Low key job with flexible managers and friendly employees

Former Employee - Cashier in Vernon Hills, IL
Former Employee - Cashier in Vernon Hills, IL

I worked at Sports Authority part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good perks for working there and a fun environment in dealing with sporting goods. Great job for the summer and extra cash. Working the holidays are a little stressful but keep you busy.

Cons

Occasionally disorganized as far as promotions and sale items are concerned. Some of the managers seem as though they were just hired from a knowledge standpoint

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with a little respect, they are people too, not just a tool to help you get more coverage plans and insoles.
