    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 part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great Manager, easy workload, relaxed atmosphere, flexible schedule, employee discount.
    I really enjoyed working here, if I hadn't been moving from the area I'd still be there.

    Cons

    pay & I can say I wouldn't want to work there as part of the management team...for the pay they receive it isn't worth the pressure placed on them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop buying last seasons stuff in bulk at a discount to stock the store next year and give your associates updated merchandise to sell...If you do that you will blow the competition (who's name glassdoor won't allow me to type.) out of the water! (Oh and for the love of all that is holy, get rid of the Soybu merchandise that is horrific and usually results in snickers and giggles rather than sales.)
