I have been working at Sports Authority part-time (Less than a 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 Management

More training and more reviews.

    I worked at Sports Authority full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment Benefits were good Product sells itself

    Cons

    Stringent commission goals that cause upper management to behave like high schoolers and make you not want to work Benefits only if you are full time Full timers don't work more than 35 hours unless you are management Low Pay

    Advice to Management

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

    I have been working at Sports Authority full-time (More than a year)

    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 Management

    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.
