I have been working at Sports Authority

Pros

I really enjoy the people I work with. It definitely makes the job better working with people who are fun to be around

Cons

Not enough training. I was just thrown into different areas and just expected to be able to effectively help customers which was difficult at the beginning

  2. Strong recognizable brand name but a hollow, unorganized and inexperienced team leading the way.

    I have been working at Sports Authority full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great location located in Englewood (Denver), Colorado
    Fun Retail Category working in a slow growth category of Sporting Goods
    Work Environment is fair but living in one of the most active communities in the US provides for a very healthy lifestyle.

    Cons

    Private Equity owners are very inconsistent, not transparent and untrustworthy creating real insecurity, low moral and lack of loyalty across enterprise. They have had more than 5 Chief Marketing Officers in less than 7 years, this is a BIG problem. No clear customer direction has been communicated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be Real, Be Authentic, start to Innovate and Be Bold
    Stronger commitment to vision and improve communication across entire enterprise

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
