    I worked at Sports Authority full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    * An easy transition into the "working world" from college
    * Met some lifelong friends
    * A lot of things are spoon-fed to you

    Cons

    * The culture at the company and moral is terrible
    * You do the same repetative thing like a monkey every day
    * You're not encouraged to use your brain
    * Some middle managers treat you terribly-insult you, cuss at you, yell when you make a mistake
    * Your "mentor" is too busy/stressed out to help you
    * Other people resent you for being part of MTP and getting training they never got
    * You are stuck as an "allocator" for a minimum 2 years before you can even think of moving to the buying side of things
