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 Management

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

    Co-workers that I worked with were awesome.

    Cons

    Lack of growth opportunities. Management had been management for over 15 years and the only way someone would've gotten promoted was if a current manager would have passed away.

    Pros

    Flexible Hours, Friendly environment, Great customer service. It was very import that we made sure every customer was greeted and helped.

    Cons

    They stress the loyalty program. We had to be very pushy to the customers to get them to sign up. We also never seemed to have enough cashiers working at one time.

    Advice to Management

    Have more sales and better advertising. I think people often forget about Sports Authority.
