    Pros

    Worked with and met some great people at the store level but that doesnt translate into a good company what so ever. When a company goes through 3 CEOs in 2 years they cant expect anyone to have much faith in them.

    Cons

    Company is going out of business so there is no point to get involved with any sort of management. I worked at a store near the corporate offices and met a lot of the high ups there. After a few failed buy outs because of its competitors it became clear that no company would ever get involved with TSA as long as they have the stadium and a relatively unskilled upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Starting pay for managers is around 12.30 but you are expected to work ridiculous hours, made to take PDOs when stores are over hours, and expected to work off the clock.

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

    Pros

    A couple times a year we get a cost + 10% discount. Which pretty much means that everything is at least 50% off.

    Cons

    The management at my store was horrible. The store manager couldn't handle anything, the floor managers would sit around and watch football all day, and almost all the managers picked favorites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training and more reviews.

    Doesn't Recommend
