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

Pros

Good people in a good location. It was fun and happy before someone came along and fired so many people. There are fun things like vendors setting up in the parking lot with giveaways and food trucks. Casual dress code is nice (no flip flops or t-shirts).

Cons

Old building, tiny gym (it's a sporting goods company!), unethical practices in regards to growth and salary (HR). Everyone is constantly scared so lots of micro-managing and useless "firedrills." Took away discount, flex-time, pandora...no one is happy here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay the people who matter, upgrade everything. At least pretend you care.

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

    Pros

    The store manager did a really good job at staffing, he also took pride in the store, which was good to see. All my fellow co-workers were really helpful and friendly.
    Also the hours were decent.

    Cons

    I really don't have a lot of bad things to say about them. Like most places the sell warranties, there was a gentle emphasis on selling the, but it wasn't overbearing by any means.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring good staff.
