I have been working at Sports Authority full-time (more than an year)

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 ManagementAdvice

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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    Pros

    Worked with great people for the most part. High energy work environment, and always something to do on really slow days to pass time. There are a lot of things you can push to sell in store that give you pay bonuses and the work shirts are an awesome air-dry wet-proof thin fabric.

    Cons

    Pay is not the greatest for the high pressure sales required by corporate and other employees will steal your sales without being penalized. Schedule was never up until the last minute sometimes a day after that week hasd started making planning your personal affairs very difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reprimand thieves that steal from co-workers, be sure the coming schedule is out the promised two weeks prior for good notice and more pay is always nice. :)
