When will the sale be completed/

Management (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsI have a job to support my family. For now.
Cost plus 10% days (which brings the price down to what you would pay at Walmart but hey, we appreciate your hard work!)

Conswhere to start?
Scheduling to minimum hours=management only works 32 hours a week...nice paycut!
Part time staff, which is supposed to be 60% of the workforce, gets 10 hrs a week
Part time staff makes minumum wage with a chance at a raise once a year....for 17 cents Per Hour
Company is doing so poorly that stores that would have been on action plans in the past are top performers....gotta love the bell curve!
New Small store format? at the rate we are going, all stores will have the sales of a small store format
seasonal directives are changed daily
 4 updates to outdoors in a two week period? and no clue as to what goes where?
Work load goes up, hours available to complete mandated changes to store layout are no longer available. (minimum hours required regardless of tasking required) and dont forget corporate visitors!
CEI expectation is that 71% of the customers surveyed must be "highly satisfied" and mention names on the survey. ? 71% of the customers never see an associate except the cashier in most stores.
most comments left from customers are " couldnt find anyone on the floor,( nobody scheduled) couldnt find anyone to open fitting rooms, couldnt find what i was looking for (because it is in the backroom)

Loyalty signups expected to be at a minimum 35% conversion......if below you need to have "conversations with your underperformers", run clinics, doesnt matter if the day before you ran a 50%, hey, the cashiers are running the store from the frontend while the managers are working frieght. too much room for fraud..asset protection is looking for loyalty abuse rather than stopping that guy who just ran out the front doors with an arm full of North Face and Nike shoes

Advice to Senior Managementlisten to your employees. they are frustrated and out looking for a different job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    There is a reason why the training department is always hiring

    Training & Development (Former Employee)
    Englewood, CO

    I worked at Sports Authority full-time


    Pros: You get to wear jeans every day; some departments have… Cons: Mediocre pay; little meaningful career development opportunities; two straight years of negative sales; Management now… Advice to Senior Management: Management fully understands they have a problem retaining top talent but aren't interested in fixing it. Sales are so low that they are focused on… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Company is going the wrong direction

    Softlines Team Leader (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

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


    Pros: Associate discounts, but does not meet industry standard. Flexible schedule… Cons: Micro-managed and inefficient. Directives and seasonal changes are not allocated… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
