    I worked at Sports Authority part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice place to work in and... that's it...

    Cons

    Mediocre pay with raises only after you work for an eternity or shortness of staff. Managers will NOT train you and you will have to learn as you go. And when you make learning mistakes the managers blame YOU for not knowing. Poor management, making you focus on just selling Extended Coverage Programs (ECP's) with little concern for giving facts to customers.

    Advice to Management

    Please train properly and give a bigger crap about your employees. Don't just act concerned when corporate is coming to visit.

    I have been working at Sports Authority full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    25% Employee Discount and occasional Cost +10% Discount. Spiffs. Friendly work environment.

    Cons

    Too Corporate, Needs to be More Store Driven. Corporate gets on the stores for every little detail. Trust the Stores and store managers a little more to run the store correctly. Not enough Stock on a lot of things and a corporate ordering system, once again should be run at the store level, the store obviously knows what it needs. Not enough Spiffed items.

    Advice to Management

    Hey Corporate, the stores would probably run better on there own without a new planogram coming out every other week, or not having enough merchandise in stock because the store can't order it. Loosen the reigns a little and try it, maybe try to have the stores run this way and answer to the District Manager, but still running somewhat independently.
