Pros

25% employee discount, I loved my direct supervisor- she was wonderful!, average starting rate of pay, good with giving you time off as requested

Cons

Hours are few and far between during off season times, disorganized management, constantly having goals and standards ('loyalty enrollment" or "productivity") being shoved down your throat. High turnover rate for employees

Advice to Management

Don't fire good workers over the tiniest things

    Pros

    Working with customers and in a sports environment.

    Cons

    Ecps, Loyalty, CEI, District Managers, Regional Managers, No hours for good employees, pointless tasking, more worried about petty things than the actual customer.

    Advice to Management

    You say you care about the customers and their experience, but you're lying. You put one manager, cashier, associate in the store throughout the whole day then ask why metrics are bad? Some stores run 4 managers only throughout a whole day. Quit being greedy and realize tasking and customer service won't get accomplished without actual employees. All this is common sense. Being a manager with this company is over the top stressful and one of the worst experiences I've ever had with an occupation. Thanks

    Pros

    Employee discount. Everything else is a joke.

    Cons

    Mindless paperwork , audits and upper management that is bleeding the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all the dead wood, district managers. Care more about your employees. Stop with all the operational junk, sales are what is important. NOT PAPERWORK. Get rid of the Asett protection people, all they are is sales prevention. Come off the high horse. Make sure HR is actually employee friendly.
