I worked at Sport Chalet part-time for more than a year

Pros

Fun if you love being surrounded by sports stuff-great discount!

Cons

Management was horrible. Once my store manager got fired and people starting shifting positions it was horrible. No real HR people-everything goes through your assistant manager-hence you can guess things go wrong

    I worked at Sport Chalet part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pro-deals
    Discounts (cheap scuba classes, free rentals year round, employee discount)

    Cons

    Management is horrible. They're incredibly sexist and favor men over women. Always up and down, different moods every day, no stability. Would stay past midnight many times for closing. Have to push credit cards, warranties, loyalty cards, etc onto people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your employees, and maybe get some training yourselves.

    I have been working at Sport Chalet full-time

    Pros

    Employees are experts at what they sell, great discounts, goal orientation in most facets of the business, great for building business acumen.

    Cons

    Wages are entry level due to current state of the economy, however, worth the job!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay on the same page and commuinicate as much as possible. Keep consistent goal orientations and expectations from staff.
