    I worked at Sports Authority full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Casual dress code.
    Good salary.
    Used to be good benefits, although they are disappearing
    Did I mention the dress code?

    Cons

    No work/life balance
    Managers play favorites, throw others under the bus.
    Cliques nurtured by managers.
    Culture of blame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop believing what your lower managers tell you and get out there and experience the actual goings on for yourselves, you might be surprised at the difference between what you are told and what is real.

    I have been working at Sports Authority part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere to work in, especially if you are the athletic type.
    Learn a lot about various athletic gear.
    Great employee discount!

    Cons

    Low pay/minimal hours
    Horrible training procedures (or lack thereof)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some sort of training system (not just the required computer training, but hands on) so that new employees aren't completely lost when trying to work ECP, AOS, etc. I was given a Sr. Sales Authority to "shadow" in order to learn the trade better, but if you cannot find your "shadow" it is difficult to learn. In summary, MUCH better training is needed. Also, the best way to encourage employees to work hard is to let them know what is needed to be done in order to be considered for promotion.
