I have been working at Sports Authority full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good clothes, shoes, gear, and the people you meet. Fellow employees? Let's just say, keep them at work and leave it at that.

Cons

Messy, impossible to keep up with, lazy co-workers, and too much is demanded.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop showing favoritism, practice what you preach, provide a better working environment for employees, and give some incentive for employees to grow with the company. There is too much turnover rate in my location, the best employees quit from what I've observed. Then the good employees that are still there, are being overworked while Management socializes with the procrastinators. It isn't fair. All that Management cares about is their sales and results. When you do perform well, they don't care to thank you. They say, "give me some more." Unless you're one of the popular or favored, there is no future for anyone there. You can be the best salesperson, but, if you're not brown-nosing, it doesn't even matter. Those who plan to apply here, best beware, you will be sucked dry until you are not longer needed.

    Pros

    The benefits are not bad.

    Cons

    Stressful environment, blame mentality, given strict deadlines with no approved overtime, and they expect you to be cheerful and happy on top of it.
