I have been working at Sports Authority part-time for less than a year

Pros

A good start to getting into a sports career. Helps gain a better understanding of sports companies. It will also test your knowledge of sports and how you can incorporate your knowledge to help the customers find everything they need.`

Cons

There may be times where miscommunication happens. That is probably the only mishap of the job. Sometimes management can be really repetitive on things that have already been thoroughly explained.

    I worked at Sports Authority part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Spiffs and bonuses
    -Fun inventory
    -Pretty easy job when there isn't any stress

    Cons

    -Every other week our focus was on something new. If it wasn't selling insoles, it was getting email addresses, if it wasn't email addresses, it was warranties oh, and then the fun days where you were expected to: Sign everyone up for the loyalty card, get insoles, get warranties and convince them to go online and give the store a 5 rating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop being so focused on all the extras

    I have been working at Sports Authority full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Promotion potential, great co-workers, decent pay

    Cons

    Corporate does not know what it is like to work in the field and payroll cuts like crazy in 2013

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use engagement survey to the company's benefit and listen to what the employees in the field are telling you. In order to provide great customer service, you need to staff the stores (PAYROLL). Bring back the cost +10% discount for managers. What other benefit do they really have over regular associates?
