    Pros

    The best part about Sports Authority is the amazing discount at the store, and the abaility to use the website 3point5.com. If you are good a sales you can get a quick promotion.

    Cons

    The company only cares about SCALES, and SA promoter. These systems are very flawed. A lot of managers cheat at scales, and SA promoter is flawed because a customer isn't going to get an acurate shopping experience. They will more talk about items that aren't stocked at the store, or the fact that the store sold out of something. They will complain about store that the store can't control. Your store could be great at customer service, but have a horrible SA promoter score. Upper Managerment doesn't care about the employees only about SCALES.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees, stop threating to fire your workers for missing ECPs.

    I worked at Sports Authority full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Big company- systems and training in place, strong communication between corporate and retail
    Fun team- made going in to work a pleasant experience
    Schedule- I was able to manage working full time and ski 5 days a week

    Cons

    Retail pay
    Changes in store management- high turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Motivate your employees- do more outside of work as a team. offer more serious incentives for selling ECPs.
