I worked at Sports Authority part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Good work/ life balance. Discount. Management was mostly ok.

Cons

commission compensation, benefits, and I noticed signs of it being more of a "Who you know" to get promoted kind of company. Was in line for a promotion after a employee left (who I'll admit had been there longer than I but, not once performed better than I did.) She left for three months then, returned and they promoted her instead of me. A week after she returned.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep your employees informed. It sucked being laid off on Christmas Eve.

    I worked at Sports Authority

    Pros

    Selling sports equipment and spreading your knowledge of the products to the customers. Pretty laid back. Don't try to steal.

    Cons

    Management puts stupid demands for ecp's. Extended Coverage Plans. Associates would probably try harder if their were more and bigger incentives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change isn't always good.

    I have been working at Sports Authority part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    most of the people I worked with are nice. Good place for first job. Hiring process was fast.

    Cons

    training or lack there of I was thrown in to the fire when I first joined. They don't take steps to teach you procedures they just hold you accountable and assume you know everything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
