated by long stretches of brain-numbing boredom.

Advice to Management

The nature of this business really precludes fixing the negative aspects of this job.

    I worked at Fanatics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working in the sports and sports memorabilia industry. Working with great people in middle management, working with athletes, and most of all, working with a great and very loyal customer base that Fanatics Inc. has.

    Cons

    Company has no clue what they are doing when it comes to customer service, sales, and trade shows and it shows with the work people do here as well. People do not even understand what they are supposed to even be doing in their positions. Upper management is rude, career derailing, and unappreciative of the hard work you will put into your job at any time. A work/life balance you want, this place is absolutely not build for it. They will put you on a very low salary then have you work 60 or 70 hour work weeks with no weekends or a day after you travel off. You really end up making like nine bucks an hour and it is really unprofessional how they set their pay structure up at this company. It is a very delicate situation with this company as they have taken over a few business's that I feel the company is very unsure of what they truly want to do with them.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your middle management. Do not continue the mentality of, well if it is not broke don't fix it. Change, adapt, listen, not just to middle management, but more importantly the very loyal customer base this company is very fortunate to have. The sports industry is rapidly and almost always changing. Some great ideas and inputs are out there and there are some very glaring issues as well in regards to sales, customer service, and internally with the thousands of employees that work here. Give everybody that works at this company, even the temps that work in the warehouses a sense of purpose, a sense of pride about their jobs, and the satisfaction to them knowing that they are doing a great job and making an impact in a positive manner to Fanatics, Inc.

    I have been working at Fanatics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a fast paced environment with continual change. There is always an opportunity to leave your mark on the business because it is still growing.

    Cons

    At times, the lack of existing processes can lead to chaos and inconsistency. Communication throughout the organization is also not as good as it should be. However, everything here is improving from day to day.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more communication with employees regarding the success of the company and how our efforts contribute to those successes.
