Current Employee - Store Manager in Gainesville, VA
Current Employee - Store Manager in Gainesville, VA

I have been working at Sports Authority full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Benefits, discounts, internal development, training, and many advancements from within. With new CEO in place we are beginning to see a good future. Highly supportive of him. People person and speaks to everyone. He is just not all talk. Does what he says. Foss is the right guy.

Cons

Work Life Balance. Changing of 3 CEO in the last 6 years. No hunt and fishing in stores.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work life balance. People need to spend time with their families on Thanksgiving and Easter Sunday. Corporate office receive many perks but stores are left with pictures from how much fun they have in Denver.
Benefit perks are for Denver based. There needs to be funds for team building. We see pictures all the time of Denver having fun doing, races, runs and events.

    Pros

    Company is currently focused on developing a very positive work culture and seems to be working. Great coworkers and management. Advancement opportunities for the young, innovative mindset. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Serious systems issues. Stuck in the 80's and getting new processes/systems implemented is almost impossible with such high turnover on a very small I.S. staff. Often, company brings in "off-shore" help to handle maintenance issues, but the language barrier makes the process even more difficult and frustrating. Due to these problems, many teams find new ways to work around the current issues rather than fixing them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in new systems and the support needed to properly maintain them.
