I worked at Modell's Sporting Goods

Pros

Offers interesting variety of sporting equipment that can be interesting at times, and employees seemed to build good relationships with each other.

Cons

Management treated employees poorly and often broke rules. Controls over store were poorly implemented, and in most cases ineffective at best.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider management choices wisely when making hiring decisions and implement better controls and security over stores and inventory kept in stock.

    Pros

    20% discount... though kinda pointless when the markup is about 300%
    Flexible hours
    you get to see the new shoes and clothes before the customers.

    Cons

    omg too many to list.
    Loss prevention treats employees like thieves from the beginning of employment and aren't even subtle about it.
    The company expects you to be so focused on customer service but offers no commission on sales.
    They tell you to focus ONLY on customers so they can make money, then get angry and wanna send memos and emails when jobs (stock, freight, organizing, cleaning the floor) isn't done in a timely fashion.
    Management is lazy, and on the store level there is NO ONE to watch management so they basically do whatever they want. (personal calls, laying down behind registers, watching tv in the office)
    Associates expected to play the role of cashier, sales associate, security, customer service, stock and EVERYTHING else while only receiving an associates pay which is only aroun 7 bucks an hour.
    Management stays making personal phone calls during store hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More store visits by field supervisors and higher ups to ensure management isn't taking advantage of associates. They receive more pay for a reason, make them do more work.
    Associates should NOT be doing transfers, setting ads, or doing floor moves by themselves. You are setting yourselves up for a lawsuit.
