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

Pros

I loved working in Team Sports, loved helping customers and being able to use my sports knowledge in an effort to help customers. They dont ask much from associates other than to simply approach customers and at least try and make some sales, which is not terribly difficult when people are mindlessly staring at random products. Loved the benefits of working there, good hours, great managers.

Cons

Incredibly boring when no.customers are present. Often spent my time playing street hockey in the aisles or bouncing tennis balls for hours. Had a 36 hour sale once and had three customers come in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Market better.

    I worked at Sports Authority full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fun products to work with

    Cons

    Senior Management have different expectations from store level managers. Some only want you to micromanage some want you to macro manage. No set standards with management across different levels. Favoritism runs strong in this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a set standards for managers across different levels. District Managers should expect the same things from managers as all other District Managers. DM's should not decide on management styles differently from others.
