I worked at Sports Authority

Pros

the discount is good, some of the employees were cool, good hours, close to home, can be creative at times

Cons

If you dont enjoy retail work, then this job is not for you. Its pretty repetitive in nature, the job pays you what the job is worth

Advice to ManagementAdvice

give feed back to the employees and let them know how their doing when they do something well, not just when you need more ecps or better customer service scores.
